Difference between slatwalls and inserts

You need to know slatwalls and inserts are different exhibit displays. Slatwalls give much of a ladder type of appeal as they involve slats that run from side to side. The user creates adjustable shelving slats. Slatwalls have feature holes with insertion shelving that fit into the wall.

Therefore, it is good you know what exactly you are looking for. Slotwalls & inserts are of different sizes. At Theos Timber merchants, all our products are machine-slatted with ready-made plastic inserts.

Slotwall inserts are used to add both strength and visual appeal. We advise that you buy the inserts when you purchase the slotwall; that is because not all slat walls are interchangeable. Further, if you just thought about getting the panels sometime after you already bought the wall, it might be best if you contacted our experts to help out. Here at Theo’s Timber Ltd, we supply timber in Manchester and throughout the North West in the UK. If you need additional information about slat walls, here are some frequently asked questions that may help you:

Are all slat walls the same?

Well, the short response to this question would be yes. Slat walls come in different colours, but all serve the same purpose. They are mostly used in retail stores to support hangers, shelves, and buckets used for the display of products.

How are slat walls panels installed?

If you want to install them on a wall, make sure the wall is completely dry. You must use long screws and rawl plugs with holes drilled through the panels’ slots at short intervals. The last step is to add the panels to conceal the screw heads and give it an excellent finish.

Further, we advise that if you want them installed on batterns, first ensure they are dry and moisture-free. Place the batterns to the wall at intervals of 600mm. Also, ensure that each vertical edge of the panel connects at the centre of the battern. Lastly, drill holes through your slots for the panels to conceal the screws.

What is a slat wall panel?
In simple terms, slat walls are building materials used for shop fitting in display fixtures or wall coverings. The slat wall is made up of panels that are typically 4ft by 8ft. They are all made using horizontal grooves.
How strong are slat walls?
The normal slat wall is pretty strong and can withstand most shop display items. However, our reinforced slat wall has aluminium panels that amplify strength and holding capacity.
How do I install slatwall inserts?
You need a router to make wall slats and then insert custom shelves or inserts. However, you don’t have to worry as we have experts to do it for you. Slatwalls construction ideally focuses on holding heavy weights. You can comfortably display your heavy products without worry of the inserts breaking. Besides, we ensure your slatwall panel gets a finished look.
