Cleaning up and organizing a cluttered workbench or tool chest can have a bigger impact than you may think. By having a system for keeping tools organized, workers spend less time searching for tools and you can spend less money on replacing tools thought to be lost. A cost-effective and simple options is to use customizable tool foam.
As you can see in this video, tool foam comes in sheets ready to be cut by a utility or hot knife. The foam kits comprised of two sheets of foam and a two-color system can be implemented to create a shadow box effect. This not only protects the tools, but workers will also be able to clearly identify what tools are missing.
