H Track is our most popular track system for hanging artworks
and is designed to be applied to existing walls.
Versatile, Strong and Slim
When fixed at a high level, the H Track blends effortlessly with the ceiling junction or mouldings and provides a stable point from which to hang artworks, using a choice of transparent cord, stainless steel cable or stainless steel rod. The artworks can then be hung at any height and any point along the track. Because this track is slim, discreet and wonderfully strong, it is suitable for use in almost any setting from museums and galleries to large and small offices, private residences to coffee houses and even historic palaces.
Dimensions and Finish
H Track is an anodised aluminium extrusion that is available in either soft silver finish or white and comes in lengths of 2.5 m. The track is 25mm high x 12mm wide. It comes pre-drilled and is easy to cut to length on site.
Useful Tips and Guidelines
We recommend that the track runs continuously along the the wall including, above any doors or window openings. Even though this part of the track may never be used, it maintains a clean visual line that blends with the building, whereas individual sections of track will look fragmented and draw your attention.
The track comes pre-drilled at 300mm intervals which will suit the majority of installations. If you wish to hang seriously heavy artworks (in excess of 150 kg), then we recommend drilling more frequent fixing points at every 150mm or even 100mm. The track can then sustain loads of 500 kg when supported on the stainless steel rods. For fixing your H Track, we recommend #8 (4mm) wood screws.
If you are installing multiple lengths of H Track, we supply simple connecting pins that help you to align the lengths of track for an even finish. These are inserted in the 2mm holes at the end of the track, connecting both lengths. Connecting pins will only be supplied with orders of 2 or more lengths.
There are a choice of accessories that will work with the H Track to provide the look to suit your installation. The accessories are sold in sets that include a pair of hanging lengths, top blocks and fixings. You will need a set per work, and can choose either a barrel for use with our Ryman Hanger, or a hook if your work will be hung with a wire. All accessories can also be purchased separately should you want to hang more than one work per hanging length set. H Track Cover is also available to purchase individually upon request. This is sold in standard lengths of 2.5m.
