PVC Mesh scaffold 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.
PVC Mesh is also lighter in weight than a traditional frontlit banner (front light banner). Standard PVC banners are not recommended in winds of 30mph+ as hems and eyelets can be ripped out.
PVC Mesh Scaffold Banner Fitting methods
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 Scaffold Banners such as Building Wraps are usually 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.
PVC Mesh scaffolding banner finishing options
As standard, we hem and eyelet our Mesh Banners all round with heavy-duty webbing and metal eyelets. We can manufacture pockets to slide onto the scaffold poles through at no extra cost. If you require scaffold tube pockets, then please specify the pole diameter in your order notes. Pole diameter is typically 50mm or two-inch.
