Q. What materials are used to produce your slatwall panels?

  • We only buy the best slatwall materials to produce your slatwall. Our slatwall panels are manufactured using 48lb. density 150lbs. per square inch internal bond Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF). This type of MDF board is the highest rated MDF board on the market. Our slatwall, when properly installed, is guaranteed to not bend, bow or break when in use.

Q. What types of slatwall panels do you have?

  • Paint Grade Slatwall – Paint Grade slatwall is slatwall in its raw Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) wood form. This type of finish gives you an unfinished wood look. It can be left “as is”or you can prime and paint to any color you choose.
  • Melamine Slatwall – Melamine slatwall is slatwall that is coated with a paper product over the MDF board to provide a solid color or a wood grain appearance. We offer eight melamine slatwall colors for you to choose from: White, Almond, Fog Grey, Lt. Grey, Brushed Aluminum, Cherry, Lt. Oak, and Hardrock Maple.
  • High Pressure Laminate Slatwall – High pressure laminate slatwall, also known as HPL slatwall is recommended when you need a specific color and more durability than a melamine finish. We have over 300 standard laminate color options direct from Wilsonart® and Formica ® for you to choose from. Click here and scroll down on the next page to view our laminate slatwall colors.

Q. What are the slatwall panel dimensions?

  • Our two standard slatwall panel sizes: 4’h x 8’w (horizontal cut) and 8’h x 4’w (vertical cut). We also offer 5’h x 8’w and 4’h x 10’w. Both sizes are available upon request. Regardless of the slatwall panel size, all slatwall panels are ¾” thick. Slatwall is also known as slotwall, slat board, slat wall, slat board panel and slot board panels.

Q. What slatwall groove spacing options do you have available?

  • Our standard slatwall groove spacing options are: 3? On Center or 6? On Center. We also offer: 4? On Center. The “On Center” refers to the amount of distance between each slatwall groove.

Q. What is the thickness of your slatwall panels?

  • Our slatwall panels are 3/4″ thick.

Q. How much do the slatwall panels weigh?

  • Each standard 4’h x 8’w or 8’w x 4’h panel without metal extrusions weighs approximately 90lbs. When the standard size slatwall panels have metal extrusions inside the grooves, they weigh approximately 100lbs. per sheet.

Q. Why should I add aluminum / metal extrusions to my slatwall?

  • Adding aluminum extrusions or aluminum channels to your slatwall panels increases the supportability by 75% vs. slatwall without aluminum channels inside the grooves. By maximizing your slatwall supportability, it enables you to hang heavier items off of your slatwall without worrying about bowing or breaking the slatwall.

Q. Why should I add PVC tape to my slatwall?

  • Slatwall PVC tape helps to add color to your slatwall panels by covering up the unfinished wood look of the slatwall grooves. The PVC tape doesn’t add any support to your slatwall, but it can increase the visual appeal to your merchandising area.
  • Each PVC tape roll comes in 130′ lengths. One roll will cover one slatwall panel.
  • Stock PVC tape colors are: white, almond, black, blue, red, yellow and green

Q. How much weight can my slatwall hold?

  • On average, a typical 8″ slatwall hook can hold up to 55-60lbs. when used with slatwall that has metal channels inside the grooves. If the slatwall doesn’t have aluminum channels inside the grooves, then a typical 8″ slatwall hook can hold up to 35-40lbs. When you’re displaying shelves or hangrail bars from your slatwall, you need to add a support system (slatwall shelf bracket or slatwall hangrail bracket) every 12 inches going across the slatwall.
  • In general, it’s better to put the weight as close to the slatwall panel as possible.
