The hanging system is two aluminum pieces, an angled bar that is attached to the mirror’s back and a receiving bar that is attached to the wall. The two angles interlock and prevent the object from falling off the wall.
One part of the hanger is attached to the mirror but **you will have to attach the adjoining piece to your hanging surface (wall, etc.). Screws and anchors are not included with the mirror, as different surfaces require different screws.**
The metal meant for mounting on your hanging surface is attached with blue tape.
For large mirrors, please let your installer know that they will have to drill the metal and provide screws for mounting the piece.
When installing, the best method for hanging will be up to your installer. We recommend all pieces over 40lbs use mechanical support, such as L Angle* in addition to the aluminum French cleat already attached to the mirror.
The most important thing is that you make sure the metal cleat is level before you screw it into the wall. Past that, the hanging process requires you to match the metal brackets and check the mirror for stability.
Here is a youtube video that shows a French cleat installation
*L-Angle is a structure that provides mechanical support for your mirror. Securing a bottom & top channel to your mirror is recommended for all mirrors.
L-Angle installs like the French cleat. Simply fabricate the metal hanger with holes, screw into the hanging surface (and into a stud) and let the bottom and top of mirror rest on the channel.
Typically installers make a mark after hanging the French cleat, noting the bottom of the mirror. Using this mark to align, they install the l-angle after installing the french cleat.
Always defer to your installing professionals judgement when hanging your mirror. If you have any questions, drop me a line via email and I can assist with any installation questions you may have.
