Speciality packaging supplier Parkside has developed a new packaging solution that protects goods from damage during transit.

The Rockpocket solution is a flexible laminated bag that has been designed to hold polystyrene beads between its outer layers.

The design features an outer film built from recyclable LDPE or PET, as well as a vacuum extraction pump for removing the air between layers.

Rockpocket is expected to offer a lightweight and compact solution that is available in multiple sizes.

"Rockpocket offers the ideal solution for online retailers who want to ensure their customers receive items in perfect condition."

Parkside new product development director Steve McCormick said: "More people than ever before are shopping online and Rockpocket offers the ideal solution for online retailers who want to ensure their customers receive items in perfect condition.

"The design is totally versatile, creating a protective packaging around any shape of item and we can print bespoke high definition graphics and branding on pack to meet customer requirements."

The new solution can also be customised to include tamper proof sealing tabs and document windows, as well as track-and-trace features, such as an RFID tag or embedded image.

The company is currently developing a valve-less Rockpocket pack made from 100% compostable materials.
