STAS art hanging systems: how do they work?

  1. An art hanging system is essentially a rail system. It all starts with an aluminum picture rail that can be mounted to either wall or ceiling.
  2. The matching cords (or steel cables) can be hooked into the rail at any desired spot.
  3. Subsequently, artwork can be hung from the patented STAS smartspring or STAS zipper. These picture hooks can be slid up and down the cord to the desired height.
