Backing Panels:

Backing panels are made of 3 mm. thick MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) and meet the requirements of :

Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Title VI – 40 CFR Part 770 –
Formaldehyde Standards for Composite Wood Products –
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Backing panels are cut to size and can produced from 4×4″ to 24×36″ in 1/8″ size increments. Dimensional tolerance is nominally +/- 1/16″.
We can produce sizes larger than 24×36″ but this isn’t typically recommended as the frames tend to become wobbly and unstable.

Quadro Clipframes feature an exclusive design where the clips snap into specialized grooves which are machined around the entire periphery of the back side of the backing panels. Any number of clips can be positioned anywhere around the frames allowing for complete flexibility over the layout as well as precise levelling control when hanging the frame. The frames are designed to hang from the cutout/opening in the back of any clip using a nail or screw.

Glazing Panels:

We offer a variety of glazing (front) panels to meet most requirements:

PET – Clear

Our standard plastic panel is a 1 mm. (0.040″) thick optically clear PET panel with a protective peel away film applied on both surfaces.
The film is applied by the raw panel manufacturer and can be opaque or colored. The film protects the relatively soft plastic surface from scratching and scuffing during production and shipping. It is intended to be remove just prior to using the frame.
