Antalis launches roll storage unit and carbonless paper range

Antalis has launched a new compact portable roll storage product designed to make it easier to handle and transport rolls of large-format media.
The Stock & Roll, which is commercially available immediately, can hold up to six rolls of up to 2m wide – accommodating both 2in and 3in cores, while taking up minimal floor space with its 600mm diameter.
The option of extra roll splitters allows more rolls to be added, which enables users to double or triple their storage capacity.
The device features a patented roll blocking system, which Antalis said ensures fluent mobility on all kinds of floor while its ergonomic, sturdy design is said to make it easy to transport up to six heavy rolls securely and then load and unload them easily.
