What is Hivewrap?
Hivewrap represents the height of eco-friendly innovation, interlacing expert engineering with aesthetic presentation to create a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to bubble wrap. Comprised of hexagonal shaped cells, Hivewrap eliminates the need for tape or glue by easily interlocking to firmly secure a wide range of products. It is crafted from 100% recyclable and biodegradable paper. Go plastic-free with ease to enhance your green credentials and establish your brand as a forerunner in environmentally friendly initiatives. The natural brown hue carries further allusions towards eco-consciousness whereas our new crisp white version radiates pure modernity and is an exceptionally sleek option for a range of luxury goods.
What size is it available in and how do you use Hivewrap?
Hivewrap is available in two sizes 400mm and 500mm (both 250 metres in length) with the ability to expand to over 400 metres. Used alongside our dispenser system, expertly engineered for speed and efficiency, along with our rolls of tissue paper for added aesthetics.
What products is Hivewrap suitable for?
The tessellating hexagon shape is renowned as one of the strongest structures there is, making Hivewrap perfectly adapted to protecting even fragile goods. Popular products that would benefit from Hivewrap include gifts, retail, cosmetics, homeware, confectionary and ceramics, though there is essentially no limit to the potential of this wrap. Anything which might previously have warranted the use of bubble wrap, can now be packaged with this sustainable alternative.
The expandable honeycomb construction boasts extreme flexibility and malleability, meaning that awkwardly shaped products can be neatly contained within a tight package. This reduces the size of a parcel, slashing postal costs, in addition to capably protecting handles, irregular edges and a range of unique components. Hivewrap perfectly moulds around products, whether you intend to wrap individual items or larger bundles. By making tape and glue redundant, it is an extremely fast way of packing and intuitive to use, cutting both pack time and the chance of breakages.
Why should I swap bubble wrap for Hivewrap?
Hivewrap is superior to bubble wrap in terms of sustainability, strength, flexibility, space saving ability, speed of packing and cost.
Intrigued by the expandability, we tested the roll ourselves to see how much Hivewrap would be needed versus how much bubble wrap would be required to wrap the same volume of products. The result is that 1 roll of our 500mm Hivewrap equates to a staggering 4 rolls of individual 500mm x 100m bubble wrap. Hence, Hivewrap is not only providing huge costs savings but also conserving a colossal amount of storage space which can be a scarce resource for growing companies. That is a 50% cost saving, reducing space required by 20 times.
Benefits of hive wrap:
- 100% recyclable
- Highly protective meaning reduced breakages and returns
- Increased speed and efficiency of wrapping over traditional alternatives
- Clings to itself, requiring no tape or glue
- Easily torn by hand
Built with ease of use, speed and efficiency in mind, our range of Hivewrap dispensers are available in 4 different specifications, each one is mobile and either manually or semi-automatically operated so can be used in any location. These dispensers expand the paper to its optimum working length, ensuring minimum product usage for maximum protection.
Hive auto dispenser
Kite’s automated packaging technology, hive auto, is an efficient, time-saving system which dispenses hive paper either by itself, or with tissue or kraft paper. It provides a sustainable and aesthetically-pleasing packaging solution that exemplifies environmentally conscious practices. It's ability to provide effective cushioning and protection for a variety of products makes it a valuable packaging solution for businesses across different industries. It is particularly useful for businesses that prioritise eco-friendly and sustainable packaging options, providing a sustainable alternative to bubble wrap.
By employing tension to expand hive paper into an interlocking, three-dimensional honeycomb structure, hive auto creates an exceptionally shock-absorbent, protective barrier. This ensures goods are safe from surface abrasions, scratches and small handling accidents which may occur at any point in the supply chain.
This system can be purchased with a safety guillotine which provides neat and professional cuts, keeping your hands safe while you wrap and pack goods.

What is a paper dispenser box?
The Hivewrap box dispenses paper packaging formatted as a single layer (Hivewrap) intended to be wrapped directly around a product. The roll of hive paper is stored inside the corrugated box and then fed through the pre-cut slit of the box to dispense as Hivewrap. This make it a complete all-in-one solution without the need to buy a separate dispenser which is idea for small-medium sized users.
What are the features of the Hivewrap box?
The Hivewrap box is designed for efficiency and convenience with deliberate features to improve the running of a pack bench.
Firstly, the box has adhesive tabs on its base to prevent movement when pulling out the paper. Secondly, the openings are configured in a manner that enables the hive paper to expand when pulled. This conserves material usage and creates the optimal structure for protecting products while allowing the cells to interlock into each other, removing the need for tape or glue.
The Hivewrap box arrives in an outer box to ensure that it arrives in prime condition for immediate use after an easy assembly process and set-up.
