For a young family in a new home, planning for growth is one of the key objectives for any garage renovation or home project. The large amount of overhead storage means that the family can grow their interests and past times with space to spare to store the related gear and equipment. With a slatwall storage system, there’s room to re-arrange hooks, baskets and shelves. Slatwall systems are ideal to optimize, expand and re-organize the usable storage space.

Not every garage remodel needs to be a huge project. The most effective storage solutions offer you a straightforward way to easily access and find tools, supplies or equipment.

Hockey and Bones
There’s no question that hockey players are among the world’s toughest athletes.
If anyone needed any reminding of this, a great example was provided by Gregory Campbell of the Boston Bruins in last year’s Stanley Cup play-offs. While killing a penalty, Campbell dove to block a slap shot from two time NHL scoring champion Evgeni Malkin. The impact of the speeding puck broke his leg instantly. Campbell got back up and finished the shift.
Can one imagine a soccer player reacting in such a manner? Or how would a badminton player respond to breaking a bone in mid-play?
