Two becomes one: The optimal museum picture frame with distance. Beauty is fleeting - thousands of pictures and paintings prove the opposite. With the right framing and care they often outlast centuries. In recent years, the focus of museums and art collectors has shifted significantly towards the prevention of art objects. HALBE Framing has therefore further developed the Conservo magnetic frame proven in European museums. Under the motto "play it safe with a distance", the Conservo-Distance magnetic frame was developed, which combines the best of several frame variants. It offers optimal conservation conditions for flat works on paper that are particularly worthy of protection and slightly three-dimensional objects that are to be mounted plano or free-floating. Simple framing from the top and magnetic spacer bars, in addition to a well thought-out design, are the distinguishing features of the new CONSERVO-DISTANCE frame.
