Fence Banner Mesh supplied Strait Up Cranes & Rigging with custom sized premium fence mesh panels to enhance the street frontage of their head office and depot.

Project Snapshot

Strait Up Cranes and Rigging is a crane hire operator based in Mudgee, offering crane hire solutions to the Central West and beyond.

With a head office based in Mudgee’s industrial heart, the company wanted to ensure its branding was highly visible on their front fence.

Fence Banner Mesh’s Solution

Fence Banner Mesh supplied a series of custom sized fence mesh panels for Strait Up’s front cyclone fencing and gates. The printed mesh panels were sized to the company’s specifications, to ensure each one fit neatly on the sections of fence at the front of the property.

With a bold and bright coloured design, our premium fence mesh has made the company’s head office much more visible!

About our premium fence mesh

Premium printed shade cloth or banner mesh is an effective solution to create privacy on site and effectively advertise your brand or project. Our standard rolls measure 1.6m or 1.8m high and come in a 50m roll, however, we can cut banners to any size.

Constructed from tough UV treated polyester banner mesh, premium fence fabric has 80% block out with reinforced strip welded or folded edge banding and eyelets every metre for easy installation on temporary fences or other types of site fencing (such as cyclone fencing).

Fence Banner Mesh applies a long-lasting full-colour print to white fabric, giving a bright and high-impact finish. Our banners are printed in house at our Arndell Park warehouse, enabling excellent quality and fast turnaround. Our printed fence mesh is ideal for both elaborate designs as well as simple block printing – no matter how big or colourful your design, it will transfer accurately to our premium mesh printed shade cloth!

Plus, it is a safer choice too, with fire retardant inhibitors added to the underlying PVC composition. Fence Banner Mesh’s Banner Mesh uses a fire retardant within the PVC however this has no specified fire rating.

THE CHALLENGES

Civil contracting firm Diona is working on renewing the Johnstons Creek stormwater channel in Sydney. Owned and managed by Sydney Water, Johnstons Creek is one of Sydney’s earliest purpose-built concrete stormwater drains.

In order to create a revitalised and healthy waterway that the local community can enjoy, Diona is working alongside Sydney Water to naturalise and renew Johnstons Creek. The project involves replacing the concrete base of the stormwater channel and removing the old concrete walls which will be replaced with stabilised banks landscaped with native plants, trees and sandstone.

The existing salt marsh will also be expanded, a wetland will be built to filter stormwater, and an existing footbridge replaced.

In late November 2019, Diona and Sydney Water hosted a successful community open day which resulted in positive feedback, welcoming the naturalisation works.

In order to continue the community goodwill and ensure surrounding residents were kept informed of the progress of the project, the team needed a way to communicate to the public about what was happening at the creek. Large format signage was identified as a budget friendly option.

 

THE SOLUTION: PRINTED FENCE MESH

The project team’s main objective is to improve the overall health of waterway by creating a natural planted stormwater system (or wetland) and maintain continuous access for parkland users during the construction works.

The contractor wanted to communicate this to local residents and chose to use our printed fence mesh customised with the project goals.

Our printed fence mesh enables you to promote your project or brand or product on your perimeter fencing, thereby generating public awareness and delivering an outstanding first impression of your brand to clients and the community.

Printed banner mesh is also known as fence wrap, printed shade cloth and fencing mesh and is typically seen covering hoarding and fences around building sites. Is comes with eyelets making it easy to install on cyclone fencing or other types of fences, and the quality 280gsm fabric offers 20% air breathability. This means 80% of the fabric is printable with your design, offering an outstanding high-impact finish.

Our quality inks are printed onto white base fabric, and provide excellent image fidelity, even for detailed image reproductions such as photographs. As seen here, simple text and colours can often provide the best effect, as it can be read from a long distance.

Our printed fence mesh is UV treated to provide longevity in harsh Australian weather, and when installed correctly it is long lasting and will remain looking great for the length of your project.

Diona and Sydney Water used simple messaging about this project on their mesh, and also took the opportunity to remind residents that water restrictions are in place, noting what they can do around the home to save water.

In total, over 4000 linear metres were installed at this project and similar waterway revitalisation projects around Sydney.

