Plaques can be hung on a wall – interior or exterior – just like a picture frame. Drilling holes in our plaques using a masonry bit is straightforward. Always drill from the back, taking care not to go through to the front. Add plugs and screws then attach a strong multithreaded wire to span the screws at the back of the plaque, twisting the wire to avoid it slipping.
Some plaques have two predrilled holes in the top that may need clearing out a little. In these examples, clean out with a round file or a masonry bit from the front.
Alternatively, plaques can be embedded into a wall. There are some very good adhesives available, although you must test them first. Larger plaques may need brackets as well.
The sundials work on a south facing wall but they are not totally accurate. The brass stick that we supply is called a gnomen and when this is in place, you need to line it up at midday.
