We recently supplied an Art Hanging System to Birmingham's Museum of the Jewellery Quarter for their IGers Birmingham: Best of Birmingham exhibition - helping them create a flexible exhibition space, saving time & money for all their future projects. You can view information on the Museum and the exhibition here.

An Art Hanging System, quite simply, allows you to hang and change art without damaging walls, and without any screws, wall plugs or drills post-install.   They can turn any environment into commercially rentable gallery space.
 
 
Art Hanging Systems consist of 3 components:
  1. Hanging rail: extruded aluminium rail is fixed to the wall with special clips
  2. Suspenders: discreetly hung from the rail - available in steel cable or nylon (Perlon)
  3. Hooks: easily height adjustable hooks that stay firmly in place and are compatible with all hangers already fitted to pictures, including security fixings
Try adding our new Perlon Guides, 9474, to the top of frames to help them hang flat.
