The first step in purchasing ‘The Gallery System’ is to decide on the track (or rails) required.  The track is available in 2 and 3 metre lengths in both Anodised Silver and Power Coat White finishes.

How much do I need?

Whilst most clients prefer to run the track then entire length walls for practical and aesthetic purposes, others will place the track only where likely to be required.   In either case we need to calculate the total linear metres required and the best break down of lengths; minimising cuts and joins.

We recommend measuring and recording the lengths of the walls to have The Gallery System track installed and then begin by allocating entire lengths to the walls.  When you get to a remainder smaller than a length, note it down for later.  Once all the walls have been allocated full lengths, begin allocating lengths to the remainders.  With this complete you will have a list of the required lengths for the gallery space.

If ‘The Gallery Lighting System’ is to be used, you will need to allow for lengths to stop 4 cm before the wall; allowing room for the lighting cable to turn the corner.

Which finish to choose?

The finish of the track is largely a personal choice however, some clients prefer to choose white in order to match lighter coloured walls whilst others will prefer the contrast look.  The track can be painted if desired.

Can the track be cut and joined?

The track can be easily cut with a basic hacksaw* and straight cuts can be achieved with a mitre box.  The Gallery System track does not require special joiners; it is butt joined where appropriate.

What is the weight rating per metre of track?

We don’t provide a per metre weight rating on the track.  Naturally when suspending art one can either suspend a few large pieces (heavy) or many small pieces but either way a natural limit is reached. We do however provide a capacity rating for our droppers and hooks; provided these are adhered too (up to 30kg per dropper in the case of the Stainless Steel) the track will be more than capable.
