Arakawa, Beautiful Cable Hanging System for Glass Shelves

Arakawa, Beautiful Cable Hanging System for Glass Shelves

This cable system can be used in any type of museum.  It’s elegant and strong.  Next time I might go for a solid rod style system, which Arakawa may indeed have, as the cable can sway a bit.  Probably want to avoid the cable seem in earthquake prone areas.  On the very positive side, it is very easy to install and feels very secure when finished.  The reps are very helpful and the product comes quickly.  It’s all upside on the practicality front.  One additional downside is the price.  You might be surprised at how much a little piece of stainless steel can cost, but when you consider how long it will last, it’s reasonable.FullSizeRender 19 FullSizeRender 10 FullSizeRender 7
