  • Choosing Your Best Cable System

    Ever notice picture rails lining the walls of an old house? Sometimes mistaken for decorative molding, picture rails are common in many 19th century homes. Basic in concept, these lipped rails create a ledge to suspend artwork using a hook attached to ribbon or wire. This hanging method prevents unnecessary hammering into the hard plaster walls common in older homes.

    At Systematic Art, we bring this simple solution into the modern age with our adjustable cable systems. Whether intended for a home office, museum wall, or coffee shop display, our cable systems give you this tried and true technique with a sophisticated new look. But how do you choose the best cable system for you?

    Step 1. Choose a picture rail style

    Our picture rail options come in two main types: wall mounted and ceiling mounted. What kind of walls are you working with? If your walls are brick or marble, ceiling mounted may be a better option for you, as it avoids drilling into these hard materials. How heavy is the artwork you are going to hang? Each of our picture rails is rated to carry up to a certain amount of weight, so be sure to take this into account when making your selection.

    Step 2. Select a hanging cable

    While many different cables are available, take time to confirm which types are compatible with your desired picture rail. Many of our cables come in two material options: stainless steel or nylon. Stainless steel cables are a sleek and sophisticated look, like stainless steel appliances in a modern kitchen. However, if minimizing the appearance of your hanging system is desired, consider using nylon for a near invisible or "floating" look.

    Step 3. Pick a hook

    Our various hook options securely connect your artwork to the hanging cable. Two main types exist: side screw, which is tightened to the cable with the turn of a screw, and self gripping. Which you select will depend on the type of cable used and how much weight you need the hook to bear. Finally, if color is what you're after, our Self-Gripping - (Picture Hook) with Safety-Lock comes in a variety!

    Step 4. Need anything else?

    Now that you've found the hanging cable system that works for you, we're here if you need anything else. From rail installation hardware to additional cable accessories and tensioners, we can help with all the final details to make your display perfect.

     

     

  • Don't Let These Small Details Ruin Your Art Display

    Small details can distract you from the beauty of your new art display. A crooked line here or mismatched hook there will eventually become the first thing you see when you glance at the wall. Avoid these five problems with the right hanging hardware.

    1. Tilted frames

    Most art hardware for home use comes in the form of hooks. They also only support the top edge of the frame. This means every piece will slightly protrude forward at the top to allow for the hardware and then will tilt inward so the bottom rests against the wall. Bulky frames can minimize the tilt, but you need supports on multiple sides to fully remove it.

    2. Crooked grids

    If you're trying to create a photo wall, precision is key. Even an asymmetrical design needs level edges and a lot of detail work. But if your supplies are limited to stand-alone hooks and nails, it's hard to ever get the lines just right. Use a cable system instead that lets you move artwork along a fixed line.

    3. Holes in the wall

    Nails and hooks will leave holes in your walls. At best, they'll leave behind one or two when you take the photo down. But if you're trying to build a more precise design, repositioning can leave your walls covered in holes. Instead of hanging each picture separately, install an art display foundation so you can change out your artwork or make adjustments without leaving holes.

    4. Mismatched hardware

    As you collect more artwork or take more pictures, you'll run out of hooks and supports. But don't let miscellaneous hardware ruin the clean lines of your display. Use a universal design or a reliable vendor that offers extra and replacement hardware.

    5. Distracting hardware

    Your art display hardware should be a work of art, but it shouldn't steal the show. Opt for discreet, minimalist hardware that looks sleek, small, or nearly invisible. Then your art becomes the main feature on the wall.

  • 3 Ways to Organize 360° Museum Displays

    360° displays can generate a lot of excitement. Interested visitors can see more of the artifacts up close, and these higher-quality displays can bring in more visitors. Here's the hardware you need to make it happen:

    1. Use wire hanging systems so everyone gets a good view.

    If you have a popular new exhibit at your museum, the last thing you want is for a big crowd to ruin the experience. But if the artifacts drawing the biggest interest are up against a wall or encased in a bulky central case, fewer people can see them at once. Use wire hanging systems instead. Wires can give all of the structural support as metal frames, even for heavy artifacts, without obstructing the view.

    2. Suspend shelves from the ceiling for the illusion of more foot space.

    But center displays take up a lot of space. There need to be ADA-compliant dimensions for the pathways between exhibits, and even those dimensions can seem a bit tight if there's a lot of visitors. But hanging displays that don't touch the floor give the illusion of more foot room. You can still keep visitors far enough away from exhibits to keep the items safe. But just seeing more visible flooring gives people the feel of more breathing room.

    3. Run better lighting through ceiling-suspended systems.

    Lighting can make or break an exhibit. Make sure every exhibit and the top-tier artifacts in the cases have separate lighting to set the stage. This can be hard if you have to arrange cases on the floor and then install track lighting above the case. But when you use overhead systems, you can use the supports to hold lighting, too. Then it's guaranteed to line up.

    Good displays need to have good hardware. Go to Systematic Art to find everything you need for all of your museum's central and wall-bound displays.

  • 3 Ways to Bring in Business with Front Window Pocket Displays

    Acrylic pocket holders hold papers and posters in a nearly invisible support system of wires. That creates a clean, clear grid of visuals without the clutter of traditional display hardware. But no matter how clean and picturesque a display is, it has to be paying customers into your business for it to be worth the window space. Here are three ideas to make your displays more inviting:

    1. Show information about new listings or new products.

    People walking past your shop want to know what you're selling. But if you sell services instead of products, that can be tricky. So you a front window pocket display to showcase recent real estate lots available for sale, short promotions for different types of financial planning and advising you offer, or whatever best suits your business.

    2. Highlight the menu in a cleaner, more permanent display.

    Even part of your restaurant's revenue relies on foot traffic, then make sure your menu is something people want to look at. Don't just tape it to the front window or door. Encase it in a sleek window display to make a great first impression and bring in more business.

    3. Create a giant calendar of events and special hours.

    All you need for a calendar visible from the street is a seven by six grid. If you have a community center, a club or coffee house with live music, or a church, then you need a calendar visible from the front sidewalk. You can advertise live events, the start of group sessions, or any other regularly scheduled information. 

    Good hardware is the best backdrop you can have for front window displays. Don't let tape or crooked A-frames set the tone for passers-by. Browse our selection of hardware at Systematic Art and find the best tools for all of your storefronts.
