The Platform Frame provides a "floating" platform onto which you mount your (uncradled or unbraced) art work onto. This design does not limit itself to encaustics alone, it can be used for mounting tiles, mosaics, hard-backed canvas board and so on. Ideal for use with our standard ready cut birch Flat Panels.
Glue artwork onto the platform with silicon or liquid nails, this eliminates the need for pressure on the artwork. Or alternatively, any good wood glue will do.
The platform sits 12mm below the surface of the frame, allowing for a range of panel thicknesses to sit recessed after attachment. The frame itself has a frame face width of 10mm and the frame depth on the outside is 33mm.
When choosing a platform frame, the size refers to the size of your panel. We have listed some common standard sizes for easy ordering but if your art panel size is not on the list, don’t worry we will make the frame according to your art panel size.
(Birch flat panels to suit these frames can be purchased from our flat panel range on the Boards & Panels page.)
Once your art panel is glued, the frame allows a 5mm gap between the edge of your art work and the inside edge of the frame (creating the appearance of your artwork floating in its frame).
All hardware is included – Gallery grade plastic coated wire, D rings, screws and bumpers.
