The Slimline Art Hanging System track is the core of the system providing a strong, durable and flexible base for domestic and light duty commercial use. The track is neat and unobtrusive in appearance and blends in will under a variety of cornices; it also looks great where the cornice has been square set.
Things to consider:
Colour / Finish
Choosing the finish can be a daunting task for some, however, in reality it is simple. Some clients prefer to choose white to match walls and minimise the visual impact of the track whilst others will opt for the Anodised Silver either to match different coloured walls or to contrast. Many interior environments use Anodised Silver in door/window frames, handles et cetera. As such the contrast approach often looks aesthetically appealing. The track can also be painted should a custom colour be required, generally we recommend running a fine grade sand paper over the track first to assist with adhesion.
Planning the system
Whether the track will be placed only where required or continuously around the room will ultimately be a personal preference or budgetary decision. In terms of height it sometimes makes sense to follow a pre-existing line, such as the top of window or door frames whilst others occasions may call for the track to be run at the top of the wall under the cornice.
Installing the track is a simple process that can be easily achieved by a home handyman or maintenance team member. The track is installed to the wall with the use of the ‘Wall Anchors’ which are sold separately. The track requires 1 pack of wall anchors per 2 metre length on average. Whilst it is recommended that the anchors be installed into the studs on a giprock/plasterboard wall, should you need to anchor into a hollow wall, ‘wall mates’ should be used. These are readily available from any hardware store.
Joins are easily taken care of by placing a wall anchor where the lengths meet, this will ensure and neat, continuous look.
