The Wall Control pegboard storage system solves five main wall-mounted storage challenges better than any other system available today:
Durability - Wall Control's strong metal pegboard prevents the peg holes from fraying and wearing out over time. Traditional pegboard panels start out ugly, wear out quickly, and eventually the pegboard hooks no longer stay engaged in their peg hole and will fall out when the tool is removed. The panel face, manufactured in the US from 20 gauge steel, ensures that Wall Control's system will last a lifetime; many times longer than traditional pegboard products.
Strength - Traditional pegboard is weak by nature due to the material it is made from. The strength of steel, combined with a formed flange around the perimeter, make our metal pegboard panels over 10 times stronger than conventional pegboard. More strength equals more storage.
Versatility - Wall Control's unique "Combo" style panels allow the user the option of utilizing traditional pegboard hooks as well as our own patented, much more secure, "double offset" hook and slot design. Wall Control's metal panels are also magnetic so you can attach all your magnetic accessories as well. Engineered for both secure engagement and ease of movement, Wall Control's Hooks, Brackets, Shelves, and Accessories will install easily and stay put. The versatility of these storage panels is also highlighted by the all-steel shelving system that Wall Control panels support. Finally, a pegboard system that has the ability to support substantial weight on a matching, integrated shelving system.
Ease of installation - Wall Control installs in minutes. Ease of installation was a key criterion during the design phase of this pegboard system. Manufactured with a built-in flange on all four sides, the Wall Control storage panel requires no pre-built framework and mounts directly to any flat surface. The flange spaces the panel's perforated face away from the wall so that the hooks, brackets, and shelves will engage with no wasted area. The convenient 16"x32" standard size and modular design make it easy to handle and a snap to install. If you have traditional 16" stud spacing, you can hit studs all the way down your wall with Wall Control's brilliant mounting hole instructions. If not, have no worries, included are drywall anchors as well, so hitting studs is not required, although obviously preferred, if possible.
Attractive Appearance - Available in eight durable, scratch resistant, powder-coated colors as well as a very reflective and attractive metallic galvanized finish, Wall Control Storage Systems truly are suitable for use in any location wall-mounted storage is desired in the home, office, or workplace. These high quality finishes resist rust and stains and even wipe clean with a damp rag. When you combine sleek design with a high quality finish, you can't go wrong.

I am excited to share my Wall Control experience with you! I had been looking into some sort of flexible organizational system for over a year now, and when I had the opportunity to test the Wall Control system, I was anxious to see the craftsmanship of the product, its versatility with other systems, and the skill level needed for installation.
I was certainly impressed with the craftsmanship Wall Control put into the design of this products. The mounting locations are 16" on center and will work for most wall studs 16" on center. The openings for the hooks and pegs are perfectly spaced and allow the user to maximize product storage. I love the way hooks are designed as they simply secure on the top and bottom of the opening, and each hook uses wings or tabs to keep sideways movement to a minimum. The end result is a space saving, weight distributing hook that securely holds items.
The Wall Control System does not limit you to wall control hardware, as the metal board is engineered with holes 1" on center that will adapt to conventional pegs from other manufacturers. I used the Wall Control pegs to mount a small basket I had for small loose items. The boards are even magnetic, so I was able to stick my magnetic parts trays and torpedo levels to the edges of the Wall Control board for further clutter organization and ease of use.
For those of you who have never tackled a project like this, you will feel like a pro and your finished results are durable and certainly functional. The impact to the time taken from your day will be minimal as installation was simple and seamless. I feel like my installation would have taken longer than most as I was using masonry drill bits and a hammer drill, and I had 2 panels mounted in less than thirty minutes. The Wall Control system allowed for family participation as its low "intimidation" factor gave me the perfect opportunity to involve my 3 year old son!
Above all, I truly enjoyed my Wall Control experience. From the mounting hole spacing and quality mounting hardware, to the hook design and universal peg mounts, this system is one that does not limit its user. One could even say the Wall Control has an addictive property, as I have already picked out my next Wall Control products. I cannot wait to expand my Wall Control system and maximize my wall space for my storage needs.
The finished product.
