You could offer ProSlat wall storage as part of a garage upgrade or use it yourself in the shop. The installed product looks something like a retail slat wall, but the panels are made from 2-mm-thick recycled plastic with a weight capacity of 75 pounds per linear foot. According to the maker, the panels’ tested impact resistance is 25 times greater than that of drywall. They’re screwed to wall studs and can cover entire walls or just a section. They cost $3 to $4 per square foot.
