Slatwalls are a popular wall surface used by retail stores to display their merchandise. Over the past 10 or so years, the concept of wall panels in your home garage has really taken off. Most wall panels, in particular slatwalls built for retail stores are white or grey in colour. Plastic slatwalls like those offered through StoreWALL are grey in colour. Accessing coloured slatwall outside of these standard white or grey colours can be challenging.
This (image on left) is what your typical timber slatwall panel looks like. This supplier offers white, dark grey and a wooden (Tasmanian Ash) finish. These slatwalls are built specifically for retail stores and the colour range reflects this. Whilst they can also be used at home and in the garage, there are some limitations. The composite wooden material they are made from is not going to perform well in garages that are likely to be exposed to really hot, cold or damp climates. It’s also a soft wood making it likely to show even the slightest knock.
Thermoplastic slatwalls like those from StoreWALL will not warp or attract moisture no matter the climate. They are also a dense plastic so are harder to dent but also the colour runs throughout the thickness of the panel making it less likely that knocks will show.
This week I was contacted by a previous StoreWALL client who had used the Dover White StoreWALL panel. It was used throughout his workshop and it looked fantastic. White has become rather popular and if you look on the internet for StoreWALL images you will see that white (both Brite and Dover White) regularly features along with the weathered grey and the baltic pine.
StoreWALL is the only supplier of garage wall panels which extend beyond the standard grey colour. The only supplier that I can find in Australia anyway.
Over the past few years, StoreWALL has expanded its wall panel range to include 7 coloured slatwall designer options:
- Weathered Grey
- Brite White
- Dover White
- Graphite Steel
- Rustic Cedar
- Global Pine
I have included an image to the right show demonstrating the range. From the left to right the colours are Brite White, Dover White, Khaki, Weathered Grey, Global Pine, Rustic Cedar and Graphite Steel. In addition to the 7 designer coloured slatwall options, StoreWALL also have a Camouflage Wall Panel.
Below are further images of the coloured slatwall range with each colour labelled to assist you.

These series of images show the panels unpacked. You can see the colour coming through compared the the cardboard box in each case. It assists with drawing a perspective on the colour options.
The final colour worth showing is the new Camouflage colour. This seems to only just have been released. I will let you be the judge as to whether it works for you or not.
Accessing Your Coloured Slatwall
In Australia, our regular stock is kept as Weathered Grey. This by far the most popular colour. However as demand for other colours grows we will bring more options in and keep stock of these coloured options as well.
We can also do special orders for you. This will depend on the quantity you require ordered. Please give us a call or email to enquire. A quote can be provided for you. Pricing will come down to quantities needed.