Diona began works in January 2020 and this project is expected to finish in mid 2021.

 

Many civil, construction and infrastructure projects incorporate a large community consultation component. This typically includes interaction with residents and businesses in the surrounding area who will be directly impacted by a project or development.

Community consultation and providing regular, accurate information is key to ensuring that your project runs smoothly and is not fraught with complaints and concerns from people who have not been fully informed of planned construction.

What better way to do this than with large format printed fence mesh!

Communicating to the Public with Fence Mesh

One of the best ways to ensure the community stays informed throughout the entire process, not just initial planning, is to provide a way to communicate the project’s purpose and deliverables at the actual site.

This ensures that all local residents, businesses and also intermittent users of the area can be kept informed of the project as it progresses. Whilst letterbox flyers and online advertising are important, they often do not capture temporary users of the area, such as people who work near the construction site or only visit the area for recreation purposes.

On-site advertising of the project with the help of printed fence mesh ensures that you capture all possible stakeholders, not just those in the nearby streets.

Print Your Messages, Project Goals and Timelines

Fence fabric is a perfect solution for community engagement officers, stakeholder management teams and project managers wishing to convey information about their project.

Providing informative, positive and goal-oriented wording on your fence fabric helps to build momentum for a project, encourages positivity and acceptance, and helps to keep local residents focussed on the final outcome rather than focussing on temporary noise issues or access restrictions.

Likewise, adding projected completion dates to your fence banner keeps the public reassured of the temporary nature of the project.

Tell People Where to Find More Information

Although standard construction site signs contain contact details for the site, often it’s more appropriate to provide a more general contact for the public to find additional information and sign up for updates to the project online.

Including your contact details on printed fence mesh ensures enquiries are directed to a single approved source of information. Plus, the large format printing allows for easy identification of this information by the public, even from a distance or from a moving vehicle.

System used: Premium printed fence fabric
Customer: Sydney Water & Comdain
Project: Waterway Health Improvement Program
Install length: 50m

Project Overview

The 6.9 hectare Milson Park is located in Westmead, cut down the centre by Finlayson Creek. This creek runs through the park and connects to Toongabbie Creek, and unfortunately, both are highly polluted due to the surrounding high-density urban environment.

As part of an overall transformation project encompassing the massive Westmead hospital precinct, the Milson Park area has been identified as an area ripe for renewal. With strong projected growth in the coming years, the area will be turned into a valuable recreational community space.

In a partnership with Sydney Water, Parramatta City Council is working to improve the overall health of the waterway and catchment and work on improved pedestrian and cycleway connections to Parramatta CBD. Stage 1 involves the construction of natural wetlands, increasing connections to ecological areas, and improved pedestrian and cycle connections.

An additional Stage 2 will centre around BBQ and picnic areas, and a potential community garden.

How Printed Project Signage keeps people informed

In this example, the project’s key message was printed in large format on the mesh: ‘We’re building a wetland to improve waterway health and create a better place for the community to enjoy”.

This simple sentence provides a positive and uplifting impression to the local community, and the contact email address and phone number direct people to additional online information.

Quality printed construction mesh that improves the look of your project

For this project, the team chose to use our premium mesh, a tightly woven polypropylene mesh that allows 20% airflow and 80% print coverage. The fence mesh measures 1.8m high making it perfect to fix to any temporary fence or cyclone fencing.

Sydney Water used two 5 metre wide panels of information that were repeated every 10 metres to provide a repetitive pattern that was fixed around the perimeter fencing on site.

This fence mesh is also available in 1.6m wide rolls, in shorter and longer lengths, and in a looser weave style that is particularly suited to exposed or windy sites.

THE PROJECT

Our customer, T1 Constructions, is working on three 12-storey buildings in Sydney’s West. The development known as ‘No 1 Zoe’ comprises 5680 square metres of retail and residential space spread across 12 levels.

With a new Good Luck Supermarket and 16 additional retail shops, this large commercial development in Mount Druitt will help cater to the growing population in the area.

The developers needed a cost-effective way to drum up interest in the development and generate sales enquiries for the luxury apartments.

