5 Tips to Ensure a Perfect Banner Installation on Temporary Fencing

5 Tips to Ensure a Perfect Banner Installation on Temporary Fencing

September 01, 2015 / in Blog / by Mesh Direct / No Comments

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.

6 Reasons Why You Need Corflute Signage

July 15, 2015 / in Blog / by Mesh Direct / No Comments

If you are looking for sturdy but lightweight signage for your building and construction site, event or real estate listing, corflute signage is your best solution.

Here are 6 reasons why you need corflute signage:

1. Cost Effective
Corflute is a budget friendly signage solution for many applications which can replace expensive substrates such as aluminium panels or colour-bond signage. This low-cost form of plastic signage is economical and inexpensive, perfect when needing bulk supplies.

2. Easy Installation
Corflute is a lightweight substrate that can be installed and removed in a flash, anywhere and by anyone. It can be affixed to any flat surface using adhesive tape, glue, screws or nails. It can be easily attached to fencing through metal eyelets in each corner.

3. Customisable
Corflute can be cut to any shape or size and is adaptable for any space. Corflute blanks are 2400mm x 1200mm and sheets can be cut into multiple shapes and sizes. Corflute can be joined at install effectively making enormous signs.

4. Variety of Uses
Corflute is used in a variety of short or long-term projects such as real estate signs, promotional signs, construction site signs, building site signs, compliance signs, tradesman site signage, building site warning signs, security company signs, trade show display signs, in-store promotional, safety, warning signs and first aid signs.

5. High Print Quality
High-resolution digitally printed corflute provides a high impact and visually appealing signage solution. There are no restrictions on the colour you can use in your design which enables you to convey your brand in the best possible light. At Mesh Direct, the messaging is printed directly onto the substrate with a flatbed printer, rather than using vinyl stickers. This produces a perfect print reproduction at a budget price.

6. Durable
Corflute is waterproof and direct to corflute printing means that your message will appear perfectly no matter the weather. Corflute retains ink well and will only start to fade after years of exposure to UV. Corflute board is exceptionally strong, it is impossible to tear by hand and will take a beating when bumped into.

Corflute has many applications and its price and durability make it a very attractive medium. Before considering more expensive alternatives, we urge our clients to look at corflute first.
