5 Tips to Ensure a Perfect Banner Installation on Temporary Fencing

Your beautifully printed banner mesh has cost you a bit of money but is now all set to repay you in conveying your message – you just need to install it. Installing banners on fencing is usually a fairly simple task if you know some basic tips and the cornerstone of those tips is tension. A banner that is crooked, sagging or flapping in the breeze can be more damaging than helpful, displaying a lack of care and sloppiness.

Here are some simple tips to ensure you get the best visual result from your next installation:

  1. Purchase the correct substrate and size for your project. We recommend you always leave some space between the height of the fence and the vertical banner dimension. Our knowledgeable sales consultants will guide you to pick an ideal size and substrate depending on various factors such as wind load, size of fencing, how long you would like to use the banner for etc.
  2. Plan the installation when you can have someone else to help you and weather conditions are favourable.
  3. Use the correct installation method. Cable ties should be interlaced through the grommets and fencing.
  4. The banner should be tightened to the perfect tension ensuring your message displays on a flat canvas
  5. Maintain your banner by regularly checking the tension and making any adjustments as necessary.
