A professional installation job will save you from risks of personal injury or damage to your property, including your valuable artworks and mirrors. There are many factors to be considered when hanging large and heavy items on a wall. From the correct weight distribution, in order to preserve the frame as well as making sure the load bearing capacity of the securing points are matched to the weight of the mirror or picture.
When hanging a very large mirror or picture on a hollow/gyproc wall it is very important to secure it to the studs behind the gyproc sheet. Quite often it is almost impossible to match the two securing “D” hooks or recessed brackets on the mirror or art frame to the studs on the wall. Therefore, additional hardware is required in the form of failsafe split hanging system or french cleat with a 45 degree angle cut used in pairs, one cleat mounted to the wall and a matching edge with reverse angle mounted to the art or mirror frame. These systems can be mounted across multiple points on the gyproc wall including the studs. The cleat will not be seen later and it can be screwed into the wall studs relatively independent of the lateral position of the frame. The cleat can be the full length of the frame, so it allows supporting the large mirror or picture at least at every stud behind it. This will allow for very precise leveling as well as the optimum safety and weight distribution which in turn, will help to preserve the heavy picture or mirror frame in top shape, avoid warping or bulging. If the wall cleat is left slightly shorter than the artwork or mirror frame, the frame can be shifted left and right slightly after it is hung, for prefect positioning. Once the cleat is secured to the wall, the heavy picture or mirror can be just lifted on to it. Because no fine maneuvering is required even a relatively heavy picture, artwork or mirror can be hung easily this way. The bottom of the picture or mirror can be secured to the wall with an “L” bracket to be sure that it will not get moved along the cleat while in use.
