Gallery systems are art hanging systems that offer flexibility, safety and durability when it comes to displaying art. Rearrange without wall damage, tools or costs.
The gallery system concept
A gallery system consists of 3 components:
1. A strong, narrow picture rail is mounted on either your wall or ceiling. 2. Suspended from the rail are cords or cables that can be placed in the rail at any required spot. 3. Finally, picture hooks are slid over the cord for the vertical positioning of your art.
By using cords and hooks instead of nails, artworks can be changed, rearranged and moved in the blink of an eye. You can easily tweak arrangements and safely hang heavy works of art.
In short: there's a reason galleries and museums use gallery systems. But why stop there? Gallery systems are also ideal for use in homes and are used frequently in for instance offices, educational facilities and nursing homes.
Gallery systems for home use
Gallery systems are neither extremely expensive nor exclusively intended for museum use. STAS offers elegant and barely visible rail types for the most common uses. Perfect for use at home to create your own gallery wall, your gallery from home or simply to hang that one gorgeous painting or family photo.
STAS minirail The patented STAS minirail is the narrowest and most innovative hanging system in the world. It measures just 0.6 inches in height, yet it can carry up to 55 lbs per running meter.
Gallery systems for use in museums and galleries
STAS j-rail and STAS j-rail max The systems in the STAS j-rail series are suited to professional use and look a little more robust than the minirail or cliprail systems. They work with rods instead of cords, which is ideal for rearranging artwork on high walls. STAS j-rail max caters to the heavy objects. The thick-walled aluminum profile can carry up to 220 lbs per running meter. It is also possible to add theft-delaying properties to your STAS j-rail system.
