Have you got something to shout about, or a message which you wish to reiterate throughout your town? With the way of the world as it currently stands, outdoor promotion is indeed the way forward. Outdoor banners are a great way to catch the attention of those passers by on their daily walks, but how can you be sure that you have one that is durable for all weather conditions that the UK is likely to throw at us? Allow us to assist…
There is never a simple answer to questions such as these, as the deciding factors depend solely on the location you wish to place the banner, as well as the purpose. Banners standing out in the open will need to be extra-durable to wind and moisture, whereas those under shelter needn’t be as strong. You may also have a design in mind which works best with natural light shining through the banner itself, pointing you in the direction of mesh material. Let’s take a look into the purposes of the highest quality outdoor banner materials.
Mesh banners are produced with layers of vinyl pressed together to form a material with small holes within, allowing high levels of wind to pass through without causing damage to the banner itself. These holes also allow natural light to pass through but are always most effective being viewed from a distance as the small gaps in the mesh material can mute the display of colours and lettering.
Vinyl banners are produced with a blend of ethylene and chlorine, otherwise known as PVC. This material is extremely durable to wind and hail, as well as being highly water repellent whilst also withstanding high levels of UV without fading. Vinyl is available in a range of strengths to ensure that no level of weathering will cause damage.
Fabric banners consist of a lightweight polyester material, allowing them to flow naturally in the wind and give off a softer, more elegant display. However, this material will be unable to withstand winter weather and may only be practical for summer events or if they are able to be stored away during any bad weather.
