I need some advice installing 54 canvas pics

Hi.
I do lots of stretched canvas pictures but I have never been called upon to install them.
Now all of a sudden I have 54 600x600mm ones to install around a suite of offices.
The fixings have to be invisible and secure., and not using wire because they want them hard against the walls.
Are there any clever tricks that people are using to accomplish this?
Thanks for reading this
Simon.

I've used a batton on the wall with an angle on top, then you have the opposite in the frame.

How you'd attach the batton to the wall is the problem then.

Use a split baton if the frame is heavy

Hi Simon, installed a few of these with security fixings.

Fittings hold the canvas tight and have a key to remove

It might be too late for a split baton, they are already stretched onto frames which are rectangular in section. :roll:

David thanks, I do not really trust the adhesive on those velcro thingys.

Chris those springlocks look about right. I will see if they are available here in NZ.

Thanks for all your help guys.

Simon.

Well here are some pics.
We cut batons, , bradded them into the wall with a compressed air gun. We hung the top frame on it with Vhb tape in between. The weight is completely held up by the baton.
