Picture Hanging Services provides a professional service for expert layout and hanging of all artworks – corporate and residential.

The owner,
Denzil Deacon, has been operating PHS as a small personalised business for the past 21 years. Before starting PHS, he co-owned a framing business which focused on high quality conservation framing. There were no specialised picture hanging services available at the time so the company was constantly being called upon to help with the hanging of artwork for their clients, which disrupted production. Denzil started PHS after he sold up his framing interests in 1989.

Since then, PHS has been privileged to work in some of the most beautiful areas, hotels, guest houses and homes in the world. Most of our work is obviously centred around our home base in Cape Town but we do operate both
nationally and internationally. Some of our national “away” projects include the 5 star Westcliff Hotel in Johannesburg, the beautiful RiverBend Country Lodge near Addo, the prestigious Leopard Creek Golf Estate at Malelane in Mpumalanga, The Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga and the Victoria Falls Hotel in Zimbabwe.

Quite a few of these projects have featured in
local décor and interior design magazines and TV programmes in the past.

, Picture Hanging Services handled the layout and hanging of artwork during revamping of the beautiful Hotel d’Angleterre in Geneva, Switzerland and the Summer Lodge Country Hotel in Dorset, UK. We also handled a large exhibition in New York City, a riverboat in France and several hotel projects in London. Closer to home, we hung the artwork, mirrors and objects d’art at the Bushmanskloof Country Lodge in the Cederberg, the Lanzerac Hotel in Stellenbosch and the Mount Nelson, Arabella Sheraton and Twelve Apostles Hotels in Cape Town. We have also done a great deal of work on other local hotels, wine farms and golf estates. On a daily basis, we hang artwork for picture framers, architects, decorators, galleries and, of course, local businesses and private clients.

We have been faced with some very special (and sometimes tricky) situations and have acquired some expertise in dealing with damp, ventilation, lighting and security concerns. We supply and install gallery hanging systems, make up our own customised hangings for special situations, and we even manufacture our own platehangers. Our work has brought us into contact with the crème de la crème of the art world and we consider ourselves privileged to have worked with some of the best artists, decorators, picture framers, art dealers and architects in the country. We have been well positioned to learn a few pointers from many of them.

Picture Hanging Servicesis still small and efficient. Private clients and domestic picture hanging remains the core of our business and no job is considered too big or too small. The service is highly personalised and each job is treated individually. Denzil still does much of the work himself, assisted by his son Brett and also Steyn and Mike. Brett has been fully involved in PHS for some time and is well positioned & fully committed to take the business forward in future. The business normally operates 5 days per week but we often find ourselves working after normal office hours and on weekends in order to avoid disrupting business operations or to fit in with our clients’ personal schedules. Because picture hanging is such a personal issue, we involve our clients in everything we do, particularly the initial layout. We don’t hang their artwork for them. We hang it with them.
