Velociraptor hanging system

SVG: backside

If a painted board or inlaid plank is thick enough (over 12 mm) then the Fully-Automatic Hanging System (FAHS) with Paintgnome Technology (PT) can be applied.
This system is called Velociraptor™ in short and makes fastening to a wall fast and easy.

The backside has recesses for a metal ⋀-wedge and in the corners for the feet, with the following advantages:
  • The piece can be hanged to a wall on the spot with a nail or screw, and
  • an (often expensive) picture frame is not immediateley or not at all necessary, and
  • the feet (self-adhesive bumpers) are sticking out thereby avoiding contact between painting and wall.
In the center the logo might be carved; that is the paraph (AR).
This logo might look in two seperate ways:
  • Simple: the paraph is carved directly, or
  • Inverse: material around the paraph is carved.
If the plank originates from a sheet of plywood then numbering is included.
The format is like: sheet-number in resp. greek letters and roman figures. For example:
  • α III sheet Alpha, number 3 (first sheet, third plank), or
  • β XIII sheet Beta, number 13 (second sheet, thirteent plank).
  • γ IV sheet Gamma, number 4 (third sheet, fourth plank).

Practical example
The backside in progress shows the recesses for hanging, feet and paraph.
The recesses are being undercoated with white paint and the surface in contrasting gray.

Exceptionally even old-greek sayings have been carved. These texts were written to the temple of Apollo in Delphi. It concerns ancient wisdom or old knowledge possibly read by millions of people:

  • gnosti saitón; know thyself, and
  • méden agan; nothing in excess.

The third text told people to sacrifice to Apollo.
The remains of the temple still exist today but meanwhile Apollo has died also.

Please note: The explanation is from Herr Prof. Dr. Zeichstrahl.
