Alu-Pro Aluminium Stretcher Bars and Alu-Pro Stretched Canvases
Alu-Pro Aluminium Stretcher Bars are of museum quality. The strong but lightweight aluminium bars are incredibly stable, do not warp and are simply the best quality. The conservation benefits and archival properties of the aluminium mean that Alu-Pro canvases can easily be stored in damp studios where traditional painting surfaces would warp. Being lightweight they are easy to transport.
The outer wood profile allows for easy stapling of the canvas around to the back. The bars are available in a depth of 25mm or 45mm and at lengths of 40cm to 200cm. We can also cut these to your required size, with 200cm being the maximum size because of shipping. But you can extend to larger sizes with the extender bars.
The Alu-Pro stretcher bars are easy to assemble with four corner connectors required for each canvas and an allen key. The structure is so stable that cross bars are not required until after you exceed 120x120cm. The cross bars for very large canvases are attached with additional connectors.
Alu-Pro Stretched Canvases are made with high quality, 440gsm pure linen. The Belgian linen is prepared and processed using traditional methods. Canvases come with one layer of hide glue and are primed with three layers of acrylic gesso. The natural drying process takes place in a warm, ventilated space.
This high-quality canvas is stretched over the Alu-Pro aluminium stretcher bars to create a strong, stable, lightweight surface ready to be painted on. They are stapled on the back so the sides of the canvas can be painted.
The stretched canvases are available in sizes from 60x80cm up to 120x180cm. Alu-Pro Canvases are eco-friendly and sustainably produced.
