Core Features

Flexi-Hex® surfboard packaging is a strong cardboard sleeve made using a flexible honeycomb design. Renowned for its incredible strength, the hexagonal cell structure provides an impact-resistant layer of eco-friendly packaging that fully encompasses and protects boards. The sleeves are compact in their natural state but easily expand around and form to the shape of a wide range of boards. They can be cut to length, or multiple sleeves can be joined at the seam using paper tape, which makes them extremely adaptable in their use.

Flexi-Hex surfboard protection can reduce the costs involved in board packaging through efficient use of materials. Benefits will also accrue throughout the supply chain due to better protection, faster packaging time, ease of storage and a seamless unpacking experience for the customer.
