Are you tired of tripping over the mess in your garage because things are all over the floor? Slatwall is a great product that can help you by getting your items off the floor and on the wall, leveraging the wall space you already have.
Slatwall is actually paneling that you attach to your garage walls, which then allows you to hang everything and anything on the walls. the paneling attaches to either your exposed beams in your walls or applied over your existing drywall. The beauty of this product is that it turns your garage walls into a flexible, modular organizational system and the best part is that slatwall accessories are not permanent. Simply slide standard slatwall accessories (hooks, racks, shelves, cabinets) into the paneling grooves on the wall. If you need to make a change, slide the accessory off the wall and move it elsewhere. You will never have to put another hole in a garage wall again.
Specifically designed for the rugged, moist environment of the garage, slatwall paneling for the garage is different from the particleboard paneling used in many retail stores.
Particleboard is ok for applications like retail stores because the environment is controlled. Always 75 degrees and you never have to deal with moisture. However that is not your garage. Garages are normally not heated and air conditioned and on the rare occasion they are, all your hard work in controlling the temperature is lost the minute you open the garage door. Slatwall for the garage is made from cellular PVC, that is fire retardant, waterproof, bug proof and can hold approximately 50 pounds per hook. Particle-board paneling can’t say any of this. Is is available in multiple colors including a wood-grain option. And when you want to clean it, you just squirt it down with a hose. It’s just that simple.
So the next time you trip over something in the garage, don’t get mad, get slatwall, it’s the 21st century pegboard.
