What is the difference between the printing quality on Shade Cloth & Banner Mesh?
The difference between the two products lies in the quality of the printing achieved. While it’s quite a significant difference, the upside to the Shade Cloth is that it is very affordable and does the job. It also lets more air through so it creates less wind load on the fencing. Banner Mesh offers a premium looking finish, right through to a full coverage print. The lifespan of the Banner Mesh is greater due to heavyweight construction of the base material, along with the rope edge for added strength when attaching it to the fence.
What material is best suited for a temporary fence?
Shade Cloth, Banner Mesh and Custom Banners are the three options to go for when advertising on a Temporary Fence.

Is there much difference between shade cloth and banner mesh?
Yes, there is a difference. Shade cloth is a traditional PVC shade cloth with little rigid strength and a looser application, whereas the banner mesh products have significantly more structure and print with significantly more impact. Banner mesh can be re-used; it often works out cheaper because you can apply it to various sites (ensure the initial art is correct for re-use or use smaller panels).
Can your products be washed and reused?
Mesh Direct offer a 2-year warranty on banner mesh products as long as they are used correctly. It is estimated that shade cloth will last approximately 12 months if handled and installed correctly.
We have a site with a large perimeter, can I mix and match your products?
Mesh Direct recommend that banner mesh is used on larger sites to maximise the impact the site has on the local area from a selling perspective or for brand building. Additionally, shade cloth can be used to coordinate the site but minimise the impact on budgets. Click here to consult a sales representative.
Do I have to buy in 50m rolls?
All of our shade cloth, both printed and unprinted and banner mesh are available in 50M rolls only. Our premium fencing mesh is available in any custom size from 1M x 1M panels to 90M rolls. Suggested size for fencing applications is 1.6M high (on average 1.8M high) which allows the tension to be applied during installation.
Is shade cloth fire retardant?

Do I need eyelets?
Yes, eyelets allow Shade Cloth and banners to be attached to the fence easily with either clips or cable ties. All of Mesh Direct products have some form of eyelet. Our Shade Cloth has built in reinforced buttonhole the eyelets which are simple to use and allow a certain amount of tension to be applied, and our banner mesh products have metal rust-free metal eyelets which allow significant tension to be applied to allow a wrinkle-free smooth finish – ideal where the “look ” is important.
