A Shadow Board fit for every purpose

Visually Organised to Boost Efficiency

VMT Shadow Boards aren’t exclusively used for visually storing hand tools.

From small hand tools to spares and large machine change-over parts, a shadow board can be used to effectively organise and manage your equipment and assets, whatever the application.

Hand Tools

Tool shadow board

Proven to save time searching for tools, hand tool Shadow Boards make it easy to identify missing items from a distance, a fundamental lean visual management technique.

VMT Shadow Boards can be supplied on mobile frames ensuring right tool, right place, right time. 

Change Over / Spare Parts

Purple Shadow Board

Keep operationally critical spare parts visually stored close to process, reducing potential downtime in the event of equipment failure.

Minimise wasted time in the SMED (Single Minute Exchange of Die) process by locating the changeover parts close to the process in an organised and logical layout ready for switch out.

Lifting Tackle

Red shadow board

LOLER regulations require lifting equipment to be appropriately stored, marked and inspected.

VMT Shadow Boards assist the user in locating the equipment in the correct place so the item is always available when not in use.

We created a quick video to explain some of the time saving benefits of using a shadowboard.

We will visit your site and gather information at a time and date to suit you.

Pick the Specification of your Shadow Board

We tailor the specification of your Shadow Board to suit the application in which it is being used.

We consider the size and weight of the parts to be stored on the board along with environment it has to withstand when selecting the materials and fittings that make up your Shadow Board.

We can even supply a cabinet built around your Shadow Board to add an extra layer of security and protection to you tools.
