Antalis to create a ‘Sustainability Street’ at VM and Display Show

Antalis will show-off its range of eco-friendly visual communications substrates in a ‘Sustainable Street’ setting at the VM and Display Show at London’s Business Design Centre on 5-6 April. Every element of the Antalis stand - from the structural to the decorative - will be made using substrates for use in retail store design, instore displays and POS. 

“We are positive that the Antalis stand will both inspire and excite visitors to the possibilities of a more sustainable future for visual merchandising and display,” said Claire White, specification consultant at Antalis.

The company has been rapidly growing its range of printable display substrates that form part of its Green Star System, 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.  

Its ‘Sustainable Street’ 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 range of applications, including POS, 2D/3D displays and internal furniture.

In addition to Xanita board, the stand will also be showcasing other substrates, including Lumex A (a fire rated, clear APET alternative to acrylic sheets), Katz Display Board (a printable wood pulp fibre board), Triaprint ( a recyclable alternative to PVC and PUR foam boards), Yupo Jelly (a PVC free, 100% recyclable polyester film that sticks to any flat surface for easy to remove and reuse graphics), and Heytex Ecotex Decoflex R (made of 100% recycled yarns suitable for short term outdoor use). Antalis will also showcase materials from its Coala range.
