Halloween is coming so it’s important to ensure that the displays you need are on the way and will be delivered on time for your retail store holiday promotions.

Gridwall displays can be freestanding on your sales floor in countless configurations, but the most common ways are Gondola, 4-Way Pinwheel, Triangle, and a single panel displaying items on both sides.

Slatwall and Gridwall Are Vastly Different. Choose Wisely!

“Slatwall or Gridwall? Well what’s the difference?”  It’s a very common question that should be explained in terms that most can understand. After all, you don’t have time to over analyze the decision. You just want your products up and organized in a way that looks good to your customer. And you don’t want to overpay to have it delivered.

small-mahogany Explained in basic terms, Slatwall is a wooden building material (medium density fiberboard), much like plywood. It’s sold in 4’h x   8’w sheets, and can be cut easily to fit your installation need. We recommend installation by a licensed contractor, but installation by the end user is not  difficult for anyone handy with tools. Slatwall Displays are shipped in a crate by truck/freight only, because of their size and weight. UPS and FedEx parcel  delivery don’t handle shipments like this, and if they did, you’d overpay. The  process to receive this type of shipment is hassle free if you know what to  expect. Slatwall panels are are shipped with or without metal inserts. This  groove option adds significantly to the panels price, but also triples the weight bearing capacity of the panel. We offer freestanding slatwall floor displays or they can be constructed from our slatwall panels by a carpentry professional. They are not a modular display system that can be assembled and added to according to your need. Slatwall is a sheet good building material only.

Gridwall panels are vastly different. Made from 1/4″ thick welded steel, this rigid mesh patternedgridwalldisp panel product is shipped in boxes of 3. These display products can be delivered by UPS Ground (depending on the size). Sizes vary and should be considered when laying out your retail display and is not generally cut to size. Grid Wall is generally considered to be the most versatile display system available. Used often at trade shows, craft expos, and outdoor events  all over, Gridwall can be assembled to create a booth or display that can be  disassembled. This display system can also be mounted on the wall in your retail  environment in a permanent installation. Slatwall Accessories and Gridwall Accessories are available in countless styles and are delivered very inexpensively.

When deciding which system you may want to use in your retail environment, any existing accessories you already own should be considered. SlatGrid is a grid panel system, like gridwall, that is able to accept both Slatwall and Gridwall accessories. A store room filled with slatwall hooks will work just fine on SlatGrid panels, saving time and money.

Take a trip to your local shopping mall to evaluate which system would better suit your needs. It’s a certainty that you’ll find both in use. We want to be of help when selecting Slatwall Panels or Gridwall Displays to ensure your retail store is set up with the best display products to fit your needs.

Hope your displays work well for you.
