INSTALLATION GUIDE

Aspen 40"x40" - Stephen Wilson Studio

MODULARITY

When designing a display that calls for more than one piece, it can get a little tricky. We're here to help guide you in following the correct way set up your modular arrangement. Before, sizes of pieces and frames made it difficult to match up a cohesive wall. With this system, it is now easy to pick out a coordinating group of sizes to combine and fill large areas of space. 

INSTALLATION

Displaying more than one art piece in your home has never been easier! This modularity system allows for a super easy selection process of various sized pieces. A grouping of 12" x 12" pieces can easily hang next to a 26" x 26" piece as long as 2" are in between!

Here is a measurement guide for how the pieces hang to form groupings. All sizes go together and are completely interchangeable. It is essential to hang the pieces so that a 2" gap is created between each. Whether you're hanging two pieces or thirty, the measurements will always stay the same.  

If you are hanging multiple pieces of various sizes, such as a 26" x 26" piece and five 12" x 12" pieces for instance, always hang the provided wall cleats as if they are all 12" x 12" pieces. This will allow for an easy re-arrangement whenever you want!

CLEAT MEASUREMENTS

On the back of every 12" x 12" piece, a 3" inch wide cleat is pre-attached to the back; ready to be mounted on the wall. The bottom of the wall cleat to the top of the piece measures 2" inches. The horizontal measurement from the sides of the piece to the edge of the wall cleat measure roughly 4.5". And from the bottom of the art piece to the bottom of the cleat measures 10" inches. 

SPACING FOR WALL CLEATS

Wall cleats should be spaced in order to keep a 2" spacing between all the pieces. It does not matter whether you're hanging two pieces or thirty, the measurements will always stay the same. It's important to remember to arrange and install each cleat as if each piece you are hanging is a 12" x 12" size. This will allow you to arrange and re-arrange every size of piece whenever desired, without having to hang more wall cleats. 

 

Here are some examples of completed installations. Once you've installed the cleats, you can easily re-arrange the art on display whenever you want, and taking care of the art and acrylic casing is easy and inexpensive!

ACRYLIC MAINTENANCE

For general cleaning, we suggest the Novus line of acrylic cleaners and restoration products. Use the Novus 1 plastic clean and shine bottle for everyday care in removing prints and dust. Use a micro-fiber towel to prevent scratching acrylics. Nitrile gloves prevent finger prints from forming onto the acrylic cases. We also recommend following the manufacturers instructions for use.
