MuseuM Services Corporation fabricates a wide variety of aluminum solid support panels.  Solid Support Panels are an excellent support for works of art that need a flat surface that is dimensionally stable, yet lightweight.  Constructed of a hexagonal honeycomb aluminum set inside of two thin aluminum skins, a fabricated panel can be custom designed to many different shapes or sizes.

APPLICATION

MSC Solid Support Panels offer excellent rigidity, strength and are lightweight.  Solid supports can be used for many different conservation functions. The thermal coefficient of expansion and contraction for aluminum honeycomb panels is similar to most organic materials, making them useful in many applications.  Solid Support Panels are used often in the relining of paintings where a stretcher is not appropriate.  They are also used in the mounting of paper, textiles, photos, mosaics and tiles.  For artists, solid support panels can be an excellent substrate for painting on, whether with a paper board surface or canvas applied, or painting straight onto the aluminum surface.

When ordering a custom Solid Support Panel, each panel includes:

  • A custom panel built to exacting size, down to 1/16 of an inch (1 millimeter)
  • A choice of closeout around the perimeter of the panel; basswood, aluminum, or no closeout
  • A choice of panel thickness, either 1/2-inch (1.2 cm), 9/16-inch (1.4 cm), or one inch (2.5 cm)

    Pricing on panels is per square foot, calculated to the inch.  Minimum price is one square foot for any size below a square foot.  Call for a quotation including packaging and transport costs.

    Because MSC Solid Support Panels are custom built, some lead time is required.  Some oversize panels may take up to four weeks or more for fabrication.

    Basswood Closeout

    Aluminum Closeout

    No Closeout

    FEATURES

    Because MSC Solid Support Panels are custom built to order, a tremendous variety of shapes, sizes and profiles are possible.  Shapes can vary from regular square or rectangular panels to irregular shapes such as octagons, ovals, panels with curved tops or oversized shapes.  Panels with cutouts in the middle are possible, as are panels with curved or wavy profiles.

    Curved Panels

     

    Contact Museum Services Corporation to discuss the solid support panel solutions possible for any project.

    DETAILS

    Standard Solid Support Panel skins are .032-inch (.08 cm) thick.  .025-inch (.06 cm) skins are available on request.

    Panel thickness will depend on the project’s needs.  A 1/2-inch thick panel is considered standard for up to 4 feet (1.2 meter) length and width.  For larger, oversize projects, 9/16-inch or one inch may be more appropriate.  Oversize panels may have seams on the surface over internal support splices.  These seams are sanded smooth and do not disrupt the panel surface.

    Choose a closeout for the panel that best fits the needs of the project.  Basswood is the standard closeout and can be stapled into for attaching a painting during relining.  Aluminum frame closeouts are for panels that need to look like solid aluminum but maintain some of the lightness of a honeycomb panel.  Aluminum frame closeouts add an upcharge; call for a quote.  Having no closeout at all is also an available option.

    When building a honeycomb panel, the mounting or hanging of the panel should be considered.  Several hanging options are available, depending on a project’s needs.

    Looking for lower cost, thinner alternatives for a solid support?  MuseuM Services Corporation also offers custom cut DiBond support panels.
