Acquiring the best possible retail display fixtures for your store can often be challenging. You want high-quality displays that are professional and versatile to showcase a variety of products that catch your customer’s eye. 

Slatwall has proven to be a reliable, affordable solution that is functional, elegant, and cost-effective. With many different slatwall colors available, you’ll be sure to find one that perfectly fits your retail space. The nice thing about slatwall panels is retailers have the option to display them along the perimeter of your store, or within your gondola shelving units.

What is Slatwall?

A slatwall panel is made from medium-density fiberboard and contains horizontal grooves that are 3 inches on-center. In general, slatwall panels consist of a melamine or laminate finish. The most common size is 4 ft. x 8 ft. and can weigh up to 85 pounds per panel. The only setup required with slatwall is the placement of hooks or displays inserted into the slots to display merchandise. It’s worth noting that if you are attaching slatwall panels to a wall, they must be attached to the wall with screws.

How Much Does Slatwall Cost?

The price of a slatwall is both affordable and cost-effective. The cost is dependent on the color, pattern, material, and tyle of the slatwall. For specific pricing information, feel free to contact us
