How to Choose: Panels or Channels?

GearWall® Panels and GearTrack® Channels make it easy to get items off the floor, stay organized, and create space. Designed for heavy-duty use, these systems are simple to install and easy to customize – but which wall storage solution will best serve your needs?

GearWall® Panels

Perfect for getting a range of items off the floor, in areas where you’re able to dedicate some wall space.

If you need to organize a lot of gear in varying shapes and sizes (tools, extension cords, shoes, sports equipment, etc) and want to make use of some open wall space, GearWall® Panels may be just the right fit for you. Available in 8 ft. or 4 ft. lengths, these sturdy panels can hold up to 50 lbs each and feature a tongue and groove design, allowing panels to lock easily together for fast installation. An added bonus: they’re built to withstand extreme heat, cold, and humidity, making them an organization ally in any garage environment.

TIP: To maximize space, try installing GearWall® Panels above your workbench. By attaching a Gladiator® Clean-Up Caddy and Gladiator® J & L Hooks, you can keep your workbench clean and your most utilized tools close at hand.


GearTrack® Channels

Perfect for rooms where you need easy and precise organization without taking up too much wall real estate.

If you’re looking for a more precise organization solution, GearTrack® Channels are the perfect solution. These 4 ft. channels can be used together or separately, affording you the flexibility to use them wherever you need–whether your mudroom, garage, or beyond! And don’t give a second thought to durability; like the GearWall® Panels, they’re also designed to withstand extremes in heat, cold and humidity.

TIP: When you’re constantly on-the-go, organization can fall on the priority list. Consider installing an Entryway GearTrack® Pack near the most used entrance of your home. This pack features a 32” GearTrack® Channel, Scoop Hooks, J Hooks and more, ensuring that grab-and-go items (like keys, backpacks, and jackets) are always easy to find and out of the way!
