Double Mat Boards - Acid-Free & Australian Made

Present | Protect | Preserve


      When it comes to framing artwork, the use of double-layered mat boards adds a whole new dimension to the presentation. Double mats (also sometimes referred to as an "Accent Mat" or a "Step Mat") not only provide a professional and elegant finish but also offer extra depth and visual interest, enhancing the overall appeal of the framed piece. By incorporating two layers, you can create a subtle shadow effect that draws the viewer's eye towards the artwork.

      A double mat board is when two separate layers of mat board are used together. Both pieces are cut in a way so that the window openings line up to expose the inside edge of the lower matboard layer. The reveal of the inside edge of the bottom matboard layer is usually around +/- 5mm (0.5cm).

      Benefits of using double layered mat boards

      One of the key advantages of using double-layered mats is their versatility in complementing various styles and types of artworks. Whether you are framing a photo portrait of a loved one, or a decorator art print, these mats can be customised to suit sizes and styles, adding a unique touch to each piece. The layered effect creates a sense of depth that makes the artwork seemingly come alive within its frame, captivating viewers with its striking presentation.

      Double step mat boards can also offer a better level of protection than single layered mats. By using two layers, the added thickness helps prevent the photo or artwork from coming into direct contact with the glass, reducing the risk of damage from moisture or condensation.

      Profile double layered mat boards are made with professional, high-quality materials that are acid-free, ensuring the preservation of the framed piece over time. This is particularly important when framing valuable or sentimental artworks, as acidic materials can cause yellowing, fading, or other forms of deterioration.

      Opting for Australian-made double layered window mats from Profile not only supports local craftsmanship, but also guarantees superior quality and attention to detail in each frame.
