Art Hanging System & Packages

What's included in your packages?

We wanted to make it as simple as possible for our clients, so everything you need to hang up your art is included in our packages. This includes the art track, hooks, hangers and all necessary connectors and hardware.

We offer our packages in 4m, 10m, and 20m sizes so that you can choose the package that suits the size of your art collection and the walls you want to display it on.

If you have additional artwork to hang up, you can always buy more hooks and hangers separately.

The only item not included in our packages are the end caps since we recommend installing the art track from wall to wall. In most cases, end caps are not necessary if the track is installed in this way. However, if you plan to install the track on a wall where the end of the track will be exposed, you will need an end cap. You can purchase end caps separately if needed.

What's the difference between your Deluxe and Standard Packages?

Our Deluxe and Standard packages differ in the type of hooks and hangers included.

The Deluxe Package features Stainless Steel Hangers and Precision Hooks, which can support a maximum weight of 10kgs each.

Our Standard Package come with Nylon Hangers and Spring Hooks that can handle up to 4kgs each.

The choice between the two usually depends on your preferred aesthetic. The Stainless Steel hangers provide a more sophisticated and professional look while the Nylon hangers blend well with the wall.

However, for heavier pieces, we recommend using the Stainless Steel hangers and Precision Hooks due to their higher weight capacity.

Where can I use the art hanging system?

Our Art Hanging System can be used in a variety of settings, including homes, offices, art galleries, schools and more.

As long as you have a wall to install the track on, you can use our system to display your art collection no matter how much artwork you have. Our hanging system is designed to be versatile and easy to install, making it perfect for anyone looking to elevate their art display.

We have installed our Art Hanging System in all the above locations and our clients have been delighted with how great the system is for displaying their collection.

Can I add more hooks and hangers to the package?

Yes, you can always add more hooks and hangers to your package. Our packages already include a set number of hooks and hangers, but you can always purchase additional ones if needed.

Can a package be customized to fit my specific needs?

Yes, we can customize your package to fit your specific needs.

If you have a particular requirement, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help you create a package that meets your needs.

Our team will work with you to ensure that you get the best solution for your specific situation.

Hanging Rails

How many hanging rails do I need?

For an accurate measurement, it's best to measure your walls in meters and include an extra 10% to 15% to account for any potential waste. Cutting the rails to size can be easily done with a hacksaw. It's also important to take into consideration the number of joints on the wall. On a 3900mm wall, for instance, it's advisable to use two 2m lengths to limit the number of joints. Minimizing the number of joins not only makes the installation cleaner, but also gives a more polished look. Avoid using multiple small pieces to join together, as this can appear messy.

Can I cut the rail to size?

Yes, you can cut the rail to size using a hacksaw. It is recommended to place the cut edge in a corner or use an end cap to cover the cut end.

How do I select items that work together?

To select items that work together, you need to consider the weight capacity of each item and the weight of the items you want to hang. Make sure that the total weight of the items you want to hang does not exceed the weight capacity of the hangers and hooks you are using. Additionally, consider the size of the items you want to hang, and make sure that the hangers and hooks you select can accommodate them. For larger items, you may need to use multiple hangers and hooks to ensure that they are securely hung. You can also ask us for recommendations on the best hangers and hooks for your specific needs and artwork.

Should the hanging rails be continued over doors and windows?

In most cases, it is recommended to continue the hanging rails over doors and windows for a neater appearance.

Can I paint the hanging rail?

The rail is paintable, but it's important to prepare the surface properly to ensure the paint adheres well. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Clean the rail thoroughly to remove any dust and grease.
  2. Gently sand the rail with fine sandpaper to create a rough surface for the paint to adhere to.
  3. Ensure the rail is completely clean, dust-free, and grease-proof before painting.
  4. Use acrylic paint to give the rail a fresh and updated look.

Is it possible to install the hanging rail in a corner, both inside and outside corners?

Yes, it's possible to install the hanging rail around corners using the matching corner connectors, which are available for purchase in our online store. These connectors can be used for both inner and outer corners.

Can the rail be installed diagonally or on an angle?

No, the rail cannot be installed diagonally or on a big angle.

My cornice/ceiling is slightly crooked what should I do?

If you have a slightly crooked cornice or ceiling, don't worry, it's a common issue. The difference can range from a few millimeters to a few centimeters. In this case, aligning the rail with the cornice/ceiling instead of trying to install it perfectly straight can create a more visually appealing look. To straighten your hanging items, you may need to adjust the length of the hangers where the hooks attach. If you're unsure, don't hesitate to ask us. Please note that we do not recommend installing the rail at a drastic angle.

Is it possible to remove the hanging rail from the wall?

Yes, it can be done. The best method for removing the rail from the fastening clips is to use a screwdriver with a cloth wrapped around it to avoid damaging the rail. Begin by placing the screwdriver at the bottom of the rail and gently prying it away from the wall. Once you've made some progress, you can loosen the rail by hand.

However, it's not recommended to remove or move the rail as there is a risk of accidental damage. Also, the effort required to repair and repaint the wall may not be worth the time. If you're moving, it's suggested to leave the rail in place and take the hooks and hangers with you. If you want to hang your artwork elsewhere in your home, it's advisable to purchase additional rails instead of removing the existing one.

Is the rail only suitable for paintings or can I also hang a whiteboard, clock or mirror?

Yes, our hanging rail system is versatile and can be used to hang more than just paintings. You can hang a variety of items, such as whiteboards, clocks, mirrors, and other decorative pieces, as long as you keep the maximum weight limit in mind. Simply use the appropriate hooks to secure your items and you're good to go!

Can additional hanging rails be added to extend the length along the wall?

