At VMT we are strongly of the opinion that only the tools needed for process need to be visually stored on our Shadow Boards. But, in a complex and busy maintenance area where there is a demand for varied and bespoke workflow the need for a comprehensive kit of tooling is paramount. VMT ensure that the design layout of our Shadow Boards is logical, ergonomic and makes best use of available space.
The Shadow Boards shown here do have a large amount of hand tooling stored. But the visual nature makes this storage much more efficient for day to day use than for example the tools being stored away in tool chests. It is immediately apparently when a tool is in use or missing as there is a shadow in place of the tool.
