How Magnetic Frames Can Help Your Workplace’s Productivity

In your workspace, it is important to do anything you can to improve productivity and employee confidence. Here, we will discuss how you can use magnetic frames to help workspace productivity.

What are magnetic frames?

Magnetic frames are a great way to store and view documentation. These frames are colour coded to allow you to display important documents clearly, so that employees (and/or customers and visitors) can easily see the necessary information. The frames can be easily attached to any steel/metallic surface without the need for any inconvenient adhesives or nails that may not be suitable in some environments. Your surfaces remain undamaged while your documents are displayed. You can easily insert documents into the frame without moving it – however, the frames can be simply lifted and relocated if necessary.

The range

There is a magnetic frame for every type of document and every type of business. Whether you want to protect important signage in a library or fire safety instructions in an office, there is a suitable frame for any area. Available in A2, A3, A4, and A5 to suit your document size, you can also choose from black, blue, green, red, and yellow, so the frame will work for colour-coded areas and information – for example, red for fire safety notices.

Protect important documentation

Having loose documentation in a working environment is not ideal, especially when it comes to documents that must be displayed for compliance purposes. Papers can become damaged, torn, or fall away from where you place them – and they are hard to stick down to the surfaces you might find in a factory or other hands-on working environment. If you work somewhere rented, you may not want to damage the walls with nails and pins, but you still need to display your documents.

Even if they are laminated, important documents can become damaged and lost, and may be hard to affix to walls. Magnetic frames can keep documents safe, even in less than ideal conditions.

Ease of access

Because the magnetic frame can be attached to any steel surface, the information is easily accessible to all employees. This means that documentation is in clear view so that anyone can see it whenever they need it – this is especially useful if the magnetic frame contains instructions on how to carry out a certain job. This can mean that new employees require less hands-on training, as they can see the information they need at all times. This can provide greater clarity and quicker training, resulting in better productivity. Your team will be fully equipped to do their jobs at all times.

Creating trust and productivity


Using magnetic frames for organisation

Magnetic frames can not only help you to become more compliant by helping you to keep important documentation displayed at all times, but they can also help your workforce to feel more trusted. If employees are left to work with clear instructions, they take their learning into their own hands and will be more enthusiastic. Not having to ask for instructions saves time and money on training – resulting in a happier and more productive workforce, no matter what the task at hand is.

Keep your team in the know

The best thing about magnetic frames is that you can change the documentation as and when you need it. In some fields, information can change quickly! Should you experience a change in your staff, with new employees joining, or alterations in the protocol, it is easy to replace and update the information as needed, without needing to get new frames. This can be especially useful for fire safety or first aider notices, or any signs where the staff members or their contact information may change. This can save both time and money in fully replacing the frames.

As we have seen, magnetic frames are the perfect way to create a more productive workspace, as well as improving the overall organisation of your environment and aiding in compliance. Important documentation is both highlighted and protected, allowing your employees to complete their tasks more quickly and easily.

Clear Plastic Pockets: A Simple But Effective Item For Businesses

The most versatile and straightforward way to communicate in the workplace is often by displaying notices and reports in ‘clear sight’, using these modern versions of clear plastic pockets.

The most logical ways to disperse information in business premises have no technological alternatives. Physical documents mounted close at hand or notices posted at eye level keep your corporate messaging ‘upfront and central’.

This is not only a highly effective system, but it’s also cheap. Traditional display materials, like clear plastic pockets, are an inexpensive way to communicate safety, location and productivity information. You can keep staff updated and store reports in plain view, switching locations and updating materials quickly.

You may need to handle inspection reports, product specs and user manuals often during a working day, so sliding them in and out of protective clear pockets makes perfect sense.

The lynchpin of all this is having a stock of different kinds of clear plastic pockets. In designs that lend themselves to being used for a diverse range of communications purpose and attached to different surfaces.

Designers and manufacturers of plastic document holders have not stood still as IT advanced! They have found ingenious ways to bring this tried and trusted stationery item up to date, and ready to use in a range of creative ways.

There are times when you need a series of interchangeable messages or codes displayed around your workplace, without expense or permanency. This is when fully adhesive clear plastic pockets are a flexible solution.

You can mount them on various clean, dry surfaces, then use them to display important locational codes or operational reminders. Information can be changed in an instant, and the different sizes of clear plastic pockets give you options to display larger workplace signs too.

