One would not imagine that basic, low-end, all-wire hooks could look so good gracing a brushed aluminum vertical display surface. Though not as shiny as chrome, the galvanized hooks nevertheless match and go well with a non-shiny, brushed aluminum background. Even more amazing is that the surface is faux … a thin, maybe even paper thin, foil-like finish. Additional proof is the metal slatwall channel inserts preventing pullout and failure of the less-than-solid-metal backing. A great look at a bargain price.

Always ask for samples when outfitting a display surface. Not all slatwall is created equal, and reinforcing channel inserts may change the fit. Every reputable manufacturer will happily provide samples, particularly in cases where a slatwall channel insert is involved. Check the fit before you place your order for 1,000, 10,000 or 100,000 hooks. You’ll be glad you did.
