Hanging Panels

Postby smallbitz » Fri Jun 26, 2015 6:45 am

I know this has been asked before, but I can't seem to find the answer in the archives. I need another nice way to hang a group of panels (each about 4 1/2" x 16"). I really love HYG, but it gets so cost prohibitive even at wholesale prices. I've never used french cleats - any advice on those would be appreciated; where to purchase and how well they work, or any other manner that would look nice and work well.

I really don't like the idea of mounting the glass onto wood or into picture frames to hang, as I like the look of 'just glass' showing. Thanks in advance!

sandblast back of cleat or rough up,
you do not have to sandblast the glass,
---use DOW CORNING 995 structural silicone from CRL or Amazon,
some people use the GE silicone from Home Depot or Lowes.Watch the expiration date!
Biggest mistake is to use too much 'goo', a little bit goes a long way.

I use those Panelclips too. On smaller pieces, I use 3M VHB (very high bond) tape.

They look like they would work well on opaque panels. Thanks!
