We have a hanging system on the outside of the Gallery. The height for the banner should be 770mm and no longer than 2800mm.
The length can be shorter and we can accommodate two 2800mm long next to each other of that is of interest. Please keep to the 770mm height as they become very difficult to fix otherwise and make sure the banner is made with eyelets and reinforced edges.
