Airlaid disposable runners offer a versatile, practical and hygienic solution to dress the table in style, greatly appreciated by the hospitality industry and used increasingly also at home
We are used to seeing disposable runners on the tables of bars and restaurants. Disposable runners made of airlaid, a material similar to fabric, are elegant, strong and pleasing to the touch, while ensuring practicality and hygiene. They can be white, coloured or printed and are easy to match with the other elements of the table. They are widely used in the hospitality industry for all these reasons. Nonetheless, due to the fact that it is handy, versatile and suitable for any style and occasion, the disposable runner is also used with increasing frequency to dress the table at home. It is ideal for an elegant dinner, an informal lunch or a quick meal, besides being simply perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack.
How do you lay the table with a runner? And how long should a table runner be? There are various ways of positioning it, depending on use and style. It can be used tête à tête or positioned in the centre of the table, as a decorative feature. Our runners vary in length from 4,80 m to 24 m and are produced pre-cut according to the customer’s needs to obtain the right size for any table, whether square or rectangular. Pre-cutting also allows practical placemats to be obtained from the roll of runner. The versatility of the airlaid runner allows the table to be dressed in style and gives a touch of sophistication to any space.
Disposable runners are the ideal solution for those seeking both practicality and eco-sustainability. In fact, our disposable runners can be FSC® (FSC-C139999) and OK Compost Industrial certified. OK Compost Industrial certified runners are biodegradable and compostable and can be disposed of in the organic waste for sustainable waste management.
Airlaid disposable runners for the retail channel are supplied in handy display boxes.
Papermon meets the growing demand for sustainability by providing disposable tablecloths with a low environmental impact
Always mindful of environmental issues, we have welcomed the growing demand for more sustainable products over recent years. In 2019 an International Trade Centre survey commissioned by the European Commission showed that retailers in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain were encountering a growing consumer demand for sustainably sourced products. According to the survey, many of them work in partnership with their suppliers to introduce environmental and social standards. We are among them and have responded to the demands of distributors and the retail channel by using more sustainable materials and production processes to produce our disposable table linen.
According to research commissioned by the CarbonTrust, for 74% of the large companies interviewed sustainability is expected to increase in importance as a result of the crisis triggered by Covid-19. Already in March 2020 the World Economic Forum claimed that the coronavirus pandemic is a wake-up call to stop exceeding the planet’s limits, and that deforestation, biodiversity loss and climate change will make pandemics more likely. In view of these trends, at Papermon we are also increasingly investing in the direction of sustainability, with disposable tablecloths made of compostable airlaid and biodegradable paper.
Our disposable table linen, which includes tablecloths, both in rolls and folded, placemats and runners, respects the environment and can be FSC® certified (FSC-C139999). FSC® is an independent international organisation that ensures that the certified product comes from a responsibly managed forest and supply chain. We have adopted other sustainability measures, such as the production of disposable tablecloths using paper obtained from recycled raw material from controlled sources, without the addition of plastic, so that the finished product is recyclable. Moreover, our disposable table linen can be produced with OK Compost Industrial (EN 13432) certified material. This certification is issued by TŰV Austria, which by granting the right to use the OK Compost Industrial & Seedling logos, recognised throughout the European market, guarantee that the products can be recycled in an industrial composting facility. Our paper and airlaid table linen produced with OK Compost Industrial certified raw materials can be disposed of in the household organic waste collection.
Elegant and strong, airlaid table linen is widely used in the catering industry, but it is also ideal for home use
Greatly appreciated in the restaurant and catering industry, airlaid folded tablecloths are also ideal for home use, and not only to embellish the table for the most important events, but also to turn every gathering into a special occasion. Airlaid is a material made of cellulose pulp in combination with bonding fibres and is suitable for contact with food. It looks like fabric, has excellent absorbency and is soft to the touch. Elegant, plastic-free and now also compostable, it is the ideal solution for those who prefer the ease-of-use and hygiene of a disposable tablecloth without sacrificing beauty and environmental sustainability.
Papermon produces airlaid table linen in different colours or printed with patterns suitable for every occasion, customisable upon request. White and coloured tablecloths are compostable, biodegradable and recyclable, as are the patterned tablecloths produced with compostable inks. Standard formats come in the conventional sizes 120x180 cm or 120x240 cm. Other formats are available on request, including tablecloths with a width of 140 cm, which offer a longer drop. The tablecloths are folded and packed individually for greater practicality and distributed in euro-slot bags ideal for hanging in stores or in handy display boxes.
Papermon has long-standing experience in the production of disposable private label table linen made of different materials for distributors, retailers, major supermarkets, hospitality and catering. Widely used in the restaurant and catering industry, practical and elegant airlaid disposable tablecloths are ideal for the home to make any occasion special, thanks to the wide choice of colours, patterns and formats suitable for tables of any shape and size.
