Mesh Banner Printing
Outdoor Wind Resistant Mesh Banners
Mesh Banners are mainly used for large format outdoor advertising on buildings, scaffold advertising banners, cafe barriers and printed fence panels. Holes in the material allow air to pass through making them suitable where wind-loading on structures could be an issue.
PVC Mesh Printed to Any Size
We produce smaller windproof banners suitable for fence advertising and scaffolds as well as huge building wraps and giant mesh banners which we weld together in sections. Super-strong, our banners are designed and engineered to stand up to the elements when fitted correctly.
Mesh Banners are ideal for…
- Larger Banners not fixed to a solid backing – such as on lamp post brackets or scaffolding. Mesh reduces the wind loading on structures. Check our range of Scaffold Banners.
- Cafe Banners – Allowing wind to pass through reduces the risk of Cafe Barrier posts being blown over.
- Fence Advertising – By reducing the wind load, fences are less likely to be blown over in high winds.
- Speaker covers at concerts – Mesh banner fabrics are acoustically transparent and are often used at festivals and concerts as speaker stack scrim.
- Tennis Court Windbreaks – Used widely around Europe and the UK to provide wind screening and advertise events and sponsorships.
Full Colour Mesh Banners
We print in CMYK full colour onto Mesh Banner Materials, so your design can include any colours, effects, text, logos or photographs you require.
Waterproof and Fadeproof
Waterproof and UV-stable, our Mesh Banners will continue to look great for years outdoors.
Our materials are all flame retardant and comply with the latest building regulations.
Mesh Banner Finishing
Crucial to the longevity of any mesh banner is the quality and specification of the finishing. As standard we provide high specification and strong hems, eyelets and/or pole pockets.
Our Mesh Banners also work superbly as speaker covers and scrims at concerts, being acoustically transparent.
Mesh Banner vs Vinyl Banner
Mesh Banners, because of the holes in the material, are used wherever wind may be a problem. As they allow wind to pass through they create less force on the fixings and reduce wind-loading on the structure they are fitted to.
Fitting Mesh Banners
Wall Screws – typically long length screws can be used, with large penny washers over the eyelets to protect the banner. It is vital to achieve the proper tension on banners fitted by this method – too loose and the wind will cause the banner to flap and affect hems and eyelets.
Scaffold Poles – Mesh banners can be finished with scaffold pole pockets, allowing you to slide scaffold poles through.
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 cord – this is best done in short sections of 3-5m. This gives the effect of a trampoline on its side, tensions the banner and allows some give for high winds.
