Custom Polyethylene Foam Tool Shadow Boards

Shadow boards are a device designed to organise a set of tools. The board outlines custom-cuts (silhouettes) where individual tools should be placed when they are not in use.

This very easily and quickly enables employees and workers to ascertain when (and which) device is missing from a kit and make for an efficient, uncluttered, and straightforward storage option for workspaces and work vehicles.

Benefits of Tool Shadow Boards:

  • Improves accountability
  • Health and safety compliance
  • Uncluttered workspaces
  • Efficient and simple
  • Minimise inventory
  • Easy to keep clean and sanitise

The great advantage of shadow boards is that they're designed bespoke to a customers' requirements, from size and density to colour and each tool's size, shape, and depth. However, they're not just for the use of tools and can accommodate many different industries, from quality inspection processes, cleaning carts, postal rooms, photography equipment and medical instruments.
