U Channel Frames are made from specially designed U-shaped aluminium extrusions with one longer leg and an interlocking profile. They are designed to glue to the back of boards as a hidden backing frame.
These U channel frames are designed to stiffen the board as well as providing the hanging point. Furthermore, they provide spacing from the wall or a floating effect to the finished works. U Channel Frames work with any boards but are especially good with acrylics where there is no ability attach fixings with screws.
U Channel Frames are normally hung from a matching U Channel hanger or rail. These match and lock onto the frame much like a split baton. As an alternative, we can fit 2 D Rings onto the frame.
U Channel frames come in 2 sizes -the small (12mm) size and the large (23mm) size. Large U Channel frames are joined on corners with metal joiners for additional strength.
