Profile 93: Contemporary, Minimal, Metal Frames

Introducing the newest choices in the American Frame metal frame gallery:  Profile 93 from Nielsen. These aluminum frames feature clean edges and a slender face, for a contemporary, minimalist aesthetic, a look that’s a bit more difficult to achieve with wood. Profile 93 is particularly appealing for the presentation of photography and modern art. These frames can also be used inside wood moulding to provide enhanced structural support, and as a "pinstripe" for larger images. 
Why aluminum?
Generally, aluminum frames provide strength and superior corner joins. It’s an inert metal (it won't change compositionally over time, like wood does) and it’s flaw-free. Nielsen’s Profile 93 aluminum frames have no grain variations, knots, or surface variability.
Nielsen frames: Superior metal frames
The manufacturing of Nielsen metal picture frames includes an anodization process that makes them extremely durable and mar-resistant. And Nielsen’s unique electrostatic paint system applies multiple coats to each frame so that coverage is exceptional and resistance to both scratches and scuffs is great.  
As with all American Frame options, selections from the Nielsen Profile 93 line can be cut to within 1/16" thanks to our PrecisionCuttechnology. They’ll arrive at your door with the hardware you need to assemble easily and quickly. All you need is a screwdriver.
