H Track


 

The hanging track range is ideal for environments where the works of art are changed frequently or where it is inappropriate to damage the wall surface.

H Track is a discreet extrusion designed to be applied to existing wall surfaces at a high level so that it blends with the ceiling junction or mouldings, and provides a stable point from which to hang artworks using a variety of materials including transparent cord, stainless cable, or stainless rod.
 
 
·         Stainless Steel Rods provides the most rigid installation, can be supplied in silver or white and will support artworks up to 110 lbs (50 kg) per pair.
·         Stainless Steel Cable will provide the strongest flexible cable system and will support artworks up to 77 lbs (35 kg) per pair.
·         Perlon Cord is semi-transparent and blends with most surfaces and is the best choice for a discreet installation. Will support artworks up to 55 lbs (25kg) per pair.
*The GL series of hooks and hangers will only work with the stainless steel cable.
*Each cable or rod requires a top block.
*Screws not included due to different use scenarios
 
 
 
 
 
All of these systems are compatible with the Ryman hanger range for a higher level of security.

 
Useful Tips and Guidelines:
We recommend that the track runs continuously along the wall including above any doors or window openings. Even though this part of the track may never be used it maintains a clean visual line that blends with the building, whereas individual sections of track will look fragmented and draw your attention.
The track comes pre-drilled at 1' intervals which will suit the majority of installations. If you wish to hang seriously heavy artworks (in excess of 300 lbs) then we recommend drilling more frequent fixing points at every 6" or even 4". The track can then sustain loads of 1100 lbs when supported on the stainless steel rods. We recommend that you contact us for larger top blocks which will help distribute the load if you are planning to hang seriously heavy artworks.
 
Installation Instructions:
Hold the first section of track in place and mark the screw holes. Drill and fix the track making sure that it is installed with the ‘mouth’ of the track pointing down and the screw holes running along the top. Then repeat this process for the second section after inserting one of the pins (supplied) halfway into the small circular opening at the end of the track and use this pin to engage with the next section This will ensure that the tracks all align beautifully.
Repeat this process until you reach the last section and trim to length.
 
Hanging Your Artworks:
With Perlon cord, feed the cord through the top block and insert from the end or through one of the slots on the top face. With stainless cable, feed the cord through the top block and insert from the end or through one of the slots on the top face. With stainless rods, insert two top blocks from the end or through one of the slots on the top face, then screw the rods into place from underneath.
Slide the appropriate barrel up the cord or rod from the bottom and tighten at the required height with the bolt heads facing toward you. It’s much easier to do this with the two lengths side by side so that the barrel heights match.
For artworks with cord on the back, just place the cord over the hook. If you are using the Small Ryman Hanger, hook it over the small bolt and discard the large one and vice versa for the Large Ryman Hanger. For maximum strength be sure to tighten both the bolt (using a screwdriver) and the grub screw (using an allen key).
With the rods at the correct distance apart, the artwork is lifted into place so that the protruding boltheads engage with the Ryman plate on the back of the artwork.

Displays for Art

Displays for art can come in variety of styles, and if you have an art collection you probably already have a number of gallery display stands already. Some art or antiquities do not stand on their own and need a display stand to hold them up or stabilize them if they are unsteady. Some pieces stand on their own or are made with a base attached. For the pieces that need help standing there are many options from art display suppliers as well as exhibition mount makers. There are many displays for art that are ready made stock items that can be purchased to display your art or artifacts. There are also some art display stands that you can bend yourself to get a customized fit for your artwork. These artifact displays are display armatures that come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles. For the more difficult pieces and complicated exhibition displays you may need to hire a custom mount maker. They can fabricate a display that fits your smallest art object to making a full display exhibition. So if you are an art collector, art gallery, museum, exhibition designer, or other institution you probably need displays for art. Here we show a number of categories for displaying art, artifacts, or collectibles.

