The ‘Protega Protect’ is a unique desktop paper machine producing high volume ‘on demand’ protective paper packaging
The footprint of the slimline Protega machine is not much larger than an office printer, and fits easily into even the smallest despatch area. Alternatively it can be placed on a height adjustable stand and integrated into a packing line.
One unique feature is that the paper rolls are pre-folded. This means that they are easier to handle than traditional wide paper rolls, this has enabled the machine to be manufactured to a very small footprint of only 635mm x 360mm and at a weight of only 50kg.
The New Industry Standard
Protega Global design and manufacture all our machines and equipment in the UK. This means we have the ability to customise machines and equipment so that they can be integrated into your packing process.
Height adjustable stand
The Protega paper cushioning machine can be placed on a height adjustable stand and integrated into any packing line, enabling flexibility and increased productivity’.
Protega Global supply bespoke packing benches in conjunction with our paper cushioning system which together can be integrated into your packing area. See our integration page to find out how we can help you design your packing area to maximise workflow
We have designed the machine to be small enough and sufficiently light weight to move freely around your packing area. If required this gives you the flexibility to move the machine to different pack areas, or easily change your packing layout.
With a simple turn of the dial and push of a button you control the length, quantity and programme.
The coiler comes as an optional attachment to the Protega Machine which is programmed to produce paper coils at pre-set lengths.
This is an ideal replacement for ‘foam in place’ typically used for heavy engineered, electronic or ceramic parts.
Our Protega Paper void fill solution is both robust and easily mouldable. Because of the way the Protega paper is creased and crimped it secures and cushions your products, absorbing shock and eliminating movement in transit.
Easy to Load
Due to its unique pre folded design our Protega paper rolls are smaller, lighter and easier to handle than traditional rolls, making loading easier than ever. At 14.8 KG the Protega paper rolls complies with the HSE’s recommended safe lifting weight at elbow height
Lightweight mobile baskets are available to fill and distribute paper cushions from a single machine to multiple packing areas. Quick to assemble and mounted on castors these baskets are easy to manoeuvre in restricted spaces between pack benches.
Our Protega Paper is 100% recyclable, biodegradable, compostable and made from 100% recycled paper. Protega Paper is also certified and approved by FSC©

Using the correct techniques with Protega paper cushioning ensures that you can save time, reduce waste and protect your goods correctly.
Coiling the paper is an ideal method for protecting heavy and fragile products. Placing a coil in the base of the box allows you to nest products in the coil. By adding a further coil on top of the box the products are then safely sandwiched between two coils of paper giving very effective all-round protection.
A quick and efficient way of providing all round protection for single items.
Twisting the paper is an effective way of bulking up the paper to fill gaps and securing your products, at the same time as reducing paper usage.
Block & Brace
This method is an excellent way of minimising use of paper and avoiding total void fill within the box. Once a small coil is wedged between your product and the edge of the box it will remain firmly in place during transit.
