L1939 Brace Bar for Stretcher Bars

Brace bars minimise the bowing of a larger stretcher frame

With larger or odd-shaped 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 each end to fit.

This alternative method uses moulded brace bar sockets which screw onto the inside faces of opposite stretcher bars. The back face of a socket is 72mm x 19mm with two holes for screws.

The wooden brace bar strip profile, 18mm x 44mm, is square cut to length and laid into the sockets. Oval holes take screws and allow for the effective length to be adjusted. 

Please order in metres, we will round up to the nearest full length. Lengths are usually 3m but can vary.

Brace Bar Strip wood profile used in combination with Brace Bar Sockets have a variety of uses:

• Retro-fit to stretched canvas frames where brace bars have not been fitted

• Fit to Stretcher Bars that do not have a cut-out for Brace Bars or where the correct size Brace Bar is not available. Slotted screw holes in the Sockets allow for re-tensioning

• Add strength to stretcher frames made with stretcher profile in lengths

• Use to strengthen traditional frames where there is sufficient rebate depth

Brace Bar strip profile is 18mm x 44mm and is supplied in varying lengths, typically around 3m. Please order in metres, we will round up to the nearest full length.
