1.   D-Rings (included but not fully secure by themselves) Ohio and CT aluminum frames are basically the same except Ohio only has a plastic tray option and the CT frame has an aluminum tray option.    Both come with D-rings (photo below) which are not a sufficient mounting for dry erase usage.   If you use the D-rings you need to add double backed tape, Velcro, adhesive or item 2 and 3 below to make it very secure.    A board just hanging by the d-rings without additional security will be able to be knocked off and harm some ones foot.  Please have a discussion with maintenance on how you will mount the boards.
or look at the EZ-hang if a secure built in hidden method is required.     Evan a Small 18" x 24"  I would not rely on just D-Rings but add a lot of Velcro.   On larger than 18x24 I would go to  2) screws or 3) angle brackets.

 

2.    Self Drilling Screws can be used and since the Ohio Aluminum frame is 1/2" screws can be drilled right thru the frame and not even touch the wall. see picture below.   This is a very popular option and is very secure and fast

3. Our L-Bracket shown below are mounted to wall and then screwed into the side of the frame.
They are nice and secure and are almost invisible Especially is used on the top and bottom rathner than the sides.    

 

4.  If invisible mounting is critical to your look then look at our aluminum EZ-Hang
