Kite Packaging introduces new chilled packaging range

Employee-owned business, Kite Packaging, has introduced a new, innovative chilled packaging range to its product offering. The new temperature controlled range includes five different products that offer high quality, thermal protection for a wide variety of temperature sensitive goods on the market.

When it comes to transporting produce from the food and drink industry, pharmaceuticals or other temperature sensitive goods, it can often prove challenging to maintain their desired temperature.

These products need to stay at a certain temperature to ensure they remain fit for purpose, therefore they require sufficient packaging which will do exactly that whilst offering secure protection.

Kite’s new enviro-friendly insulated boxes are produced from materials with insulating properties that outperform polystyrene. The outer layer is produced from 100% recyclable, environmentallyfriendly Kraft paper and the internal layer is made up of 100% biodegradable starch-based loose fill that not only preserves the in-the-box temperature but also provides cushioning protection.

The next product Kite launched is its new insulated box liners. These are comprised of a metallised polyester outer to reflect heat away from the product, a bubble wrap middle layer to provide an interval of cushioning insulation and an inner HDPE foam layer offering high resistance against moisture and chemicals as well as further insulation.

For businesses who are distributing large pallet size quantities of stock requiring a temperature sensitive environment in transit, Kite recommend their new thermal pallet covers. These are equipped with the same properties as the insulated box liners, therefore also providing strong resistance to low temperatures against damage in transit.

Other essential chilled packaging solutions that can help maintain temperatures on the road are coolants. Ideal for overnight shipments, Kite’s new ice sheets and gel packs will maintain low, internal temperatures to ensure products such as food, fish and pharmaceuticals remain fit for purpose.

The final thermal product the Kite team have introduced is their temperature controlled pouches which act as effective insulating protection for smaller items for a shorter length of time.
