P.E.R.’s beating heart is of course the carpentry, a light busy large place where wood is the only protagonist. Several times a month, large quantities of wood arrive at our factory directly from the saw-mills of certified European forests.
After being selected and prepared with high technology machinery for the further processing, wood is given to our skilled technicians. With the utmost care which is our characteristic, these artisans transform the wood in order to create our items, dedicated to those who love art and beautiful things.
Our company uses only red fir wood, dried for a long time at the right degree of humidity, to grant an optimal stability to the finished product.
The carpentry is the “birthplace” of many of our items: stretcher strips, bars, stretchers in kit and every stretcher on which our canvases are set.
Stretcher strips and stretcher bars cut to measure with joint are sold separately, while, on request, they could also be provided in long bars. Wedges, or stretcher keys, are in hard wood and sold separately. It is also possible to supply outsize stretchers in kits containing all the parts of the stretcher that the artist can easily assemble in a few minutes.
It is possible to choose a wide range of sections in order to satisfy every kind of request. Stretcher strips and crossbars cut to measure or in long bars (on request) are available in different sections from 43x18mm to 100x43mm. For further info, check out our product’s page or contact us.
