Mounting

Duggal artisans master the mathematics and aesthetics of custom mounting. With a wide variety of substrates from gallery Plexi and anodized aluminum to display boards such as Gatorboard and Sintra, we offer an artistic and functional solution for any piece or application.

Plexiglas

Perfect for display transparencies. Clear, frosted & milk. Non Glare Plexi only comes in 1/8″. Acrylic sheets have been known as the standard of the industry since first introduced 75 years ago. Its unsurpassed quality, ease of use, and wide range of colors, patterns, thicknesses, and sizes make it one of the most versatile materials.

Floating Gallery Plexi- Prints are stunning gallery/museum pieces used by top artists around the world for premium presentations. Face mounted and beautifully finished with flamed polished edges and backed by archival acid free museum board and a 3/4″ wood brace. Use glossy and smooth photographic paper for best results.

Foamcore/ Gatorboard

Foamcore- This is a thin lightweight mount with an inner layer of foamed plastic. Used for lightweight mounting and temporary displays. Available in ¼” and ½” thickness with a black or white finish.

Gatorboard- More durable than foamcore, this polystyrene foam board is bonded on both sides for uniformity and water resistance. Available in a black or white finish. Standard thickness is ¼” and ½” but thicker boards are available.

Sintra

A lightweight PVC based material, suitable for indoor and outdoor projects. Standard colors (Black & White) are in stock while other custom colors are available upon special request. Sintra has cleaner and better appearing edges than Gatorboard and comes in larger sizes.
