Modulean® Shadow Board Tool Organisation

Modulean® shadow boards are a simple and effective way of organising important workplace items. Designed with the ‘5S’ system in mind (Sort, Set In Order, Shine, Standardise and Sustain) shadows boards have many benefits, including: 

  • Improved productivity
  • Easy traceability of tools
  • Staff accountability
  • Workspace utilisation
  • Value for money


Our Modulean® shadow boards are a highly visual and useful tool (excuse the pun) to keep track of tools and equipment. Having a set location for specific tooling helps prevent them from getting lost and brings staff accountability; to return the tools to their rightful place after use. Shadow boards are also great for creating a focal point (or ‘station’), for example a first aid station. Meaning there is a designated location when looking for the first aid kit in order to deal with minor incidents or emergency situations in a timely manner, causing less panic and confusion.

Modulean® shadow boards are available in various colours (blue, green, red or yellow), with products on display, and optional accessories.

Now available in a Lite version with an optional mobile framework stand.
