What is the hole diameter on a pegboard?

Pegboard holes are typically standardized to have a diameter of 1/4 inch (6.35 mm). This size is commonly used in North America and is designed to fit standard pegboard pegs, which are also typically 1/4 inch in diameter. Some pegboards may have holes with a slightly different diameter, but 1/4 inch is the most common size. It is important to note that the size of the holes on a pegboard can vary, so it is always a good idea to measure the holes on your specific pegboard to ensure that you are using the correct size pegs.

How far apart are pegboard holes?

The distance between the holes on a pegboard can vary depending on the specific pegboard that you are using. However, most pegboards have holes that are spaced on a grid of 1 inch (25.4 mm) centers. This means that the distance between the centers of two adjacent holes is 1 inch. Some pegboards may have holes that are spaced differently, so it is always a good idea to measure the distance between the holes on your specific pegboard to ensure that you are using the correct size pegs.

It is also worth noting that the spacing of the holes on a pegboard can affect the stability and security of the items that are hung on the pegboard. In general, items that are hung on a pegboard should be spaced at least 1 inch apart to ensure that they do not interfere with each other and to provide enough support for the items to stay securely in place.

How thick are pegboards?

The thickness of a pegboard can vary depending on the specific product that you are using. Pegboards are typically made from a material such as particleboard, medium-density fiberboard (MDF), or perforated hardboard, and the thickness of the board can vary based on the specific material and the manufacturer's specifications.

In general, pegboards are available in thicknesses ranging from 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) to 3/4 inch (19.05 mm). Thicker pegboards may be more durable and able to hold heavier items, but they may also be more expensive and more difficult to install. It is important to consider the thickness of a pegboard when choosing a product to ensure that it is suitable for your intended use. You should also consider the size of the items that you plan to hang on the pegboard and the weight that the pegboard will need to support to determine the appropriate thickness for your needs.

How much weight can a pegboard hold?

The amount of weight that a pegboard can hold depends on a number of factors, including the material that the pegboard is made from, the thickness of the pegboard, the size and spacing of the holes, and the size and type of pegs that are used. In general, a pegboard made from a sturdy material such as particleboard or MDF and with a thickness of at least 3/8 inch (9.53 mm) will be able to hold a significant amount of weight. However, the maximum weight that a pegboard can hold can vary significantly depending on these and other factors.

It is important to consider the weight of the items that you plan to hang on the pegboard when choosing a product and installing it. You should also consider the size and spacing of the holes and the size and type of pegs that you will be using, as these can all affect the weight that the pegboard can support. It is generally a good idea to distribute the weight of the items evenly across the pegboard to ensure that it is able to support the load without sagging or becoming unstable.

Standard pegboard storage and organization system

Wallwerx wall storage and organization system is designed to securely attach to standard pegboards with 1/4 inch holes spaced on a 1 inch grid. The modular base is secured with two plastic brads that are simply pushed into the pegboard holes by hand. The Wallwerx module base is compatible with the jar holder attachment (fits standard mouth mason jars) that is currently sold as a 2 pack and 12 pack, and will be compatible with future pegboard organization system attachments such as hangers, hooks, pegboard magnet bar, and more.
