5S and Lean

A place for everything and everything in its place, when you need it.

It’s the technique you teach. It’s the workplace you demand. It’s the visual order we deliver.

Whether on the production floor, shop floor or hanger floor, Shark-Co custom foam solutions help the work get done efficiently, effectively and safely.

No tool is left behind and no part is missing in action. Our inventory control sees to it. So you meet the 5S and Lean certification requirements and those of your loss prevention program.

Tough as Nails

Shark-Co polyethylene composite foam is made in the USA and meets federal specifications. It’s cross-linked and closed-cell polyethylene so it’s durable, lightweight, and tough. Not only does it deliver a strong bite and grip, but it’s tear and stain resistant, fire and water resistant, mildew and odor resistant, and resilient to chemicals and lubricants found in harsh workplace environments. It’s made for it. It’s tested for it. Simply wipe it clean and keep working.

All Shark-Co foam solutions are produced using two-color, thermally-bonded layers that won’t separate. Our standard color combination is yellow and black in a high grade 6 lb. Polyethylene and comes in a range of thicknesses. (The 6 lb. density meets Federal Spec AA-59135/59136. Class 1, Type IV, Grade A).

Cutting Edge

Shark-Co custom foam solutions are precision routed to your grid specifications and tolerances. The routed edges are contoured with added grip slots allowing for easy removal. Upon delivery, all slots are ready for the tools or parts to be put into place and put to work.

Equipped with advanced equipment, 3D CAD systems, and production facility, Shark-Co works to precise standards and tolerances, along with continuous improvement practices designed around total customer satisfaction.
