When Do I Use Mesh Banners?
Whether you order traditional PVC banners or Mesh Banners is normally dependent on the position of your banner and what it is being fixed to. We've compiled a list to help you make your decision.
Use Mesh banners if:
- Your banner is large (greater than 5 square metres) and cannot be fixed flat to a surface which will shield your banner from behind.
- You are positioning your banner in exposed areas, such as coastal or open areas.
- You are ordering lamppost banners which are only supported with top and bottom rails.
- You would like to reduce weight and stress to the structure you are fixing your banner to.
- You would like a longer term solution - in some cases, using mesh banners will alleviate wind-load bearing and prolong the life of the banner.
Mesh Scaffold Banners
The mesh banner material is used mostly on Heras fencing and scaffolding. These light weight, temporary structures require a perforated printed banner material to ensure the structure isn't put under undue stress from windy weather conditions. Some councils may also insist on mesh substrates being used when attaching lamppost banners to council lampposts, depending on the size of the graphic. The size of the graphic determines the wind-load bearing which is greatly reduced by the use of mesh banner materials.

Advice on Designing Mesh Banners
If you are designing your own mesh banner, there are a couple of things to to take into account.
Because the mesh substrate is made up of a pvc which has thousands of tiny holes, small text may become illegible . Try to keep your point size above 24, but obviously the bigger the better.
The banner will also have eyelets and hem around the edges. The centre of the eyelets being approximately 38mm from the edge. It would be wise to keep important text or logo's well away from these areas.