They can be stuck to most flat surfaces and used for:

• Stock locational codes.
• Safety signs.
• Recycling segregation indicators.
• Equipment user guides.
• Company status notices.
• Barcodes or content titles on storage boxes.

Magnetic pockets

For any workplace with an abundance of metal surfaces, the option of displaying key information and reports using magnetic display materials is ‘attractive’.

The important thing is to find a supplier of industrial-strength magnetic clear pockets, so you can slide information in and out and move them around repeatedly.

These then become ideal for purposes that include:

• Racking content details.
• Locational aids on metal shelves.
• Staff information on metal doors.
• Content and handling info on roll and mesh containers.
• Order picking intel on racking, shelves and trolleys.

Beaverswood stocks these clear plastic pockets in different colours too, so you can reflect your company’s system for flagging staff information within different coloured magnetic pockets.

Self Adhesive Document Pockets

Sometimes you need clear fronted display pockets to collate and highlight information all in one place. Colour coded self-adhesive document pockets are ideal for this purpose, as you can mount amendable documents and signs with a protective layer.

The pockets themselves are strong enough to be long lasting, and they can be vital for such purposes as:

• Health & Safety information and reminders.
• First aid point guidance.
• Foyer marketing displays.
• Interchangeable information on exhibition stands.
• Staff canteen notice areas.
• Production status displays.
• Stock layouts and guides.

We have covered more uses and benefits of secure document holders in a previous guide to mounting company information and signs., you can read here.

However, it could well be that you have your own ideas and requirements for posting up messaging in your work environment.

The above are just examples of flexible display materials we stock, but clearly, clear plastic pockets are here to stay!

3 Document Display Holder Solutions For Your Office

Keeping staff up to date on vital H&S information is easy with the right document display holder solutions. In this article, we take a look at modern ways to mount notices, signs and reports that need to be regularly updated.

The list of Health & Safety information that employers need to display is comprehensive. Including a highly visible health and safety law poster.

You will also have your own notices and documents that need to be clearly seen, depending on your procedures and work systems. Possibly you still rely on some paper-based reporting and inspection documents that have to be quick to access and use.

Getting all this information posted up in logical places can be a challenge. Particularly as H&S messaging must be clear to see and use, to keep you compliant. If documents and signs start to get obscured by racking, transitory equipment, storage units or even clusters of staff, you create a bad impression during inspections or start to let basic work systems slip.

Fortunately, manufacturers of document display holder solutions are rising to this challenge. They now offer creative ways to post vital information and reporting systems. They are not only high-vis but also a quick and convenient method of updating the information you must exhibit in your workplace.

We put the spotlight on three document display holder solutions for contemporary employers.


frames4windows adhesive window document pocket

When it comes to document display holder solutions, this is a relatively new type. It is an ingenious way to post double-sided notices or reports. It can also help you to utilise glass partitions and windows to display workplace information.

Better still, self-adhesive Frames4windows are robust and re-usable. You can relocate them as required, without leaving a sticky mess on your surface.

Reports and notices can be slid seamlessly in and out of either the horizontal or vertical glass-compatible document holder, which is available in five colours to categorise workplace messaging.

Fully Adhesive Backed Pockets

Sometimes, more traditional adhesive document pockets are the best way to post up important information or to hold reports that need to be constantly maintained.

The trick is to find ones priced low enough so you can buy document display holders in bulk, without sacrificing quality. You need to be able to repeatedly slot information into a hard-wearing plastic sleeve and attach it firmly to diverse surfaces.

Our fully adhesive-backed pockets tick these boxes and come in multiple colours as well as A4, A5 and A7 size options. One of the most common uses of this particular document display holder is for easy to read barcode signs on warehouse and storeroom racking and shelves.

Coloured Magnetic Pockets

Using an adhesive document display holder is not always practical, or the best way to exhibit information in a workplace.

The problem can be solved by finding a low-cost supplier of magnetic pockets for notices, signs and inspection reports. These too fix well in a surprisingly diverse range of locations, from warehouse racking to your staff room fridge, and from filing cabinets to mesh cages and metal doors.

This can make product identification easy to update and signpost, as well as providing re-usable colour-coded holders for H&S and procedural information. They are a versatile way of displaying information on whiteboards – and noticeboards that use magnets – too.

