Always fantastic work! Very happy with Julian and the team. Geelong Cats have had multiple installations at the Stadium. The hanging systems are simple, professional, and a great way to help us showcase our history - from best and fairest portraits, team photos and other historic framed pieces.

“It’s been great working with Picture Rail Systems to upgrade the picture hanging and lighting system in our Exhibition Space. Our Exhibition Space provides a rare opportunity for women artists to exhibit, promote and sell their work. We wanted to make sure that the Space is flexible, that art work is secure and that Exhibitions can be well presented with a minimum of fuss. Julian listened to our needs and provided practical solutions to upgrade the hanging and lighting systems within our budget! No mean feat in a heritage-listed building!”

"Picture Rail Systems has provided a range of art supply and picture hanging systems for our head office as well as multiple offices throughout Victoria for many years. Both the picture hanging services and picture hanging products have always been of an extremely high quality. The art hanging systems, in particular, have greatly reduced our repairs and maintenance and have ensured that art works and framed posters are kept secure. They allow flexibility and versatility without wall damage and have a very professional streamlined appearance with hidden fixtures."

"It is a pleasure to recommend Picture Rail Systems because of the superb job they did hanging our artworks with their fantastic picture hanging systems in our newly renovated home. We used their excellent Minirail track system and they did the individual hanging as well. Picture Rail Systems were recommended by a close friend so I was confident that their work would be very professional, as it proved to be. What made the experience a joy was their low key but effective expertise in regard to how and what to hang where, how high etc. Furthermore the price for this incredibly good system was realistic."

"We chose to go with Picture Rail Systems as they had the best product to suit our home, we now have the Locator Mini Rail system installed throughout the house and are very happy with the end result. It is very easy to move a painting from one room to another, the system looks great in that you hardly even notice it's there. They have been great to deal with from the first contact and have followed up quickly when we needed to buy extra components."

''I purchased my Locator Classic system online from these guys, they were very helpful with advice over the phone on the choice of product etc and they had it delivered within a few days and I'm in a fairly remote area. When it came to installing it myself I found it easy with the online instructions and a few tips given to me over the phone ... Looks great! ''

Frequently Asked Questions

There are several systems for you to choose from, each product section has a description of each system and its possible applications, consider whether you are using it for private or commercial use, the weight and approximate number of the pieces you will be hanging and the approximate length of the walls.

The Minirail System has a maximum weight capacity of 25kgs per lineal metre  10kgs per nylon cable, 25kgs per steel cable, the hooks have various maximum weight ratings which can be found in the description column on the product's info and pricing pages.

When using two hangers and two hooks for one picture (recommended for stability), you can double the maximum weight capacity i.e 2 x 4kg HM hooks will hold an 8kg picture.

The AVR system is rated at 25kgs per lineal metre on the rails, 10kgs per nylon hanger and 20kgs per stainless steel hanger, compatible hooks and components can be found on the product pages.

We have hung clocks successfully on the our systems before however there are a few things to consider: The centre of gravity on clocks due to depth versus height and the glass adding weight in the front can make the clock lean forward, the best thing to do as all clocks vary so much is to try it and see. Longer clocks (pendulum) will site straighter.
