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.
T Track is our most recent track system and can be applied to existing walls or installed during the building phase for a more invisible solution. It’s designed to fix to the wall tight up against the ceiling and gives the appearance of a floating ceiling. This is a very strong track, able to support artworks up to 650 lbs with the appropriate installation.
It’s very easy to use, enabling artworks to be hung from clips inserted at any point along the track, and suspended using a choice of transparent cord, stainless steel cable or stainless steel rod.
**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***
++All of these systems are compatible with the Ryman hanger range for a higher level of security.
For the most discreet finish we recommend that the T Track is installed before any wall coverings are fixed. This means screwing the track into place tight up against the ceiling and then fitting the drywall snug to the underside of the track.
Alternatively the track can be surface mounted to an existing wall tight up against the ceiling.
Hold the first section of track in place tight against the ceiling and mark the screw holes. Drill and fix the first section of track in place with the screw holes running along the top. Then repeat this process for the second section after inserting one of the pins (supplied) into the small circular hole at the end of the track and engaging with the next section. This will ensure that the tracks all align beautifully.
Repeat this process until you reach the last section and trim to the correct length.
Hanging your Artworks:
With Perlon cord, feed the cord through the top block and ‘hook’ it into the track.
With stainless cable, feed the cord through the top block and ‘hook’ it into the track.
With stainless rods, hook the top block into the track and screw the rods into place from beneath.
Slide the appropriate barrel up the cord or rod from the bottom and tighten at the required height with the bolt heads facing toward you. 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. If you are using the Small Ryman Hanger, hook it over the small bolt and discard the large one and vice versa for the Large Ryman Hanger. For maximum strength be sure to tighten both the bolt (using a screwdriver) and the grub screw (using an allen key).
With the rods at the correct distance apart, the artwork is lifted into place so that the protruding boltheads engage with the the Ryman plate on the back of the artwork.
