More Information Back to top


Building Wraps are used typically to dress a building under construction or renovation and are used to cover scaffolding. Full colour printed at high resolution for stunning graphic effects, the fine mesh allows wind to pass through.

PVC Mesh banners allow air and light to pass through, which means less resistance to gusts of wind. Ideal for building wraps our PVC Mesh banners are printed using UV technology. 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 building wraps over 25 square metres in size. A survey will calculate wind-loading on the structure.

Where scaffolding is not already in place, large building wraps can be installed using a wire cable frame and a criss-cross effect of bungee shock cord. This method allows even more give when the wind hits and ensures a secure and long-lasting installation.

Building Wraps Finishing

Crucial to the quality and longevity of any building mesh wrap are the methods used to finish it. Traditionally, banners were always stitched. Whilst we still offer stitching (commonly on fabric materials), we more commonly use high-frequency welding on our Building Wrap Mesh banners. This gives a much stronger, more predictable and more aesthetically pleasing finish than stitching.

Omega Pockets

On large building wraps we advise to have fixing points every 3-5 metres. These fixing points should be positioned on the supporting upright scaffold tube. We would recommend an ‘Open Omega Pocket’. An omega pocket is x2 open flaps on the reverse of the banner which runs vertically. These flaps have eyelets on each edge, wrap around the scaffold tube and can be tied together by either rope, cable ties, or bungee chord.

Building Wrap Sizes

We print Building Wrap Mesh on roll widths up to 5 metres wide. Wraps larger than 5 metres both horizontally and vertically will be joined with a weld.

Building Wraps Fitting Methods

  • Scaffold Frames – Building Wraps are most often installed onto existing scaffolding. Your scaffolding contractor can be instructed to make a simple frame, to which your wrap is attached using strong bungee shock cord.
  • Bungee Ties – once fixing points have been completed on the wall – typically large eye or hook bolts – bungee clips or ties can be used to attach to the banner eyelets. This method tensions the banner as well as allowing some give when the wind hits, thus protecting hems and eyelets.
  • Wire Frame & Bungee – a steel wire frame can be run though eye bolts approximately 300mm outside the banner. Once the wire is tensioned, the banner can be fitted to the wire using a zig-zag of bungee shock cord – this is best done in short sections of 4-5m. This gives the effect of a trampoline on its side, tensions the banner and allows some give for high winds.

Artwork Guidelines Back to top


Before submitting artwork, please make sure you have read these guidelines carefully as we cannot accept responsibility for any incorrect printing due to setup / artwork error.

File Formats

We only accept files in PDF, AI, EPS, JPEG, PSD or TIF Formats
(Tif / PSD files must be flattened)

Type

All Text on files must be created to outlines, curves or paths.  Please make sure text is converted before saving PDF files.

Colour Settings

All Files must be set to CMYK format.  Please make sure there are no spot colours or pantones in your artwork as this can output unexpected results.    As our service is a CMYK 4 colour process we cannot guarantee exact matches to Pantone, Ral or Spot colours.

Colour Matching

Each and every print machine, hand head device, desktop printer will interperature colours differently. Due to print tolerances and the nature of our business we cannot guarantee an exact match to something that is shown on a computer screen.  Most creams, greys and CMYK printed golds can print differently to how they look like on screen.  If you are unsure regarding colours then please ask or quote a pantone reference.   For larger jobs it is advisable to order a minimum order sample of the colour before ordering, but doing this will delay the order for another 5-6 working days.  We can match Pantones if required at an additional charge.   Please contact us prior to ordering as this is costed per job. We cannot guarantee an exact match on Pantone colours due to limitations of the CMYK print process but will try to achieve as close as physically possible.

Artwork Templates

For certain items an artwork template is supplied on the product page.  These templates are only for items which are set to a specified size. Ie feather flags / deckchairs etc.  This will need downloading and your artwork setting on the template prior to ordering.  If using the template please assign a separate layer for the artwork and save as a layered pdf, ai or eps file.  Please embed images and create outlines on the type before saving.

Pole Pockets

When ordering make sure you select the finished overall size of your banner including the pockets. So if you select a 1m wide x 2m height, then we will manufacture the banner to a total the height of 2m including the pockets.

Clear areas on pole pockets

Please make sure that you leave a clear area for your pockets. The term ‘clear area’ means no items of text or logos.  So if you have 150mm flat pockets top and bottom, please don’t let any text or logos to run into these areas. Please note that on a 1500mm flat pocket you will also need to leave an additional 25mm extra for the weld (so 175mm in total. Background colours or images are fine, just no readable text or logos.

Double sided banners

We have special software which flips certain parts of your banners so as to create a seamless pocket on the opposite side. When ordering a double sided banner please just follow the above steps, as the file(s) will need to be set up in the same way. If you require a different image on each side of your double sided banner not a problem, just upload x2 files stating that you require a different image on each side.
For the full comprehensive guide on Pole Pockets click this link please refer to our Pole Pocket Guide here.

Bleed & Crop Marks

Banners, Fabrics and Backdrops

Set your artwork without bleed or crop marks. On banners please remember to leave clear area all around of 4cm so not to conflict with the position of the eyelets.

Decals, Vinyl Prints, Rigid Boards

Please supply all files with 5mm bleed all round.  Please don’t save the files with crop marks.

Cut to shape

Vinyl / static cling

In case of an artwork being cut to shape, we require a 5mm bleed plus a contour cut supplied in a separate layer. The cut line should be a contrasting stroke colour to the artwork and clearly named in an individual layer ‘CutContour’
