The Invention of the Slatwall Panel

The Slatwall Panel for the retail industry was invented as long ago as the 1960’s.  Over the years the simple slatwall board has become one of the most versatile and decorative must have display systems ever invented.  Widely used in both retail shop environments and warehouses.  The slatwall panel has taken over from the basic peg board system, although metal peg panels are still widely used for many shop displays such as diy shops, electrical shops and convenience store displays.


Having worked in the Shop fitting business for over 35 years in my opinion the slatwall panel has been a revolution in the industry.  Almost all retail stores have a slatwall display area including wall mounted slatwall panels and free standing slatwall island units.  With a wide range of slatwall accessories to choose from it has never been so easy to create a stylish yet completely versatile product display whatever your business.  Demand is so high the slatwall panel is now the mainstay for many businesses.  A low cost yet versatile product display panel that is now affordable to all.

Merchandising your slatwall display board is quick and easy with a wide choice of many accessories including, slatwall hanging bars,  forward facing arms, slatwall shelves, slatwall metal hooks, slatwall acrylic displays and much more.  You can choose from our range of slatwall board colours and finishes all available at Shopfitting Supplies Ltd.  Trim your board with a choice of slatwall inserts available in a range of colours, mirror inserts and aluminium inserts.

I peer inside the garage door
Not an ounce of space left on the floor
Every cupboard – every single side
Is full of clutter – no were to hide
I let out a sigh at the task ahead
Perhaps I should go back to bed
Yet I need my torch so I start to search
I balance myself and try to perch
The boxes wobble! Oh no!  Oh help!
I take a dive and let out a yelp!
A horrid thought passed through my mind
Large spiders, creatures and other kind
Led in the dust I rub my eyes
I need to call Shopfitting Supplies
I will create a space and fit my board
To take control of my hoard
I look online there’s so much choice
I make a call – a friendly voice
My slatwall board arrives straight away
Shopfitting Supplies you saved the day!!!


Hope you enjoyed my blog
