Choose Your Rail Type

Easy Rail – Our closed-face Easy Rail Art Hanging System is perfect for galleries, museums the home or office, providing a sleek appearance when a beautiful, clean look is important. Easy Rail Systems provide a discrete appearance as they are both attractive enough to be used just as they are or they small enough that they can be mounted behind finish carpentry such as crown molding. This method will completely hide the track from being visible providing a clean consistent look.  These rails are very discreet.

Classic Rail – The Classic Rail System offers several configurations to meet your specific needs using cables or rods.  For a very clean look for items less than 15 lbs (30 lbs. if two cables are used) we offer a nylon cable that is barely visible and gives your items the appearance that they are magically suspended.  If you need a more robust system you can use aluminum rods raising the capacity up to 300 lbs.  The versatility of this rail can not be over stated.  If you need a multi-purpose rail and can mount it on our wall this would be your best choice.

Ceiling Rail – for unique applications where a wall mounting is not ideal Mbs offers a Ceiling Rail System.  This can be used where wall surfaces are not smooth, such as flagstone facing that is very popular or brick.  It can be used to mount art and painting where spaces have vaulted or cathedral ceilings bringing art into the active areas.

Choose Your Cables/Rods

After you know what rail is the best for your application the next step is to choose your cables.  To a certain degree the choice is made for you because certain cables only work with certain rails.  But you can choose between Clear Nylon Cables or Stainless Steel Cables.



Choose Your Hooks

Now that you have chosen your rail and your cables or rods you need to select your final piece of the picture hanging system in the hooks.  As with the other parts, some of your selection has been narrowed by your previous choices.  There are hooks for cables and hooks for rods.  You can make your choice accordingly. 




Accessories are not required but make the system more stable.  An examle would be our picture stabilizers and tensionsing systems.  

Picture stabilizers are used when using only one cable in the center of the piece.  They keep the art balanced on the wall so that it is not sitting crooked.  Where one side is not touching while the other is off the wall.  Or, If you have your art hanging where there is a breeze from open windows or fans this will keep it from moving.  We have them in small and large sizes.

Tensioning systems are just what they sound like.  They keep the cable taught with a spring loaded system.  This does require doubling the number of rails as the tensioners mount on the rails at the floor level.  But it looks great and really makes the system stable.  

If you have very valuable pieces, we recomend tensioners and hanging your art with two cables.  The tensioners keep the system rigid.  The double cables are just what they sould like.  Extra insurance.  Place one on each side of your piece.  This will insure that they stay exacly how you put them.  You will never have to straighten those pieces again.

Mounting Hardware 

The final choice you have to make is your mounting hardware.  Like much of the choices, this is made for you by the substrate you are mounting your system on and what is behind it.  In most cases these systems are hung inside on drywall surfaces so they require a mounting screw when screwing into a wall stud or an anchor to support the screw when no stud is present.  We also carry anchors for concrete installations as well.
