Hillbrush Shadow Boards
What Are Shadow Boards?
A shadow board is an organizational tool that enables you to segregate your workplace cleaning equipment. They can reduce the risk of cross-contamination and ensure that all of your cleaning tools are accounted for and in order.
Why Use Hillbrush Shadow Boards?
Equipment is stored efficiently and hygienically, making shadow boards an integral part of site improvement. Reduces replacement costs by ensuring equipment is always available and in good condition. The shadow boards improve color coded segregation, reduce the risk of cross-contamination, and reinforces color coding policy on site.
Shadow boards are custom made to fit your requirements and can include your company branding. Hillbrush provide options to tailor your shadow board(s) to your specific needs.
examples of shadow boards
Extremely durable aluminum laminate with a solid polyethylene core construction, DiBond is ideal for high-traffic industrial areas. Hard, strong and dent resistant it is available in various thickness options with 4mm (0.16”) as standard. Dibond shadow boards may be mounted directly, or away from the wall (using our spacers).
A 1.5mm (0.06”), flexible, co-polyester sheet. Vivak is resilient, hard to scratch and dent and should be fixed directly to a wall. (Note: Our hooks and hangers must be fixed directly into the wall through the board, therefore the SSHOOK2 and SSSPACER cannot be used with our Vivak boards).
A fine cell PVC board that has been an industry standard for over two decades. Sintra is a lighter material with a matte finish, both rigid and durable. It is ideal for lower traffic areas and warehouses and is an inexpensive alternative. Available in several thicknesses with 6mm (0.24”) as standard. Sintra boards may be mounted directly, or away from the wall (using our spacers). Please note that large boards holding heavy items will require additional spacers.
hooks and holders
Stainless steel flat hooks are screwed into the board and the wall behind.
Hook, back plate and bolt. This stainless steel assembly dispenses with the need for wall fixings.
Plastic hooks are simple, effective and durable.
Holders are sturdy and durable and can hold either 1-1.5" ø or 2-2.5" ø handles.
Our wall spacers (SSSPACER) come in 4 different sizes and are used to fix your shadow boards to walls and other surfaces, leaving enough room between the board and the wall so that you can clean behind them, as you can see in the image on the left.
Contact us to enquire about the fixtures and fittings you require for your shadow board. Different fixture options come at different costs. We recommend shadow boards are installed by your in-house maintenance team.
