Today we will discuss how to properly suspended art installations from the ceiling. This is a common installation for us on a regular basis. There are a variety of ways you can suspend art, sculpture, floating chairs or anything you can dream up. The number one thing when it comes to this type of installation is the material and hardware. The hardware you use in the ceiling will depend on the weight. So before you get started always make sure you know the weight of your product that will be suspended from the ceiling. A very important rule to remember is if the piece that you are rigging from the ceiling is over 20 pounds in weight you will need to find a crossbeam or some type a stud in the ceiling to assure safety and longevity. When hanging from the ceiling it’s important to have two people on the project, safety is always first.
