Hanging System - HOOKS

HANGING SYSTEM HOOKS - The adjustable Hanging System Hooks fit onto the stainless steel cable. They slide up or down the cable and lock into place either by tightening with an Allen key (standard hook) or by using the button (push-button hook). As with the cables the Gallery Hanging System Hooks are sold in packs of 10. Selecting a quantity of 1 means you have selected one pack of 10 hooks... 2 means you have selected two packs i.e. 20 hooks... and so on. Large art pieces are usually hung on two cables, which means you would need 2 hooks per artwork.

Hanging System Hook Types:

standard-hook-packaging.jpgStandard Hooks (for Clear Tape and Stainless Steel Cable Hangers) - The original hook for the Gallery Hanging System comes highly recommended for its strength and durability. It gets attached or fastened onto the cable or clear tape hanger with the Allen key provided. The recommended weight on one hook - attached to a cable - is 20kg. If you intend hanging two or more pictures per cable keep in mind that the recommended weight on one cable is 30kg. The maximum recommended weight on a clear plastic hanger strap is 15kg.



push-button-hook-packaging.jpgNEW Push-Button Hooks (for Stainless Steel Cable Hangers only) - A new addition to the Gallery Hanging System. It allows for tool-free operation as you simply push the button on top to slide the hook to a new position. Release the button for a vice-like grip which will hold up to 20 kgs. The hook itself is slim enough to fit into small ‘D’ rings. If you intend hanging two or more pictures per cable keep in mind that the recommended weight on one cable is 30kg.

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. Tip: Your artworks will hang permanently level with 2 cables and hooks per piece. 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 quantity of Adjustable Hanging System Hooks and click the 'Add to Cart' button. Remember the Hooks are sold in packs of 10.

Now, go to the Hanging System Track and Hanging System Cables product pages to finalize the rest of your order.

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