Frame

A frame is often a structural system that supports other components of a physical construction and/or steel frame that limits the construction's extent.

Frame and FRAME may also refer to:

In building construction

• Framing (construction), a building term known as light frame construction
• Framer, a carpenter who assembles major structural elements in constructing a building
• A-frame, a basic structure designed to bear a load in a lightweight economical manner
• Door frame or window frame, fixed structures to which the hinges of doors or windows are attached
• Frame and panel, a method of woodworking
• Space frame, a method of construction using lightweight or light materials
• Timber framing, a method of building for creating framed structures of heavy timber or willow wood

Other physical objects
