A professional-looking workplace is not only pleasing to the eye - it is functional, improves productivity and also helps provide a safe working environment.
When tools and equipment are put away in an orderly manner, they are easily located for quick use and prevent clutter in the workplace, which can cause accidents.
In fact, in the Australian National OHS Strategy 2002-2012, one of the five national priorities is the elimination of hazards at the design stage, which covers not only building and structures but also work environments, materials and plant.
The approach has been designated Prevention through Design (PtD) and allows all concerned parties the ability to prevent or reduce occupational injuries, illnesses and fatalities through the inclusion of prevention considerations into all designs that impact workers.
Car-O-Liner’s new Workspace Solutions is a system of tool boards, wall sections, separators, wagons and accessories that provide the bodyshop owner with all the materials necessary to design and construct professional-looking workspaces, that provide for the efficiency and safety of users.
Ergonomically-designed display panels are ruggedly-built for long service life, while providing aesthetically pleasing and practical display areas to store and display shop tools and accessories.
Car-O-Liner's Workspace Solutions use modular panels, complemented by moveable panels on wheels, referred to as wagons. The system is comprehensive in its inclusions and versatile in its application.
Preparing displays is made easier for the user through pre-set tool outline templates.
Accessories like tool holders, clips, boxes and hooks complement the panels to provide sturdy holders for all types of tools, with emphasis on Car-O-Liner products.
Tool wagons are designed to allow the user to choose among a range of toolboards. The bottom of these wagons features four wheels and a tray to hold more tools.
Accessories include work shelves, feet, bars and storage bars. A range of sliding and power curtains complement the Workspace Solutions, to allow the shop owner to layout the shop into different workstations.
