Brickyard panels differ from Brickwall panels (below). Brickyard is a two piece construction with functional grooves measuring every 5¼ inch. The face is prefinished ¼ inch simulated brick paneling with a ½ inch MDF core. Functional grooves are cut every other grout line to produce an authentic brick-looking panel. It not only looks great, it has all the functionality of slatwall.
Brickwall panels are available using Anchor™ Core or MDF cores. The process machines the entire length of the panel vertically every five inches, as well as horizontally; therefore Anchor™ Core is recommended for increased panel strength.
See the Slatwall installation page for tips on how to install slatwall and Brick Series panels.
Anchor™ Core is 50% stronger than standard MDF. Other engineered panels are produced for surface smoothness and hardness–with minimal consideration to the center core. Slatwall requires both a hard, smooth surface and internal bond strength. Boise Cascade™ has developed internal core strength using Anchor™ Core. The Anchor™ Core manufacturing process utilizes precise resin compounds, adhesives, and press times needed to achieve beneficial results for stronger slatwall core. Anchor™ Core is exclusively available at Wind Mill.
Choosing Wind Mill's exclusive Anchor™ Core slatwall reduces slatwall breakout due to slatwall failure causing damage to panels. Anchor™ Core slatwall is compatible with standard slatwall accessories, including: face out arms, down-slants, hang bars, display hooks, and slatwall shelf supports.
