Lion 18" (457mm) Premium Stretcher Bars - 5 Pairs (10 Bars) with twenty wedges.
Classic stretcher bar profile on finger jointed pine
NEW PROFILE - In April 2021 Lion switched the sourcing of their Premium Stretcher Bars to their main stretcher bar supplier - same great quality and also FSC® certified. Premium Stretcher Bars also now have their own Brace Bar.
These new Lion Premium bars are a slightly different profile which means they are not compatible with any old stock of Premium Stretcher Bars that you may have. If this will pose a problem, just contact us here.
Made from finger-jointed, edge-laminated pine, which makes them straight and knot-free
Lion 18" Premium Stretcher Bars are made of quality timber, giving high accuracy of machining, and are supplied with wooden wedges.
LION Premium Stretcher Bar Dimensions:
Length: 18"/ 457mm
Inner height: 16mm
Ten stretcher bars with twenty wedges included.
Please note: Sizes 762mm and larger are notched to take Brace Bars, minimising the possibility of long sides bowing under tension. Brace Bars are sold separately.

More LION Stretcher Bar Information:
Stretched canvases can lose tension over time. Slotted corner joints allow the customer to tap wooden wedges, supplied with each pair of stretcher bars, into the corner, opening it up very slightly and re-tensioning the canvas.
LION stretcher bars are made to the highest specification and subject to careful quality control throughout production. Special attention to the shaping of the bar and corner joints guarantees that all of our bars fit neatly together and lie flat against the wall.
LION stretcher bars are purpose made, ready to assemble into any size. All have a bevelled edge meaning that the stretched canvas will not show an imprint of the bars, and are designed for a seamless fit at the corners.
• No special tools are needed to assemble slotted Stretcher Bars. We recommend a soft faced hammer to tap the corners together.
• Wooden wedges supplied with every pair are tapped into corner slots to allow re-tensioning of canvas.
• The edges are precision machined which gives a crisp edge with minimal risk of cracking the canvas.
• Careful machining of the slots means the bars slot together neatly and lie flat against the wall.
