Flexi-hex improves board packaging in every way. Currently packing boards is time consuming, costly and includes using a range of different materials that are mostly harmful to the environment.
The Flexi-hex sleeves are made from 100% recyclable cardboard and can be assembled in approximately 2 minutes.
Flexi-hex can be used to pack a wide range of boards including: shortboard surfboards, longboard surfboards, snowboards, wakeboards, skateboards and so on.
How many sleeves you use is determined by the length of the board. For example, a standard 6ft surfboard will need 2 sleeves and most longer boards may need 3. The sleeves simply slide on from the ends of the board and are taped where they meet as well as at the ends for optimum nose and tail protection. Note: this is why it is good to leave a little extra sleeve over hanging on each end. We recommend using recyclable packing tape.
With the environmental impacts of mass-production about to reach this planets breaking point now is a better time then ever to consider your options and use more sustainable choices. Public awareness around single-use plastics is on a steady incline and as this growth in consumer knowledge spreads the companies that have gone by carelessly polluting are being rightfully exposed.
Bubble wrap is losing its pop, all in the name of sustainability. The mass produced plastic packing material is non recyclable, so it ends up in landfill or worse the sea. Using Flexi-hex will displace a considerable amount of plastic waste.
Show your customers you are actively reducing your environmental footprint by implementing Flexi-hex into your packaging system.
Flexi-hex is not only made from 100% Recyclable and Biodegradable materials it can also be reused. The strength and flexibility in the design gives customers the ability to unpack and return the sleeves into their convenient storage size.
Creating a more environmentally friendly board packaging solution is what started our mission, the fact that using Flexi-hex will also save you time, money and space came as additional benefits. #rideplasticfree
