Brass Picture Rail

Brackets

Our traditional range of end and centre brackets have an elegant period design and offer secure mounting on solid walls.

Our round base ring brackets are simple, discreet and modern. When fitted with our optional rear spigot, they give extra support for heavier pictures and more secure mounting on weaker walls.

As a guide, it is recommended that brackets are placed at approximately one metre intervals.

Chains

Aesthetics and weight loading are important considerations in your choice and we offer five different sizes of traditional picture chain which are suitable for all sizes of artwork, tapestries or mirrors.

For use with rails, we usually recommend using a pair or parallel hanging chains.

We can advise on a range of decorative chains which may also be specified.

Finials

For simple and discreet finishing of the pole ends, we offer a choice of plain and stepped end caps.

For a more decorative flourish, you can select from our wide range of classic and traditional finial designs, all cast in our UK Foundry.

Poles

Each picture rail is crafted in heavy gauge brass for maximum strength to provide exceptional support and eliminate flexing. Standard sizes are 25mm/1"
and 38mm/1 ½" but smaller and larger diameters can be custom specified.

Subject to finish, continuous lengths can be supplied up to 5m/15', but for safe transportation, they are usually shipped in 2m/6'6" lengths and supplied with threaded joiners for assembly on site.

Lighting

Our picture lights can be specified for wall or rail mounting. Our Articulated Light is fully adjustable for angle and projection and the shade can also be rotated to change the direction of the light and minimise scatter.

Our recommended light source is high CRI LED but if preferred, incandescent bulbs can also be selected.

Hooks

Our 'S' hooks are designed for maximum strength and allow your artworks to be easily unhooked and moved.

For our 25mm/1" rail, we also offer a sliding hook which cannot be unhooked but slides along the rail to adjust for different width paintings.

We also offer a range of link hooks and frame brackets to help with attaching the chain.
