More Information »

Our online prices on mesh building wraps are based on standard finishing of hem and eyelets or reinforced hem and eyelets around the outer perimeter of the banner.  On large banners, extra pockets sewn into the reverse of the banner can be added at an additional cost.  These pockets will wrap around the scaffolding uprights giving your banner additional anchor points.

Building Wraps are a superb outdoor advertising solution used 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. These are ideal to attach to a large scale scaffolding structure and are also known as scaffold wraps.

Digitally printed 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 front light banner.

Regular 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 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. An old traditional way would be to Stitch banners. While we still offer to sew (commonly on fabric materials), we more commonly use high-frequency welding on our Building Wrap Mesh banners. Welding gives a much stronger, more predictable and more aesthetically pleasing finish than stitching.

Omega Pockets

On large building wraps and giant building banners, we advise having fixing points every 3-5 metres. Positions of these fixing points would usually be on the supporting upright scaffold tubes. 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 cord.

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 an ideal solution for 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 First step would be to fit fixing points.
  • 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 would run though eye bolts approximately 300mm outside the banner. Once the wire is tensioned, the banner can be fitted to the cable using a zig-zag of bungee shock cord – easier in short sections of 4-5m. The rope gives the effect of a trampoline on its side, tensions the banner and allows some give for high winds.

Frequently Asked Questions »

What's the maximum size building wrap you can print?

We produce building wrap mesh vinyl banners to any size, Our machines print onto 5m wide rolls and sections of mesh are welded together to create bigger banners.

Do I need reinforced hems?

Reinforced hems are a special reinforced webbing welded into the hem which is added to each edge of the banner. This webbing gives the edges added strength for extra durability.Because building wraps are usually very large banners we highly recommend having a reinforced hem. This is an optional extra on the finishing section when ordering.

What is the recommended fixing methods to scaffolding?

Hem and Eyelets are a good option which allows you to use cable ties or bungee ties. For larger banners we recommend hem & eyelets with reinforced hem and then fasten to the scaffold using long bungee cord. Many installers weave the cord in zig zag formation through the eyelets and onto the frame of the scaffold.

Some installations require omega pockets to the rear of the banner.  This is sleeve that is welded to the back to allow fixing to vertical scaffold tubes. This requires a technical drawing from you to show the spacing and locations of the vertical tubes. If you require omega pockets please email your request through with accurate drawings. It is important to measure fixing area accurately prior to ordering.

You offer two types of PVC mesh, Which is used for building wraps?

As standard we use 330gsm Mesh PVC however you can also request to have these manufactured using our 235gsm Air Mesh. This can be ordered on the Air Mesh product page or email your request through if you need non standard finishing.

How long is delivery?

Typically turnaround is 5-6 working days.  Some very large building wraps may require more production time so this could add a day or two onto this.

How far apart are the eyelets placed

As standard we place eyelets every 500mm around the hem. We can put them closer together on request at no additional cost.

What type of eyelets do you use?

All banners are eyeleted using nickel plated silver eyelets which have a 12mm hole.

Can I have a fire certificate?

Buying banners in confidence

You can buy from Banner World with confidence. Your job will go through several checks before manufacture. Firstly when your job comes in, we check all your uploaded files and cross-reference each file against your order. At this point, if we see that artwork is incorrect or if there is a file missing we will contact you to request new artwork. Most of our banners and fabrics are manufactured at our large print factory in Europe. Our standard turnaround on items is 5-6 working days for delivery. Even though most of our ordering system has been automated, we still carry out several manual checks before processing your order. If at any point we have a question or a problem with your order you will be contacted before manufacturing.

Our processes

Please read the information below on how your order is processed. Each order goes through several checks before printing. Our file checking service is standard procedure on all orders. Checking your files means that you can place your order in confidence, knowing that we will check to make sure your order and corresponding artwork match and are correct. Anything we are not sure that we will contact you before proceeding.

What is Our Initial checking service?

When you place an online order, we will cross-reference your artwork against your order. At this point, we will check that the artwork sizes and file type match the order. We will make sure we have the correct number of artwork files for the job. At this stage, if anything appears to be incorrect, we will place the order on hold and contact you immediately.

How do we process your order?

Once we are happy with your order, we will then process it. We collate all the information for each job, including finishing and material type. The job information is then sent with your artwork to the pre-press department. Pre-press is where we will create and prepare your job for printing.

Our Pre Press and second checking service.

Pre-press refers to the stage before printing. Here your artwork is converted into the correct format for our machines and finishing processes. At this point, if something is spotted which isn’t correct or if there is a problem we will again contact you.

How do we print and track your order through the factory?

Your job is now batched together with other items on the same material. Each item has assigned to it a unique code. The code is used to track the order through our factory. The information is used to check the material, quantity and finishing information on the item. The order then goes through our print presses.

How do we finish your printed items?

Every job we produce is different to the next, whether it be size, material, shape or finishing. Your printed items will be finished as requested on your order. We automate as much of the finishing as possible, cutting down on labour costs and passing on the savings to you. The Prepress data is inputted into parts of our finishing equipment. Your graphics are now finished to your custom requirements. Each printed product is set up differently for each type of finishing process. A banner that has hem and eyelets will be manufactured and produced in a different way to a flag with a pole pocket.

Our standard shipping will travel via road and sea to reach the UK. We do offer a faster 1-day shipping method which is our 4-day turnaround service. The fast turnaround service is expensive on low-value bulky orders and is more cost-effective on higher volume jobs. Items to the US and other worldwide destinations will take longer to be delivered. For items going to Ireland, the Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Scottish highlands etc. please add an extra day onto delivery times
