Recently we added a range of picture hanging hardware with the mindset of supplying great quality and innovative products that fill users with confidence when hanging art.
We began this journey by purchasing samples from a number of manufacturers around the globe for evaluation. Early on it became obvious that whilst many of the components looked similar they certainly were not!
When considering the samples we compared the following:
- Thickness & weight of materials used
- Finish of the materials
- Design of components
- Craftsmanship of production – some pieces were much better stamped, created and assembled than others
At this point we discarded a number of manufacturers who didn’t meet our standard and proceeded to additional testing with the remainder. One of the key tests here was a ‘load test’ as per the video of the ‘strap hanger load test’ above.
Whilst we do not recommend using any product outside it’s specification we want to demonstrate to you that we take product testing seriously so that you can be confident in the products we supply. We hope you find the ‘load test video’ useful.
It is our intention to continue to add products to our range inline with this philosophy. Please do contact us if you have any requests or feedback.
