    Hi All
    I have to hang 1/4" thick 30X40 inch Plexiglass and my clients don't want to drill holes on them.

    I have no idea what my options are....

    Does any of you have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Gyford Hardware offers wire and clamp like fasteners. There is an article in this months Sign and digital graphics magazine about this type of hardware.

    Use the same brackets they use to mount mirrors.

    Gyford Hardware looks like a winner!
    It looks very professional and easy too.

    Thanks for the tip!

    You take the same color or like this which is matt or clear. Cut strips, bend to the thickness you need, polish the edges as shown, attach to wall with anchors an screws with the counter sink you made. Make the top ones if you need them, I just use sides and bottom, with a longer hole so you can slide into place. But you probably do not have the equipment to do this so go to:http://www.standoffsystems.com/catalog/home.php
    and get the side mounts where you use a allen wrench to tighten down the plexi.

    Thanks John!
    That's a great idea to make your own hanging hardware. I wanted to use mirror hanging hardware but 1/4" was too thick for most of them. And ones big enough for 1/4" was ugly stainless steel ones and I was sure my client wouldn't approve of it.

    Thanks FMG!
    They have so many nice looking hardware! I personally liked the Clip Clamp. I would like to have it in my studio. :)
