Q.      Why should I add aluminium metal inserts to my Slatwall?

Adding aluminium inserts to your Slatwall panels increases the support ability of accessories by 75% as compared to Slatwall without aluminium inserts. By maximizing your Slatwall accessory support ability, enables you to hang heavier items off your Slatwall. All aluminium inserts are supplied in a Mill Finish as standard, but can also be supplied in any RAL colour or woodgrain effect. Colours and woodgrains are available on request.


Q.      Why should I add PVC Inserts to my Slatwall?

Adding PVC inserts to your Slatwall enhances the appearance of your Slatwall by adding colour to your Slatwall grooves. We have a range of nine standard colours to choose from and other colours are available on request.


Q.      Why should I add Corner Trim or panel join trim to my Slatwall?

Corner Trim and/or panel join trim help to add colour to your Slatwall panels by covering up the unfinished wood look of the panels. The trims do not add any support to your Slatwall panel, but they can increase the visual appeal to your merchandising area. We can supply with front and back PVC trims in any of the standard colours or alternatively with aluminium anodised fronts to both corner and panel join trim


Q.      How much weight can my Slatwall hold?

On average, a typical 200mm Slatwall hook can hold up to 29.5-31.5 Kg when used with Slatwall incorporating aluminium inserts in the grooves. Slatwall without aluminium inserts can hold 18.0 – 20.0 Kg. Generally, it is better to put the weight as close to the Slatwall panel as possible.
