The Slimline Art Hanging System ‘Wall anchors’ are an essential component of the system which allow the track to be securely fixed to the wall. The anchors are a strong nylon rectangular piece over which the track ‘snaps’ on.
Things to consider:
The anchors have been cleverly designed with tabs at the top which assist with vertical alignment when the track is to be installed against a cornice or ceiling. In addition, owing to their rectangular nature, they are intended to be used where track may join to ensure everything neatly lines up.
Installing the anchors is a simple job which is achieved with the included screws and masonry plugs (for cement or brick walls). Whilst several different approaches can be employed we generally recommend placing an anchor on every stud and then filling in the remain anchor points, such as track ends and joins, as required using ‘wall mates’. Naturally, when installing on a masonry surface the anchors can simply be evenly placed. Remember to allow a small space at the ends for any end caps. Always read the included instructions before installation.
