Pegboard Hangers

Pegboard Storage

Pegboard storage is the perfect system for many people who wish to organize various items in the home or office. The garage is an obviously common location for its use, as the pegboard storage systems are well suited for tools. But they can also be used to hang other items as well, including:

  • Bathroom items
  • Jewelry
  • Photographs and artwork
  • Musical instruments

Average Cost of Pegboards

Though pegboard storage systems are essentially identical to one another, you can categorize pegboards according to the materials from which they were constructed, which can be generalized as wood or metal. Their costs vary, with prices of a standard 48in x 96in panel ranging from a little less than $10 to as much as $45. The prices depend more on the manufacturer and the shop from which you buy them from, rather than the materials from which they are made.

Wooden Pegboards

Wooden pegboards are lighter, and are thus easier to transport from one location to another. They are usually a fourth of an inch thick, and the perforations that are spaced an inch apart from one another have a fourth of an inch diameter. The pegboards come in standard sizes (24in x 48in, 48in x 48in, 48in x 96in), but because they are made of wood, they are easier to cut to fit. This can be a great convenience, especially if you plan to mount them on irregularly shaped walls. It would be best to have the staff at the home improvement shop cut them to your specific measurements, as they have the experience, skill, and special tools for this task. But you can easily research the proper method if you wish to do this yourself.

Wooden pegboards are usually colored white, black, or natural wood brown. But paint in various colors can be applied easily enough to suit your particular taste.

Metal Pegboards

Metal pegboards are becoming more and more popular today. They also come in standard sizes just like the wood pegboards, though they have a smaller 16in x 32in panel that costs an average of a little over $30, and a larger 48in x 120in panel, which can cost up to $500 or more in some shops.

Manufacturers of metal pegboards use different metals for their products, and their weights vary accordingly. Some metal pegboards have vertical slots instead of holes to hold more kinds of hanger accessories such as shelves, and some metal pegboards have both kinds of perforations.

Metal pegboards are known for their durability and strength. The metals used can last longer, and the metal panels are three times as thick as wood pegboards. You can use them almost indefinitely, and the perforations will not warp or deform. A metal pegboard correctly mounted on a wall can support items that can weigh up to a total of 2,000 pounds.

Aside from the abovementioned features, metal pegboards also can come in many colors. They come in smooth and patterned finishes to suit every preference and taste.
