Heavy Duty Slatwall Panel

The popularity and application of slatwall panels has grown significantly over the past decade. From use in retail stores to office partitions, the application of slatwall panels is endless. StoreWALL offers 2 types of slatwall panels, its Standard Duty and the Heavy Duty Panel. Today’s article is a review of the Heavy Duty Slatwall Panel.

In Australia we are only stocking the Weathered Grey colour. The other colours including Brite White, Graphite Steel, Global Pine, Rustic Cedar are available as a special order. Minimum order quantities will apply, please call us to discuss.


We recommend the use of InstallStrips for installation. Custom InstallsStrips have been developed for the Heavy Duty range. Heady Duty InstallStrips are not interchangeable with the Standard Duty InstallStrips.

Featured below is a short video comparing the Heavy Duty panels (profile/thickness) with that of the Standard Duty Panel. You can see that the additional 1mm in thickness makes a difference.

Each panel is also taller when compared to the Standard Duty Panel. The dimensions for the Standard Duty Panel are: 2438.4mm x 304.8mm x 16.7mm. The height difference in the panel is 381mm (HD) Vs 304.8mm (SD). 

Where should it be used?

Standard Duty slatwall panels are ideal for domestic use. Use them in your laundry or inside a pantry. Similarly if its a home garage and you want to either panel all or part of the exposed wall, the Standard Duty panels are your choice.

For commercial applications such as industrial garages, workshops and retail stores, the Heavy Duty slatwall panel and heavy duty slatwall hooks should be selected. The panel’s added thickness and its solid core, make it a lot more durable from knocks that will likely happen with heavy traffic.

Solid Core

The challenge in a commercial environment is the likely frequency and weight of the knocks on the panels. Having a thicker finish will ensure they have little impact on the panel itself. Even if they do however, the colour is developed into the core of the panel, so they will not show.

The added advantage of the Heavy Duty Slatwall panel is its taller profile. At 381mm each panel covers more space which in turn means less panels are required and less labour to install them.

When you compare the thickness of these panels to both a wooden slatwall finish or even a metallic one, you can appreciate the difference in quality and added durability.

Heavy Duty Slatwall

StoreWALL is your premium heavy duty slatwall provider. Not all slatwall systems are the same and neither is the quality of the wall panels themselves.

Whilst most slatwall providers use natural fibres such as wood or a wood composite, StoreWALL is PVC based. StoreWALL is designed to be core coloured – its colour is distributed throughout the actual wall panel. The benefit is that its a heavy duty slatwall with unparalleled protection against scratching and damage.

Depth of colour

StoreWALL’s slatwall’s are the same colour deep inside as they are on the surface. Therefore any scratches, dints or chips are a lot harder to see and much easier to conceal. Being PVC based its also very durable, will not retain moisture, will not change shape nor will it generate mould. Our slatwall panels are also recyclable and easily cleaned.

Each Heavy Duty Slatwall has a thickness of 17.7mm.

StoreWALL’s heavy duty slatwalls are really easy to install whether your are doing it yourself or using an installation specialist. The range of panels come in 4 colours including: Graphite Steel, Rustic Cedar, Global Pine, Weathered Grey and Brite White. Please note that our standard stock is Weathered Grey and any other colour will need to be a special order.

Perfect for Home or Workshop

Our Heavy Duty Slatwalls are designed to complement and enhance your stock if you are using them within your store. Used in conjunction with our hooks and shelves you display area will always look clean, tidy and attractive to browsing customers.

Equally at home in garages and children’s storage areas, StoreWALL is flexible enough to be used almost anywhere you require shelves, storage or displays.

Inferior Alternatives

Maybe inferior is a little harsh, but much of what is sold as slatwall panel is much less durable and usually lightly painted to provide a colour finish. Once scratched or dinted however, the internal grain shows up clearly and the slatwall finish and clean look is ruined.

StoreWALL’s flexibility and durability make it an excellent choice where materials such as MDF or wood products just will not last the distance. These surfaces are also quite likely to warp in shape, split, chip, or crack.


When you are looking for a Heavy Duty Slatwall you would expect to have to pay more than an inferior alternative. StoreWALL offer wholesale pricing to installers and clients that wish to purchase in bulk. Our prices are all displayed on our website so you can compare them yourself.