Plate and Bowl Stands:

Collectible plates, bowls, cups and saucers are available in a wide range from many cultures and time periods. There are a number of ways to display plates, the most popular approach is the easel. Bowl stands require a deeper easel than a plate stand simply because bowls are deeper than plates. There are many stock plate and bowl stands in a variety of sizes and styles. Clear easels are available in a large range of sizes going up to 18” tall to hold a platter or charger. There are also clear bowl stands as well. Some clear stands are also adjustable, allowing you to adjust for depth or the angle of display. Easels in wood are also available in a number of sizes and finishes including deep easels for bowls. These easels are folding so the depth has some adjustability. There are risers for plates and bowls as well as platform easels, which are used for objects with pointed bottoms like a “heart“ shape. Risers can also be used to display the piece at a higher level so something can be placed out in front. Another way to display a plate is on the wall. The size and weight of your plate will determine which style wall hanger is best for your needs. Standard spring wire holders can be used on lighter plates. These have some adjustability to them in the expansion of the spring. Other adjustable holders are plastic and put less stress on the point of contact. Larger plates can be displayed with an adjustable acrylic wall holder. Another option for wall mounting, in both metal and acrylic, are wall easels. Displays for cup and saucer sets are available in both acrylic and metal. In addition, there are displays that hold multiple plate settings.

T-Track


The hanging track range is ideal for environments where the works of art are changed frequently or where it is inappropriate to damage the wall surface.

T Track is our most recent track system and can be applied to existing walls or installed during the building phase for a more invisible solution. It’s designed to fix to the wall tight up against the ceiling and gives the appearance of a floating ceiling. This is a very strong track, able to support artworks up to 650 lbs with the appropriate installation.

It’s very easy to use, enabling artworks to be hung from clips inserted at any point along the track, and suspended using a choice of transparent cord, stainless steel cable or stainless steel rod.

 
·         Stainless Steel Rods provides the most rigid installation, can be supplied in silver or white and will support artworks up to 110 lbs (50 kg) per pair.
·         Stainless Steel Cable will provide the strongest flexible cable system and will support artworks up to 77 lbs (35 kg) per pair.
·         Perlon Cord is semi-transparent and blends with most surfaces and is the best choice for a discreet installation. Will support artworks up to 55 lbs (25kg) per pair.
·         *Each cable or rod requires a top block.*
·         *Screws not included due to different use scenarios*


 
All of these systems are compatible with the Ryman hanger range for a higher level of security.
 

Useful Tips and Guidelines:
For the most discreet finish we recommend that the T Track is installed before any wall coverings are fixed. This means screwing the track into place tight up against the ceiling and then fitting the drywall snug to the underside of the track.
Alternatively the track can be surface mounted to an existing wall tight up against the ceiling.
Installation Instructions:
Hold the first section of track in place tight against the ceiling and mark the screw holes. Drill and fix the first section of track in place with the screw holes running along the top. Then repeat this process for the second section after inserting one of the pins (supplied) into the small circular hole at the end of the track and engaging with the next section. This will ensure that the tracks all align beautifully.
Repeat this process until you reach the last section and trim to the correct length.
Hanging Your Artworks:
With Perlon cord, feed the cord through the top block and ‘hook’ it into the track.
With stainless cable, feed the cord through the top block and ‘hook’ it into the track.
With stainless rods, hook the top block into the track and screw the rods into place from beneath.
Slide the appropriate barrel up the cord or rod from the bottom and tighten at the required height with the bolt heads facing toward you. It’s much easier to do this with the two lengths side by side so that the barrel heights match.
For artworks with cord on the back, just place the cord over the hook. If you are using the Small Ryman Hanger, hook it over the small bolt and discard the large one and vice versa for the Large Ryman Hanger. For maximum strength be sure to tighten both the bolt (using a screwdriver) and the grub screw (using an allen key).
With the rods at the correct distance apart, the artwork is lifted into place so that the protruding boltheads engage with the the Ryman plate on the back of the artwork.
