Samuel Grant Packaging has launched a new protective packaging solution in association with their business partner Gaia Packaging Solutions.
Samuel Grants is the sole distributor for the solution, dubbed AIR|SHIELD, which provides enhanced protection benefits with better commercial and environmental credentials.
The solution is aimed at reducing the dominance of polystyrene and other traditional packaging materials such as bubble wrap, foam and film.
The AIR|SHIELD range has the capacity to provide either a fully automated or manual solution offering the option of immediate performance improvements on packaging lines.
Samuel Grant Packaging sales director Martin Harris said: “This is an enormous advancement in protective packaging.
“One client recently converted eight artic truck deliveries per month of polystyrene packaging into 6 pallets per month for one of their kitchen packaging facilities– the financial and environmental savings across the year are enormous.”
The AIRSHIELD is made from 100% recyclable film and can reduce its environmental impact.
Polystyrene and foam packaging have been a concern for environmentalists for the time it takes to biodegrade. Samuel Grant said Ii peppers the world’s seas and shorelines, and in its foam form causes harm to both land and sea creatures.
AIRSHIELD claims to challenge this impact by being the next generation packaging for customers who wish to benefit from competitive price points while reducing carbon footprint and waste.
