An Introduction to Rod and Cable Display Systems

Our cable display systems and rod display systems are designed to be as modular as possible to accommodate any installation you have in mind! Install to the ceiling, walls, or floor. Create a vertical display to show off artwork or information. Create an eye-catching shelving system that appears to float in mid-air. The only limitation is your imagination!

Cables are designed to be sleek and stylish, while being very discreet in order to keep attention focused on your display. The 1/16” cables are capable of holding up to 55 lbs (25 kg) per cable and all of our systems come with a cable tensioner to keep everything tightly in place.

Rods are ideal when you need a rigid system, when you are installing horizontally (they work fine vertically too), or when you will have a lot of weight installed in the system. The rods are 1/4” thick, made from solid stainless steel, and are available in lengths of 3′ 3”, 4′ 11”, 6′ 6”, and 9′ 10”.

Why limit yourself to vertical adjustments? Add our Aluminum Track on the top and bottom of your display and make your system infinitely more flexible! The added horizontal mobility provided by the Aluminum Track means that you can easily re-organize an entire display without needing to drill a single hole! If you need flexibility in your display system, the cable hanging systems and rod hanging systems paired with the Aluminum Track make for an unbeatable combination!


We have a huge variety of supports to fit any installation’s needs! We have supports for vertical displays, shelving displays, sloped displays, and pivoting displays for something unique! Most of our supports are available in your choice of aluminum or stainless steel and in several sizes to provide the right fit for your material.

Vertical Supports are used for a standard vertical display where you want to hang your material with a side gripper.

Edge Grip Supports are used for a standard vertical display where you want a standoff appearance without the need to drill holes in your material. They are also especially useful when displaying oddly shaped materials, such as a circular sign or image.

Standoff Supports are used for a standard vertical display where you want the standoff appearance with the ability to easily move and change the materials on display.

Shelf Supports are used for a standard horizontal display, such as shelving. They come in a couple of styles: horizontal support, side shelf support, and below shelf support.

Horizontal Supports are the sibling to our Vertical supports. They grip the material with a side gripper that goes on both sides of the material.

Side Shelf Supports are similar to our horizontal supports except that the material simply rests on the support, instead of being gripped on both sides. These supports can be used with our without a Retaining Screw that tightens the material down onto the Side Shelf Support for an even more secure installation.

Below Shelf Supports are just that – they sit underneath the material. These supports require a hole be drilled in the material to rest on the support, with the cable going through the middle of the support. This contributes even more to the floating appearance of shelving by freeing the corners of the material from any visible hardware.

Keep in mind that most of these support types are available in fixed or pivoting styles, which means that you can find the right style for your needs, no matter what the application might be.

Hanging a Mirror With Standoff Systems

As I’m renovating my bathroom, I’m would like to hang a large (120 cm x 80 cm), frameless mirror above my washbasin with a hanging standoff systems. I also want to install indirect LED lighting and it should also be heated.

I’m planning to do the following:

Buy a plain mirror with a silver back

Make a 110 cm x 70 cm wooden frame on which the mirror will be mounted. The top bar of the frame will have a wedge shape, so I can hang it on a opposing wedge that is mounted to the wall.

Mount the LED strips on the outside of the frame

Stick the heating pads on the back side of the mirror in between the frame.

This way I should have a “floating” mirror that is heated and illuminated.

My only problem is how to mount the wooden frame to the mirror? I’ve found two types of mirror glue but liquid Nails specifically mentions that you should also use a J-channel or a shelf angle, which I really don’t want. Loctite does not mention it specifically, but it also doesn’t say it’s not needed. What do you guys and gals think? Would it be okay to glue the wooden frame directly to the mirror, or would it need additional support to make sure it remains on the wall?

The opposing wedges is called a French cleat. You can attach them with epoxy. Your wood frame should not be securely attached to the mirror because wood moves, a slot the mirror is held in will work.

I suggest something from MBS Standoffs  and for the led strip do some research on what’s good. htm lighting makes good ones for your project

Z Clips Your Panels and Sign Displays

We have three variations of our Z Clips to fit any purpose. ZCP1 has the shortest lift clearance at 3/8” (10 mm) compared to the others with 5/8” (15.5 mm) and 1/2” (12.7 mm), respectively, which makes it slightly easier to remove your sign or panel. ZCP2 is the slimmest of the three, coming in at a mere 3/16” (4.2 mm) compared to the other styles at 1/4” (6.4 mm). ZCP3 is slightly larger than the others and able to hold slightly heavier materials on the same number of clips.

Each style of our Z Clips come in three lengths: Small, 3′ (0.91 m), and 6′ (1.83 m). The Small size varies between 1 1/2” to 2 1/2”, depending on the style. For larger items we suggest using multiple small clips on the item to provide the strongest possible installation.

Installing is as simple as ever. First, mount a small Z Clip to your material. Then, depending on your application, mount another Z Clip to the wall. If you are hanging a single item, we recommend mounting a second small Z Clip to the wall to ensure all hardware is out of site. If you are hanging multiple items in a row, use the 3′ or 6′ lengths to install multiple panels in a straight line easily along part or all of a wall. After you have your Z Clip installed on your material and on the wall, it’s as simple as lowering the material onto the wall until the Z Clip lock into place on each other.

If you will be installing a heavy sign or heavy panels, then we recommend mounting the Z Clip to a stud wherever possible (if installing in drywall) to ensure the strongest foundation possible. Whether you are installing into drywall, concrete, brick, or anything else, we recommend using our #8 Anchors for a perfect fit.

What are you waiting for? Pick up your own Z Clip and make your life easier! If you have more questions, feel free to give us a call at 813-938-6025 or send us an email at MBS Standoffs and we’ll be more than happy to help.

Z-CLIPS Panel are fast, easy and cost effective for locking in place any kind of wall panel, acoustical panel, partition, cabinet, signage, artwork for a gallery.
