Hanging system

The gallery uses the clip-rail hanging system, which provides for easy and accurate hanging. We use nylon perlons and self-locking hooks for artwork up to 10kg, or cylinder hooks for lighter works. There are also 5 upright easels in 3 sizes available for window displays, plus a standard cradle for displaying unframed loose artwork.


The gallery has perimeter ceiling installed adjustable track halogen lighting which is flexible and has matt white coated walls and ceiling.
