Frameless Framing Systems
MOORE GALLERY CLIPS
The clips are made of steel wire, bent at the ends to hook around the sandwich of glass, mat and backing, with two at each corner of the art to be framed. All four wire corner sets are held together with a waxed, nylon braided cord. Will allow you to frame items up to 26 x 26" in size. Will accommodate glass or plexiglass, mats, art and backing up to 3/8" thick.
NOTE: WHEN USING GLASS, WE RECOMMEND SANDING THE EDGES TO TAKE OFF SOME OF THE SHARPNESS. RAW GLASS EDGES CAN BE DANGEROUS IF LEFT UNSANDED.
The diagram at right shows how the cord laces through the 4 wire corner supports and ties off, forming a harness from which you hang your picture.

EUBANK ACRYLIC UNI-FRAMES
One of the original frameless options that came on the market years ago, the Eubank family of Uni-Frames gives you several options: Uni-Frame 20 and Uni-Frame 40.
The Uni-Frame 20 and 40 both come with clear acrylic clips instead of metal. The Uni-Frame 20 is best used on art that is sized from 10 x 10" up to 20 x 20". The Uni-Frame 40 is rated by the manufacturer for art 16" x 16" up to 40 x 40. However, because of the physics involved in supporting a large piece of glass, we recommend using plexiglass only with the Uni-Frame 40. Also, past experience with the Uni-Frame 40 has shown us that it really works best up to 36 x 36" and it is to be considered as "temporary" framing for short-term usage and exhibitions.
