How to Float Your MetalPrint in Seconds with our Top Two Hanging Options
Updated: Aug 23
The nature of MetalPrints is that they are beautifully simple, showcasing a modern elemental style. Starting with a .045" thick sheet of aluminum, their minimalist design spotlights the thin, exposed edge when floated from the wall. Our default Float Mount Hanger and aluminum Inset Frame are the two most popular ways to create this floating effect. Scroll on to see just how easy it is to install your MetalPrint with these two hanging options.
Float Mount Hanger
Our Float Mount Hanger is the default hanging option for MetalPrints, and for good reason! Attached to the back of the print, it's lightweight and floats the print 1/2" off the wall when hung. A sawtooth hanger makes it quick and easy to mount your MetalPrint with no need for a frame. Float Mount Hangers are available on MetalPrints from 4x4" to 24x36".
Aluminum Inset Frames are a great alternative to our Float Mount Hangers. Inset Frames are recessed from the edges of the print, so the print appears to float away from the wall when hung. Inset Frames come in your choice of 3/4" or 1-1/4" depth, and a French Cleat or Wire Hanger. While 3/4" Insets are silver, 1-1/4" Insets are offered in silver or black. Available for sizes 8x8" to 48x96".
An additional Security T-Screw is available for Inset Frames with French Cleat, which provides extra safeguarding for your MetalPrint. Acting as a special key, the T-Screw locks your Inset Frame to the wall - perfect for commercial displays in public locations like hospitals, restaurants, galleries, and more.
