Similar to tray frames but a more slimline offering. Works are often reverse Perspex float mounted with only a minimal gap between the work and the moulding.

The tray frame is perfect for photographic prints that have been dry mounted and don’t necessarily require glazing. The print is set back slightly below the face of the frame to prevent damage. Tray frames are a good way to display large prints without the cost of specialist glazing. Your print is mounted to Dibond or aluminium for rigidity and then floated in the frame with a space between the work and the frame moulding.

This is a stylish take on the box frame, with your print mounted inside the box, rather than fitted edge to edge. Your print is mounted to 2mm Aluminium to create a sleek borderless surround for your print. There is a gap between the work and the moulding creating  a ‘floating’ effect.

Box frames create a space between the print and the glazing, so there is no contact with the glass. Using Waterwhite float glass, your print is mounted first to Foamboard or a similar substrate before being set into a box moulding with a fillet spacer. The fillet keeps the glass and print separate, so the whole effect is that of a deep box. Box frames are a contemporay design with traditional leanings and can be made with a deep or shallow profile.

The black option has a deep, black satin finish, which is perfect for showing off strong photographic prints.Available in: narrow: (15mm) and wide: (20mm)

We have thousands of frame mouldings available to complement your chosen frame style

We have an extensive range of Framing Glass available. The most exciting advances have been in the Specialist Glass area. As well as protection from UV damage there are a number of ranges of glass that have been treated to become almost invisible. As standard we use Water White Float glass in 2mm and 3mm thicknesses giving optimum colour rendition.

Water White Museum Glass is ideal for deep frames and shadow boxes where UV protection, low reflectance and clarity of image are critical.

Other Glass Options

We also use the Schoot Mirogard range of specialist glasses. We stock anti reflective Mirogard WaterWhite Glass in 2mm, 3mm and 4mm. Also Mirogard Plus, which has a UV protective coating, and Mirogard Protect, a 4.4mm laminated glass for ultimate protection, blocking 99% of harmful UV light and with low iron giving zero colour shifts.

TruVue Glass comes with various options. Conservation Clear is a 2.5mm float glass with a UV protection. Reflection Control is an acid etched, low reflection glass that comes both with and without a UV coating. TruVue’s Water White AR (without UV protection) and Museum glass (with UV protection) are exceptionally clear types of glass that are almost invisible due to TruVue’s proprietary manufacturing process
