What is Conservation Framing?
Sometimes its the unforeseen details that are almost always the most important..
Conservation framing aims to protect the longevity, while enhancing the beauty, of a piece of art. Specialist methods, materials and reversible techniques are designed to preserve artwork while ensuring that the artwork can be released, if necessary, from the framing with minimal material change.
Acid-free materials and archival methods with neutral, reversible, mounting of artworks, spaced away from UV-filtered glass using mounts or wrapped fillets.
In addition to all the features of conservation level: highest UV glazing, cotton rag mounts, Japanese hinging and extra isolating materials are used.
The reverse of the frame won't normally be seen but is important to know what's involved; Hinging material, acid-free Artbak, sub-frames, strainer along with secure hanging system. Our Verso Labels show glass used, frame profile, colour ( by name ) along with a Stamped date accompanied by the Signature of the Framer upon completion.
