Masterpieces framed by masterpieces
Magnetic frames protect and present art optimally
In museums, not only a beautiful picture presentation is crucial, but also optimal protection - with HALBE picture frames, you make no compromises. Your work is excellently presented and the highest conservation standards are met. With our unique magnetic frame principle, you save time at large exhibitions by conveniently framing from the front.
FRAMING IN JUST A FEW STEPS
Thanks to the unique HALBE magnetic frame principle, works can be framed from the visible side in seconds - without turning over, clamps or tools. This significantly reduces the time required for large exhibitions.
PERFECT FRAMEWORK CONDITIONS FOR MUSEUMS
PROTECTION AGAINST UNAUTHORISED HANGING, FALLING DOWN OR THEFT
Whether out of curiosity or criminal energy, the image in the museum must be protected from unauthorized access. The HALBE picture locks BS1R, BS4 and BS1 secure works and frames to the wall. Installation is as simple as the framing.
"The Museum of Prints and Drawings of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna has been using Conservo magnetic frame from HALBE since 2016. Based on our experience so far, we are very satisfied with the product, as the workmanship is impeccable and the handling is simple, logical and self-explanatory. Even when minor defects occur, the communication and rectification of defects with the company HALBE is exemplary. All in all, in our experience, a top product from a reliable company."

CREATING WITH EXCELLENT DESIGN
SAFETY DISTANCE BETWEEN FACTORY AND GLASS
The insert frame D5 is the flat alternative to the HALBE Distance magnetic frame . It requires sufficient insertion depth for retrofitting and can be used with the Alu12, Alu14, Alu18, Holz20 and Holz22 profiles in combination with the Conservo, Protect and Classic frame variants. It also offers safe distance in the lending traffic. The corners of insert frame are connected to withstand even the hardest vibrations during transport.
THE RIGHT GLASS FOR PROTECTION AND VISION
Against the effects of ultraviolet light, HALBE uses high-quality glass with UV protection and high break resistance. Anti-reflective museum glasses allow an almost direct view of the image. Without disturbing reflections for the viewer. At HALBE you can also obtain individual panes of museum glass - because we are an official partner of Schott and Tru Vue. We cut, grind and wash the glass for you with our own equipment.

Others did it this way
THE PROTECTION OF THE WORK IS IMPORTANT
In the museum, undesirable factors have an effect on the picture. Visitors' fingers, dust, ultraviolet light, moisture, theft or awkward handling all endanger the object. It must therefore be protected as well as possible from negative influences during the exhibition, during transport or in the depot. So that its cultural and financial value is preserved. A HALBE magnetic frame encloses the picture completely and dust-tight.
EXPERIENCE WITH CULTURAL ASSETS
HALBE has accumulated decades of knowledge through numerous projects in museums. In daily exchange with experts and users, we are constantly improving our products. In this way, we guarantee the latest state of the art. If you have special requirements for frames - we look forward to a dialogue with you.
SAVE TIME QUICKLY AND SAFELY
Framing and hanging or unhanging and unframing should be quick, easy and risk-free for the picture. With HALBE magnetic frames, hanging is safer and mounting is quicker. This is ensured by HALBE 's specially developed picture locks with mounting templates.
BACK PANEL WITHOUT HESITATION
The rear wall of HALBE Conservo and HALBE Protect is made of acid-free and age-resistant corrugated cardboard from KLUG-Conservation. The back wall is loosely inserted in a metal compound, without additional gluing.
OPTIMAL CLIMATE AND CONTROL
Not every room guarantees a consistently gentle climate. Especially in the lending business, fluctuating humidity becomes a stress factor for the paper. The HALBE Protect magnetic frame protects passively - without complex technology - against changing relative humidity and ensures a constant microclimate of the work. For control purposes, the frame can be equipped with a modern data logger. This means that the agreed rental conditions can be checked constantly and from anywhere.
CERTIFICATES, TEST REPORTS AND DATA SHEETS
HALBE magnetic frames and the materials used for them meet the strict requirements of museums. The respective documents are available for download as PDF files. If you have any questions - we will be happy to answer them.
HALBE magnetic frames also stand out for their aesthetic quality. For this, the various models have already won numerous prizes in international design competitions.
INDIVIDUAL PROJECT: MUNCH MUSEUM OSLO
When the construction of the new museum at the harbour in Oslo began, the Munch Museum asked itself the initial question about the new framing of Edvard Munch's artworks: "How would Edvard Munch frame his paintings? Werner Murrer was consulted for the answer. In the course of time the joint project with HALBE-frames developed.
With the picture lock BS 1 an apparently discreet securing of the picture in the frame is created.
In contrast to the normal BS 1, the BS 1 R is invisible as it is integrated on the back of the frame.
UPGRADE YOUR FRAME
High-quality museum glass not only offers a reflection-free and undistorted view of the original, but also increased UV protection. Continue to use your existing frames and now simply replace the glass. In this way, you significantly upgrade your picture presentation and modernise your stock sustainably and economically.
