  • Hanging Your Art The Right Way With Museum Hanging Systems

    Many people find themselves being greatly inspired when they visit a museum, but we do not always think about what takes place behind the scenes of a museum or behind the scenes of an art exhibit. Valuable art pieces have to be secured properly, therefore, many museums use hanging systems that can secure the hanging of the art pieces.

    There are multiple reasons why museum hanging systems have currently set the standards for those in the art world, including the following:

    Will Not Cause Any Damages

    The right museum hanging systems will make a great alternative to nails and hammers. Who would want to use a nail and hammer to hang a beautiful piece of artwork in the museum? Museums need an efficient way of hanging art pieces, especially if they are constantly changing their themes throughout the year.  Hanging systems will allow the artwork to be changed freely without causing any damage to the walls. When you install the systems once, this is all it will take to change the works of art.

    Hanging Multiple Pieces of Art

    If you have been looking for an efficient and productive way to hang multiple pieces of art, a museum hanging system is just what you need. It will not be a problem if you have limited space because a museum hanging system will offer you the ability to hang your artwork neatly and securely.

    Art pieces will come in all sizes and shapes; you should not be limited to the type of art you can hang due to weight or shape. You need to be able to accommodate a wide scope of requirements, regardless of height, size, and shape. A museum hanging system will be able to easily adapt to the art regardless of the shape or size, unlike screws.

    If you have been looking for the right equipment to hang your art pieces, please do not hesitate to contact Systematic Art today.

  • 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. 


       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.


        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.


         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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 3 Benefits To Museums Using Hanging Systems

         Every museum must eventually mount something on the wall. Blank walls would just be wrong in a venue full of art. But when they put up their art, many museums reach for the old standbys: tape, hammer, and nails. These are fine, but there is a better way. You can purchase a hanging system consisting of tracks and fastening clips. You simply mount the track on the wall, slide your artwork onto the clips and click the art into place. This has three benefits over the traditional methods.


        There is no need to get a new nail when you want to change your art display. You can unhook the last piece from the clips, apply them to the new piece, and you are ready for your new exhibit. This saves the people setting up the display the hassle of hunting for a nail. It will let you conserve your nails for other projects, too, which saves you a lot of hassle when buying supplies for your exhibits.

    Preserve The Walls

         Artwork can get heavy and that means that putting the full weight of the work on one or two nails can strain the wall. The wall-mounted tracks spread out the weight of the artwork over a bigger area, making it far gentler on your walls. Plus, you don't have to find a new spot to hammer a nail into the wall when you hang a new picture. This means fewer holes in the plaster.

    Preserve The Art

         Wall-mounted rails are gentle on the frames. There isn't any straining against wire and gravity while it hangs. Most importantly, it's a secure way to hang the art so there is less of a chance that your pieces will get knocked over by careless handling or tremors. You don't want to have your piece's glass front cracked.

         If you think your operation could benefit from a hanging system, contact us. We have great art hanging systems that your museum will love.

These are the traits that you should be looking for in suspension systems for hanging systems.

    Proper Security

    The last thing that any client should ever want is to see a piece of artwork touching the ground. While suspension systems for hanging systems provide us with the chance to keep these works off of the ground, they are nothing without the proper security. Take the time to look the suspension system over first to make sure that it will be able to handle the job without any issues taking place.


    All suspension systems for hanging systems are not one and the same. Whether you are considering a Zurich suspension kit, a classic suspension kit or a self-gripping support set, it is important to take a closer look at our own personal needs to ensure compatibility. Some may need to hang items from one designated location and others may require suspension systems that are a bit more complex in nature. This is definitely something to bear in mind.


    Having a suspension system that serves to overwhelm the art that it is meant to place on display is not a wise choice. Choosing a minimalist suspension system is a great ideas because it allows the art to remain the center of attention. Otherwise, a more flashy or ostentatious choice could serve as a means of drawing the eye to a completely different place altogether.
