In our last video lesson, Attaching French Cleats, we gave you some instructions for displaying glass panel artwork with a hanging system we particularly like. French cleats are discreet and sturdy, and give your art the appearance of floating in front of a wall. But hanging your artwork with a French cleat is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. There are different sizes of French cleats and considerations should be made based on the surface area and weight of your artwork.
We’ve done the calculations for you. Once you’ve decided that a French cleat is the best hanging system for your piece of glass panel artwork, take a look at this easy-to-use chart to determine which French cleat you should order.
