In 1989 the Berlin Wall was still up, ‘Seinfeld’ first aired on television and we began selling ‘The Gallery System’! Since this time there have been a number of hanging systems come and go which has led to problems for people trying to source additional components as new pieces of art come along and fashions change. Naturally, we assist where ever possible in using the existing infrastructure a potential client may have, however, on some occasions, the only option to remove and replace… If only our system had been installed initially!
During this time ‘The Gallery System’ has changed too, with improvements and additions over the years that make the system more usable and generally better than it was in 1989. The improvement, however, has always been done with a commitment to backward compatibility, and because of this our very first customer can still purchase new components to use with their system!
This might seem trivial at the start of your product journey, however, given the investment, I would urge you to do your future self (or a future owner!) a favour and purchase a brand with a track record of availability and compatibility over a long period of time. ‘The Gallery System‘ and ‘Slimline Art Hanging System‘ both deliver on this front!
