I swore off pegboard for years, until learning about Wall Control’s 32″ x 16″ colored steel pegboard panels. These panels have pre-formed flanges that act as wall separators. So there’s no need to futz around with wood spacers and the such during installation.
Wall Control panels are also somewhat modular, as you can add as many panels next to each other as you wish. If you just want a single panel, that’s okay too, although they’re sold in packs of two.
These steel panels are easy to install, they are quite strong thanks to their 20-gauge steel construction, and they are available in a variety of colors. So they work well and look great. There is also a galvanized finish option.
Wall Control offers a couple of kits, but I opted to purchase panels and standard pegboard hooks separately. Right now my panels haven’t been put back up after I rearranged my workspace layout, but I hope to have them back up soon.
Pegboard strips that measure 3″ x 16″ are also available, but I find these to be of limited utility. I bought one such panel on impulse, but have yet to find a place to install it.
You can use standard 1/4″ pegboard hooks, or slotted ones such as the ones Wall Control offers separately and as part of their kits.
