Slatwall is the name of the boards that make up the wall for a SpaceGain system. The cabinets or accessories then hang from the Slatwall.
Yes, Extremely. Our Slatwall is made from a thermally fused laminate. It is a commercial grade product that is very durable and is a perfect material for high traffic areas such as a garage.
Yes, access to outlets, telephone jacks or water lines is simply accomplished by cutting a hole through the Slatwall.
It can be, but we recommend you install the slatwall 12" - 18" above the floor. This space will allow access for additional storage below, sweeping and washing. Most customers install a 6' high section of slatwall so the slatwall will be 7' - 7 1/2'.
A properly installed cabinet can hold up to 200 pounds.
This is a matter of opinion. Some customers like an open cabinet that is easy to see inside and get to items. Putting doors on the cabinets keeps the content "dust" free and provides a neat, clean look.
SpaceGain uses a commercial grade 100 degree European door hinge. This is the most durable door hinge used in the cabinet industry. By using this type of hinge, SpaceGain knows that their doors will hang straight for years.
SpaceGain is a modular system that can accommodate any garage. To come up with a design for your garage a SpaceGain specialist can come to your house or you can use the Garage Grid work sheet provided in the products page to come up with a design.
No. We recommend two people for the Slatwall installation and then one person can install the cabinets.
Yes. A SpaceGain certified professional installer can install your custom storage design. For exact installation pricing, a SpaceGain specialist will require a visit to your house to review the scope of work.
#1 - Quality. Every part and component that makes up the SpaceGain system is commercial grade.
#2 - Durability. Cheap storage systems are just that, cheap. The phrase "you get what you pay for" definitely applies to garage storage systems. You should ask yourself "How long do I want my cabinets to last?"
#3 - Flexibility. SpaceGain is one of the only systems that allows customers to choose exactly where they want their cabinets positioned. Unlike cheaper systems that require the cabinets to be installed into the studs, SpaceGain allows their cabinets to be installed anywhere the Slatwall is.
