Traditional picture rail molding

The picture rail is an old invention. In most cases, this functional molding was made of wood, installed just below the ceiling. It is most commonly seen in traditional homes with plaster walls. Hammering nails into the plasterwork will damage the wall. Instead of using nails, pictures can be suspended from the picture rail by using a wire and a picture rail hook. Rearranging the pictures is as simple as moving the hooks around.

STAS offers the following products for a traditional picture rail look:
1. Molding hooks in silver or gold
2. Perlon cords or steel cables to hang from the molding hook
3. Picture hooks to slide over your cord or cable: hang your pictures securely with STAS zipper or STAS smartspring

Combining a traditional picture rail molding hook with a perlon cord and a STAS picture hook is the safest and most flexible way to hang your pictures from a wooden picture rail.
