2 designs because... tastes differ

If there is something that we have learned over the years is that tastes differ. Which is a good thing because unity.., well, is rather boring. We therefore choose to provide our wooden picture rails in 2 different designs with distinctive profiles so that there is something for everyone. The STAS windsor is our classic victorian design with elegant and warm features and the STAS riva is our modern design with a robust look and feel.

The carrying capacity of the STAS windsor and the STAS riva is the same. Both rails can carry up to 20 kg per meter with the matching hooks. The measurements of our wooden picture rails are as follows:

Length: 94,49 inch (2,4m)

Height: 1,77 inch (45mm)

Thickness: 0,71 inch (18mm)

Wooden picture rail mouldings = Endless possibilities

The possibilities with the wooden picture rail mouldings are endless, since they are perfectly suitable to repaint (but before you do, don’t forget to degrease and sand the picture rail mouldings before you stain or repaint them to achieve the best results!).

Draw attention to them for instance, by painting the picture rail mouldings in contrasting colours to the walls as shown below..

....or experiment with a colourful wallpaper underneath (or above!) your wooden picture rail moulding.

Because of their unique designs, both STAS windsor and STAS riva require different hooks. The STAS moulding hook is available for the STAS windsor in 3 different colors: white, silver and gold. The STAS hook riva is ofcourse suited for the STAS riva and is available in the color silver.

The cords that are suited for the STAS windsor and riva are our STAS cables with loop. To be exact we are here talking about the STAS perlon cord with loop and the STAS steel cable with loop. Keep in mind the weight you want to hang when you want to order hooks and cords. As you see in the picture below, the hooks and cords have different load capacities. The STAS zipper and the STAS smartspring ensure that you can easily hang your wall decoration at the right height. Redecorate as often as you like!

Quality wood

We believe in sustainable products with excellent quality. Products to which you can trust your most dearest pictures and artwork. Therefore, we make it our top priority to find the best quality products for our customers. It is therefore not surprising that our wooden picture rail moldings are made of Ayous wood. Ayous wood has the unique ability, unlike other types of wood, that it does not deform in any way nor does it split or splinter.

The STAS windsor is suitable for wall mounting and it can also be mounted from at least 1 centimeter underneath the ceiling.
