Stretcher Bars

Stretcher Bars at Pegasus Art - good quality laminated (non-warping) stretcher bars. Three different profiles: 4.5cm deep Gallery Wrap Museum 45 heavy duty stretcher bars; the sturdy 2cm deep range Classic No 6 standard stretcher bars: the lighter weight fine profile, 1.8cm deep Classic No 4' Stretcher Bars. Build your own canvas from these pairs of stretcher bars available in a wide range of lengths and remember the stretcher cross bars that add strength and stability to the larger canvas stretcher frames.

All the Stretcher Bars are manufactured from environmental sourced wood in Europe. They are independently certificated by PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and guaranteed to be from re-newable forestry. The PEFC ensure that forests are managed properly and meet economic and environment criteria as well as promoting sustainable forest management.

These canvas stretcher bars are 'easy to fit together' mitred stretcher bars which are cut from laminated cross-grained wood pieces. This dramatically minimises any warping of the lengths - a big bonus for artists. Your stretcher frames will stay square and true with these strong and reliable canvas stretcher bars.

The chunky museum stretcher bars are good for either gallery wrap or museum wrap canvases. 'Gallery wrap' is where the canvas and the image or painting goes all the way around the sides of the frame and is secured at the back of the stretcher bars. 'Museum wrap' also goes all the way around the side of the frame and secures at the back, but the whole image is only on the front surface of the canvas and the sides are either left blank or coloured to suit the artwork. A 'standard wrap' is where the canvas is secured at the side of the frame (rather than at the back) and our classic stretcher bars are better suited to this.

We can supply stretcher bars in bulk or for just one frame with free UK mainland delivery on orders over £50. Prices shown include VAT.

If you can not find the size dimensions that you are looking for then we also offer a bespoke canvas making service that caters for the more specific requirements for artist canvases. Feel free to contact us and a member of the team will be glad to help you.
