Here is a retail chain that really loves their fixtures. Not only are these Flatback Slatwall Hook Backplates oversized to spread the load, they are double padded to prevent scratching the surface in any way. The bottom pad is thick foam that compresses under load. The top pad is a thin cloth strip. As you might imagine, the Silver powder coat finish is top-shelf too. This is quite a bit of attention to detail for a Flip Flop display, but the same fixturing concern was exhibited through the balance of the store.
