Storiel Art Gallery Cantilever Picture Racking Gwynedd

AMP Fab were contracted to design the complete bespoke art gallery cantilever picture racking for the newly refurbished Storiel Art Gallery Gwynedd which had some unusual prerequisites.

The cantilever picture racking unit in the attic was designed and manufactured to fit perfectly into the space available whilst not imposing too heavy a load over the attic floor, we utilised load spreader channels to enable this and also designed a cantilever overhang so that the legs did not impede access into other areas of the store.

THE BRIEF

Many of the storage areas in this art gallery were either in the attic area which sloped and split on various planes, and also needed some specialised stone storage in a basement area which had an unusual viewing window set in the wall quite low down, which made for a more technical picture racking design.

The stone storage was especially tricky as we had to measure and manufacture individual sizes of shelf for every alcove as they were all different even from level to level in the height!

THE SOLUTION

The cantilever picture racking unit in the attic was designed and manufactured to fit perfectly into the space available whilst not imposing too heavy a load over the attic floor, we utilised load spreader channels to enable this and also designed a cantilever overhang so that the legs did not impede access into other areas of the store.
