Slatwall Armor Adds Definition


Here is an interesting high-definition example of Slatwall armored with metal channel inserts as reinforcement. Visually it presents a nice defining edge and contrast with the face material. Functionally it prevents hook pull-through due to heavy merchandise or customer abuse. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup. Hookery is also nicely done All Wire Flip Front Scan Hooks with a hint of ICC (Inventory Control Clip).

  1. Those channel inserts seperate a good installer from an excellent installer. They also seperate the “pop up” display from the permanent fixture. Note- with these inserts, wall mount screws should rarely be revealed. They also help to temporarily align sheets. There is also a trick to inserting and removing them in the field.
