IMPORTANT NOTE: Aluminum rails are offered in lengths of 4, 6, or 8 feet, with custom sizes available upon request. For installation, rail/track systems must be securely mounted to a solid structure such as wall studs or blocking. The overall durability and capacity of the assembly are contingent upon the secure attachment of the anchors to the wall. The total weight the display can support is determined by both the strength of the individual anchors and the number of mounting points used.
