The Halo Fine Art Travel & Storage Frame

SKU: Halo


$4.00 to $75.00


The Halo fine art travel/storage frame was developed by artists for artists, galleries, museums, art transport/storage facilities, and private collectors. It is the best addition to or replacement of existing storage and transportation methods and packing collars, pre-isolating for crating, and is ideal for storage of wet paintings. 

The Halo is a product that consists of rigid impact resistant ABS plastic rails, corners, and clips that fasten to the reverse side of a stretched painting. Once attached it provides a protective collar around the painting, which then allows stretched plastic sheeting to be wrapped around the art while being held off the surface of the piece. It can then also be crated for further protection. 

All components are sold singly for greatest flexibility. Rails can easily be cut to size with a saw, or multiple sections used to span one side of a painting.*

* When cutting "rails" always place a block inside of the "rail."  This can be 2-10" lengths of 2"x4" stud material screwed together.


In most cases, you need:
4 corners
4 rails
8 clips
16 washer head screws

Formula for correct rail length:
subtract 18" from each dimension

Example, for a 36” x 48” painting, you need:
4 - corners
4 - rails
8 - 6” clips
16 - #8 5/8” washer head screws

Based on a 1 inch “side standoff”, calculate your correct rail length by subtracting 18” from each dimension. A 36” x 48” painting, would need two rails at 18” and two rails at 30”.

Your Halo is adaptable and can fit a painting up to 4” larger and 2” smaller than the size you bought it for.

For example, a Halo for a 36” x 48” painting can be used for a painting up to 40” x 52” or as small as a 34” x 46”, or any other size in between.

With the purchase of larger clips, it’s even more flexible.

Our goal is to make your Halo investment as flexible and re-usable as possible.

The clip/rail overlap should be a minimum of 1 1/2 inches.
