This medium weight mesh banner is a vinyl coated polyester that makes excellent outdoor banners that reduce wind load by allowing air to pass through the holes in the mesh.
Super Mesh Banner
This vinyl coated polyester mesh produces a partially translucent image for indoor or outdoor use. Great for outdoor banners, building wraps, protective barriers, fence wraps and hanging banners for trade shows and retail display. It reduces the wind load when used outdoors by allowing 37% air flow through the banner, which is much more effective than cutting wind slits in solid banners. Available in widths up to 98".
Longevity of 1-3 years outdoors, 5-20 years indoors.
It's our least expensive mesh. It has good strength to weight ratio. It's much more effective at reducing wind load that cutting wind slits in solid banners. It's flame resistant.
If there is light behind the banner, such as the sun setting, it becomes very difficult to read the banner. It's vinyl so it's not eco-friendly.
Banners on fences or scaffolding where wind load is a concern. Interior banners where a partially transparent look is desired.
Indoor InstallationIf you are ordering your banner with grommets, the best way to hang it is to put some tension on the grommets so the banner is pulled tight and hangs flat. If you are using banner hanging hardware to hang the banner without grommets, follow the instructions that came with your hardware. We sell banner hanging systems that are inexpensive, make for a great looking hanging display, and don't require any special finishing on the banner. Check out the page for Poster & Banner Hangers to learn more about the different banner hanging products we offer.Outdoor InstallationFor outdoor use, grommets are the preferred method to attach a banner to just about any surface. It's even more important to keep outdoor banners under tension, because if there is too much slack in the banner, it can whip around in the wind, and the force that generates will tear up the banner or rip out the grommets, no matter how strong the banner material is. We recommend either attaching the banner with something that gives, such as bungee cords, or checking the banner at regular intervals to adjust the tension and keep it tight. Since bungee cords stretch, you can put the banner under tension and it will be able to flex in the wind without coming loose.For more installations against a wall, such as on the side of a building, you can use screws or bolts with washers through all the grommets, but again, make sure the banner is pulled fairly tight. This type of installation can last for quite a while because the banner is protected by the wall from wind, but you must be sure to take the slack out of the banner.
