"H" Frame Easel With Centre Slide

Easels Galore Index H frames Standard H Frames Counterweight

Centre Slide easels allow the painting to be easily lifted on the easel. The entire centre section of shaft mounts and any work attached slides up and down. It is then locked at the desired height and the artist can always have their work at eye level. There is a large amount of travel and the bottom mount goes to the bottom frame of the easel. The sliding section can be locked top and bottom. The artist has to lift the weight of the sliding mechanism which is 2 to 5 kilos and the canvas, when using the slide. If this is a problem a Counterweighted easel should be chosen, to eliminate lifting weight.

The Centre Slide easel has all the features of a Standard H frame. They tilt forward 5 degrees and back 12 degrees. Solid construction that will not give trouble during a long, hard life. The fronts do not protrude so that you will not trip over them. High sides provide full support where it counts. Deep trays available for all easels. Locking castors on the front and standard castors on the rear. The top mount slides all the way down the centre shaft to meet the bottom mount. You can paint a post card. The bottom mount is fixed to the centre shaft, and has 3 locations. It enables you to use the easel in rooms with relatively low ceilings. Folds flat for transport and storage. Wedge Mounts are standard

It is available in two standard sizes, but this can be altered to suit a special order. Please note that the minimum ceiling height for a HS1600 is 2.7 metres or 9 foot and a HS2000 is 3 metres or 10 foot. If you so not have this height in the studio you will miss out on the advantages of raising and lowering the canvas.
