For those who want to set up displays with a limited amount of space, slatwall displays are a good option. Be cautious and choose slatwall panels that are manufactured in the UK using a European grade 18 mm MDF. It is a good idea to avoid any low quality products that contain low quality products like Chinese MDF. While low quality products are a lot less costly they are not in the long run. The main reason is that the panels will not last as long as expected and will need to be replaced with better quality panels in the future.
Displays can be easily set up by mounting slatwall panels to existing walls. There are plenty of accessories for these panels that can be added to ensure that they are suitable for the products that you wish to display. The fronts of the panels are generally available in wood grain style finishes or in plain colours.
There are two main sizes of slatwall panels. The most common size of panel is 1200mm x 1200 mm which is four feet by four feet. There are twelve slots in each panel and these slots are 100 mm or four inches apart from one another. It is easier and less costly for the delivery of this particular size of panel and simple to install if you plan to do the installation on your own. Each panel weighs approximately 18kg and requires inserts to install the panel properly.
You will need to decide whether you wish to order 1200 mm x 1200 mm panels or 2400 x 1200 mm panels. A larger size of panel is perfect if you have a larger area to cover because you will get the most coverage using a smaller number of panels. Another choice that you will need to make is whether you want your panels in portrait or landscape configuration. The portrait configuration generally provides 23 slots each spaced about 100 mm away from the other. Landscape panels provide 12 slots that are 2400 mm long. Each panel would weigh approximately 38kg.
When you order slatwall panels they generally are delivered on a large pallet and you can remove them from the pallet for installation as needed. Any accessories would also be included on the pallet with the rest of the items that are ordered. This is one way for a company to save on delivery costs while ensuring that all of the required parts have been included in the delivery.
Slatwall displays provide an affordable option for many business owners as a way to display a large amount of items in a small area. Each panel is durable, smart looking and easy to install. Once decisions have been make about the orientation and size of the panel, the only thing left to do is order the panels and have them delivered to your business. Start by measuring the wall space to be filled with panels and then calculate the number of panels that will be required to fill the space for your display. Slatwall displays are durable and look great once installed.
