Antalis – a global company with its UK headquarters in Leicestershire is returning to the show this year with a stand that showcases how a wide range of sustainable materials can be used within a retail environment.

The company has been rapidly growing its range of printable display substrates that form part of their Green Star System™. This is a framework that considers how each material is produced and how easily it can be recycled at end of life to meet the growing demand from the retail sector and other industries.


Called ‘Sustainable Street’, every element of the Antalis stand – from the structural to the decorative – will be made using substrates from within its portfolio of sustainable products.

Antalis’ stand will be entirely constructed using Xanita board, an engineered closed cell fibreboard manufactured from material recovered from recycled, used cardboard boxes. It is an environmentally friendly alternative to MDF and other non-sustainable materials and is suitable for a wide range of applications, including POS, 2D and 3D displays, and internal furniture.

In addition to Xanita board, the stand will also be showcasing innovative and sustainable substrates for a variety of applications, such as 100% recyclable:

  • Lumex A - a fire-rated, clear APET alternative to acrylic sheets.
  • Katz Display Board – a wood pulp fibre board offering high-quality printability for POS
    small 3D structures.
  • Triaprint - a cost-effective and environmentally friendly and recyclable alternative to the
    use of PVC and PUR foam boards.
  • Yupo Jelly - a PVC free, 100% recyclable polyester film that sticks to any flat surface
    without adhesive, producing graphics that are easy to apply, remove and reuse.
  • HEYtex Ecotex Decoflex R - a textile option deco material made of 100% recycled yarns
    suitable for short term outdoor use.

 

 

 

Furthermore, Antalis will not only be displaying their range of sustainable substrates for traditional POS and display applications, they will also showcase materials from their Coala brand that support the transformation of internal environments through interior decoration and upcycling.


Coala Interior Film is amongst the products that will feature on the stand. It is a collection of aesthetic self-adhesive finishes, which create the illusion of raw materials without the complexities of traditional construction. With over 470 easily applied film finishes available, from wood, leather, marble and stone to metallic, glitter, fabric and solid colour categories, the options are endless.


Visitors to the stand will also see Coala Windows Décor.  This is their latest addition to the range, offering the opportunity to enhance glass elements with decorative or colourful film, alongside Wallstar Digital and Coala WallDesign wallcoverings. Whatever the requirement, the Antalis range offers solutions to enhance, change or update any retail environment, allowing the quick, convenient and cost-effective reinvention of spaces, display and promotional activity.
