Slatwall Installation Techniques
We recommend professional installation of Slatwall Panels, by a licensed and insured General Commercial Contractor. However, if you chose to install panels yourself, following are some helpful tips.
Always consult your local and regional building codes and obtain the proper permits.
Slatwall panels can be cut very easily. For straight cuts use a table saw and cut the panel face UP, or use a circular (skil) saw and cut the panel face DOWN. Use a sharp blade with 60-80 teeth.
For irregular shaped cuts, use a jig saw with a medium blade, approximatly 10 teeth per inch.
Drill screws THROUGH the Slatwall grooves INTO the studs. It will be necessary to locate and mark the lateral position of the wall studs prior to installation. Use a minimum of 24 screws, spaced evenly for each panel. For a more permanent installation, also use a general purpose panel adhesive, applied to the back of each slatwall panel.
If your slatwall panel has mil aluminum extrusions (groove inserts), use 2 1/2" to 3", #6 or larger, pan head screws. It will be necessary to first pre-drill a pilot hole through the groove insert.
