Installation Instructions

Installation Hints

Level - all panels before installing.....when installing horizontal panels always level the bottom panel first.

For installation on walls, horizontal panels provide a longer more seamless appearance than vertical slatwall,
because they are installed in pairs with the seam hidden in the channel where the panels are butted together.

Some, but not all slatwall factories put an arrow, or mark on the side or back of the slatwall.
Make sure the arrows or marks are all going in the same direction.
If slots do not line up, flip the adjoining panel 180 degrees. This should resolve most line up problems.

Cut panels face up with a table saw, face down with a skill saw.
Use a sharp blade with at least a 60-80 teeth count.

Slatwall panels may be affixed over existing walls I.E. Drywall or wall paneling or directly to studs in new construction (if local codes permit).

Use 2-inch drywall screws (or larger) installed through the grooves.
For panels with extrusionS, use 2-inch or larger # 6 pan head screws, first drilling a pilot hole through the extrusion.

Use at least 24 evenly spaced screws throughout the panel.
Panel - adhesive may also be applied to the back of the panel for a more secure or permanent installation.