Sign of the times – workplace information overhaul

As the economy rebuilds post-pandemic and employers welcome more staff back to the workplace, it’s a good opportunity to review all your signage, noticeboards and document display holder systems. Particularly make sure any H&S documentation ‘holds up’ to scrutiny when you next get inspected.

Organising the Industrial Workplace for More Productive Workflow

Organising the Industrial Workplace for More Productive Workflow.

Workplace organisation is a visual and physical method of correctly organising the workplace. It ensures that only required material and equipment is present and that it is stored in a manner that aids the efficiency of the production facility or workplace.


Workplace and Stock Organisation


It goes without saying that labelling the workplace makes life a lot easier when searching for specific inventory or paperwork.

In the industrial workplace you can label shelving, racking, bins, boxes, trays, cupboards, folders… anything and everything!

Label holders and ticket holders are the most common and cost-effective method of labelling within the workplace.

Our label and ticket holders are available with a magnetic or self-adhesive backing which allows the holder to be fixed to either a magnetic receptive surface, like warehouse racking, or to a non-porous surface like wooden shelves in offices.

Labelling also improves stock control and logistics. Simply fix the labels underneath the relevant inventory and they will instantly be easier to locate.

Waste Organisation


Industrial workplaces get through tonnes of waste. Keeping your waste segregated not only helps the environment but it also keeps the workplace safer by preventing slips and trips on casually discarded waste.
If recycling is important to you then segregating waste into categories is an essential process of helping the environment. Having waste collection units designated for mixed recycling (or more specific waste products like plastics, cardboard, metal etc) is good practice for the workplace. Waste can often be a by-product-afterthought of the manufacturing, packaging and logistics process but within every industrial setting it is accumulated significantly every working day. Not only is abandoned waste an eyesore, but it can also cause genuine and painful slip and trip hazards for pedestrians. We have a solution for this: racksack®.

The racksack® is easily attached to end-of-aisle racking and shelving with metal ‘S’ hooks, saving valuable floor space.

Organise your industrial waste into categories. The racksack® was designed specifically to help facilities to segregate industrial waste. Designs include:

  • General Waste
  • Mixed Recycling
  • Mixed Paper & Card
  • Plastic Only
  • Shrink Wrap
  • Plastic Strapping
  • Glass
  • Wood & Timber
  • Cardboard
  • Aluminium
  • Metal
  • Electrical


In addition to the racksack® we also have racksack® trolley which is designed to fit onto standard order picking trolleys enabling the user to collect waste as they go, as well as the racksack® rollcage which, similar to the racksack® trolley, is designed to be attached to a rollcage container to easily collect waste on the go.

Tool Organisation


Shadow boards are a simple but 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 and 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 accountability to return the tools to its 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 to deal with minor incidents or in an emergency situation, causing less panic and confusion.

The Modulean Shadow Boards come in various colours and accessories, and is now available in a ‘Lite’ version with an optional mobile stand.

Safety Organisation


Clearly indicated safety signs and instructions are an essential feature for workplace health and safety in many professional working environments. Identifying company safety policies, procedures, routes and locations is important for the safety of staff and visitors on any premises, especially industrial settings. With safety in mind, high visibility signage is a must.
Health and safety is a company responsibility for the encouragement, regulation and enforcement of workplace health, safety and welfare and occupational risks. A simple, highly visual signal or framed sign can help comply with all of these responsibilities.

We offer a wide range of floor signals, signs and document display products (pockets and frames) to help emphasise and clearly display important messaging and safety protocol information. Available in various colours for colour coding.

Floor signals, markers and Frames4floors™ offer highly visual and easy to understand instructions. Made with tough, durable PVC material these floor products are designed to be able to withstand everyday pedestrian and vehicle traffic, with an aggressive adhesive backing suitable for application onto clean, flat, sealed surfaces. Floor signals are a simple way of highlighting walkways, traffic flow, pallet positions and general marking on the floor. Floor markers and Frames4floors™ are ideal for permanently displaying important information.

Document pockets and Frames4docs™ highlight and accentuate important information which can be changed frequently on notice boards or communal areas.This is not only for safety organisation, productivity can also be improved with the display of reports, targets, rotas, even daily quotes!
