Pegboard for Garden Tool Storage and Organization

pegboard garden tool storage 

Wall Control’s powder-coated metal tool boards make great garden tool organizers for any shed or garage wall. Get your garden tools up off the floor and organized with Wall Control metal pegboard panels and powder-coated tool boards.

Wall Control offers several stocked tool board sizes that allow the user to create attractive and useful pegboard storage space out of areas where space is limited. Whether you are creating garden tool storage space in a closest where horizontal space is limited or along a wall where horizontally oriented panels are desired, Wall Control has your pegboard garden tool storage needs covered.

Another great advantage of the Wall Control tool board system is the high quality and durability of the panel’s finish. The attractive finish on Wall Control metal tool board prevents the panels from warping, rusting, or wearing out like conventional pegboard does when exposed to the moist and dirty environment associated with gardening and garden tool storage.

If these boards get wet or dirty you just wipe them off with a damp rag and they’re good as new! Try doing that with regular pegboard!

Pegboard Product Feature: Fully Formed Pegboard Edges

pegboard edge 

Wall Control’s fully formed panel edges allow for a quick, secure, and frame-less installation on any wall or flat surface.

Unlike most other metal pegboard systems, Wall Control goes the extra mile and provides a fully formed return flange in the back of our full sized panels. This second bend in the panel’s flange allows for the returned flange to mount flush with the wall or surface you are attaching the panel to.

There are five major advantages to having a fully formed flange on your pegboard panels. We will highlight each major advantage below which includes Easy Installation, Panel Strength and Rigidity, Load Bearing Capacity, Aesthetic Appeal, and Increased Storage Area.

peg board edge

1. Easy Installation

The formed panel edges eliminate the need to add a framework to space the panel face off of the wall. Conventional “sheets” of pegboard require a framework to mount to so that the panel face is spaced off the wall properly, making tolerance for the back of the hooks and accessories to pass through. With Wall Control panels, this functionality is built into the system so all you have to do is take the panels out of the box and attach them to your wall. No framework required!

2. Panel Strength and Rigidity

The formed flanges found on all Wall Control pegboard panels creates a very rigid structure unlike what you would find if the panels were in “sheet” form. Sheets tend to bow and flex very easily because they’re structure lends them no physical material constraints. By adding formed edges we are able to create a very rigid and strong structure that will not be prone to any bending or flexing.

3. Load Bearing Capacity

The fully formed return mounting flange in the back of the Wall Control full sized panels allows for the mounting screws to tighten flush against the surface the panels are being attached too, as opposed to the panel face itself. This is an important feature and distinction because many other pegboard systems require the mounting screws to pass through a peg hole and mount flush with the panel face which is separated from the wall. This separation from the wall to the screw head on the panel face creates torque in the mounting screw and reduces the load bearing capacity of the panel overall. Being able to screw the mounting screw all the way flush with the wall eliminates the extra torque on the screw and increases the weight the overall panel can support.

4. Creates a Sleek Panel Face

The fully formed return flange allows for mounting screws to be hidden from sight on the surface of the panel face. When a Wall Control full sized pegboard panel is installed you will not see a panel face littered with screw heads on the face of the panel, they will all be “sunk” into the panel and flush with the wall for a sleek, clean finish to your storage and organization area.

Additionally, by creating the flat return flange in the back of the Wall Control panel the user does not have to tighten an exposed, sharp panel edge to their wall and risk permanent damage to their mounting surface in the event they want to relocate their panels in the future.

5. Increased Storage Area

Because Wall Control mounting screws do not require the user to forfeit peg holes for mounting hardware installation, the panel face is 100% ready for storage & organization once the installation is completed. Unlike other systems, which force the user to pick and choose peg holes to sacrifice for mounting screws, Wall Control panels are ready to have every square inch utilized with pegs and tool board accessories.

The fully formed pegboard edges on Wall Control’s full sized tool board panels are just another reason why Wall Control is first in class when it comes to pegboard tool storage and home organization.

It should be noted that Wall Control’s pegboard “strips” do not include the returned flange in the back of the strip simply due to their small size and lower strength demands. Wall Control pegboard strips still feature a flange that makes installation a breeze, requires no framework, and increases strip strength and rigidity but this flange is not returned to mount flush with the wall because the narrow dimension on the pegboard strips do not require them as they are not a limiting factor in panel strength.

Pegboard Product Feature: Horizontally Oriented Pegboard Panels

horizontal peg board
Wall Control’s combination metal pegboard panels feature both round conventional pegboard holes as well as vertical tool board slots. The round conventional pegboard holes are punched on 1 inch centers both vertically and horizontally so panel orientation is not critical for use with only conventional pegboard hooks and accessories.

However, panel orientation is critical for panel use with Wall Control’s slotted hooks and accessories. The slots in Wall Control panels need to be vertical in order to use Wall Control’s slotted hooks and accessories in Wall Control metal pegboard tool boards

Wall Control’s horizontally oriented metal pegboard panels are great in areas where vertical space is limited. Wall control offers 2.5”, 8”, and 16” tall horizontally oriented panels.

Horizontal Pegboard
Wall Control’s standard 16” x 32” vertical panels can also be used horizontally but only if conventional pegboard pegs and accessories are to be used. In order to use Wall Control’s slotted hooks and accessories the panels must be mounted so that the slots are in the vertical direction.

So in summary… for conventional round pegboard peg use only, panel orientation does not matter. For Wall Control slotted tool board accessories, the slots in the panels must be vertical.

Pegboard Product Feature: Wall Control Pegboard Bins

pegboard bins

Wall Control’s plastic hanging pegboard bins add a lot of versatility to the Wall Control metal pegboard system.

The plastic pegboard hanging bins utilize the Wall Control 14” Accessory Hanger for attachment to Wall Control pegboard and tool board panels. The 14” Accessory hanger engages in the slots of the Wall Control tool board and pegboard panels and then the plastic hanging bins are suspended by the lip on the rear of the individual bins that “hangs” onto the Accessory Hanger.

The image below helps to illustrate the connection of the Plastic Hanging Bins and the Accessory Hangers.

 peg board bins

Thanks to the clear finish of the bins pictured above you can identify the 14” Accessory Hanger that is being utilized to hang the bins from the pegboard panel face.

Wall Control offers a 14” Accessory Hanger and an 8” Accessory Hanger that can be utilized for any bin that features the required “lip” needed for hanging on the Accessory Hangers regardless of bin model or manufacturer. All of Wall Control’s Plastic Hanging Bins offer this functionality

Wall Control’s Pegboard Hanging Bins can also be utilized separate from the Wall Control tool board or pegboard panels as a stand alone item on a work surface or desk.

The Plastic Hanging Bins are also stack-able to maximize small item storage in places where space is limited.

Magnets stick to Wall Control metal pegboard!

Wall Control offers the most versatile pegboard tool storage and organization system available today and being able to accept magnets only widens the gap between Wall Control and the competition.

Unlike plastic pegboard or press-board wooden pegboard, Wall Control’s metal pegboard panels accept all magnets due to the magnetic properties of the metal used to produce Wall Control metal pegboard.

Magnets are great for a wide variety of things, from hanging art work or notes in a home or hobby application to posting valuable deadlines, instructions, or business documents in an office or industrial location.

There are a wide range of magnetic tool organizers on the market today as well and thanks to Wall Control’s magnetic pegboard panels, all of those magnetic tool organizers can be attached to Wall Control metal pegboard.
