The NEW Tetenal 'slow grown' Canvas Stretcher Bars From only £0.81 per pair (+vat)
When creating a stretcher frame, it is very important to look at the profile of the stretcher bars that are to be used (the style of cutting the wood).
Stretching artist canvas on wooden stretcher bars, or stretching your printed photo on canvas, it is very important to use stretcher bars of a consistent quality.
Wooden stretcher bars exist in many different sizes and styles and choosing the right stretcher bar is important in regards to how the final product / stretched canvas / printed canvas will look and feel.
That is why our NEW Stretcher Bars from Tetenal are made from slow growing Nordic Pine wood, which means that the wood is very strong compared to pine and other species of wood coming from southern parts of Europe.
Why is slow grown wood stonger? According to the Centre for Wood Science and Technology, a faster growing tree grows more earlywood, relative to the amount of latewood, and so the timber is less dense, and typically less strong as a result.
The Scandinavian FSC® Certified production factory, founded in 1938, is driven by the third generation of a very successful and highly professional family of experts, trusted with the manufacture our Tetenal Stretcher Bars, to always ensure the perfect stretcher bar for the global art and printing business.
