Link Hangers

The Link Hanger is a very popular solution for hanging larger works of art up to 200 kg in weight and has been designed to accommodate both rebated and flat backed frames. The ‘link’ provides an immensely strong support between wall and frame and automatically bridges the gap that is so often found on older, heavy artworks with large frames.

 

The Link Hanger has a ‘bronzed’ finish that blends quietly with the shadows behind the artwork, and incorporates measures to improve security, allow for adjustment during installation or connect with storage options when not on display.
This fixing also carries the official stamp of approval by the UK Government’s Museum & Galleries Commission.
 
 
 
 
The Link Hanger is formed from steel with an electroplated ‘bronze’ finish. Each set comprises two link hangers. They are 85mm high x 25mm wide.  All that you require to install the Link Hanger is screws to suit your particular artwork. We recommend using a 4mm diameter panhead screw, as these provide a clean smooth finish. If these are not available, then countersunk screws will also work.
When installing rebated frames, we suggest placing the Link Hanger well in from the edge so that it is ‘lost’ in the shadow behind the artwork.
