  • What To Ask Yourself Before Buying Your Museum's Hanging System

       Museums have a lot of things to hang on the walls so their hanging system is an important investment. What you buy for your museum can make your life easier and your museum more efficient. So, before you invest, you should be clear on what you want and need from the 3 components that make up a system. 

    Rails

       The first question to ask is from where you want to hang the art. Most rails are mounted on the wall, but there are rails that you mount on the ceiling. The ceiling option lets you hang pictures in the middle of the room without installing walls in what should be an open space. However, it might not be feasible to use if you have a really high ceiling. The wall-mounted rails let you switch paintings or photographs out along the wall quickly. 

        The next question is how strong the rails need to be. Most can take far more than 100 lbs, but some picture frames can get heavy. You might also want to consider how versatile the rails are. Some pictures are best shown using a tension display system instead of a simple hanging one, and there are rails that can be used in both systems.

    Cables

        There are 2 options when it comes to cables: nylon and stainless steel. Stainless steel is strong and modern looking, perfect for holding up your heavier works and the most post-modern looking stuff. Nylon, on the other hand, is more discrete, blending into the wall and creating a more ethereal feeling to your museum exhibits.

    Hooks

         The most important consideration with hooks is whether they are compatible with the type of cable and rail that you are using. Is it a J-hook? It needs a lip to hang off of. A cylinder hook needs a hole to fit in.

        Keeping these considerations in mind while shopping for your hanging system will help you find one that makes putting up exhibits a breeze. If your museum is looking for a new hanging system, contact us. We have a wide array for you to choose from and you're sure to find something that fits your museum's art hanging needs.

     

  • Select The Right Sign and Banner Support Systems For Your Needs

    Systematic Art wants to ensure your signs and banners have enough support on the walls, windows, or poles. We also want to ensure your marketing and advertising materials are planted safely where they need to be — in a place where all your customers, clients, and potential customers can see them.

    When you want to make sure your high-quality advertising materials and signs in everyone's eyesight and looking amazing at all times. Systematic Art offers a variety of support systems, hardware, and other components that will give you the opportunity to hang your signs and banners properly. Our line of products will also ensure your marketing and advertising products will remain durable throughout the duration of your campaign.

    We have a full line of sign and banner supports, including the following:

    • Hanging systems
    • Tension systems
    • Mounting hardware
    • Suspension support systems

    We know that many companies choose their hardware based on a price, and other companies choose their hardware based on how they think it will work. Often times, the decision to choose hardware is not always made based on the support, strength, or durability. As a result, businesses can find themselves in a difficult situation when the banner or sign eventually gets blown away or knocked down. 

    Many people are not aware of all the circumstances they may face when they use hardware that is not durable or reliable. If you use weak support systems or brackets, your signs and banners can easily be blown away when you least expect it. We encourage you to carefully choose your sign and banner hardware carefully, especially if you plan to place them above sidewalks or other walking areas. 

    We want you to be positive that you are making the right decision for your needs when you are looking for hardware and other support systems for your company's signs and banners. For more information on sign and banner supports, please do not hesitate to contact Systematic Art today.

  • Create A Professional Display With A Cable Display System

    How many times have you tried to create a beautiful gallery style art display for your personal space or your office space? After you tried to create this display, did you have a significant amount of holes in your wall at the end of this project attempt? If you find yourself being constantly challenged by these type of projects when you are trying to set up your own display, Systematic Art is able to help you.

    We understand that it can be quite a challenge to position any type of art. You can take your time to measure the space, carefully drive the nail into the wall, and hang the picture as neatly as possible. However, once you step back, you realized that the picture is not in the right place.

    If you want to hang more art pieces, you will realize the difficulty will increase. After you have positioned everything, you will not be able to make a change, unless you want to start completely over.

    Systematic Art can put your frustrations to an end by allowing you to get rid of the hammers and the nails and replacing them with an art hanging system that will give you the flexibility and dependability you need.

    If your art piece is too high or too low, you can simply adjust the system. If you want to change your art pieces whenever you want, you will easily be able to do this with your cable display system. You can make various adjustments in just a few minutes.

    You can easily hang art pieces and signs on walls and in windows. Art and signs can significantly increase your exposure and your business's appeal, but only if you hang the pieces correctly. This is why we think you should use the Systematic Art's cable display systems. Are you ready to design a professional-looking display that will fit your current needs and your future needs?

    Please do not hesitate to contact us today for more information.

     

  • A Ceiling-Mounted Picture Rail System? Yes!

    Most people envision a wall-mounted picture rail system when considering hanging art. That said, there are the visionaries who look to the ceiling. What makes the ceiling-mounted rail such a compelling solution?

     

    Who Installs Ceiling-Mounted Picture Rails?

    Museums and art galleries have discovered that wall art does not necessarily require a wall mount. Although these types of mounting systems are most certainly a staple in many venues, there is just something different about the ceiling-installed presentation. The same is true for business owners who want their meeting rooms, conference locales, and lobbies to present with a chic, contemporary look.

     

    What are the Options?

    There are different rail systems that meet your need.

    • Slim line. It all but disappears from sight. Pre-drilled holes make installation a snap. Use it with dedicated hanging cables or rods. The technology supports artwork weighing up to 65 pounds.
    • Sky rail. The product is a heavy-duty rail that works well with cable rods and hanging cables. This rail is the product to select when your artwork is a bit heavier. The system supports loads of up to 145 pounds.

     

    Are You Ready to Take Your Interior Design to the Next Level?

    When you have a beautiful brick wall, juxtapose an ultra-modern cable setup with the old-fashioned wall. The use of the cables creates the right look. By the way, this is also an excellent opportunity to engage the viewer by slightly angling the display to have a top that juts out. Of course, you do not always work with a standard picture or mirror frame. Sometimes, you have a work of art that defies these boundaries. Give it the appearance of floating with the ceiling mount.

     

    If we have piqued your interest in finding out more about the advantages that a ceiling-mounted picture rail system can bring to your location, Systematic Art can help. Contact us today to learn more about your options.
