What is Slatwall Shelves?

Slatwall is mobile shelving units made of wood or thick wire mesh. It is a structural material used to create wall coverings or display fixtures. These date back to the 1960s when they were developed as an innovative solution to display goods in a store. They are often made of wood panels that feature horizontal grooves or slats that hold various accessories such as bins, hooks, and shelves. There are many varieties of Slatwall available in the market, such as free-standing or full-wall panels that can be fixed to existing walls. In many cases, these shelving units are reinforced with aluminum inserts that fit into the grooves of the Slatwall. The added aluminum provides strength and support to the structure and, if colored, provides the opportunity to customize the look of the Slatwall.

No brackets or reinforcements of any kind are needed to install them.
