Perspex face mounting gives stunning results that are archival and ready for exhibition.
Durospec, an archival mounting solution also known as Perspex Reverse or Face Mounting, is our signature product having been developed to rival Diasec. Bonded using the same wet-mounting technique, we have an advanced range of backing substrates including 3mm Dibond. We also offer 3mm Black or White Acrylic which is diamond polished to a high shine. This process, pioneered by and unique to Spectrum, won’t be found elsewhere.
Once the Perspex has been bonded to the front of your print the refraction of light through the Perspex gives a high definition effect and brilliant colour, with stunning flawless results that will last for many years. The finished piece is supplied ready to hang on the wall, eliminating the need for a picture frame and is now widely shown in galleries and exhibitions. This is fast becoming our most sought-after service.

Other mounting options
Split batten fixing
An MDF batten is approximately 9mm and will give the impression of your artwork “floating” from the surface of the wall.
One set of battens is fixed to the back of the MDF.
The second set of battens is screwed to the wall.
The image is then hung by slotting the battens on the back of the MDF into the wall battens.
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.