Yes, additional hanging rails can be added to extend the length along a wall. The additional hanging rails can be easily connected together using connectors.

For example, if you have a 5m wall then you will use 3x 2m hanging rails and the last hanging rail will be cut at 1m. You will also use 2x connectors to connect all 3 hanging rails.

Do you include screws to attach the hanging rail to the wall?

Every 2 metres of track purchased comes with a screw and plug set. It includes:

6x Wall Plugs for brick walls
6x Screws
6x Buttons

Hooks & Hangers

Do the hangers come in different lengths?

Yes our art hangers come in 2 different sizes: 1.8 meters and 2.4 meters.

Which hooks and hangers do i need?

The type of hooks and hangers you need will depend on the item you want to hang up on your wall. Every hook and hanger on our website contains information on what it is compatible within the product description. It is recommended to choose hooks and hangers that can hold the weight of your item and meet your hanging requirements. If you are unsure, please don't hesitate to ask us.

Please see the Weight Capacity section in the FAQs for the Compatible Hooks and Hangers with their Maximum Weight Capacities.

Can I hang multiple pieces on one hanger?

Yes, you can hang multiple pieces on one hanger, but it's important to keep in mind the maximum load capacity of the hanger and divide the weight evenly between the hooks. Make sure not to exceed the maximum recommended weight limit to avoid damaging the hanger or your artwork.

Can I cut the nylon/steel hangers?

The nylon hanger can be cut, but be cautious when doing so. Using a blunt pair of scissors or knife can create a rough edge that makes it difficult to attach the hook. To avoid this, we recommend rolling up the excess hanger and hiding it behind the artwork.

On the other hand, the steel hanger cannot be cut, as it will fray.

Can the hooks and hangers be repositioned?

Yes, the hooks and hangers can be repositioned on the rail by simply sliding them to a different location on the rail. The hooks can be repositioned on their hanger by moving them up or down. As always, it is important to make sure that the maximum load capacity of the rail and hooks/hangers is not exceeded.

What type of hooks or hangers should be used for heavy or delicate items?

It is recommended to use the Precision Hooks or Super Security Precision Hooks with the Stainless Steel Hangers for heavy or delicate items. These hooks and hanger combination have a greater load capacity.

Furthermore, if you choose the Super Security Precision Hooks, they have a locking mechanisms, which is an extra security feature.

Always check the maximum load capacity of the hook or hanger before hanging any item and ensure it is appropriate for the weight of the item you want to hang.

Weight Capacity

What is the weight capacity of the 2m Clip In Art Track?

The weight capacity of the 2m Clip In Art Track can support up to 20kg per meter depending on the wall (brick or gyprock). Then the type of hooks and hangers need to be considered.

What are the hooks and hangers weight capacity?

Compatible Hooks and Hangers with their Maximum Weight Capacities*:

Clip-in Nylon Hanger + Spring Hook = 4kgs
Clip-in Nylon Hanger + Zipper Hook = 8kgs
Clip-in Stainless Steel Hangers + Precision Hook = 10kgs
Clip-in Stainless Steel Hangers + Zipper Hook = 10kgs
Clip-in Stainless Steel Hangers + Super Security Precision Hook = 10kgs

*The maximum weight capacity always depends on the system as a whole (Wall + Track + Hangers + Hooks). These weight capacities assume the system is installed correctly into a brick wall.

Heavy weight capacity example

John has a beautiful piece of artwork that he wants to display in his home. He has a brick wall that measures 2 meters in length and he wants to mount the piece on it. His artwork weighs 14 kilograms and is approximately A0 in size (84.1cm x 118.9cm).

Fortunately, John's artwork is within the weight capacity of the 2m Clip In Art Track, which can support up to 20kg per meter. He can now proceed to install the art track on his wall.

When it comes to choosing the right hooks and hangers, John should keep in mind that the piece of artwork is larger than A4 (21.0cm x 29.7cm) in size. Hence, it is recommended to use two hooks and two hangers, one on each side, for added stability.

Unfortunately, the combination of Spring Hooks + Clip-in Nylon Hangers won't work as it has a weight capacity of only 4 kilograms. John should opt for either 2 Precision Hooks + 2 Clip-in Stainless Steel Hangers or 2 Super Security Precision Hooks + 2 Clip-in Stainless Steel Hangers. Both of these options offer a combined weight capacity of 20 kilograms, which will work perfectly for John's 14 kilograms piece of art.

Light weight capacity example

Sally and Ben, the proud parents of three aspiring artists, are faced with the task of displaying their children's beloved masterpieces. With a collection of artwork ranging in size from A4 to A3 and weighing no more than 2 kgs each, even with frames, they were feeling overwhelmed by the volume of work they had to hang.

Fortunately, they discovered the Hanging Man system, which eliminates the need for numerous holes in the wall and provides them with the flexibility to rearrange and hang new artwork over time. They have chosen to display all 30 pieces along their 6 meter long hallway entrance, which features a cornice.

To accommodate the total weight of 60 kgs of artwork, evenly distributed along the 6-meter-long wall, the Clip In Art Track is the perfect solution, providing a capacity of 20 kgs per linear meter.

For an economical option, Sally and Ben can use Nylon Hangers equipped with Spring Hooks, each capable of supporting 4 kgs of weight when used together. This means they can hang 8 kgs of artwork by using one hook and hanger on each side.

Alternatively, Sally and Ben can stack multiple pieces of artwork on one hanger, with a maximum of 3 pieces per hanger. To do this, they will need two Nylon Hangers and six Smart Springs, which will allow them to hang 6 kgs of artwork in total, equating to 3 kgs on each side. The final arrangement and placement of the pieces are left to Sally and Ben's creativity, as long as they do not exceed 20 kgs per linear meter.
