Here is an interesting high-definition example of Slatwall armored with metal channel inserts as reinforcement. Visually it presents a nice defining edge and contrast with the face material. Functionally it prevents hook pull-through due to heavy merchandise or customer abuse. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup. Hookery is also nicely done All Wire Flip Front Scan Hooks with a hint of ICC (Inventory Control Clip).
