Premium Mesh Banner
PVC Mesh banners are ideal for outside use in high wind areas as the fine mesh allows wind to pass through. Sometimes described as windproof banners. We print and finish Mesh Banners to any size or specification using our super-wide format solvent printing machines.
With thousands of tiny holes in the material, PVC Mesh banners allow air and some light to pass through, which means less resistance to gusts of wind. Standard mesh still has a 70% print area meaning that your graphics remain vibrant. These windproof banners are ideal for high building and scaffolding wraps, cafe banners in windy areas and lamp post banners. Billowing, flapping and the risk of your banner ripping from it’s fixings are all reduced. We also offer specialist building wraps.
Strong, yet lets wind through
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. Remember that a large non-mesh banner acts as a giant sail. Gusts of wind can easily destroy it as well as affect the structure it is fitted to. Larger non-mesh banners are fine as long as they are fitted against a solid surface or within a fixed wall-mounted tension-frame system.
Although they cost the same initially as a standard PVC Banner, Mesh Banners last much longer outdoors in typical British weather conditions – making them cheaper in the long run.

Any Design, Any Size
Our UV and Solvent printing machines print mesh panels at up to 5 metres in width. Larger banners are welded together allowing us to create windproof banners at any size. Design your artwork any way you like, just submit it to us as a CMYK PDF for best results. You can include background images, photographs, logos and text.
Fitting Mesh Banners
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 Mesh 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 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.
Finishing Mesh Banners
As standard we hem and eyelet our Mesh Banners all round with 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. Check our Guide to Pole Pockets on Banners.
As an option you can select Heavy Duty Hems and Eyelets, recommended if your mesh banner is over 10 square metres in size.
