Multiple Braces may be ordered for each frame
Dimension: 3/4'' x 3 1/4'' (twice as large as most other braces)
Only solid wood is used, not finger-jointed wood which tends to bend or break under pressure
Precision machined at each end which allows the Brace to be inserted into our B2 Stretcher Bar.
Our special keys/wedges can be inserted at each end which gives the frame support, should the frame need to be expanded, which increases the canvas tension.
Special Groove is machined on both edges which accepts Masterpiece® Cross Braces.
Multiple Crosses are easily constructed for large frames, even up to 144'' x 144''
Patented bracing system.
Does not work with other manufacturer's Stretcher Bars.
The Masterpiece® Professional Brace is part of a patented system to offer the artist the best method to brace a Stretched Canvas. The Brace is quite substantial, and strong enough to support frames up to 144'' x 144''.
How to order this product:
We recommend ordering one brace for every 36'' of frame length. For example, if your frame is a 84x120 B2 style, you should order 3 Professional Braces for the 84'' dimension, which will span the 120'' frame length. (Or 120 36 = 3.33, disregarding the .33).
This size must be shipped by truck, as the tubular box is longer than can be shipped by UPS.
