ALUMINIUM BECOMES WOOD
Old profile frames from HALBE can be easily replaced. For example, you would like to change from your existing aluminium frames to wood? In this case you can simply order new profile frames from us.
TURN OLD INTO NEW
Upgrade your existing picture frames. Change only the glass, the profile frame or the back wall. Simply continue to use the other components of the frame. This is how you modernise your stock sustainably and economically.
FROM CLASSIC TO CONSERVO
For even higher conservation requirements, you can also change the basic element from CLASSIC to CONSERVO. In contrast to CLASSIC, the CONSERVO magnetic frame features a special basic element with loosely inserted KLUG corrugated cardboard instead of hard foam board, height-adjustable wall spacers and suspension holes with levelling aid.
Continue to use your existing frames and simply replace the glass, profile frame or basic element. This way, you significantly upgrade your picture presentation and modernise your stock sustainably and economically.
UPGRADE YOUR FRAME
CLEAR VIEW OF THE IMAGE
Disturbing reflections in the glass prevent a clear view of the picture and reduce the contrast and contour sharpness of the image. High-quality museum glass offers a reflection-free and undistorted view of the original and increased UV protection. Simply replace your existing glass with anti-reflective museum glass from SCHOTT and Tru Vue!
The 3 millimetre thick museum glass offers excellent anti-reflective properties, undistorted colour reproduction and very good contour sharpness and contrast.
This glass combines the outstanding properties of Mirogard® with increased UV protection of 82 percent. It is therefore ideal for conservational framing.
This shatterproof and 4.4 millimetre thick laminated safety glass consists of two panes with an internal elastic and tear-resistant film. This prevents the glass from shattering into small pieces in the event of breakage and protects the work. The high UV protection of approx. 99 percent ensures long-lasting colour fidelity of works of art.
OPTIUM MUSEUM ACRYLIC®
This museum glass from Tru Vue is an acrylic glass and combines many positive properties. It is non-reflective, anti-static, shatterproof, scratch-resistant and provides over 99 percent protection against UV light. It is therefore the ideal solution for aesthetically demanding works of art that need to be conserved. Also suitable for very large formats.

FRAMED 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, clamps or tools. This significantly reduces the time required for large exhibitions.
Magnetrahmen für Museen
HALBE CONSERVO magnetic frame
Permanently preserves values. Meets the highest conservation requirements of restorers.

HALBE DISTANCE magnetic frame

Protection against unauthorized removal or theft
Whether out of curiosity or criminal energy - pictures in the museum must be protected from unauthorized access. The HALBE picture locks BS1R, BS4 and BS1 secure works and frames to the wall. The installation is as simple as the framing.
BACK PANEL WITHOUT CONCERNS
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 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.
