Our stretcher frames feature high quality ALL-BASSWOOD CONSTRUCTION, including our fully lap-jointed crossbars, interior corner braces, rust-proof hardware, hidden pocket screws and the finest construction techniques. This results in the highest quality, best value stretcher frames on the market.


We build standard STRAINERS in (4) styles: Our Museum-Quality PROBARS in a multitude of depths, Our new PROBAR LITES, which utilizes less material to create a lighter frame, Our "A" Bars at 1-3/4"D and "B" Bars at 1"D, both for smaller, more economical frames. These can be permanently joined at their mitered corners and crossbars or collapsible using custom "dovetail" hardware. This allows them to shipped broken down and re-assembled.


Barronarts also builds museum & conservator-preferred MECHANICAL EXPANSION PROBARS. These utilize fully expandable TITE-JOINT hardware for extremely accurate adjustments to your canvas or linen. They are also fully collapsible and can be shipped worldwide. Available in all depths and also as large-scale FOLDABLE frames. They are simply the finest stretchers available.


We build custom CIRCLES (Tondos), SHAPES of all kinds (Triangle, Quadrangles, Trapezoids, Altar-piece shape or any other shape required) and we can fully stretch canvas or linen on everything..


In addition, all PRO BARS are available using FOLDABLE construction, which involves custom- designed connecting plates and installation hardware. This allows virtually any oversized painting to be folded in half or thirds upon completion to facilitate transporting and installation.
