Spacewall International recently completed an exciting project for a new gift shop in the Texas State Aquarium (Corpus Christi, Texas). The project required a number of custom printed laminate panels manufactured using MDF and Omniwall T metal inserts in the grooves and custom display units including a custom slatwall checkout counter.
There are a multitude of factors that go into the weight bearing capabilities of slatwall paneling. Many questions about the type of slatwall to use can only be answered by the consumer; because it is only the user that intimately knows the makeup of the items sold in the store; how much the items weight; how heavily the panels are merchandised using what hardware; and the amount of traffic the store receives.
Do you know how to choose horizontal slatwall or vertical slatwall? Here are some guidelines.
Spacewall West is pleased to introduce a new baseball cap rack which holds 3 styles of 12 hats each. (SWW1336). The cap racks are available in chrome, black and white, and they measure 26” wide x 16” deep x 2.5” tall. The caps are beautifully organized and display easily on our slatwall panels.
What is the question we are asked most often by our customers? "Do you have something affordable other than white or maple slatwall? And secondly, "Do you have something I can buy right NOW and not have to wait a couple of weeks?"
Cubed panels, with grooves in either direction, are a popular alternative to typical slatwall paneling. You will receive the merchandising advantages of slatwall with a different look. The vertical lines break up the horizontal lines to give a unique appearance. Choose your pattern, from 6” up to 24” squares; or try a different pattern with 6” x 12” rectangles. Available in paint grade, LPL, HPL, mirror and veneer. Check our gallery for pictures of cubed and rectangular panels.
Did you know that our new Excel Particle Board (PB) is a sustainable design particleboard that is manufactured from 100% recycled wood fibers? It is NAF formaldehyde-free and has an internal bond of 150 lb/in2. Spacewall Excel PB holds 30-40 pounds per bracket on a 12" faceout with superior hanging strength. It has a smooth surface for ease of painting or laminating. We stock Excel in paint grade, low pressure laminates and can manufacture high pressure laminates as well. Available in Los Angeles, CA. only.
Why would you make your own slatwall when Spacewall West can make it more quickly, efficiently and with far more options than you can achieve on your own?
If you are not in the retail store fixture industry, you may not be able to answer that question. But, if I had a quarter for every time I said “It’s a retail paneling system with grooves cut into it that goes on the perimeter walls of retail stores and you display from the grooves,”…well, I’d be a rich woman!
