I've got four large pieces of Sundelea board that will go up in an art room. The current problem is that due to the height, the teacher can't change the display and obviously being Art they want it to be changed regularly. I risk being called upon to have to put up displays...and I don't want to!

So my idea is to somehow hang the board on a mounting rail and then secure with a wing nut. I then only have to lift the board down and rehang it after the teacher fills it up.

Anyone tried this before? I can't quite think of a solution though. I'm thinking some sort of long DIN rail across the wall - like you would with a wall cabinet - but then what would I attach to the board side as the hook? Then i'd just anchor the lower corners with a wing nut to prevent it being lifted off the rail accidentally.

How does that sound?

Does the art teacher not know how to use step ladders?
I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people.... I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort it self out.

Indeed, what's the difference between you doing it or them doing it? Other than common sense and a few grand extra a year, not a lot....

Before I painted an Infant classroom a few years ago, there was a Sundela board that was framed up and had a couple of hooks mounted in the top of the frame. This then hooked into two eyelets mounted on the wall. I did remove the frame and hooks etc and just screwed it into the wall though, as it was at normal height anyway so was pretty pointless.

Changing displays for idle CO's is not in your JD. I am asked to supply the ladders required and asked to open the various notice boards for the other members of the support staff who have had it added to their JD's as part of the down sizing of admin workload for CO's from about 7/8 years ago.
Tell them no! Just put up the boards which is your job. Do it once and it is your job forever.

Think French Cleat.

One angled length of baton on the wall, one angled baton on the board so the surfaces match.

Put in as many as necessary to support the board.

Supply each class that has display boards where a height issue is present with good sturdy step ladders, not that they will use them as its easier to get a chair from nearby than walk and fetch the step ladder from its home resting place. [Shock.png]

Get it... like it. Many thanks this may be the way to go. As for the whole JD debate - that's an axe to grind for another day. Once i've written it!!!!

French cleat seems a good idea , but remember what can be lifted on can also be lifted off. If I were doing this kind of joint , I would also make sure it could not be lifted off by little and not so little hands.
