Determining the right size French cleat for your glass panel artwork

An example of a French cleat hanging system used in a gallery context, Jessica Loughlin's an ever changing constant (white)

French cleat hanging systems create a "floating" effect as with this 2013 Jessica Loughlin piece, an ever changing constant (white).

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.

After your French cleat hanging system is installed and your artwork is on display, show us how it looks by posting on the Bullseye forum or on the Bullseye Facebook page.
