What is Slatwall?

Slatwall is similar to gridwall, meaning it is a panel that you can connect accessories to in order to hold stock. They are available on a special freestanding base that can enhance the look of your shop or can be directly fit into the walls. Slatwall has horizontal grooves onto which the accessories are attached; this is the main difference between gridwall and slatwall. 

Slatwall covers the entire wall, so it gives the look of a permanent feature of the building; it also looks plain so that it doesn’t divert the attention of your customers from the products. Slatwall also has numerous accessories like rails, hooks, shelf brackets, football holders, and many more.

 Benefits of using Slatwall

  • Strong enough to hold oversized items
