Most framing projects are relatively straight forward and only require basic methods to complete. However, we regularly encounter situations that are more extraordinary, involving items that are extremely fragile, three dimensional, very large, or very heavy. How do you securely and attractively display these items without damaging them? Solving the challenges they present are one of the aspects of framing that we enjoy the most. We approach these challenges from an engineering perspective, applying advanced structural solutions to ensure the safest display.
In a typical framing project, the frame is the structural element, relying solely on the strength of the moulding for support. With an engineered approach, more often than not the backing becomes the structure to which the objects are attached and supported; the frame becomes more of a decorative element added at the end. Many times we will develop, manufacture, and create our own methods of attachment, support, and structure. To achieve this we use skills and materials not commonly found in the framing industry. These methods include welding, carpentry, and carving. We often utilize materials such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum, rubber, acrylic, laser cut and 3d printed parts, carbon fiber, led lighting, masonite, foam insulation, copper, pvc pipe, and more.
We pride ourselves on finding creative, attractive, sturdy and sound solutions to the challenges that are often presented to us by our customers.
