Galleries and museums are a great source of inspiration, however, we often don’t think about what goes on behind the scenes. How did their hanging system become so popular? There are many reasons that picture hanging systems have set the standard for museums and galleries worldwide. Here are the top reasons to use them in your home and office.
It is damage free
Galleries often swap pieces out or change themes. Would you take a nail and hammer to the wall holding a Van Gogh? It’s unthinkable! Picture hanging rails and rods allow art to be changed without damaging walls. One installation is all that is needed. To change works of art, simply remove the pieces from the hooks. There’s no downtime or remodelling necessary.
Adaptable based on size and weight
As you know, art comes in all shapes and sizes. The Louvre, the Smithsonian, and the Acropolis have different needs. Museums must be able to accommodate a wide range of height and weight requirements. Screws are unreliable and can send priceless pieces crashing to the ground. Artiteq rail hanging systems are affixed to the wall or ceiling with the ability to easily suspend a wide range of pieces on wires or rods.
It gives you an ability to hang countless pictures
One of the other top reasons to use a picture hanging system is that it offers the ability to hang a multitude of pictures in a limited space. Acrylic pocket displays are great for smaller pieces. Salon-style hanging has been a trend since Victorian times, and it shows no signs of becoming worn. Ceiling and wall-mounted systems are great for any picture size, the small family pictures or larger, heavier works of art.
