Reduce Waste and Motion with Tool Shadow Boards

Nearly 25% of workers' time is spent searching for tools, information or equipment.

Having the tool you need, when you need it, can significantly reduce wasted time and effort. Tool shadow boards make it easy for workers to remember where things go, and serve as a visual reminder when things haven't been put away. 

Three reasons you should be using tool shadow boards in your 5S process:

1. Save time: Workers don't waste time searching for items needed for a task.  
2. Reduce safety hazards: Tools aren't lying around, potentially causing injury.
3. Reduce costs: Fewer missing or damaged tools that need to be replaced.


These boards are ideal for non-food contact or general maintenance. We offer both Ultra Aluma-Lite, which is ideal for indoor/outdoor applications and Accu-Shield, which can withstand harsh chemical environments.

  • Order boards only or kit with cleaning tools (kit includes the 5 most popular general maintenance cleaning tools)
  • You choose board color (blue, green, red, yellow, white) and tool shadow color (black or white)

Zinc-plated hook hardware for cleaning tools included
