Slatwall Panels For Shopfitting

What Is Slatwall?

Slatwall, also called Slotwall, is a material that is most commonly used in the shopfitting field for display fixtures and wall coverings. The building material typically comes in the form of 4ft by 8ft panels, which have horizontal grooves designed for fixing various merchandising accessories. Slatwall panels are most often made from MDF (medium-density fiberboard), and they have a laminated or melamine paper finish. The horizontal grooves are machined into the finished MDF panels, and the panels are fitted with inserts or painted. The inserts are typically made from plastic or aluminium.

Slatwall panels are generally installed over existing finished wall material or over drywall. They can also be installed onto bare wall stud directly as long as doing so is not in violation of the building code. It’s good practice to use at least 24 screws to secure each panel to the wall, and you should ensure those screws are evenly spaced.
