Opus Metal Exhibition Frames - Plexi

Opus PLUS Member Sale

SAVE 20% OFF

January 3–30, 2019

Sold in minimum quantities of 2 of the same size frame.

Opus’ owner David van Berckel developed the Opus Metal Exhibition Frame in the mid-‘70s, taking inspiration from the frames he saw when visiting the galleries and museums of Europe. Drawing on his engineering degree, he designed a frame that is highly functional for exhibition use, allowing users to easily change out artwork.

This frame has become renowned for its simplicity, quality of construction, and ease of use. For more than 40 years, it has stood the test of time, becoming a staple item for professional artists, photographers, museums, art galleries, and schools alike.

One of our most popular frame styles is now available with plexi acrylic glazing. The protective glazing is made with lightweight, crystal clear cast glazing which is superior in its optical clarity, thermal resistance, and strength in comparison to standard extruded acrylic glazing which is often found in inexpensive readymade frames.

This frame is ideal for homes, exhibitions, or schools where the added safety and ease of display, transport and shipping offered by a shatterproof glazing are of importance.

The Opus Metal Exhibition Frame (or "OMEX" to those who know it well) has also become widely used in home decor as its universal quality showcases artwork in a classic style that is beyond trend.

Trevor from Opus Granville Island sets the framework for the features and assembly of our ever-popular Opus Metal Exhibition Frame (with glass) in this quick and simple video.
