WALL HANGERS: SOME EXAMPLES
This was a solution to an inquiry from a High School in Melbourne.
The problem they were trying to solve was a very common one: artworks and teaching materials were piling up in their classrooms and communal areas. This presents not only an aesthetic burden, it is also a psychological burden, especially for the poor teachers. Children love creating and it’s so important for their development. To feel validated, what they create also needs to be on display. This makes them proud and happy. Quite the opposite was happening, there were stacks of artwork on the teachers’ desks. For some children (and also teachers) this can be overwhelming, especially if they are hypersensitive.
The same disorder was true for the pedagogical material. Teaching materials had been partly pinned and partly tacked to the walls. Some sheets had fallen down and were littering the floor, others had lost their hold on the wall and were partially coming off. In short it was a shambles. This isn’t an unusual case scenario. The inquiries we get, reveal it’s the norm.
According to many studies, both a low-stimulus and a stimulating environment are important for the child’s development. This may sound contradictory, but this is how we human beings work. An ideal classroom is therefore a combination of the two.
We helped this school, as we have helped many others by developing the perfect way to exhibit drawings and paintings as well as pedagogical material. The school is recognised both nationally and internationally for its impressive music program. Former students regularly gain prominent positions in the music industry and in music education. In year eight all students are encouraged to enrol in core music subjects and passionate students can audition for special interest music programs.
Brighton High School was just the process of completing their Performing Arts Centre. It is an acoustically optimised 660m2 live performance venue with an auditorium that can seat up to 400 people. There is a large entrance foyer with many walls that provide the perfect opportunity to showcase students’ artwork.
The Staff were seeking a sleek, simple and efficient way to display the beautiful artworks on these walls and opted for the Artiteq Click Rail Pro picture hanging system. It was installed on all walls in their concert hall’s foyer area. To specifically suit their requirements we cut some rails to short lengths and installed them between the large vertical windows you can see in the photo above.
WALL HANGERS: IN THE WORKSPACE
Once a school’s classrooms, corridors, foyers and entry hall are optimized and showcasing beautiful artworks it sure is time to think about making the school staff’s life easier. Another issue in dire need of a solution is found in the school’s offices: piles of paper works sitting on tables taking up the precious little space admin workers have at their disposal, or the worst case scenario, papers lying scattered on the floor thanks to an window that welcomed the autumn breeze.
Fortunately, Artiteq also has a solution for this dilemma!
In such offices, schools opt for white Info Rails that extend across the entire width of the rooms. The white colour can blend in, or contrasts with the colour of the wall, making this display system as unobtrusive as possible. This provides a more pleasant and relaxing environment for the staff who spend a lot of their daily hours confined by these four walls.
Some schools also choose the Artiteq Info Rail to hang their pupil’s artworks. Installing a hanging system on eyelevel means that the children can hang their own drawings and place their sculptural creations for all to admire in the classroom! The tracks are available in 1 m, 2 m and 3 m lengths. There is also an
array of nifty accessories you can add to the Info Rail such as nametags, display shelves and pencil storage units. Making displaying student’s work fun and
rewarding and reducing the teacher’s workload when they have a lot of proud, eager, happy helpers. Wow, is this a big hit when parents come to the classroom with and admire their children’s artwork at parent teacher meetings!
WALL HANGERS: ARE THEY REALLY THAT GREAT?
After many years of experience in installing art I have concluded that picture hanging systems are the best way to hang artwork in general, and especially in schools and colleges. Allow me to argue my case with six top reasons:
- Optimal Aesthetics
Positioned at the top of your wall a picture hanging system is sleek and unobtrusive. This is exactly what you want in a workplace/school classroom, corridor, foyer or entry hall/ college or university setting.
- One-Off Job
Once you’ve installed your picture hanging system you will never have to drill another hole in your wall.
- Minimal Effort
A picture hanging system lets you hang and rotate your art easily, quickly, and effortlessly. No more paintings leaning against the wall waiting forlornly to be hung up.
- Wall friendly
Your walls will remain pristine and undamaged. You won’t have to drill holes in your walls to hang your art. The picture hanging rails come in different lengths and can be easily cut to fit any space perfectly.
- Fun and Variety
You can easily switch artworks around and experiment with different artwork combinations. It’s fun to change things up!
- Safety and Security
Each component of the Artiteq’s picture hanging system is TÜV certified (a European seal of approval that ensures that the product’s meet quality requirements and are safe).
TIME FOR AN UPGRADE? HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The requirements for wall design in education are constantly changing. Education programs change, subjects change, the number of enrolled students may change as well, etc.
Are your classes full of arty children? Be warned, this may suddenly result in a mountain of beautiful decorations that overwhelms you!
From our and other businesses experience, the best solutions are the Artiteq Click Rail and the Info Rail for displaying drawings and other documents on the wall in an organised manner. Many schools are already using this clever hanging system in their classrooms, communal spaces, offices, assessment/meeting rooms, and corridors. As well as the Info Rail, we also supply schools with Artiteq notice boards, glass boards, whiteboards and bulletin boards.
Our range of cabling systems enable you to hang posters, prints, photos, awards and art, as well as create spectacular exhibitions featuring sculptures, 3D artwork, furniture and instruments.
