Best Light Duty Stretcher Bars

Quality stretcher bars are not just another piece of wood. At BEST Artist Products, every bar is selected from the finest raw material. The bars must be free of knots and completely straight. BEST offers a world of museum quality stretcher bars: Gallery Wrap Bars, Aluminum Pro-Bars, Heavy-duty Pine Super Bars, Medium-duty Bars, Lightweight Bars, as well as Cross Braces. All the bars are designed so that the canvas is always a full 1⁄2" from the stretcher bar to insure that there will be no “ghost” impressions on the canvas. The rounded back edge reduces surface friction and allows for a smoother, tighter draw of the fabric for a snug, more even painting surface. BEST stretcher bars are designed by artists and made from kiln-dried pine. They are the finest made today.

The lightweight bars are manufactured from white pine. There is a greater supply of pine in the thinner and shorter length, so we use the high quality white pine for these bars. Extremely useful in small paintings are the lightweight bars. These bars can save you money and make framing a little easier. Caution: The lightweight bars are not for use on large paintings.

Note: Price is per piece, not pair. These light duty stretcher bars are made to fit with each other and will not interlock with other brands.
