Townsville Art and Framing are the exclusive distributors of the high-quality, classic Italian Berlini Frames.
Prints, photographs and posters are dry mounted using archival adhesives in a cold press to avoid ink dispersion, this is the professional industry standard for mounting- eliminating bubbling or lifting.
The substrate used to mount artwork is an acid free paper, with a foam core insert, specially designed to insulate the artwork from ambient temperature changes, thus avoiding condensation on the inside of the glass in times of high humidity levels.
Matting, is not only used for decorative purposes, but also to keep the glass off the artwork.
It will also absorb any moisture that may potentially get inside the glass, by acting as a sponge to soak up the trapped moisture away from the artwork; once this has been done it will then promote mildew growth on the mat area rather than damaging the artwork.
The hanging system is of premium quality incorporating Swiss quality D-rings with stainless steel wire to avoid corrosion.
A three way hanger is attached which allows the weight to be distributed between three points and avoids joint separation.
DUST AND MOISTURE PROOFING
