Known as the "Super Bar" for its strength, BEST’s Heavy Duty Stretcher Bar is made of kiln-dried, knot-free pine from Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) certified suppliers. The bar has been finger spliced; a method of bonding pieces of lumber together to form a very long, straight bar. Since the spliced joints are actually stronger than the natural wood, we can now get longer, stronger, and straighter bars. First designed for the construction industry, this high tech method yields better bars than ever before, making them the best option for large canvases.

All of BEST's Stretcher Bars are designed so that the canvas is always a full ½" from the stretcher bar to insure that there will be no "ghost" impressions on the canvas. The rounded back edge reduces surface friction and allows for a smoother, tighter draw on the canvas for a more even painting surface. All bars feature a slotted back for easy installation of cross braces.
