Proper Steps to Ensure Safety and Security for Your Fine Art Installation

When it comes to fine art installation, many steps can be taken to reduce the risk of damage to your piece during its relocation. If you want to ensure the preservation and safety of your pieces, proper measures need to be taken. 

Let’s take a look at what elements need to be considered for your fine art installation to ensure the safety and security of your piece. 

Determine Proper Tools and Equipment for Your Fine Art Installation

When it comes to installing your piece, it may be tempting to think about executing this task in the easiest possible way. However, taking shortcuts may be detrimental to your art. 

To ensure your art is installed safely and securely, you must have the proper tools and equipment. This could mean using rigging or cranes to lift heavier pieces or working with scaffolding or lifts to reach your desired location. The best way to achieve the use of proper tools and equipment is by hiring the right team to get the job done. 

Find the Right Location for Your Piece

When it comes to fine art installation, you’ll want to find the perfect setting for your piece. This is important not only in terms of design but for the protection of your piece and the safety of others. Determine if your artwork needs a special mount, such as earthquake-proofing or UV protection. If your art is living outdoors, you may also want to consider weatherproofing your piece. 

If you are attempting to install your fine art by yourself, you may be ruling out displaying your art at greater heights. When you partner with the Art Work FAS Team, we help you achieve success in installing your piece at your desired location, regardless of its height. We have experience working on stairwells and incorporating the appropriate equipment for challenges associated with this task.
