If you love art, work in an art gallery, or another place that has a lot of artwork, you may have heard about the benefits of art hanging systems. These systems can really be a great help to an art museum.
An art hanging system also is known as a gallery rail system. Below is more about this subject and its benefits:
#1 Change Display Easily
One of the greatest benefits of these systems is you can easily change how artwork is displayed on the wall. This allows for much greater convenience and lowers the need to make wall repairs.
Also, there are highly creative benefits that can come with these systems that are even more important than the practical reasons.
Many say that using a picture hanging system allows them to create artwork displays that are more attractive and appealing to customers.
Gallery owners used to need to put the art pieces on the floor to get a feel for a new layout. But this technique does not give a complete sense of what the new display will look like on the wall.
Users of picture hanging systems say it allows them to be more creative as it is easy to adjust position and height and to try different combinations of pictures in a few minutes. It also is possible to stagger the artwork and put one over the other easily.
#2 Get Good Alignment Fast
Paintings on a gallery wall should hang straight and be in perfectly aligned groups and rows. Doing this can take many hours of trial and error with hooks and hanging wires. But with an art hanging system, making a precise adjustment happens instantly. You do not have to spend hours measuring.
If you need to do a double hang with a wire on each side of the painting, you can align the hooks and the artworks are always straight. You can do this with a painting of any size.
#3 Save Money
Your typical art museum does not have a big budget. But it still needs to provide customers an excellent experience into the art world. An art hanging system is an economical and efficient way to accomplish this.
Now that you better understand the many benefits of a gallery rail system, you may want to consider adding one for your gallery.
After all, saving time, money and being more creative are all benefits that are museum curators and owners should value.
