Picture Racking

The safekeeping of artworks whilst in storage or on display is the priority of every art gallery, museum and historic collection. We offer 5 picture rack storage solutions: 1) static divider art racks 2) pull-out picture racks floor mounted with overhead guide 3) pull-out picture racks overhead supported with concealed floor guide 4) mobile base mounted picture racks 5) wall mounted mesh picture racks. These enable the storage of pictures, canvases, framed works and other ‘awkward’ media.

Steel mobile picture racks can be either floor mounted or suspended from the ceiling using ‘overhead gear’. Regardless of how it is installed, the system moves with ease providing full access to all materials. Racks are clad on both sides with heavy-duty mesh on which paintings and artefacts may be suspended in safety, avoiding contact with each other on retrieval. All materials are conservation grade.

The picture racks are constructed from heavy duty mesh panels using 3mm wire in 50 x 50 square sections. All frames are manufactured in 2 mm mild steel with the mesh welded inside the frame to avoid snagging. Double or single sided frames are available whether mobile or wall mounted. All components are powder coated giving a hard wearing and conservation inert grade finish.

This is a practical, safe and highly cost-effective system with the advantage of extra visibility and accessibility. Lateral or pull-out display features allow you to design a system precisely suited to your space and usage requirements. Due to its versatility our vertical picture racking is now being used for storing social history and weapon collections and items such as farm tools, swords, spears, stained glass and animal skins.

Our team of expert designers will consider the nature of the collection, the storage space available and the storage space required both currently and in the future. Using 3D modelling, a bespoke system will be designed to match the solution to your exact storage requirement and expectation.
