Artifact Wall Mounts are our newest addition in response to requests from our valued customers. We looked at the design and fabrication of hundreds of custom wall mounts we had made and realized that with a few adjustments we could make generic mount blanks for wall mounting artifacts. We are starting with one size and we will add additional sizes and designs as we produce them.
For our first wall mount we started with an 8" tall x 6" wide T Armature and we added a 3/4" offset to float it off of the wall plate. Both the arms of the T are fabricated from 3/32 Steel rod that have been soldered and heat treated to allow them to be bent more controllably. We finish up with a coat of semi-flat black powder coat for maximum durability and corrosion resistance. (You might notice the arms are bent slightly because of the sand blasting process. this is completely normal and not an issue)
*Note: Avoid putting pressure on soldered joints when bending.
The wall plate is simple and compact at 5/8" Tall and 2" wide but it is capable of supporting the mount and object when properly secured.
Attachment- For attachment to the wall we recommend screwing directly into a stud for maximum strength but should a stud be unavailable in your desired location there are many wall anchor types available to support a variety of weights. We recommend going with the strongest anchor available for your wall type. These are available at your local hardware store.

Sometimes a standard size just isn't right. You might want a larger armature or a smaller armature, or maybe you need a stronger upright or a more delicate upright. Whatever your need we can customize or custom build an armature for you.
