    Strongest Hooks for Your Heavy Wall Hangings
    When you have heavy objects to hang, be it large paintings, framed mirrors, or large wall objects, your hooks have a heavy load to carry. The correct hook to support an item you wish to display may be determined by the type of object, as well as its weight. AS Hanging Display Systems offers several hooks capable of providing the needed support.

  5. Hanging Displays on Curved Walls

    Hanging Displays on Curved Walls
    Readers and visitors have their own reasons to consider using hanging system hardware in their building, residence or project. However, most of these reasons fall into a small number of categories, the main one most likely is overcoming the challenges of placing objects on difficult walls. Difficult wall applications may include curved walls, walls made of masonry or glass, or simply walls with an elaborate finish that are impossible, or extremely costly, to repair if damaged. In this blog entry, we will explore the first of these: curved walls. Depending on the radius of the curve, hanging art on such walls may be problematic. There could be a large gap behind the center of a framed piece when hanging from a concave surface, or one that bows inward. This could be further exaggerated by a small wall-radius, a wide frame or conventional hanging hardware.

  6. When Cork Display Rails Fail

    When Cork Display Rails Fail
    The Cork Display Rail Also called an art rail or map rail, the cork rail was introduced in the 1940s and was well established in the educational setting by the 1960s. Today it can be found in K-12 classrooms everywhere as designers and architects continue to specify cork rails for new school construction. Cork display rails have survived in the classroom for over a half-century because of their sheer simplicity and unmatched versatility, the same reasons why they're so difficult to replace. So any new display technology that isn't as simple or versatile as cork rail doesn't stand a chance in today's classrooms. And to finally end cork rail's reign, it would also have to excel in areas where cork rails fail!

  10. Using Frame Stabilizers to Create a Professional Wall Display

    Using Frame Stabilizers to Create a Professional Wall Display
    A Frame Stabilizer becomes a useful tool when the top of a frame hangs away from the wall, and the bottom of the frame tilts inward towards the wall. This is caused by the way in which the average framed art piece is prepared with a hang wire on the rear side of the art. To easily solve this problem, place a frame stabilizer on our hanging cable (or rod, pictured) and hide it behind the lower rail of the offending frame.
