  • The Value of Hanging Art in Your Hotel

    The hospitality industry is transforming to give each visitor a customized and more localized experience. Independent hotels get the best mileage out of decor and style that represents the local attractions, and even major chain hotels have found more success in adopting local styles than maintaining a strictly national standardization. No matter what type of hotel you have, here are three ways to introduce more local style.

    1. Hang local pieces of artwork in the hotel rooms. Hanging art is a standard step in the procedure of styling new hotel rooms. But instead of using standard reproductions or landscapes, opt instead for work by local artists. They won't come in standard sizes, but they'll add unique appeal and history to each of the rooms. Use modular or adjustable hardware so even changing the artwork out doesn't necessitate extra work.
    2. Create displays in your lobby. The lobby is the first place visitors and guests will see. Whether you hang art from the walls or want to have a suspended display in the middle of the room, create a unique attraction that highlights a vital aspect of the tourist trade in your area. 
    3. Choose a color and hardware palette that matches your town. Different regions of the country have adopted different color palettes. Whether you have blue and white walls on the coast or browns and oranges through the southwest, colors help sell hotel rooms. Hardware does the same thing, whether your hotel will be styled in wood, steel, and bronze. 

    Every piece of your hotel should match and enhance your locality. Go to Systematic Art to find the hardware to do it.

  • Find Art Display Hardware that Protects Your Walls, Too

    Damage-free art hanging isn't just about protecting the pieces of artwork themselves. With the right equipment, you can also display your art without damaging the walls behind them. Whether you're hanging a display in a rented space and you don't want to risk your deposit or you're a homeowner with textured walls or wallpaper, here are a few options you have for damage-free hanging hardware:

    • Rod systems connect to the ceiling instead of the wall. Many commercial spaces have ceiling tiles that are laid in place and are uniquely suited for holding displays securely. With a rod system, you can use vertical supports that descend from structural supports in the ceiling. Not only does this leave the wall blemish-free, it is a modern, classy look that can pull your whole display together without pulling attention away from the art.
    • Use a cable system to create a floating art display. Many new developments in art hardware are based on the idea of a track system: with a single rail running along the intersection between the ceiling and the wall (or above, in some commercial spaces and schools), you can have your pick of display systems. With cables, for example, you can adjust the height and placement of any piece of art along the width of the rail. Cables are heavy-duty and can handle heavy displays, and you can choose the right color to either blend the cables into the wall or make a statement.

    Hanging art doesn't have to mean nailing hardware into the walls. Go to Systematic Art here to find even more choices for a personalized art display that keeps your surroundings in mind.

  • Three Advantages of Having a Click Track Display in Your Church

    Churches are where a lot of people get local information, see community highlights, and share news. Finding the right tools to display this constantly changing array of notices, play and performance information, and local calendars is critical for increasing community awareness and involvement. Here's how a click track displays system can help you do that:

    • Click track systems are modular, so you can resize them based on available wall space. No matter the size of your community message board, or if you need to make adjustments for a seasonal display, a click track can easily fit the dimensions you have available. It can also be reduced or added to in just a few minutes, and because the materials are lighter than display cases, anyone can manage the change safely.
    • Click track displays allow for easy, frequent changes without anything getting covered. One of the main disadvantages of enclosed message board is that overcrowding can lead to partially obscured information; it's also hard to remove an expired notice without disrupting the nearby notices and community art. But a click track keeps all of the individual components neatly arrayed, and it's easy to both rearrange pieces and remove individual notes.
    • Click tracks are unobtrusive. Because click tracks are a very minimalist display, they don't detract from the overall decor of the church or the individual pieces of art and information. These hanging systems are popular because they can fit into any setting and for any purpose, whether you need a display that is purely informational or you need a display for art and seasonal decorations.

    Having quality hanging hardware that you can modify, resize, and use for any display is critical for community centers like churches. Go to Systematic Art to find the supplies that fits your front hall.

  • What's in the Details of an Adjustable Art System?

    Adjustable hanging systems are perfect for galleries and information displays that routinely face a lot of change. You can modify a display according to the arts' dimensions, remove and add new rows and columns, and entirely change a space. Here are some of the unexpected details of a quality adjustable system:

    • You should have adjustable edge grips to securely hold the signs and displays. Different designs have different thicknesses. While some displays frame the signage and descriptions and so can roughly standardize the thickness, you don't have to with the right adjustable hardware. Our silver satin edge grips have openings ranging from 1/8 of an inch to 5/8 of an inch, or even to one inch, so you can secure elements of your displays without having to worry about thickness.
    • Click track displays give you the ability to change spacing without installing or modifying hardware. Adjustability should be convenient, and that means giving you the greatest flexibility with the least amount of time, effort, and technical labor. Instead of having to reposition a multitude of separate hanging displays, a click track system lets you use the same infrastructure for multiple pieces of art without being a visual distraction. Click tracks also allow for quick turnover so even last-minute display changes are a breeze.

    Adjustability and modular elements of hardware that you can combine, simplify, and modify are some of the best tools for transforming art displays easily and without increasing the risk of damage to the artwork and the walls. Go to Systematic Art here to see which hardware is best for your displays.

  • What Should You Look for When Selecting Hanging Hardware to Keep Your Art Safe?

     Damage free art display should be as simple as selecting the right tools for your specific pieces of art instead of making your own solutions through an accumulation of miscellaneous hardware. At Systematic Art, you can find precisely what you're looking for, no matter the size or make-up of your art. Here are three factors to keep in mind:

    • Find supports that you know can handle the weight. Heavy artwork might feel like a risky investment, especially the first time buy handle something either large or weighty. But the right equipment should keep it just as safe as lightweight watercolors. Verify the weight of both the piece itself and the frame, as well as the hardware, before choosing which equipment you will use. Make sure the total is a healthy margin away from the edge of any hardware's range: additional weight during the installation and hanging process is to be expected.
    • Choose unobtrusive materials that protect it from the elements. Air has moisture no matter how well you ventilate and dehumidify a display area, and that moisture can damage paper over time. Find the right protective framing that keeps both the front and the back of the piece dry.  But it's not just equipment that matters when it comes to moisture; keeping fragile pieces of art away from bathrooms and kitchens is also a key part of keeping them in good condition.
    • Take advantage of new UV technology. Just like with sunglasses, art hardware is getting better and better at blocking the rays of the sun without causing a tint or discoloration. If your art is on display near a window, the colors might be fading fast. Find the right tools to protect the surface from light, as well as a frame that can support it in case the piece starts to become brittle from pre-existing damage.

    Hanging your artwork is about more than just displaying the pieces; it's also about protecting your collection from damage and stress. Go to Systematic Art to find the best hardware to hang your art.
