Folding stretchers allow large paintings to be transported without being removed from the stretchers. This service is available in all style stretchers. Typically, the stretcher is divided into two sections and connected with aluminum angled hardware.
To fold the painting, remove the aluminum hardware and fold the painting facing in around the sonotube. The bigger the painting, the bigger the sonotube. The sonotube should be wrapped in glassine or a material that will not damage the painting
To secure the painting and sonotube in place, wooden brackets are installed on the top, bottom and two sides.
