Interested in knowing what this means,
The six-sided structure the honeycomb that bees produce is one of nature's own engineering marvels. Applying those structural principals while using environmentally friendly recycled paper and water-based glue, allows Rebul to provide a versatile material with amazing strength-to-weight properties. Our proudly South African paper honeycomb products serve a variety of sectors, including manufacturing, relocations and arts & decor.
Paper honeycomb packaging made from eco-friendly recycled paper is not only light and durable, but it is amazingly strong and impact resistant. Our manufacturing capability allows us to custom-make products to client specifications, creating the perfect crating solution for every use. A lightweight, perfectly fitted, reusable and flat-pack storable crate saves significant amounts of money during its product lifetime.
Our smart, environmentally friendly crating solutions is perfect for international shipping. The crate contains no wood, which means it can enter ISPM15 countries without the need for fumigation or other treatment against harmful plant diseases or insects.
Doing business internationally while ignoring the demands of environmental sustainability is fast becoming impossible.
Paper honeycomb products beat their competition on most dimensions of environmental responsibility. The packaging is made from recycled paper, which means 31% lower energy use during manufacturing. It is also completely biodegradable, which means it does not spend an eternity in landfills.
Compared to other paper packaging materials like carboard and corrugated cardboard, honeycomb uses significantly less paper in its manufacture. However, this does not mean that honeycomb sacrifices strength. It achieves an impressive 7kg/cm^2 compressible strength.
Rebul's ability to cut honeycomb board to the exact specifications that clients need, brings additional environmental benefits. A snug, custom-made crate that is strong enough to stack means less space is wasted in transit. This, combined with the light weight of the crates, enables the optimisation of freight space, which means fewer trips and less fuel burned.
