Aluminum Stretcher Bars

We are pleased to offer premium aluminum stretcher bars to our audience across Canada and the United States. These architectural-grade aluminum stretchers have been used widely throughout Europe and North America by world-renowned artists and hobbyists alike for more than 20 years. Now, they're available online exclusively with UCSart.com.

These stretcher frames are ideal for very large canvases (up to 30 ft and more!), as well as situations where a thinner canvas is desired in a large size, and for artwork that will be hung in challenging environments, including fluctuating temperature and humidity. A mechanical keying system allows full adjustment of canvas tightness on the bars and braces.

Available in two thicknesses, these stretcher bars can be purchased online in sizes ranging from 24-96” (~61-244 cm) - please contact us at 1-800-561-4944 or submit a quote request to order frames outside of this range.
