Consumers are increasingly concerned with their impact on the natural environment. With public awareness around single-use packaging and the devastating effect of plastic marine litter at an all time high, implementing Flexi-Hex into your packaging system will displace a considerable amount of plastic waste, and show your customers you are actively reducing your environmental footprint.

Its implementation into the packaging stream displaces a considerable amount of plastic waste and benefits users via a multiple-use lifespan.


High Compression Resistance

Cardboard is not only affordable, accessible, lightweight, and completely recyclable, it is also surprisingly strong and durable. The sleeves are designed to not only protect the rails but the deck, nose and tail.

Flexible Sizing

The hexagonal cellular structure allows flexibility to fit almost any shape surfboard. To allow for varying sizes,
Flexi-Hex is made of two open ended modular sleeves
cut to size and fixed at the center point.

Once nested on top of each other, the system creates
30mm of separation between surfboards, further protecting them during shipping.

Reusable

The strength and design of Flexi-Hex allows for a multi-use lifespan, ensuring the safe transportation of boards to their destination and onwards.

Upon arrival, re-sellers or customers will not only benefit from a new board, but from a protective sleeve that can be used multiple times. On removal, Flexi-Hex returns to its convenient and easily storage size and shape, benefiting the supply chain all the way to the end user.

Space Saving

The honeycomb geometry expands to create a sleeve 35 times wider than its compressed form.
The system’s flexibility is pragmatic for compact lightweight portability.

All in the Detail

Flexi-Hex allows brand details to show through
and allocated space along the rails allows board specifications to be clearly marked ready for distribution.

This has the dual benefits of improved brand visibility throughout the transport and sales process, and correct product identification without unpacking.

Board Variations

Flexi-Hex packaging is not specific to one board type or size, making it easy to protect and ship any board, at any time. The honeycomb sleeves work effectively with all kinds of land, snow or water based board shapes.

Whatever your board, Flexi-Hex ensures safe transportation, accommodating a wide range of shapes and sizes whilst protecting the most damage prone areas.

Board Variations

Flexi-hex packaging is not bound to protecting one board type. The honeycomb sleeves work just as effectively with other boards such as snowboards and skateboards.
