Other mounting options
Split batten fixing
An MDF batten is approximately 9mm and will give the impression of your artwork “floating” from the surface of the wall.
One set of battens is fixed to the back of the MDF.
The second set of battens is screwed to the wall.
The image is then hung by slotting the battens on the back of the MDF into the wall battens.
Subframes are advised for hanging larger mounted prints and Perspex mounts.
A subframe is an aluminium profile attached to the reverse of the mounted material.
This is then hung onto a batten fixed to the wall.
A subframe moulding will give the impression of your artwork “floating” from the wall. The moulding is approximately 20mm wide.
