EASY PEGBOARD 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 standard sizes and modular design make these panels easy to handle and a snap to install. If you have traditional 16in stud spacing, you can hit studs all the way down your wall with Wall Control's brilliant mounting hole instructions on our standard 16in x 32in panels. If not, have no worries, we include drywall anchors as well, so hitting studs is not required, although obviously preferred, if possible.

PEGBOARD INTO CONCRETE
Wall Control pegboard panels can be installed into concrete or on a concrete block wall although we do not provide mounting hardware for concrete installations.
We recommend either mounting the products directly using blue Tapcon Screws you can find at any local hardware store or by attaching two (or three) horizontal rows of 2"x4"s along the wall where the top, bottom, (and middle if you wish) mounting holes are located on the panel. This is what we found works best because it requires you to drill less holes in your concrete wall and gives the panels a very even surface to mount to.
So for instance, if you wanted to span a width of 4' you would use (1) 8' long 2"x4" and cut it in half and you would mount the first half horizontally at the height you want the top of the panels to be using about 4 concrete or masonry anchors. Then you would mount the second 2"x4" about 32" on center below the top 2"x4" so that it lined up with the bottom row of mounting holes in the panels, again using about 4 concrete or masonry anchors. You could also mount a third 2"x4" in-between these two because the panels actually have a center row of mounting holes but when mounting to concrete this third row may be overkill depending on your application. Once the 2"x4" are up you can simply attached each panel in a series along the 2"x4"s with the attachment screws provided with the panels.
What we have found is that if you're only installing a couple of pegboard panels then the blue Tapcon screws for concrete you can pick-up at your local hardware store typically make the most sense but if you're installing a bunch of panels it is usually easier jus to put up the 2"x4" or 2"x2"s first because that can save you some time when it comes to installing the individual panels.
