Aluminium Subframe

Aluminum Subframe

The aluminum subframe comes pre-fixed on the back of your Wall Art if you choose this option. With about 1 cm between the picture and the wall, it gives the appearance of floating in the air. Please, keep in mind that the aluminum subframe cannot be removed subsequently without damaging the product.

Available for: Metal print, Brushed Metal Print, Acrylic, GalleryPrint, PVC Foam Board, Multipart Wall Art

Assembly instructions

Materials required:

  • Your Wall Art with the subframe installed
  • A pencil
  • A level (optional, but useful)
  • A tape measure
  • Two nails or screws (consider the weight of the wall art)
  • A hammer or screwdriver, according to your chosen fastener

With the aluminum subframe you can quickly and easily attach your Wall Art to the wall. Depending on the type of wall, you only need two nails or screws to hang the rail. Eyelets or similar fastening aids are unnecessary.

  1. First, decide on placement and measure the distance between the two points on the aluminum subframe where your screws or nails will go. Also measure the distance from the top of the art to these points.
  2. Using the center point you’ve decided on, measure and mark the two spots where the screws or nails will go into the wall. Check with a level to see if the marks are even.
  3. Then, carefully hammer the nails or screw in the screws at the spots you marked. Leave a small portion protruding from the wall to hang the subframe on. Do not yet make them tight against the wall as you may need to adjust the protruding length to accommodate the depth of your subframe.
  4. Carefully position the Wall Art so the nails or screws align with the holes on the aluminum subframe. Lower it slowly onto the nails or screws.
