Artwork Protection

All our frames are built to either a conservation or museum standard. We strive to offer only the highest quality archival materials for every job.

Conservation Standard

Our Conservation Standard is the basic level of protection that all our frames adhere to. This standard uses high quality materials that protect against acid and chemical damage, offering sufficient protection for the majority of works.

  • Conservation Standard

    • Conservation mounting techniques that can include hinges and tabs attached to artworks. All materials, papers, and tapes are acid free.
    • Standard glazing or UV protective glazing. We can easily upgrade to museum glazing if anti-reflection is required.
    • Conservation mountboards are used throughout. We exclusively use Nielsen Bainbridge Artcare™ mountboards for all of our Conservation Standard frames. Artcare™ boards contain natural zeolites which actively absorb any harmful gases, particulates, or polution trapped in the air inside the frame.
    • High quality MDF and acid free barrier paper is used for the backings of each frame
    • Only acid free tapes and hinges are used throughout each frame and to finally seal the finished frame

Museum Standard

For any work that needs a higher level of protection, our Museum Standard offers the use of the highest quality materials available, including ArtGlass™ Museum Glass, 100% cotton Rising™ Museum Boards, Meridian™ and Rising™ backing boards and barrier boards. Only mounting options that are fully reversible and leave no traces or damage are chosen for our Museum Standard frames. Each frame also uses subframes and split-baton hangings to offer extremely secure installations.
