Shadow Boards

Tool shadow boards are a fundamental part of any 5’s 6 Sigma or Kaizen programme. They provide a quick and easy solution to storing your specialist tooling.

Our bespoke Shadow Boards are designed to ensure that tools and equipment are easily located and stored safely. They can be produced as a mobile unit, be wall mounted, or integrated into a lockable cabinet. We will design a layout for you, based on the tools you need to store.

We create the shadows from your specific tooling, giving a clear image of exactly which tool is to be located where. All of our shadow boards come complete with the fixtures and fittings ready to house your tools.

We can add text next to the image for additional information about the tool or simply as a descriptive for clarity.

They can be produced in your corporate colours with your logo and a location zone as a title for customisation. Colour variations can also be used in a series of boards to identify the tooling for different locations within your working environment creating accountability for everyone to take pride and care of their areas of responsibility.

Tool shadow boards give a professional look to any working environment and are essential to lean manufacturing.

A place for everything and everything in its place!
