C Rail is a heavy duty ceiling system. It's designed with heavy pictures in mind, so is compatible with our Classic Hanging Rods. However, it can also use our transparent 'Perlon' cords for lighter pieces, when a heavy duty hanging rod wouldn't be necessary (...and also more expensive!).
The system is fairly straight forward to install. The aluminium tracking simply screws directly into your ceiling, and can be painted over when decorating. All Hanging Rods, Cables & Cords have adjustable picture hanging hooks, that can make positioning your pictures, easier than ever. Aluminium Rail Profile: 20 x 19 x 8 mm.
There are many different types of Picture Hook, that you can use with the cords, cables and rods. Some are designed to be used solely with Transparent Perlon Cord and steel cable, and others only with Classic Hanging Rods. For hooks used with cord & cable, variations are partly due to their difference in weight capacity. As the breaking strain of steel cable vastly out weighs that of it's transparent nylon counterpart, hooks that are designed for Perlon Cord don't have an as high weight capacity; as those for cable. What can also vary, is the existing hanging fixtures, already mounted on the back of your pieces. So our range of hooks has been developed to cover many different types of fixtures, as well as pictures: Framed or Un-framed, Mounted Posters, Plates, Ceramic Tiles etc. Note: The weight range of your pictures is definitely something to take into consideration, when buying any form of hanging system or fitting!
Our range of Picture Hanging Systems have been especially popular among the many modern art galleries around London and the United Kingdom, since the turn of the Century. Globally, for the past decade they have proved to be an essential installment in many new offices, homes & galleries!
