The Ryman Hanger is our most popular solution for hanging artworks and is used by an international body of galleries, large and small, such as the Tate galleries and MoMA.

Designed primarily to attach artworks tight to the wall with no visible fixings, they are easy to install, enable adjustment, and have a choice of three levels of security:

Each of these are then available in three sizes (small, large or extended) that will handle artworks from the smallest etchings and watercolours right up to large flat backed works weighing up to 150 kg:

  • Small Ryman set works well with lightweight works like etchings and small to medium sized watercolours. It is also useful for artworks where the timber framing is very narrow as the hanger is a mere 11mm wide. (Tested for weights up to 25kg)
  • Large Ryman set works well for the vast majority of medium to large sized artworks. (Tested for weights up to 75kg)
  • Extended Ryman set works well for large heavy works, often those with glazing, and where the additional screw fixing points ensures a robust fixing to the frame. (Tested for weights up to 150kg)

In addition to fixing works discreetly to the wall the Ryman can be used with any of Absolute's track or panel clip hanging systems. Or, when used in conjunction with our storage hooks, artworks can be hung on a wide range of screens and storage facilities.
Choosing your level of security:

Standard: For installations where security is not an issue your artworks can be installed using the Standard Ryman (art hanging plate only). This will provide all of the strength and adjustability of the Ryman without the added cost of security.

Secure: For installations where it is important to inhibit or prevent opportunistic theft we suggest you use the Secure Ryman Hanger Set. These are supplied with Secure Spring Keepers which will prevent anyone from removing the artwork whilst the keepers are in place. It is difficult to remove the keepers without the individual bringing attention to their actions. This level of security is appropriate to the vast majority of artworks on display and is by far our most popular solution.

High Security: For the highest level of security we suggest our Ryman Hanger High Security Set. The High Security Spring Keeper is easily inserted which then 'locks' the artwork in place. The Security Spring Keeper can only be removed by using our Ryman Security Key. Each key is carefully numbered and it's owner listed.
