Fix the Back Into the Frame

Fixing the glazing/art/backing package in place is the final step in assembling a frame. A manual or pneumatic driver fires the point into the rebate of the frame.

A simple manual point driver is great for low volume framing. Flexible points allow the back to be removed to change the artwork; rigid points are stronger and preferable for mirrors and frames over 700mm x 900mm.

Pneumatic drivers increase productivity and reduce fatigue in volume framing workshops. The LION Air Rigid Point Driver has a ‘no pull-back’ feature so you can slide and fire points continuously. The angled nose-plate ensures points are driven in almost flat to the backing board.
