Corflute and vinyl signage are two premium products that are guaranteed to deliver an effective advertising message. Both products have outstanding printing quality and are incredibly durable, but serve different purposes for varying projects or events. Therefore, it is crucial to select the right signage solution for your next project and here at Mesh Direct, we are experts in helping make this selection process easier. We’ve compiled the most relevant factors that you should consider when choosing our corflute or vinyl signage.

Construction site signage

If you’re after a stable signage solution for your next construction project, then our vinyl hoardings are the way to go! These banners are attached to wooden panelled hoardings, making them sturdier than a chain link fence. They can be made to any size or length and are ideal for concealing the construction site. Be creative with artwork on your vinyl hoardings to detract the eyes of any passerby from the construction area. Our in-house design team are more than willing to work with you to make your vinyl hoarding visually appealing. Corflute is ideal for smaller signage solutions on a construction site, such as safety signs. They can be placed virtually anywhere and are lightweight for an easy install.

Weather conditions

When ordering your signage solution, weather is a key factor that you should think about if you are advertising outside. If you’re looking for a highly durable and versatile product for outdoor advertising, then vinyl is your ideal option. Vinyl is UV stabilised to ensure a longer lasting print, they are waterproof and, depending on their size can withstand high winds. Corflute, however, is ideal for short to medium term projects as they are waterproof and durable. It is not suitable for use in high wind areas due to its lightweight material.

Outdoor or indoor advertising?

Both corflute and vinyl are good for outdoor use. If you’re coordinating an outdoor event such as a festival, corflute is an ideal product for small signage solutions for directions, menus and safety signs. Vinyl is great for large scale development sites to conceal areas and to make an impact. Our jump form signage solution is great for making a visually striking advertising message and progresses upward as the building grows. Corflute is also great for indoor use, such as in retail centres as safety signs. They are such a versatile product for indoor use and can be placed anywhere.

Large-scale advertising

If you’re looking to make a maximum impact with your advertising, then vinyl is definitely best! Mesh Direct can create any large-scale signage solution for your advertising needs. We have custom sizing available and our in-house design team can help bring your creative ideas to life. Our vinyl billboards have a high print quality, which will ensure your branding stands out!
