How to frame a metal panel

  • Step one

    You'll need three components; an aluminium frame mitred to size on our Chop Service, Aluminium Frame Hardware, and a metal panel.

  • Step two

    Slot in and tighten the screwed and flat plates into the corners to join three sides of the frame. Leave the top side open for now.

  • Step three

    Slide in the printed metal panel.

  • Step four

    Slot in the remaining corner plates to join the fourth side of the frame.

  • Step five

    Slide the bow springs under the frame rebate on all four sides. Typically use 8 on smaller frames and 10 or more on larger frames.

  • Step six

    Slot the CWH3 Sawtooth Hangers in approximately 1/3 from the top of the frame and screw to tighten.

  • Step seven

    Finish by sticking bumpers to the bottom corners of the frame. This helps to hang the frame straight and avoid scratching the wall.

  • Step eight

    Hang directly onto picture hooks. CWH3 Hangers are not designed for use with picture cord or wire.
