Visual Workplace Introduces DIY Foam Tool Organizer Kits

BYRON CENTER, MI – September 2018 – Visual Workplace, Inc., has introduced Do-It-Yourself Foam Tool Shadow Kits. The shadow boards keep tools and work areas organized, eliminating wasted time spent searching for tools. Tool control is an important part of a Lean work environment, reducing tool replacement costs, process variability, and even injuries and strain by having tools properly placed and readily available at the point of use.

The two-piece, closed-cell foam kits offer three contrasting color combinations so operators can quickly visually identify when tools are not in their proper place. The foam organizers can easily be placed in drawers or racks.

Each kit contains:

  • High quality 4 lb. cross-link, closed-cell foam
  • Black/blue, black/red, and black/yellow foam combinations
  • Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) for secure placement to contrasting ¼” foam
