Frequently Asked Questions
How to measure spacing of existing wall studs:
Beginning from left to right, measure from the corner to the center of the first wall stud. Continue measuring from the left corner to additional wall stud, to the right corner. This total measurement should equal the total side width. Repeat for rear going left to right. Total should equal overall rear width.

Eyelets vs. grommets: what is the difference?
If there are wall studs in place, eyelets are easier and require no measuring. If grommets are preferred, measuring is required.
How do I choose the right hanging method?
From inside your elevator cab determine if you have:
- Wall studs pre-installed
- Raised panels with open space at top to hook over
- Suspended ceiling with open space at edge to hook over. (See our Hardware products.)
Which is more durable: canvas or vinyl?
