Plastic-free protective sleeving available now from Kite Packaging

Flexi-Hex sleeving has previously been associated with bottle packaging; Kite have now launched a considerably larger version designed to offer premium protection to items as big as mirrors, frames, blinds or large screens including TVs and computers.

Comprised of two layers of the iconic honeycomb structure, the sleeves are extremely flexible and thus capable of stretching to fit around even irregularly shaped objects such as bike wheels or delicate parts.

This degree of malleability saves a considerable amount of packing time when compared to the use of bubble wrap, for example, wherein each protruding element would have to be wrapped individually. Irrespective of differences in product shape, all items can be packaged quickly, easily and competently when using a Flexi-Hex sleeve, minimising the chance of breakages while maximising efficiency.

The paper sleeving simply stretches over the product to offer ultimate protection to high value items. The hexagonal cells form a strong structure with reliable shock absorption and an overall aesthetic appearance.

The plastic-free packaging is fully recyclable and biodegradable while the paper itself is 85% recycled and sustainably sourced. Therefore, in addition to expressing functionality and an attractive look, the large Flexi-Hex sleeves are also environmentally friendly.

Hence, this innovative design satisfies the main requirements of modern packaging by being efficient to use, fit for purpose and finally, sustainable to produce and dispose of after use. The packaging is available for purchase in a choice of three sizes from Kite’s website now (
