Gallery Wall Layout Calculator

Step 1. Overall wall setup

  • input the height of your chosen horizontal alignment (mid-line, top or lower edges), width of wall (or section of wall) and number of work positions
  • use decimal numbers, e.g. mm or inches (up to 2 decimal places)

Type aligment height for works in decimal numbers e.g. mm or inches to 2 decimal places

This field is required

Type total width of wall or wall section

This field is required

Type number of work positions on wall/section

This field is required

Step 2. Horizontal spacing

  • input widths of all works, more than one work is required
  • the sum of all work widths can be entered into a single cell as a shortcut

Type width of work 1

This field is required

Type width of work 2

This field is required

Type width of work 3

This field is required

Type width of work 4

This field is required

Type width of work 5

This field is required

Type width of work 6

This field is required

Type width of work 7

This field is required

Type width of work 8

This field is required

Type width of work 9

This field is required

Type total width of all other works if >9

This field is required
  • calculations show options for symmetrical spacings: i) all even; ii) first/end spaces with a set even inter-work distance; or iii) inter-work spaces with set even first/end distance
measure result
total width of works
space available between works
i) even space between all works (including ends)

Step 3. Individual work calculations

  • input details of an individual work: horizontal space to previous work/edge, width, height and drop to fastener(s)
  • drop is to center of taught frame wire. For two d-rings drop is to top of rings; and add d-ring inside frame adjustment
  • read out table results and affix fasteners

Type width of work

This field is required

Type the height of work

This field is required

Type horizontal distance to previous work or wall edge

This field is required

Type work drop to fastener

This field is required

Type inside d-ring adjustment for work if 2 fasteners used

This field is required
  • A. mid-line aligned
    measure result
    vertical height of work's fastener
    horizontals:
    previous work/edge to centre
    if two fasteners:
    previous work/edge to 1st fastener
    distance from 1st to 2nd fastener
  • B. top edges aligned
    measure result
    vertical height of work's fastener
    horizontals:
    previous work/edge to centre
    if two fasteners:
    previous work/edge to 1st fastener
    distance from 1st to 2nd fastener
  • C. lower edges aligned
    measure result
    vertical height of work's fastener
    horizontals
    previous work/edge to centre
    if two fasteners:
    previous work/edge to 1st fastener
    distance from 1st to 2nd fastener

Scratch pad calculator

  • for on the fly calculations and conversions use mouse or tap buttons then tap = button
  • or calculations can be entered directly into the answer field using a keyboard then tap = button

Help and measuring notes template

  • help information and a notes template pdf illustrate measurements used. The pdf can be downloaded and used as a background in your notes app (eg. GoodNotes© etc). You can then scribble measurements alongside the HangCalc app.

Minimalist version

  • slim version with less text for when you get the hang of it
