Canvas Floater Frames -- A Dramatic Difference When Done Right
Franken Frames offers many styles of floater frames. We have floater frame profiles in a stair step shape which has the float space built in so you simple order the floater the same size as the canvas. The other option is a " L " shaped floater and on this style you will have to add for the float space you prefer. This style is adjustable so you can do as little as a 1/8" float or as much as a 3/4" float. If you want a 1/4" float just add a 1/2" to the width and height of you canvas. We also offer panels floaters or can provide lifters / cradles for any of our floaters so you can mount a panel in a standard floater frame. If you have questions just e-mail or call us to discuss these options.
If you've never used one, the canvas floater frame get's its name from the fact that the canvas floater frame doesn't cover the edge of the painting but instead appears to 'float' in the frame. In actuality the painting is anchored to the back of the frame either by offsets or screws not seen from the front.
Professionals and amateurs alike are using floater frames for a variety or reasons from exposing the entire canvas and the space ( float space ) around the canvas creating the sense that the canvas is suspended or floating in the frame.
