Hanging System - CABLES

HANGING SYSTEM CABLES - The vertical Hanging System Cables are available in packs of ten, and in 2 or 3 metre length Stainless Steel or 3m Clear Plastic Tape. Selecting a quantity of 1 means you have selected one pack of 10 Hanging System Cables... 2 means you have selected two packs i.e. 20 cables... and so on. Large art pieces are usually hung on two cables at each end of the artwork. This allows for stability and perfectly straight hanging that will remain so, even with dusting and cleaning.

Hanging System Hanger Types:

The recommended weight on one Hanging Cable is 30kg. You have the option of hanging two or more pictures on each cable. The recommended weight on one hook - attached to the cable - is 20kg. The diameter of the cable is only 1.2mm so the system is unobtrusive. Both the Standard (Allen Key) and Push-button hooks can be attached to the cable.

The hanger pack contains 30m of tape to be cut to your required length, as well as 10 locking capsules that fit onto the track. You simply fit one tape end into the locking capsule and slide the capsule onto the track. The capsule is designed to lock the tape in place. The clear tape hangers blend with the wall colour, so as to be unobtrusive. Recommended weight on the tape hanger is 15kg. You can hang two or more pictures on one hanger. Please Note: Only the Standard (Allen Key) hooks can be attached to the clear tape hanger. 

How to Order:

  1. Decide on how many of your walls you would like to install the Gallery Hanging System. Is it a whole room or just a feature wall? Measure the length of the wall/s involved and divide the total by 3 (3m = 1 length of track). So if you have 22 running metres of wallspace it would be 22 ÷ 3 = 7.3 lengths of track. This means you would need to order 8 lengths of track.
  2. You no doubt have a good idea how many artworks you have to install.  Your artworks will hang permanently level with 2 cables and hooks per piece. Tip: You also may want to hang 2 or 3 pieces together, one below the other - which means 1 or 2 cables, but more hooks.
  3. Having ascertained your needs simply select your required type and quantity of Hanging System Cable and click the 'Add to Cart' button. Remember the Cables are sold in packs of 10. Now, go to the Hanging System Track and Hanging System Hooks product pages to finalize the rest of your order.

Installation:
Installing the Gallery Hanging System Track requires drilling into and precision cutting of the aluminium track. For professional installation contact The Hangman on 083 600 7846.
