AC Framing Gallery has all our bespoke framing work done in house at our own workshop. We take whatever you have to frame and in partnership with you we come up with framing solutions to inspire. We can frame as simply or as extravagantly as you desire. We use all materials that are available to the trade and this means we can frame to the highest of specification using True Vue Museum Glazing, archival boards and backings to preserve your artwork. We can also frame using medium grade materials where conservation is not necessary, but still with the highest quality look.
We stock over 500 mouldings from the UK's leading suppliers and also stock mouldings from leading suppliers in Spain and Italy offering various finishes from gold and silver to solid oaks, black and white and many more. We can supply swept/ornate frames and mouldings of all materials, Various options in a wood finish as well as industry leading polymer mouldings and metal frames.
We also stock over 100 colours of mount board and can supply to suit any job. We can finish in multiple layers using mount board or hand finish with French mounting or mount slips. Our mounts are cut with a state of the art 'Wizard' CMC mount cutter so no job should be too complicated and with multiple apertures and multiple layers your options are almost endless.
Glazing is the part of the framing industry that is really moving forward right now and to that end we stock all finishes of glass from our standard 2mm Float glass and Non Reflecting glass to our mid-range 'Clarity' Glass that offers an increased UV filter of 70% and has reduced reflection to less than 1% when viewed at 90°. Then to our top of the range True Vue © glass........it has industry leading 99% UV protection (Industry Conservation level is anything over 97%) and it comes in 3 finishes. 'Conservation Clear' is the standard looking glass but with UV protection. The 'Reflection Control’ version has a slightly etched finish to one side so dispersing the reflection and giving the image a matt look. The Rolls Royce of the range is the 'Museum' Glass and it has to be seen to be believed. It has the ultimate anti-reflective appearance with less than 1% when viewed at 90°, but also the ultimate protection. We also stock Perspex & Acrylic in both standard and anti glare which are ideal if either safety or weight of framing is a factor.
We also stock 3mm flat mirror upto 72" x 48" (1880 x 1220mm), but larger sizes are available if required. We also stock various standard sizes in bevelled mirror with a bepsoke service availble for any size bevelled mirror available.
