Today we will discuss how to properly suspend art from the ceiling. This is a common installation for us and there are a variety of items that we can suspend; art, sculpture, floating chairs or just about anything else you can imagine. The number one thing we need to consider when it comes to this type of installation is the weight of the items in question. That is why before we get started we always make sure to know the weight of the items and the material construction of the ceiling itself. That way we can determine the best hardware to use for your project.
A very important rule to remember is, if the piece that you are rigging from the ceiling is over 20 pounds in weight, we will need to find a crossbeam or structural element (like a stud) in the ceiling to ensure safety. Also, when hanging from the ceiling it’s important to have at least two people working on the project because safety is always first.
