Lighter, more open Mesh for larger Banners
PVC AirMesh banners are ideal for outside use in high wind areas as the large mesh allows wind to pass through. We print and finish AirMesh Banners to any size or specification on our 5m wide machines.
PVC AirMesh banners allow air and some light to pass through, which means less resistance to gusts of wind. Ideal for high building and scaffolding wraps. Billowing, flapping and the risk of your banner ripping are all reduced.
Mesh is also lighter in weight than a traditional frontlit banner. Normal PVC banners are not recommended in winds of 30mph+ as hems and eyelets can be ripped out.
A professional survey of your intended installation site is advisable for any banners over 25 square metres in size. A surveyor will calculate wind-loading on the structure and advise on the fixings necessary.
Larger AirMesh Banners such as Building Wraps are normally installed in sections, straight onto scaffolding using Bungee Shock Cord. Your scaffolder should ensure that no pole ends are projecting so that they may damage your banner.
Without scaffolding, large mesh banners can also be installed using a wire cable frame and a criss-cross effect of bungee rope. This method allows even more give when the wind hits the mesh banner and ensures a secure and long-lasting installation.
As standard we hem and eyelet our Mesh Banners all round with heavy duty webbing and metal eyelets. Pockets to slide poles through can be provided at no extra cost, please specify the pole diameter in your order notes.
