2mm Aluminium mounting frame

An ultra smooth surface onto which we can mount a wide range of papers, aluminium is archival and gives sleek results and is a very popular choice for exhibition mounting.

For sleek simplicity, aluminium mounting offers an ultra smooth surface onto which we can mount a wide range of papers including high gloss and super gloss prints. The aluminium is first precision cut by guillotine for perfect straight edge before the print is applied. At 2mm thick Aluminium is weightier than Dibond (3mm), but has a more attractive silver edge. Our most popular archival exhibition mounting option.

Other mounting options

Split batten fixing

An MDF batten is approximately 9mm will give the impression of your artwork “floating” from the surface of the wall.

One set of battens are fixed to the back of the MDF.

The second set of battens are screwed to the wall.

The image is then hung by slotting the battens on the back of the MDF into the wall battens.

Subframe fixing

Subframes are advised for hanging larger mounted prints and Perspex mounts.

A subframe is an aluminium profile attached to the reverse of the mounted material.

This is then hung onto a batten fixed to the wall.

A subframe moulding will give the impression of your artwork “floating” from the wall. The moulding is approximately 20mm wide.
