    What is normal glass?
    Normal glass
    Our standard glass is ideal for framings where UV rays, heightened safety concerns or exceptional picture quality are not the key issues. Standard glass has a slight green tint due to its iron oxide content. Colour reproduction is therefore not completely faithful.
    What is Plexiglass?
    PLEXIGLAS® is a 3 millimetre thick acrylic glass and is especially light, sturdy and can protect sensitive exhibits from over 99% of ultraviolet rays. Plexiglas® is completely clear and is therefore extremely faithful in terms of colour reproduction. Artworks can realise their full visual potential.
    White glass
    What is White Glass?
    White glass
    White glass is a low-iron float glass with very high light transmission and color-neutral transparency. In contrast to standard float glass (normal glass), it has no green tint. White glass is the first choice when it comes to a sensitive feel for color reproduction.

Insertion depth adviser

Please select the recommended insertion depth in the configurator.

The recommended insertion depth covers a range of +/- 1mm. Slight inaccuracies and varying image thickness are thus compensated. The required insertion depth is based on your selected picture thickness and the configured passepartout. For your information: Folding passepartouts are 0.75 mm thicker than normal passepartouts. Pictures up to a maximum thickness of 1.5 mm can be inserted into folding passepartouts.

Your picture frame configuration


Profile: Alu 8

The rectangular Alu 8 profile is a HALBE classic: slim and edgy, ideal for straight forward timeless picture framing. For a presentation in aluminum frames, the Alu 8 has been a top seller since the invention of the HALBE magnetic frame. Made from the CO2-reduced recycled aluminum NEWTRAL® from Erbslöh Aluminium..

Color: Chrome

The polished aluminum profile is a HALBE classic. The shiny surface of the profile creates a contrast to the silver-matte surface.

Glass: Normal glass glossy

This glass type is a popular choice if your budget is limited and there are no special requirements in terms of colour reproduction, anti-reflection, UV or shatter protection. Normal glass is slightly green and the most basic of picture glass types.

Size: 400 x 400 mm

Squares play an important role at HALBE and it's very popular with designers. There are square norm formats of up to 100 x 100 cm in 10-cm increments.


Framing and Deployment

The HALBE Classic was developed as the first frame to open and close magnetically. Like this, flat works of paper can be inserted from the front, without shifting or tools. Drawings, photographs, prints or documents can be exchanged fast and precisely. The even contact pressure of the glass directly on the picture or passe-partout ensures an ideal flatness of the art. Any type of glass can be used. For optimum colour rendition use Optiwhite float glass matt or glossy. Mirogard Plus offers additional UV protection and optical-interference anti-reflection.

Look and Measures

The elegant design is available as aluminum or solid wood in a range of colours, from white to natural walnut. For perfect harmony with your walls and furniture.

On request, you can also have your frame produced in a colour from the RAL colour spectrum. We offer 40 standard formats or custom made frames from 130 x 130 mm to 1200 x 1400 mm. Larger order formats up to 2000 x 3000 mm on request.

Hanging and Safety

For fast and secure hanging in landscape or portrait format, there are one or three hanging holes at the back on all four sides of the frame, depending on the size. Like this, it has one or two points to attach it to the wall or on ropes. Four felt pads in the corners create a gap to protect the wall and for better air circulation. On request, the dustproof frame can be combined with different HALBE picture safety devices –  to attach the frame to the wall and prevent any unauthorized opening.

HALBE Magnetic Frame Principle - quickly explained in the video:



  • Pictures can be framed and exchanged on the display side without tools
  • The rigid foam board of the base element is PAT tested and equipped with optimal flatness features
  • On request, the standard insertion depth can be changed to up to 23 mm without additional charge
  • Depending on the profile up to 2 x 3 metres
  • Perfect mitre due to stably embossed corner angles
  • Dustproof and even all-round contact pressure on the glass with the HALBE magnetic frame system 
  • Optional additional equipment such as picture safety devices
  • Integrated hanging holes for hanging at one or two points
  • Glass types and UV protection as required
  • Delivery with reclosable carton box for further transport

Decoration and pictures/passepartouts framed as an example are not included in the delivery of the picture frame.

Top Verarbeitung und…

Top Verarbeitung und einfache Handhabung.

Ich habe schon diverse Alurahmen von anderen (nicht allen) Herstellern gekauft, aber in Bezug auf Verarbeitung und Habung sind keine dabei, die mit Halbe Rahmen mithalten können.

Die Handhabung der Halbrahmen ist sehr gut. Bei anderen Rahmen, die sich in meinem Besitzt befinden muss man diverse Federklamern, Kunststoffklammern entfernen, um ein Bild auszutauschen. Ich habe sogar Rahmen, wo man einen Schraubendreher benötigt um ein Bild zu tauschen; da muss man den Rahmen halb auseinanderbauen.

Standard bei alle bisher gekauften Rahmen ist eine Rückwand aus Hartfaser mit einfachen, billig wirkenden Aufhängevorrichtungen oder gar keinen Aufhängevorrichtungen.

Der Halbe Rahmen verfügt über einen rundum laufenden L-Profilrahmen aus Metall mit integrierten Aufhängevorrichtungen. Hier habe ich keine Bedenken, dass da jemals was ausreisst.

Der Innenbereich des L-Rahmens ist durch eine sehr dicke Platte aus beidseitig kaschiertem Hartschaumstoff (vermute ich jetzt mal) ausgefüllt, auf dem nachher das Bild und Passepartout zu liegen kommen.

Auf diesem L-Rahmen sind Filze angebracht, die verhindern, dass der Rahmen an der Wand scheuert.

Das einzige was ich an meinen Halbe Alurahmen zu bemängeln habe: es gibt sie nicht im Farbton Bronze. Ansonsten hochzufrieden.


A critical customer says

Bruce 7 Oct 2021

Frames look very good, but the site doesn't make it easy to order.

The frames look very impressive, but getting a sample of anything (even just the passepartout sample) sent to Italy will cost 24.90 in shipping! That's not really encouraging new customers....
And I would second the critical comment on the configurator; it is set up as if we start from the frame size and then work backward to the art size we would put inside. So in order to use it I need to first take my image size, then calculate the passepartout size I would like (no automatic suggestion), and then calculate the appropriate frame size - and then do it all over again for a different size image....
