This type of art hanging Display generally involves lots of damage to walls, which need to be patched each time the display is added to. Our Slimline System is perfect in this application, allowing maximum flexibility to add or remove pictures as required.

PICTURE HANGING TIPS:

  • Wherever possible, use two hangers and hooks per artwork. This is particularly important with larger pieces to spread the weight load and give stability.
  • Ensure that the wire or “D” rings are no more than one third of the way down from the top of the painting to prevent the art leaning forward on the wall.
  • Tensioning weights are available to anchor artwork and help prevent the problem of small images leaning too far forward. Another way to prevent these images tilting is to use a small piece of velcro to secure the hanger to the top of the picture frame.
  • Art is often placed at eye level although pieces should also be placed in relation to what’s under and around them. Above mantelpieces art  should be hung with the bottom of the painting about 10-cm above the mantelpiece.
