Hexacomb Packaging (Honeycomb)
Hexacomb packaging is a paper-based material that offers a unique combination of superior strength whilst being light-weight.
We specialise in the design and production of protective packaging and display panels based on paper honeycomb. It provides the highest levels of protection due its ability to cushion and absorb shock allowing products to transport safely, minimizing product damage and returns. In addition we produce graphic sign and displays panels under the name Falconboard™.
