Robust wall rail system for pictures
The Click Rail Pro (9.5 mm x 37.5 mm) hanging system is the professional, heavy-duty version of the Click Rail. The rail is quick and easy to install thanks to the Click&Connect clips (fasteners/wall clips to attach your hanging rails to your walls ; you require 3 per metre), and can be mounted on the wall, flush against the cornice as in the image above.
If you have no cornice between wall and ceiling, using the Click Rail Pro rail will allow us to get as close as possible to your ceiling. The length from the top of the Click Rail Pro to the centre of the click and connect wall fastener is 26mm. If you compare this to the length from the top of the Click Rail to the centre of the click and connect wall fastener which is 13mm and you will understand that it is these extra 13mm that allow us to install the wider Click Rail Pro rail closer to the ceiling.
Please bear in mind that there will always be a slight gap (2-3mm) between ceiling and rail because ceilings are not 100% level (flush). If the ceiling is not well installed there can even be a 10mm gap. We can overcome this is by squirting a general-purpose gap filler (eg. No More Gaps) between ceiling and top of hanging rail. This will allow the rail to seem like a cornice.
Alternatively we can mount the Click Rail Pro in such a way that the sliders for the hanging wire are hidden behind the rail.
