Organize Your Workspace With Customizable Shadow Boards For Tools


A shadow board is a board that can be wall-mounted or free standing that has outlines of a work station's tools rendered on it, allowing operators and employees the ability to quickly locate or identify what tools are in use or missing. Discover how AccuformNMC™ Shadow Boards can transform your workspace, enhance productivity, and contribute to your facility's organizational efforts or processes following the 5S, Lean, or Kaizen programs.

Benefits of Shadow Boards

A place for everything, and everything in its placemobile-shadow-board

AccuformNMC™ Shadow Boards for tools offer a range of benefits for organizing your workspace. With these shadow boards, you can easily keep track of your tools and equipment, ensuring that everything has a designated place. This not only saves time but also reduces the chances of misplacing or losing tools. By having a clear visual representation of where each item belongs, you can improve efficiency and workflow in your workspace. 

Another benefit of AccuformNMC™ Shadow Boards is that they can help you save space. By utilizing vertical space on the walls, or free-standing mobile stand-alone options, you can free up valuable countertop or floor space. This allows for a more organized and clutter-free workspace, making it easier to find what you need, when you need it.

Additionally, these shadow boards are highly durable and can withstand the demands of industrial applications and a busy work environment. They are made from high-quality materials that are resistant to scratches, chips, and fading. This ensures that your shadow boards will continue to look professional and function effectively for years to come.

Customizable Options for Your Workspace


Customize your AccuformNMC™ Shadowboard in four easy steps:

  1. Choose your material: General Purpose Composite/Aluma-Lite™, Industrial Grade Aluminum, and Pro Series™ Acrylic/Accu-Shield™ options are available, each substantially more durable than foam shadow boards and much better suited for use in industrial facilities.
  2. Measure the space: provide the dimensions of the wall space where your shadow board will hang (if a wall mounted option is preferred over a free-standing mobile option).
  3. Provide information about the tools you want to feature on your custom tool shadow board: simply provide details of a tool's manufacturer, part number, and description, or provide a photo of your tools beside a ruler, and we'll do the rest. 
  4. Provide your branding assets: send us your logo, colors, and font information, and we can customize a shadow board to include your branding.

AccuformNMC™ Shadow Boards offer customizable options to suit your specific workspace needs. In addition to wall mounted and mobile shadow board units, there are various shadow board sizes and shadow styles available to choose from. You can also select from different colors to match your workspace aesthetic or to color-code tools for easy identification. This makes it even easier to maintain organization and ensures that tools are returned to their proper location after use. With the ability to customize your shadow board, you can create a personalized and efficient workspace.

One of the key advantages of AccuformNMC™ Shadow Boards is their ability to facilitate efficient tool organization. By providing a designated spot for each tool, these boards eliminate the need for searching and guessing where items are located. This saves valuable time and minimizes frustration in the workplace.

These 5S Shadow Boards also promote a sense of responsibility and accountability among employees. With a clear visual representation of the tools and their proper placement, it becomes easier to identify missing tools or tools that have not been returned. This encourages employees to take ownership of their tools and maintain organization in the workspace.

Moreover, these 5S shadow boards can be arranged in a way that optimizes workflow. By strategically placing frequently used tools closer to the work area, you can minimize unnecessary movement and maximize efficiency. This ensures that essential tools are easily accessible and readily available, allowing for smooth and efficient work processes.

Enhance Workplace Safety with Shadow Boards

AccuformNMC™ Shadow Boards can be customized with safety instructions or reminders. This serves as a visual reminder for employees to follow proper safety procedures when handling tools. By promoting safety awareness, AccuformNMC™ Shadow Boards contribute to creating a safer work environment.

Furthermore, these shadow boards can be designed to include safety equipment such as gloves, safety glasses, safety goggles, or ear protection. By utilizing shadow boards to store safety gear, you can ensure that employees have easy access to necessary safety equipment and convenient mobile tool storage. Mobile Shadow Boards are particularly useful when customized with safety equipment and PPE, as these shadow boards can be placed at machines and workspaces with the equipment your employees will need to protect themselves readily available, making for a safer facility as a whole.
