A new type of foam packing bag designed for use on roofs is coming to the U.S. from Europe, and it’s likely to be the first product from a major U.K. manufacturer to reach the U!
The company is launching the product at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which begins Friday, the company announced on Tuesday.
The new bag will be available for sale starting at $40 on March 5, according to an announcement on the company’s website.
A brand new type with more versatility than traditional foam packs, it’s expected to be a popular option for people wanting to pack more into their homes and offices.
The bag, which is designed for the roofing industry, uses a patented process for manufacturing it that eliminates a lot of the manufacturing waste and pollution.
It also eliminates the need for a lot more capital, which could help the industry.
The product was created by the London-based company Kite, which has been working on it for about two years.
It uses high-density foam, a material that has a low melting point, which can withstand temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit, said Kite founder Richard Kite.
It is made from a polymer and is coated with a chemical, which makes it water-repellent.
This process also uses less water than traditional materials, and its a very sustainable process, said Richard Kate, who created the new product, called the Kite Skypack, which was recently awarded a Guinness World Record for best eco-friendly product.
The company says the bag’s low-waste manufacturing process is an advantage when it comes to air quality, and is designed to help consumers in their homes.
This is not the first time Kite has been able to create a product that has the highest eco-friendliness rating, said Rob Jones, vice president of product management and innovation for Kite’s business unit.
They’ve created other products, like the KITE Skypack in 2012.
“They’re really making a statement to consumers,” Jones said.
Kite launched the Skypack at CES last year, and Jones said the company was excited about the new bag, especially since it’s the first that was designed specifically for outdoor applications.
“It’s definitely going to have a big impact in terms of the amount of space that people are going to be able to take up, and they’re going to want to have their gear in a place that’s protected from the elements,” he said.
“That being said, they’re also going to need to be more durable than the standard foam pack, and there’s a lot less manufacturing waste.”
This is a great opportunity for Kate to start to bring their products to the market in a new way, Jones said, and he expects it will be a hit with consumers.
Kites Skypack will be made of anodized aluminum, which means it can withstand up to 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
The packaging is made of a polymer that is durable and water repellent, which Kite says is the key factor that makes the Skypacks unique.
Jones said it’s also made of two materials that are known for being durable and waterproof.
The first is a material called a Kevlar, which Jones said is used for military protection, and the second is a water repelling polymer.
The Kevlar is made up of three layers: a super dense polymer, a water resistant layer and a waterproof layer.
Jones also said the Kevlar’s low melting points will give it great abrasion resistance.
“The water resistance and the water repelled polymer combined is one of the most durable materials on earth,” Jones added.
KITE is also offering a $60 upgrade kit, which includes a foam-repelling foam base, two foam bags, a cap, and instructions.
Kiting’s Skypacks are also available in various sizes, from 12-inch to 36-inch.
Jones noted that Kite is hoping that with the SkyPack, it will help bring the technology to more homes and businesses, but also to more people.
“We really want to make it easy for people to find the right product for their needs,” Jones continued.
“People are going out and buying more gear now, and as they’re getting more into the business, we hope to make the Sky Pack a really popular product.”
For now, Kite will be selling the SkyPacks at retail stores and through their online store, which allows consumers to order them online for $40.
Kitten also has been developing its own air purifying foam for indoor use, and has teamed up with companies such as Procolis and Vapid to produce an air purifier for outdoor uses.
It’s unclear how many SkyPacks Kite expects to make.
