An Introduction to Fredrix Stretcher Bars

By Editor123 Subscribe to RSS | November 30th 2011 | Views:

It is natural to feel a little concerned about the quality of canvas stretcher bars while buying them. There are many different kinds of stretcher bars available in the market today. There are practically dozens of brands to choose from, and you can even have them made by special order.

No matter how and where you get your canvas stretcher bars from, you need to be careful about the quality of the bars. You see, these bars and frames, when they are used to stretch large pieces of canvas, are subjected to enormous amounts of pressure. This, in turn, makes them prone to bending and warping. In some extreme cases, stretcher bars have also been known to have snapped under this pressure.

Some cheap quality bars (which are also, not surprisingly, rather low priced) use either low quality wood or defective engineering that makes them particularly susceptible to such problems. Buying such bars can actually rob you of your peace of mind. If you really want a permanent and dependable solution for stretching canvas, you must insist on using the best quality stretcher bars and frames that you can get for your money.
