Hanging tips


Suspension systems for aluminum and Plexiglas panels Instructions & advices for hanging
The suspension system consists of 1 (if the product is portrait mode and 20x30 cm) or 2 (for all products) adhesive metal plates and two self-adhesive foam pads.
SUSPENSION SYSTEM IS PLACED AND ANCHORAGE OF PHOTOBOXPERSONAL BEFORE sent to the customer (the reason for this is the consistent position and to allow the glue to dry for 24 hours so that the product is ready to be hung up when unpacking).
Suspension Process (a tvåmansjobb depending on the size of the board):
You will need (not included):
- Spirit
- Pencil
- Picture Hooks & nails (we would recommend that you use a picture hook that is attached by two nails or a model that uses screws for our main perspex panels. If you have any doubt about the suitability of picture hooks on your wall type / weight on the board, we recommend that you discuss this with a professional craftsman / tavelramare)
- A little assistance / an extra pair of hands if the board is too big to hold with one hand.
1) Decide where you want to hang your painting, watching so that you have the right type of picture hooks that fit your wall.
2) Place the painting flat against the wall and mark carefully the wall at the top right or left corner of the painting with a pencil (try not to 'drift' around with the painting on the wall as metal hangers may cause marks on the wall).
3) Place the board (be careful not to create marks on the edges of the board if you set it down on a hard surface).
4) Measure the inside 85mm in width and 70mm down from your selection of the board's corners and makes one to mark on your wall here (the second mark now shows the metal plate on the back of your painting sitting).
5) Place the picture hook (not included) to the lowest point of your picture hook is just above the second selection, and attach the hook to the wall (we would recommend that you use a picture hook that is attached by two nails or a model that uses screws for our main plexiglass panels).
6) Hang your board carefully on this single picture hook and use a spirit level to ensure that the picture is hanging straight. Mark the wall with a pencil at the board's second corner.
7) Repeat steps 3, 4 & 5 to attach the other picture hook in the opposite corner.
8) Use an eraser and rub gently remove your marks on the wall.
9) Hang Your Painting.
10) Take a step back and enjoy!
- Attach or do not use any wire or rope between the metal plates to hang the painting on a single hook - metal plates are sharp and will cut through the wire / rope.
- Variations in temperature and humidity may affect the adhesive on the suspension system. Hang in areas where humidity is high (as in the bathroom) and try not to hang your painting above a radiator if possible, extreme changes in temperature and humidity affect not only adhesive but also the photo paper Your image is printed on.
- To ensure consistency in the color of your painting in the years to come, try to avoid to hang the painting in direct sunlight. Although the photo paper PhotoBox use is suitable for archiving (Fuji Crystal Archive or DPII paper) and color tested for over 75 years, you can direct sunlight shorten lifespan.
