Temporary fencing provides the ideal blank canvas to promote your business with the use of a printed banner. However, choosing a printed banner material can be baffling for some. Subtle differences between individual banner materials give a measurable variance to the finished printed product, impacting aesthetic appearance and durability.

So, which temporary fencing cover is ideal for your next project?
Here are some quick facts to get you on the right track when choosing a temporary fence fabric.


Shade Cloth

  • Only available in 50m rolls 1.8m high
  • Perfect for tight budgets
  • Used widely for events
  • Excellent for long runs
  • Very porous, so good for wind-flow but not great for image reproduction
  • Comes with inbuilt button eyelets, ensuring an easy install
  • Available in partial print (white background) making it cheaper
  • Recommended for logos and minimal text

Positives: Low price and lightweight.

Negatives: Single use, needs care to maintain good presentation, can look sloppy if not installed properly, can’t be well tensioned, only available in 50m rolls.

Standard Banner Mesh

  • Only available in 50m rolls 1.6m high
  • Very good image reproduction
  • 9 threads per inch – ideal for windy areas
  • 1.6m height allows for tensioning on temporary fences
  • Stiffer structure means it always presents a flat canvas
  • Good for reuse and can be cut straight without fraying (unlike shade cloth)
  • Comes with supertuff reinforced webbing on edges
  • Rust resistant grommet eyelets
  • We recommend for upmarket logo display and images

Positives: Outstanding price to print quality ratio, structured product which can be tensioned and displays well, durable and reusable, good for windy areas.
