Banner finish / Installation


All vinyl banners need to be displayed properly. It is absolutely imperative that you understand what options are available to you. It is very rare that a banner finished with just ropes and eyelets can be installed looking half decent! How often have you seen banners collapse in a heap because the rope have given way, eyelet have torn or pulled out or supporting poles simply caved in to the pressure exerted on the banner from wind?

 

At Gigantic Signs, most banners we produce allow for rigid poles to be inserted in ‘pockets’ both at top and bottom of the banner. These poles allow for a multitude of hanging options that always display the banner without ‘stress’ wrinkles, distributing the tension evenly across the banner.

 

Sail Track is often used for banner mounting to walls and is the accepted norm for mounting to large billboards. “Kedar” rope is welded to the banner edge and forms a very neat and secure fixing.

Sail track can also be incorporated into large fixings where it is tek screw fixed to long lengths of Duragal or aluminium extrusions. Adjustable shackles on the bottom of the banner will enable the banner to be tensioned and also removed easily when the time comes. This method is great when used for large wall applications or ‘building wraps”

When mounting banners to cyclone wire fences eyelets only can be used. The required tension can be gained for the banner to be wrinkle free. The recommended spacing between eyelets is 500mm. Fixings are best achieved using heavy duty plastic ‘electrical ties’. These are available at most large hardware outlets and electrical supply shops.

 

Wind ‘holes’ in large banners are required when the banner is exposed to wind on both sides. A banner is like a large ‘sail’ in the wind and can generate huge pressure and tension on banner fixtures and fittings. Best to cut “V” or “U” shapes in the banner so when there is no wind, the ‘flap’ is left down to expose the image on the banner. The V or U cut is preferred to a small cut-out hole.

 

Due to the high pressures exerted around these holes, it if best to round off any sharp cuts in the vinyl fabric to help disperse this pressure and minimize the possibility of the vinyl tearing further along the cut.

 

Remember, you pay good money for your banner to promote your product, service or event. Make sure you are able to present it to the public in the best way possible – flat and wrinkle free. Don’t accept eyelets and ropes as the ‘only’ option!

 

You don’t want your banner to look like this!  - Let us know where your banner is to be secured so we can suggest the best fixing method.                            Plan ahead so we can build in the right fixings.
