Fix the Back Into the Frame

Products featured


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 noseplate ensures points are driven in almost flat to the backing board.

Choose the right point:

Flexipoints are can be bent up to allow the frame back to be removed - ideal for photo frames but fine for many other applications.

Rigid Points provide a permanent fixing and are a good choice for a frame designed to last for a long time.

Multipoints from Fletcher have a screw hole and are bendable, so can be used in a variety of ways to stack frames and fix shadow boxes into frames.
