We recommend cross braces for any frame over one metre in length to add extra stability. The A&B braces are recommended for square frames with both sides over a metre long, and the single C brace is most effective for rectangular frames where one side is less than a metre long.
All cross braces are manufactured from our 18x44mm Probar. The bars will be slotted for the cross brace to fit. The Exhibition profile is the only bar with a recess which the cross brace can sit on without the need for the bar to be slotted.

Cross Brace - A
With a 44mm centre cut out and end lips to the top of the bar the A brace fits the recess or designated slot in the frame. This is fitted prior to the B brace being fitted.
The A and B cross braces are recommended for frames over 1 metre, especially with narrow profiles.
Cross Brace - B
The 44mm centre cut out is at the bottom of the bar to fit neatly over the A cross brace. The end lips remain at the top of the bar to fit the recess or slot in the frame.
Cross Brace - C
The C brace is a single support brace without a centre cut out.
The C brace is recommended to fit along the short side of rectangular frames to ensure the canvas remains tight.
