    PRODUCT DETAILS

    The hanging track range is ideal for environments where the works of art are changed frequently or where it is inappropriate to damage the wall surface.

    C track is a small extrusion designed to be applied to the ceiling in environments where it is inappropriate to fix to the wall, and provides a stable point to hang artworks from using a variety of materials including transparent cord, stainless cable or stainless rod. The C track can be fixed to existing ceilings as a surface installation or attached prior to the application of drywall to achieve a completely flush finish.

    • Stainless Steel Rods provides the most rigid installation, can be supplied in silver or white and will support artworks up to 110 lbs (50 kg) per pair.
    • Stainless Steel Cable will provide the strongest flexible cable system and will support artworks up to 77 lbs (35 kg) per pair.

    **The GL series of hooks and hangers will only work with the stainless steel cable.


    **Each cable or rod requires a top block.
    ***Screws not included due to different use scenarios***

    C-TRACK:

    USEFUL TIPS AND GUIDELINES

    Hanging artworks from the ceiling will never match the weight capacity of hanging from a wall. The C Track is slim and robust but it’s overall strength will be governed by the number of fixings into something solid. Because ceiling support structures vary so much, we have designed this track with an internal countersink and drill centering mark. This means that it’s easy to drill the track wherever you find a secure fixing point and know that the countersunk #8 screw will sit snugly in the base of the track.

    Bear in mind that when an artwork is hung away from the wall, it has a tendency to lean forward. With the goal of keeping the work as vertical as possible you should make your attachments as high on the rear of the frame as possible or even consider the option of fixing to the top edge of the frame.

    It is not recommended to affix into the drywall alone. always attach to a stud or other structural member. 

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

    Drill the track so that the fixing points coincide with a joist or something solid as this will ensure a far higher load limit for the track than if fixed directly to the drywall. The inside of the track already has the countersink for the screws built in. You should fix the track as close to the wall as possible as this will help to mitigate ‘picture lean’. When installing more than one length of track, insert one of the pins (supplied) halfway into the small circular opening at the end of the track and use this pin to engage with the next section. This will ensure that all pieces of track are in good alignment.

    Repeat this process until you reach the last section and trim to the correct length.

    Hanging your Artworks:

    With stainless cable, feed the cord through the top block and insert into the opening at one end of the track. With stainless rods, insert the top blocks into the opening at one end of the track and slide to the correct position. Then screw the rods into place from underneath.

    Slide the appropriate barrel up the cord or rod from the bottom and tighten at the required height. It’s much easier to do this with the two lengths side by side so that the barrel heights match.

    For artworks with cord on the back, just place the cord over the hook.

    With the rods at the correct distance apart, the artwork is lifted into place so that the hanging hook engages with the D-ring on the back of the artwork.
