Proslat Garage Organization

Howdy Woot! Meg from Proslat here to answer any questions you may have. Except for during the OSU game tomorrow. Don’t interrupt my football. O-H!

What makes the proslat product different from other products such as gladiator or Versatrack?

The most significant benefit of Proslat vs. other brands is in the value proposition - that you can actually afford to cover an entire wall in our product. It can be used as an interior finish-no need to drywall (unless firecodes require - some states do). All screws and trims come in the box, so no need to purchase a bunch of other stuff. Add to that the increased functionality of having an entire wall covered in storage that you can move at whim and BOOM!! ADVANTAGE NUMBERS 1-4 (of many). inbox me if you want the full list.

It’s an interesting proposition to use these in place of drywall. 1/2 inch gypsum has an R-value of 0.45 by itself. What R-value would your product provide if used without drywall?

Also… http://www.coloradoenergy.org/procorner/stuff/r-values.htm just in case people questioned my information.

I have a slat wall that was installed with my garage cabinets. It looks pretty standard. Not being knowedgeable in all things slat, are the accessories (hooks, bins, etc…) pretty standard and likely to fit most slat walls? If not, can you provide me with some dimensions so that I can determine if these will fit?

This.

I’ll jump aboard and say I’d like to have this answered as well.

For instance, say I have Flow Wall or GlideRite slatwall or accessories already. Are these compatible to mix and match with what I already have?

I too surrender creativity in favor of 1+ing this question.

Do the accessories fit walls by Garagetek?

Thanks

Will the accessories fit a gladiator wall?

Hi all- Our walls are 4 3/4" on center. as long as your hooks don’t have a return on the bottom, we’re good. If you’re curious, email me an image @ meg@proslat.com. We have engineered our walls to work with standard peg & slat hooks, but not all with our walls. Happy to review and get back to you.
Thanks & O - H!

I - O!

Can the panels be cut to fit a size smaller than 8x4?

I really would like an answer to this as I am currently in the middle of budgeting for insulating my garage. Not having to purchase gypsum board would help cut some time and some costs though I would need to consider an alternative for a vapor barrier.

How many of the small bins would fit on a 8 x 4 wall? And where can I get a whole bunch of small bins, probably almost enough to fill that wall with them. I can’t seem to find them for sale by themselves.

Ha! Talk about worrying about nothing. Vapor barrier is more important anyway, especially when your wall is R-13, or R-15 (since most garage walls are of 2x4 construction) at best.

If you’re interested in a lot of slatwall, look for a local store that sells retail store supplies. The going rate is $60-$70 per sheet. This has the further advantage of being compatible with all retail spacing slatwall accessories. Watch your local craigslist for huge deals on hooks, baskets, etc. from store closings. Even new on ebay they’re a lot less than what is sold for the garage market. A standard 8" slatwall hook is rates for 35-40 pounds.

Yep. Simples. Treat Proslat panels just like you would treat wood. Circ saw/jig saw.
