There are several ways to hang posters - the choice will depend on the size and weight of the poster and the type of ceiling. For smaller lightweight posters POS-type fittings are a perfect low-cost answer. The range of POS hanging systems includes adhesive ceiling buttons and double-ended hooks which latch onto our poster bars. Wire POS hooks can also be supplied in a style that is easily stretched to the required length (Jet Set wires).
For large posters, heavy maps, and drop banners the more substantial screw anchors and wire rope hooks offer a more substantial alternative.
Our suspension kits are also valuable as picture hanging hardware - when pictures need to be suspended on wires from either the ceiling or the wall.
Sign supplies for suspending signs include wire rope or cables; wipe rope accessories such as wire rope hooks and various ceiling fittings. These can be anchors which screw to the ceiling, magnetic wire end fixings and suspended ceiling fixings.
Some kits are intended specifically for hanging a rigid sign panel - which could be made out of acrylic, foam PVC, or aluminum composite sheet.
Unless the hanging signs are really heavy 1.2mm cable with 7x7 construction or a 1.5mm wire display system is perfectly adequate. Each cable and the associated wire fittings will support a weight of 10kg with a considerable margin of safety. These wires look inconspicuous but they are capable of taking a significant load. Galvanised steel wire is generally supplied but the components can equally be used with stainless steel cables. Wire end fixing points are reliably engineered.
