What is the difference between FeatherLock® & Wing slat?
Our unique patented design on the FeatherLock® slats features a 10-inch self-locking section at the top of the slat which holds it in place without the need of a top or bottom track. The FeatherLock® slat offers approximately 80% privacy (based on wire/mesh used stretch tension). The FeatherLock® is the easiest slat to install.
The Winged Slat® is designed with flexible and resilient wings positioned on each side of the slat body the whole length of the slat. Serrations are added to the wings for easier installation and locking power. The Winged Slat offers approximately 90% privacy (based on wire/mesh used stretch tension).

What are your slats made of?
Our slats are manufactured from High-Density Polyethylene or HDPE. Color pigments and ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors are added which are specifically formulated to retard the harmful effects of the sun and lengthen the life of the slats. There are two exceptions. The HedgeLink slat is manufactured with a 16 gauge braided core wire and the “needles” are made with 3-mil PVC. The Aluminum Slat is manufactured from extruded aluminum with a gloss-baked enamel finish.
