Slatwall (slotwall) is a panel made with horizontal grooves that are configured to accept a variety of merchandising accessories. Standard spacing of these grooves is 3” OC (on-center), but this spacing can be changed to accommodate merchandising density. Optional groove treatments include paint, plastic or aluminum inserts. Panels are typically made from MDF (medium density fiberboard) and meet the demands of store planners and merchandisers worldwide.
It is usually made of medium density fiberboard (MDF) with a melamine paper pressed or laminated onto one or both sides.Grooves are then machined into the board usually at 100mm spacings.The grooves are normally covered with inserts. The inserts are mostly made of plastics. More expensive inserts are normally of metallic materials such as aluminium. There are various colours and design schemes. It is mainly used in shop-fitting to provide space for displaying goods. The standard size of slatwall board is 2400mm x 1200 mm, with the grooves across the 1200mm width referred to as “Portrait”
