The Planet Range

Environmentally friendly displays

In terms of ecology, our mindset continues to shift, and consumers increasingly choose greener options when offered them. We now offer a range of display products that acknowledge and respect these trends.

The Planet range is a high quality portfolio of free standing tension banners, roll-ups and literature display stands built to high standard, using only renewable high quality bamboo.

The result is an array of products that are elegant, functional, portable and moisture resistant.

Having long been proven as an excellent manufacturing material in tropical climes, the enormous benefits of bamboo are now being realised globally. Importantly, bamboo crops are entirely sustainable. And when our products reach the end of their useful life, they are recyclable and ultimately biodegradable.

In order to comply with environmental legislation, all items within our Planet product range have been protected with an eco-friendly lacquer coating to further enhance each product's natural look and feel.

We can now also offer graphics that are biodegradable, called BioMedia.

BioMedia is an polymer and polyefin composite based product with an enzyme additive that accelerates the breakdown of the polymer chain via enzymatic/bacterial digestion, when left in a microbe rich environment.

It is the microbe-friendly additive that grants BioMeida biodegradability. The problem with other "green" plastics like PLA is that they a) do not biodegrade quickly - analysts estimate that a PLA bottle will take between 100 and 1000 years to biodegrade. With BioMedia we know that in the right conditions the product will biodegrade within 5 years.
