box-framing-imgBox framing, also known as spacer framing creates a space or a gap between the print and glazing in a way that there is no contact with the glass. It uses a fillet or a spacer which is found on the inner edge of the frame. It separates the artwork and glass of the frame. This space allows for a contemporary aesthetic look to be gained. Apart from this advantage, the separation between the piece of artwork and the glass of the frame is also conducive in preventing any damage that may otherwise be caused. In case, there is no spacing then it might damage your prints due to condensation. Condensation results in water damage or other issues arise as a result of mould growth. In some cases, mildew may damage the art or it may cause the surface of the image to deteriorate.

Box framing employs a water white float glass. The print of your art work is mounted on to a foam board or some other similar substrate after which it is set into a box moulding. The box moulding has a fillet spacer which allows a space to be created between the print and the glazing. It is important to keep the glass and print separate as it will prevent damage to the piece of art. Box frames which are more of contemporary designs are employed with traditional leanings. They can be made with a deep or shallow profile. Once the frame has been completed, appropriate fixings are added to the backside of the box frame so as to allow it to hang.

Box framing is deemed by many quarters as being ideal for 3d artworks. This is because it can be adjusted to accommodate your work.

As one of the best Picture Framer in East London, our skilled staff is capable of giving you advice not only for box framing but also on the hanging systems. We develop box frames keeping in mind the picture in question and the room where it will be hung. You may visit our Art Gallery in Wanstead or Art Gallery in London to view a vast collection of box frames.
