Do you find yourself struggling with lack of storage space no matter how much organising you do?

Louvre Panels are a great option for warehouse managers and DIY enthusiasts alike. The panels are easy to install, lightweight, and available in a variety of options from wall panels to large storage cabinets.

They are designed with flexibility in mind, allowing you to hook storage containers, spigots and hooks wherever needed so that small components and tools are always within reach.

Louvre storage panels can also be much more cost-effective than traditional metal shelving units, which makes them an excellent choice for those on a budget.

What are Louvre Panels?

Louvre Panels are type of storage product that allows plastic containers and hooks to be attached for a versatile and customisable storage system. Made from strong steel, you can be confident they have the strength to hold all your equipment and are durable enough to last you for many years. They are specially designed to mount and hold many different storage containers and accessories including TC storage boxes.

This is because they are made up of many indents (also known as louvres) that are able to support and carry plastic storage bins and containers. The indented louvres can also be used to hang various sized hooks and spigots for tools to make them more visible and accessible.

Where can I use Louvre Panels?

Louvre Panels are very commonly used in a wide range of different environments and for a good reason – they’re just so practical. They can help you to get organised, so you don't have to spend hours searching through piles of boxes looking for what you need when it’s needed the most!

That’s why you can find louvre panels in the majority of working environments including warehouses, factories, schools, and garages to help keep small items, tools and even paperwork safe.

They can even be used at home to help keep your household small items tidy. This could range from keeping your at-home garage workshop organised, to the kids using the mounted boxes on the louvre panels to store their arts and craft supplies! Some people also use louvre panels to keep their cleaning supplies in order, or even in hobby rooms for the storage of beads and sewing equipment.

What are the benefits of Louvre Panels?

The main (and obvious) benefit of louvre panels is the versatile level of organisation they create. Small items can easily get lost or misplaced, especially if they are stored in various different places around your space which makes them difficult to find. Louvre panels create a clear and coherent solution to this problem by allowing you to store your items in a flexible space.

That’s another benefit – personalisation. Louvre panels can hold a huge variety of different containers and boxes so you can pick and choose exactly how you want yours to be laid out. Examples include our wide range of parts storage bins  that are available in so many different sizes – so you are sure to find the perfect fit for your storage needs. An added benefit of bins is that you can add labels to make your organisation level even stronger. Or you may want to keep similar items in the same coloured bin to create a dazzling colour-coordinated space.

Louvre panels are also space-saving. Their clever design means there are many versions of panels that can be fitted to wherever you need. Wall-mounted panels are the most popular choice as they can be easily secured to a wall or workbench where needed. Extra panels can also be added next to each other to create a brilliant categorised space.

When you need your louvre panel and parts to be mobile, such as in a garage or workshop, then louvre panel trolleys may be right for you. These are usually double-sided to provide extra handy storage space and are fitted with castors or wheels, so they are easily manoeuvrable.

How do I fit my Louvre Panel?

That depends on the type of wall you are mounting it to. Firstly, you need to ensure you have adequality measured your wall to make sure the panel you have chosen fits correctly. Usually screws are all that are needed it to secure the louvre panel but depending on your wall material, wall plugs may be required. If you have hollow walls, special fixings such as hollow wall anchors may be needed.

When you are securing your louvre panel to a wall, you need to ensure it has been fitted correctly so that it is safe to use. Failure to properly and securely attach it could lead to the bins, or the whole panel, falling off. This can cause serious injury so if you are unsure, it is always best to seek professional tradesman advice.
