  • Hanging Metal Panels


    Hi All,
    We are doing a custom job for a resturant and need to hang 5 panels which will overlap each other by about 1'. It's more of an artistic piece then functional. I attached a .pdf 2D drawing. I am having a dilemma on deciding the gauge ( much weight>). of cold rolled I want to use as they will be sprayed with automotive paint.

    The plan was to mount them to a 1" x 1/2" sub-frame because they need to remain as low-profile as possible. I would put an "L" bend at the top of each to rest on one of the crossbars in the sub-frame. Any idea on this would be appreciated.

    I would just tack to the edge of the 1 x 1/2 frame. Fast and simple but I might not be seeing all of your issues you might have.
