What colours do shadow boards come in?
In addition to the standard 11 hygiene colours from Hygiene Technologies, our state-of-the-art design and print facilities allow us to print whatever colour and design you wish for. Instead of colour on white, or white on colour shadow boards, why not incorporate your corporate brand colours or design patterns?

In addition to our range of standard design Shadow Boards, we offer a bespoke design service. Our design team are well practised at fitting all the necessary tools and utensils into the smallest space possible to keep the cost to a minimum for you. (This does involve working with a number of standard sizes which are the most cost efficient). If you have specific dimensions you wish to work to, please contact our team who will be happy to advise.
Are your shadow boards supplied with fixings?
As the requirements for each factory/facility are different, we do not supply shadow boards with the fixings required for attaching to the wall.
Do shadow boards have to be fixed to the wall?
In many cases, fixing shadow boards to the wall is not an option. This may be because of many factors such as limited wall space or new walling which cannot be fixed to. In larger production halls, the walls may not be close enough to the required area.
Mobile shadow board frames
Hygiene Technologies stainless steel mobile shadow board frames can be moved to any location as required. These are used for a wide variety of applications, a few of which are given as examples below:
- Where wall space is limited.
- To position shadow boards closer to operatives and production lines. This minimises downtime and cross-contamination risk.
How long do your shadow boards last?
The life span of Hygiene Technologies shadow boards depends on your application and environment. The composite of our shadow boards is made from hard wearing and durable materials. Our direct print process also increases the life of the shadow board by removing the risk of peeling shadows. All Hygiene Technologies shadow boards have a heat-sealed laminate capable of withstanding the harsh demands of cleaning chemicals and animal fats.
Are your shadow boards suitable for outdoor use?
Yes – Hygiene Technologies shadow boards are made from material suitable for external use. Our direct print and hot laminate process make our shadow boards significantly more suited to outdoor applications than some alternative options which cold laminate or apply vinyl shadows. All laminates are external grade.
Do you charge for shadow board design?
We do not charge for shadow board design. Simply complete your shadow board enquiry form, return to us and we will provide a no obligation quotation. On receipt of your order, full visual proofs will be provided free of charge. We will not proceed to print until you have signed off the proofs.
Do you install shadow boards?
Each outlet has its own protocol and requirements for fixing Shadow Boards to walls and in working areas. We therefore recommend Shadow Boards are installed by your inhouse team (e.g. engineering). We are available to advise as required.
Are your shadow boards food grade?
Documentation is available detailing the material properties of our shadow boards, which are widely accepted as being suitable for food contact. Please contact the shadow board team for further information.
Can we have our own colour scheme?
Yes – our state-of-the-art design and print facilities give us exceptional versatility. Why not utilise this so your shadow boards match your corporate colour scheme, including management initiatives and objectives?
