7235 Brace Bar Sockets Adjustable pack 2
When dealing with larger stretcher frames for canvas there is often a need to fit brace bars to minimise bowing of the frame.
Many LION stretcher bars are notched for ready-made brace bars with tongues on the ends, but for stretchers without the notches, these adjustable Brace Bar Sockets are ideal.
The alternative method uses moulded Brace Bar Sockets which screw onto the inside faces of opposite stretcher bars. The sockets take Brace Bar Profile timber, 18mm x 44mm. The back face of the socket is 72mm x 19mm with holes for two screws.
Brace Bar profile is square-cut to length and laid into the sockets. Oval holes on the sides take screws to hold the profile in and allow for the effective length to be adjusted to tension the frame.
Brace Bar Sockets used in combination with Brace Bar Strip profile have a variety of uses:
• Retro-fit to stretched canvases which are bowing
• Fit to new Stretcher frames that do not have cut-outs for Brace Bars or where the correct size Brace Bar is not available
• Add strength to stretcher frames made with stretcher profile in lengths
• Use also to strengthen traditional picture frames where there is sufficient rebate depth
Brace Bar strip profile, L1939, is 18mm x 44mm and is supplied in random lengths, typically around 3m. Please order strip in metres - we will round up to the nearest full length.
