  • Display Artwork Professionally with the Ceiling Mounted Cable System

    Display artwork securely and easily with our ceiling mounted cable hanging system.  If you are looking for a clean and classy way to display artwork in an office, shop or gallery, our ceiling mounted system is a great choice.  Why choose this system over any other?  It is easy to install, and it looks professional. 

    Here at Systematic Art, we want you to have a gallery-quality presentation in any setting.  After all, any space can become an instant gallery with the right artwork on the walls.  With our ceiling mounted cable hanging system, setup is simple.  Cables extend from a picture rail that is mounted to the ceiling.  Hooks may be adjusted to ensure that all of your pictures sit at eye level.  Viewers will barely notice the cables or unobtrusive picture rail, and the artwork will be the star of the show.

    This system lets you dress up a drab space, and it allows you to change out artwork easily.  It also opens up the possibility of inviting local artists to display their paintings or photography on a rotating basis.  Simply remove the artwork from the hooks, and swap it out for something new.

    We also keep our cable hanging system customizable so that you can have hardware that matches everything around it.  Every space is different, and we want you to be sure that the system you purchase is right for your space.  Just use the Easy System Builder on our website to get started. The picture rail is available in white, silver or natural.  Match it to your wall color for a subtle look.  The hanging hooks and cable hooks come with color options, too.  Additional accessories, such as picture stabilizers and drywall anchors, are also available.  

    The ceiling mounted system adds a polished look to your art display and is adaptable to many types of spaces.  At Systematic Art, we are happy to work with you as you choose the perfect artwork display system.  If you have any questions about our ceiling mounted cable system, please contact us.

  • How to Choose Hooks for Cable Systems

    Once you've chosen your hanging system, it's time to select the best hooks to meet your needs. Systematic Art offers great choices, so how do you pick? If you've decided to use cables, available with each of the cable systems as well as ceiling attachments, tensioned display systems, and sign suspension kits, there are 12 hooks from which to select. Here are some tips:

     

    Low-Weight Frames: The maximum weight for these hooks ranges from 12 lbs (5.4 kgs) to 26 lbs (11.7 kgs) on stainless steel cables and is 10 lbs (5 kgs) for the hooks that take nylon cables.

     

    Heavy-Weight Frames: These choices support either 50 lbs (22 kgs) or 135 lbs (61 kgs).

     

    Unframed Gator or Foam Boards: Because of its trough shape, two hooks can be used to suspend gator or foam board, with one right side up at the bottom and one upside down at the top.

     

    Nylon Cables: Most of these nylon cable hooks are appropriate for low weights, except for the Self-Gripping - (Utility) - Security Hook, rated for weights up to 50 lbs (22 kgs).

     

    Moulding Hooks and Loop-End Cables: This is the choice when using moulding hooks with wooden picture rails and loop-end cables, although the hook is also compatible with most other cables. It is a good choice for small items and is rated for weights up to 32 lbs (14.5 kgs).

     

    Security Hooks: These hooks have a feature to prevent objects from dislodging or slipping off their hooks.

     

    All-Around Hooks: These versatile options hold up to 32 lbs (14.5 kgs) on stainless-steel cables and are compatible with cable rod, ceiling couplers, hanging cables, and tension systems.

  • Hanging Systems in Historic House Museums

    If you work in one of the United States' numerous house museum you may be looking for new ways to hang decorative pieces or to create an exhibit within a period room. Whether or not your museum has picture rails, Systematic Art has hanging systems that will work for your space.

    Houses built between about 1840 and 1940 often included wooden picture rails as part of their moulding, providing a customizable way to hang paintings, photographs, and mirrors. The lipped picture rail accommodates a moulding hook, which supports the wire suspending the hung object. Continuing the use of this original feature of the house helps preserve the home's walls, often plastered or wallpapered, which are a part of the museum's collection. Both practical and decorative, no nails or screws are needed and studs do not need to be located. Using a modular system, items that are hung can easily be moved left, right, up, and down, and the number of items can quickly and easily be altered as well.

    Have Picture Rails?

    For house museums that do have picture rails, we offer moulding hooks to slip over the picture rails. The stainless steel loop-end cable hangs from the moulding hook and is available in lengths from 48 inches to 240 inches. A variety of cable hooks are available to hang the objects. The cables are rated for weights up to 40 pounds.

    Don't Have Picture Rails?

    For house museums that do not have picture rails as part of their historic structures, Systematic Art offers six styles of aluminum picture rail (or track) options that can be installed along the top of the walls or on the ceiling. Each has available cables or rods and hooks. While these systems are mounted to the museum's walls or ceilings, once installed, they offer continuing flexibility. The systems are rated for weight capacities from 65 pounds to 250 pounds.

Systematic Art contains a variety of options to suit to the needs and wants of their customers and how they desire their work to be viewed. The choice is important in the display chosen to not only speak for but give a visual of how the company carries itself and what is expected of it toward attracting customers.

    Acrylic pocket displays are used to easily hang photos, real estate listings, advertisement, documents, menus and artwork. How the display is represented reflects greatly on the business and what they want to achieve from their presentation. No matter the product or services offered, the display selected will make the true impact on the customer and clients. Acrylic pocket displays give a basic, yet appealing look that provides a clean and professional appearance.

Acrylic is inclined to have a significant amount of wear, including rotting and rusting, but are also more versatile than displays of other materials. Systematic Art understands the importance of sturdy, flexible, and appealing displays.
