What is Slatwall?

Shop fittings and displays are one of the most important things to consider when fitting out a retail or commercial space. While people may view it as an afterthought or a straightforward process, getting the right shelving and display can be an art-form.

Not only are there a multitude of options out there, there’s a recognized psychology of visual merchandising that can affect sales and consumer behaviour.

One of the best ways to set up displays is with a versatile and simple system. This not only allows for the displays to be modified and adapted to suit changing needs and products, but it also lets the products shine.

Slatwall is the perfect solution that provides a clean and versatile display. Not only does it save on space, which is particularly useful in small shop spaces, but it provides an aesthetically pleasing design for a modern store or commercial space. But what is slatwall?

What is Slatwall?

Slatwall is a display wall system which features panels with horizontal grooves cut out. It is then attached to walls or units so that different accessories can be hung or slotted into the grooves. It is known by a few names, such as slatted wall, slat wall, grooved panelling and slot wall. The grooves are used to attach display accessories, from shelf brackets, straight or sloping hanger arms, hat, cap and ball arms, wire baskets, acrylic glass and melamine shelving, and sign holders. The options are endless.
