ARTWORK HANGING GUIDE

LARGE FRAMED PRINTS

Our large framed prints come with two brackets attached to the back of the artwork. In the middle of these brackets are two circles through which the artwork is hung onto your wall. Measure the distance between the two circles in the middle of the brackets as this is how far apart the two hooks on your wall will be placed. Ensure your two hooks are level. It’s then simply a case of placing your artwork straight onto the hooks. Always exercise caution when hanging heavy frames.

IMPORTANT - Never string a wire between the brackets. Over time, this could cause damage to your print through pressure on the corner joints of the frame. 

FRAMELESS ACRYLIC

Our frameless acrylic prints differ to our framed prints in that they use a batten hanging system. Upon unboxing your frameless acrylic wall art, you’ll find an aluminium batten taped to the back of it. This batten will need to be fixed to the wall you wish to hang your print on. Ensure it is level and place screws through the holes in the batten to securely fasten it to your wall. Battens for small to medium prints will have two screw holes, while those for large prints will have three. Once this is done, it is simply a matter of taking the frameless acrylic and latching it on to the batten. Once it’s hanging, you’ll find that your frameless acrylic wall art sits flat against your wall.

HANGING HOOKS AND/OR SCREWS

Make sure to use the correct hanging hooks or screws for the right surface and weight of your artwork. The type of hanging hardware to display your Scott Leggo wall art depends on the type of wall the photograph will be displayed (ie. a brick wall will require different hangers from a drywall finish). Please consult with a professional when choosing the types of hanging equipment.

HANGING HEIGHT

Artwork is best viewed at eye level. To get the right height for our frames on your wall, we recommend hanging the middle of the print at approximately eye height. We suggest a good height to achieve this is 155cm. An easy way to achieve this is to measure from the floor 155cm to the centre of the artwork. The hanging system on the back of the print sits higher than that, so you need to measure from the centre of the artwork to the bracket to get your exact height of where your hooks or screws should be placed.

HELFUL TIPS

  • For our large framed prints, measure the width between the two circles in the brackets. This will give you the exact distance of your two hanging points.
  • We recommend measuring twice and using a spirit level or laser level to ensure the locations are accurate before you commit to making any holes in your wall.
  • It’s best to use two people to hang your artwork to the wall.
  • Always use caution when hanging heavy frames.

DISCLAIMER

Hanging should be carried out by an experienced professional, and as such, these guidelines are provided for information only. Scott Leggo is not responsible for personal injury and/or property damage notwithstanding your proper adherance to these guidelines.
