Banner Mesh Rolls
Banner Mesh Rolls are available in 50m rolls in either 1.6m or 1.8m high. Longer rolls of banner mesh are frequently used on building sites or on the fences of businesses. Banner mesh rolls are a very inexpensive way of branding a business compared to other signs or advertising.
Banner Mesh Rolls come in different densities that determine how much wind can pass through the mesh. The denser the mesh, the better the print result. This also makes it more likely to be affected by the wind. The vast majority of mesh we sell is premium mesh – so called because of the premium print result. The print result is better because of the smaller holes. This type of mesh is called 12 x 12 or 12 threads per inch.
If wind is a concern then clients can choose standard mesh, or 9 x 9 or 9 threads per inch as it is also called. The printing process is identical but the print result is not as good because of the larger perforations
Wind mesh or 6 x 6 is for applications where the wind is very strong. The print result can appear washed out because of the
Vinyl mesh, otherwise known as scrim or builders mesh is a purpose-built material for printing large outdoor signs. Buying banner mesh in 50m lengths is the most economical. Even if you don’t need a full 50m on a building site, banner mesh can be cut into smaller sections with a straight edge and a carpet knife.
We have the best prices for banner mesh rolls and we offer free artwork
If you are looking to wrap a building site then banner mesh 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.
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 mesh banners. For a banner that would look best on a solid background like a wooden hoarding, then consider vinyl banners. If you have a small job or your are concerned with wind then using a smaller banner is beneficial, please check our page on banner mesh panels.

How to Install
How to Install Mesh Banners
To install banner mesh on temporary fencing or cyclone wire fencing follow these steps for a crease-free installation:
- Identify the starting point of the mesh banner and take the banner out of its packaging.
- Leaving it on the roll, attach the top corner loosely with a cable tie.
- On flat installs, ensure the top row is straight and start fixing every second eyelet with cable ties.
- Work for 5-10 metres along the top row before coming back to fix the bottom row. Ensure that the banner is not overly taut and that there is a small amount of play in the cable tie. This will prevent pulling and creases.
- Repeat step 4 until the end of the banner. Then fix the side eyelets, and any missing eyelets along the top and bottom rows. It is important to use all the eyelets to disperse the wind drag as evenly as possible.
- Adjust any cable ties which are too tight. You may need to replace them.
- Snip the tag ends of the cable ties and roll the lock to the rear of the banner for a clean finish.
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.
Q. What is a mesh banner roll?
A. A 50m length of banner mesh.
Q. Is Banner Mesh better to use in windy conditions?
A. Banner Mesh is a much better solution on open fences. The perforations allow wind to travel through the mesh, relieving wind drag on the eyelets.
Q. Can banner mesh handle any wind?
A. Different size perforations are available to counter winds but in most cases premium mesh won’t blow fences over.
Q. Should I cut wind holes in mesh to relieve the wind drag?
A. Wedont recommend it except in extreme wind situations where the predominant wind comes from behind. To be effective the wind holes must be very large. We recommend a more open weave as a more effective solution.
Q. How long do mesh banners last?
A. When it is well looked after, banner mesh can last up to 4 years. Obviously the print will be faded and the material will be quite brittle at this point but it would still be standing.
Q. Can banner mesh rolls be used for multiple jobs?
A. Yes, they can. Roll it up on a core once a job is finished and move it to another site.
