    What is a shadow board?Shadow boards in industry

    Shadow boards are workplace organisational tools that ensure all your cleaning tools are accounted for and in order, enabling you to segregate your workplace cleaning equipment and to reduce the risk of cross contamination.

    Hillbrush shadow boards

    Our shadow boards ensure equipment is stored efficiently and cleanly, making shadow boards an integral part of site improvement. Shadow boards help reduce replacement costs by ensuring equipment is always available and in good condition. Our shadow boards improve colour coded segregation, reducing the risk of cross contamination and reinforcing colour coding policies on site. 

    Shadow boards are custom designed to fit your requirements and may include your company branding as well as multiple languages.

    Material options

    Our workplace organisation boards can be made from two types of material. Both are great options with varying properties depending on the need.

    Antimicrobial food approved plastic

    Hillbrush offers antimicrobial shadow boards in 3mm and 6mm food approved plastic. Manufactured from co-extruded plastic that is infused with Biomaster Antimicrobial Silver-Ion Technology, this technology prevents bacteria growing on the surface of the products, resulting in a reduced risk of cross contamination and risks to your staff, end users and company reputation. These boards offer a multitude of features including water and chemical resistance, easy wipe down surface to prevent the build-up of hazardous contamination, fire proof and anti-static properties and they are even recyclable.

    These wall mounted fixtures are used to affix your shadow boards to walls and other hard surfaces. They are available in multiple sizes, leaving a recess between the shadow board and the wall for easy wash down and improved hygiene.

    Contact us to inquire about the fixtures and fittings you require for your shadow board. We will work with you to select the best option for your facility’s unique needs. We recommend shadow boards be installed by your in-house maintenance team.


    Hillbrush offers all shadow boards in a multitude of colours to suit your needs and segregate your environments. You may select a coloured background with a white or black shadow, or a white background with a coloured shadow of your choice.

    Factory Floor Plan+Shadow Boards+MagnifiedSection-small

    Our experts follow industry recognised procedures such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, or HACCP as it is commonly known. HACCP is a preventative approach to food safety from biological, chemical, and physical hazards in food production. By identifying critical control points, the HACCP system can be used at every stage of the food chain from manufacturing through to distribution.

    The seven key principles of HACCP

    • Conduct an analysis of hazzards
    • Determine the Critical Control Points
    • Establish critical limits
    • Set up a monitoring system
    • Establish a procedure for corrective action
    • Establish procedures by which to verify the effectiveness of the HACCP plan
    • Maintain thorough records
