The boards look great for our display - nice material and easy to work with. However, we placed two panels right next to each other - touching - and found that the top and bottom boards were not evenly cut, so when I placed two panels next to each other with slats lined up/parallel, the boards were unequal by about an 1/8 of an inch. We plan to put our title signs up to cover the flaws.
The Slatwall instructions don't note the maxium weight it can hold. Our commercial building also doesn't have any wooden studs. According to the instructions it can be held up with the 13 anchors/screws it comes with, but that really makes me worry about putting anything too heavy on the shelves.
