Slatwall display panels offer a solution to this problem by allowing retail merchandisers to display many more items higher up, making the most of their merchandising space. This also allows a better visual for customers to see all of your products.

6. Slatwall Shelving for Increasing & Maximizing Your Store Front Merchandising Space
