Slatwall panels may be affixed over existing walls: drywall
or wall paneling. They can also be affixed directly to the studs
in a new construction area.
If the slatwall needs to be cut to size - cut the panels
face down with a circular saw. Use a sharp blade with at least
Prior to installing the slatwall, look on the backside of
each panel to find the directional sticker. When applying the
panel to the wall, the directional sticker on the back should
be positioned on the lower left hand side.
The additional panels that are applied to the wall need to
follow suit; the directional sticker should always be positioned
on the lower left hand side.
By having the directional sticker in the same place every
time the panel is installed will ensure the panel grooves line
up correctly creating a seamless look.
We recommend at least 25 screws per slatwall panel. The type
of installation screws that are used during the installation
process depends on the type of slatwall that you have purchased.
If your slatwall panels have aluminum channels, first drill
a pilot hole through the extrusion.
Screw the installation screws through the grooves of the
slatwall to the studs of the wall.
For a more permanent installation use a panel adhesive applied
to the back of the panel.
