Six museum gallery art racks available to fit user needs

The art racks include options that are carriage-mounted, ceiling-supported, floor-supported, lateral, modular pull-out, and wall-mounted. All provide users with an efficient way for storing and displaying framed canvas paintings and prints. Any of the systems can also be installed on top of existing floors or planned into new construction.

Wall-mounted museum gallery art racks are great at providing storage accommodation for works of a larger size. Notable features for this option include:

  • Virtually unlimited size; screen assemblies as big as 10′ x 65’ have been produced
  • Configurations featured with the punched screen are available in 1” increments and 6″ increments in woven wire

Posts require anchoring to the floor to prevent frame movement, and the rails are anchored on top of the floor for guidance. Units are also accepting of additional museum gallery art racks when needing increased storage capacity to accommodate growing collections. System features and benefits include:

  • Maximum screen size 9’ high by 10’ long by 7′ wide; no maximum to overall system length
