Mesh Banners are mainly used for large format outdoor advertising on buildings, scaffolds and fence panels. Holes in the material allow air to pass through making them suitable where wind-loading on structures could be an issue.
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.
Waterproof and UV-stable, our Mesh Banners are printed in full colour and finished to your specifications with hems, eyelets and/or pole pockets.
Our materials are all flame retardant and comply with the latest building regulations.
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.
