Once upon a time hanging pictures and photos on your walls were nothing short of a time consuming and frustrating task, which often involved a bloody or bruised thumb and holes in the walls. There is nothing worse than lining up your photo or artwork, marking the spot carefully hammering in the picture nail, after measuring and re measuring again and again to find once you have finally hung your artwork it still isn’t straight.
Now you’ve got the point where you have two options, either start again and put more and more holes in the wall or leave it as it is- crooked picture and all, or wrong placement on your wall. Oh! the frustration, the pain, it’s no wonder quite a few of us have given up on hanging any more artwork or still have that crooked picture sitting behind somewhere we never look. After measuring, and measuring, whacking your thumb a few times and spending hours getting frustrated what if I told you there was an easier way with minimal measuring- only one small bit in fact?
That’s where Gallery Systems comes in with their minimally invasive and easy to use, easy to install photo and art hanging systems.
What is an art or photo hanging system?
You’ve probably already come across many art or photo hanging systems and just not realized that these are available for use in your own home or office. If you have ever visited a gallery, art exhibition, government building or university chances are you have seen them in use. Many businesses and organizations across the world use gallery hanging systems for their walls to display exhibitions, documents and artworks.
An art or photo hanging system consists of a track – which is mounted to your wall, this is the only step that involves measuring. The lightweight and easy to install track is often screwed into the wall requiring no other tools other than a screwdriver. For harder walls you may need a small drill hole, but simply line up the track which runs parallel with your cornicing, measure to the length you want and cut. Simply screw into the wall and you are done with the tools! For longer walls Gallery Systems art and photo hanging systems all have the option of purchasing the amount of track you need, giving you the freedom to expand your track at any time.
