Loose fill (void fill)

Fill the void with Kite

One of the most comprehensive ranges of void fill and 'in-the-box' products available online. Our various solutions encompass a variety of materials and applications to give you perfect protection when having to fill the voids around your items, once you've packed them into the box. This ensures there is no movement of the items inside the box, which could damage them in transit.

Void fill and loose fill chips

When transporting items that do not quite fill the box in which they are placed, using void fill chips is important to protect against potential damage from occurring. Our EcoFlo loose fill is not only constructed from maize-based starch but is also compostable and 100% biodegradable, meaning it is environmentally friendly too. Even better; our void fill packaging solution has been proven to be a popular choice for customers mindful of environmental consideration when choosing their packaging products. EcoFlo loose fill will naturally degrade, a process which is sped up when the product comes into contact with water. We offer EcoFlo in 3 cubic ft bags as well as the standard 15 cubic ft version. The smaller bags are popular with retailers looking for a space-saving point of sale void fill solution. For anyone who wants a slightly more presentable and characteristic void fill product, our multi-coloured loose fill chips add a great splash of colour to packaged products. We also offer in our range traditional polystyrene loose fill, considered by some to be a more premium product. The biggest advantage it has over starch-based loose fill is that it does create the small amounts of dust that the starch-based equivalent does.

Paper protection

Our Speedman box, manual paper dispenser system suits packing areas and warehouse environments where products are being packed and protected for shipping and is an efficient and low-cost system. High-quality paper on a roll is contained within an easy to use dispenser box. The Speedman box is versatile, light and easy to use and can be carried to any area of the dispatch department. If you require a paper-based void fill solution but are a high volume user, our Speedman Classic, Speedman Pro and Paperjet systems might prove to be a better alternative. Ideal in busy packing areas these systems offer reliable and fast methods for dispensing paper cushioning to protect your products. For more information view our online demonstration videos.
