Shadow Boarding is an organisation solution in which tools and equipment sit in foam, hung on the wall, this is to achieve an organised workplace where tools, supplies and equipment are stored in appropriate locations close to the work area.
Tool shadow boards reduce the amount of time wasted on searching for the right tools and allows you to easily see what tools are available at the time, if any are missing and help you to get on with the task in hand more efficiently.
So, how exactly do we make a shadow board? We use custom foam that is then cut with a CNC Router, which is a computer controlled system. The tools required are then scanned using an electric pen and board, which provides us with an accurate drawing, which then creates tool paths that are directed to the CNC Router and then “tool path lines” are cut extremely accurately into the foam layer.
Tool shadow boarding is the partner to shadow tool foam and allows you to keep your tools safe and tidy at home, work or in the garage, whilst Shadow Foaming™ allows you to keep your tools safe whilst on the go. In addition, our tool shadow boards also include Red Box’s Push Point Technology™, making it easier for you to gain access to your tools than ever before.
