Custom Stretcher Bar lengths: metric and fractional inches

Finding custom length stretcher bars for your projects can be difficult. At Stretcher Bar Warehouse we simplify this process by allowing you to order custom sized stretcher bars in metric or fractional inches. This means you will have the exact size necessary for your needs. As our bars are made in house, and in most cases they can be shipped the same day. Our machinery allows us to create the same sleeved connection you are used to, allowing the stretcher bars to be easily joined without any special tools. Our custom bars can be used with any of our other bars of the same style. Please call or write, if you need custom sized bars. We look forward to working with you.

LIGHT DUTY BAR 5/8" (Lightweight) Deep x 1 3/16" Width:

These bars are perfect for smaller paintings or giclee prints that won't gain any benefit from a thicker bar. They have a rounded edge that relieves the stress on the canvas. This reduces rips and cracking of the canvas because, unlike bars with sharp edges, there is less tension exerted by a rounded edge. For bars over 30," we recommend using braces to maintain frame integrity.

STANDARD DUTY STRETCHER BAR (Standard) 3/4" Deep x 1 5/8" Wide:

The most widely used stretcher bar, they have a raised, rounded-over edge that helps reduce friction and creates a much more even, tight stretch. In addition to evenly distributing the tension more than sharp edges, the eased edges allow a "fudge factor" for gallery wraps. Cross braces are recommended for larger prints, where stretching might create bowing in the wood. These bars are known in the industry as 3/4," however, they are actually 11/16."

MEDIUM/HEAVY DUTY STRETCHER BAR (Goldilocks) 1 1/4" Deep x 1 1/4" Wide:

Goldilock bars are perfect when a deeper stretcher bar is wanted, but the expense of heavier bars is not justified. They are visually close to the 1 1/2" depth of heavy duty stretcher bars, while costing a fraction of the price. Cross braces are recommended with larger canvases or when stretching tightly.

HEAVY DUTY STRETCHER BAR (Midi) 1 1/2" Deep x 1 1/2" Wide:

Midis are much more affordable than the super heavy duty bars while providing an identical 1 1/2" depth. The edges are eased (rounded), providing less resistance and a more even distribution of the stretch and significantly less cracking. We recommend using cross braces when lengths exceed 45 inches.

SUPER HEAVY DUTY STRETCHER (Heavy Duty) BAR 1 1/2" Deep x 2" Wide:

A two inch width, coupled with 1 1/2" depth, make these our strongest bar. Like our other bars, the edges are eased, which helps prevent cracking of the canvas by reducing resistance. You'll get a tighter stretch with less effort. We recommend cross braces for bars over 50 inches"
