Stretched using the proprietary MuseumWrap method that yields balanced canvas tension across the surface of up to 50% tighter than other methods. Expertly constructed, Monet Pro provides superior frame support using a patent pending keyable cross brace technology for sizes 20x20 and up. The canvas stays tighter due to the drum-tight stretch, and because the cross braces prevent the stretcher bars from bowing inward and the canvas from slackening. To increase canvas tension, slightly expand the size of the frame by forcing the corner keys and brace keys further into their respective slots. This unique system makes it possible to tension the canvas in the middle of the frame, where the tension is needed the most.
The 1-1/2" deep Stretcher Bar offers a very strong support and yields a full 1/2" relief to the canvas, thereby preventing those unsightly lines created when the canvas touches the Bar underneath. Folded Corners and extra canvas selvage leave the canvas uncut and intact and re-stretchable on the same size frame. The clean staple -free edges are perfect for an elegant frameless display. The precision machined, solid-wood, finger-joint free, kiln-dried Bars are milled with lumber harvested from the sustainable forests of Oregon and California.
