STAS picture hanging systems in one overview

Do you read too much information to make the right choice? Although STAS is very easy to install, it can be difficult to choose from everything we offer. STAS is there to help you make the right purchase decision! Compare the lengths, colors, mounting possibilities, weight capacities and sometimes very important: the price of our STAS systems. Compare our products with the help of the various specifications in this overview and determine what fits best in your home or workspace.

We offer many different styles of rails that take different weights. 

Take a look at the comparison table below, many of the rails come in 1.5 metre or 2 metre lengths that you can cut at home with a hacksaw and join easily. 

Useful videos on our more popular rail choices: STAS minirail STAS cliprail pro - STAS j-rail.

We supply most rails with an installation kit so all plugs and screws provided plus a joiner and end caps (may differ on certain rails)

You can then customise what STAS Hooks and Cords options you require.

Majority of the cords come in set lengths of 1.5, 2, 2.5 & 3 metre lengths in clear plastic (Perlon cords) or metal (Steel cords) and hooks that take weights of up to 4kg smartspring or 15kg zipper hook.

We recommend 2 hooks and cords per frame on larger than a3 pieces, you can hang multiple pictures on the same cord one below the other if you wish, you just need to purchase extra hooks.
