PVC Mesh Banners
Outdoor mesh banners are the ideal solution for advertising on events, festivals or anywhere where large format printing can be utilised. Vinyl mesh banners, otherwise known as scrim or construction mesh banner is a purpose-built material for printing large outdoor signs. Best mesh advertising banners in Australia.
We are mesh banner printing specialists so our pricing is very competitive and our quality second to none.
If you are looking to wrap a building site then printed fence mesh banner is the ideal material. It has a very high burst strength so building site materials don’t pierce it. It allows the wind to pass through it whilst still being opaque and hiding the building works.
PVC mesh banner is very durable and the print will last up 2-3 years. Businesses are often hidden from the street with just a small sign to advertise. Mesh fence banners bring attention to the business hidden behind the fence. They can make an enormous difference in brand association.
Printed PVC banners can also be used for balcony or scaffold banners. Construction site banners are very popular because of their strength and longevity. We can print mesh up to 5m wide and 50m long.
We offer a number of other types of mesh from our facilities in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. For events or situations where mesh banners will be used repeatedly in different locations, we suggest using fabric banners. For a banner that would look best on a solid background like a wooden hoarding, then consider vinyl banners.
Types of Banner Mesh
There are a few variations of mesh banner which suit different applications. Banner mesh opacity is measured in threads per inch (tpi), the lower the tpi, the lighter the weave.
12 tpi (12×12)mesh is considered to be the premium substrate. It is the least see-through so images print beautifully. It is considered 80% mesh, 20% perforation so it not ideal in strong wind situations.
9 threads per inch (9×9) is what we call standard banner mesh. It is a great mix of opacity and perforations, allowing more wind through but maintaining strong image representation. It is also cheaper than premium mesh.
6 tpi (6×6) is called air mesh. It has about 50% opacity. The print can look a little washed out but the air passes through the mesh best.
How To Install
Installation of smaller builders mesh panels is relatively easy:
- Remove the printed mesh banner from its packaging keeping the printed side face up
- Use cable ties to fasten the top two corners. We recommend black cable ties that have a width of at least 7.5mm
- Do not worry about tensioning at this stage. Extend the banner to its full length.
- Use cable ties to work your way around all of the eyelets on the banner. It is best to leave a little slack so that the banner is not overly tight and creased. The wind will naturally billow out the banner so it looks evenly installed.
- Reposition the mesh if any eyelets are pulling the banner. The finish should be smooth and even, not crimped and creased.
- Use all the eyelets. This will be important in high winds.
- If you are using non reusable cable ties, use garden shears to trim the tag end and leave a clean finish. If you are using reusable cable ties then spin the tag end around the back of the banner.
- Once installed, check on your mesh every few months or so as cable ties do break when exposed to UV and wind. Replace any cable ties or double up in high wind areas. We do not recommend wire or stainless steel cable ties. It is preferable to break a cable tie than pull an eyelet out of the mesh.
Please be aware that winds of over 60kmph can damage mesh banners. If you are expecting an extreme weather event then you may be better of temporarily removing the mesh from the fence.
- Extremely durable banner material that lasts for upto 5 years outdoors.
- Gives a rigid like appearance even when installed on wire fences which means that graphics display incredibly well.
- Relatively inexpensive and great value for money.
- Perforations in the banner allows wind to pass through without putting undue strain on the fence or on the eyelets
- Different types of mesh banner signs are available for areas with higher winds
- Easy to install even by non-professionals
Yes, our panels can be fully customised. When measuring your temp fence panel, allow for the banner to sit inside the frame. This will give you the best fit.
Mesh banners designed to the shape of temporary fence panels perform far better in the wind than longer banners. There is a space in between each panel of a temp fence. This space allows wind to escape around the mesh, greatly lessening the wind loading on the banner. Fences might still blow over but we rarely see damage to eyelets caused by winds.
They are more expensive than longer banners because of the man-hours involved with hemming and eyeleting them. They can be much better value though. They are much better in the wind and unlikely to be damaged. They also give clients more flexibility in changing their message without changing their entire banner.
Wind holes or wind slits are mostly ineffective against strong winds. In cases where strong persistent winds are present wind holes can be cut in situ with the prevailing wind coming from behind the banner. There is no point in cutting wind holes in banners where the wind is coming front onto the banner.
It will last for years if you use the vinyl mesh banner indoors. If the product is used outdoors full-time, we estimate that it will last at least 6 months. The amount of UV exposure a fabric receives will determine how quickly it deteriorates.