With a significant area on the lower level enclosed with hoarding, this blank space presented an ideal area to advertise the project with printed logo and photo banners.

 

THE SOLUTION

Fence Banner Mesh helped T1 Constructions promote the project with high-quality photo banners for the hoarding.

By printing their brand and contact details in large format, along with that of development partner GLP Developments, the banners provided an effective way to encourage passers-by to call for more information.

Additionally, the flagship supermarket that is planned for the retail plaza has been advertised in full-colour photos to garner extra interest from the public. This specialty supermarket is a key drawcard for the development and the photorealistic images provide a strong sense of what the finished development will look like.

Fence Banner Mesh supplied 250 metres of printed photo banners for the hoarding, along with 3 smaller two-metre wide banners. Our banner mesh features 80% print coverage with 20% airflow, meaning it is ideal for printing detailed photographs such as the supermarket image shown here.

Excellent detail and crisp images can be achieved with our high-quality inks and fast printing process, which is completed in-house in our Sydney facility.  If you need to print photos on rolls of mesh for your next project, our premium mesh is the ideal choice, providing great quality at an affordable price.

THE PROJECT

The RSPCA in Yagoona in Sydney’s South West has recently been successful in securing a long term lease until 2056. Consequently, the 40-year-old flagship centre, which includes a vet hospital and animal shelter, is undergoing a major upgrade thanks to $12 million in funding announced in the State Government budget.

Each year around 15,000 cats and dogs are adopted through the Yagoona shelter, which is the largest centre in the state. The frequently visited facility is a hub of animal welfare in the Sydney basin, with a large shelter area and fully equipped veterinary clinic open 7 days a week.

Lahey Constructions are working on upgrading the site, which includes an expanded car park to cater for an additional 80 vehicles, plus construction of a new cattery building, adoption centre and shelter rows. The existing administration building will be demolished and a new two-storey RSPCA administration and education centre will be built.

Due to the site being heavily visited by families and pet owners, the busy location required extra signage to help visitors find their way to the vet clinic and animal adoption centre whilst construction was taking place. Extensions to the site caused regular entrances and walkways to be modified, and the RSPCA team needed signage to help visitors find their way around the site.

 

THE SOLUTION

Fence Banner Mesh supplied premium printed mesh banners for the site, specifically designed to help clearly show visitors where to park and where to go for adoptions.

These simple signs are printed on large format banner mesh and are designed for construction sites, to help advertise brands or projects or assist with wayfinding as seen here. Because we print all our banners in-house in our Sydney facility, we can offer fast turnaround and great quality. Plus with no minimum order quantity, it was no fuss for the RSPCA to order two 9 metre long banners and a smaller visitor parking banner.

The Fence Banner Mesh branding team are here to help you customise your fence banners with any design you choose. From simple to complex designs, your brand and logo is sure to look great on our premium fence mesh!

 

THE PROJECT

The North East Link project aims to fix the missing link in Melbourne’s freeway network, slashing travel times between the M80 Ring Road and the Eastern Freeway by up to 35 minutes and taking 15,000 trucks off local roads each day. The project encompasses around 100 above and below ground services that are earmarked for relocation, making way for the new North East Link. During the current Early Works stage, teams of builders are moving power, water, gas, sewer and telecommunications lines so major construction can start from 2021.

At one of the sites in Yallambie, more than 18 months of extensive site investigations in and around Borlase Reserve have helped identify power, water, gas, sewer and telecommunications services that need to be moved.

A site compound has been set up in Borlase Reserve whilst utilities are being moved. The first step in any construction project, the compound provides a safe environment for workers, and contains sheds, parking and plant & equipment.

The project managers needed to screen off the compound in order to lessen the impact on the surrounding residential area, and to help control dust and debris.

Using printed construction fence signage was an ideal solution as it could help to promote the brand and visually tie in this site with the 10 other NEL construction sites in the nearby area.

 

THE SOLUTION

Fence Banner Mesh supplied custom printed wind resistant construction fence signage to the Victorian project, with a simple design showing their logo and website.

A range of different sized banners totalling approximately 200 metres were printed by our in-house banner printing team. The range of custom sized banners ensured that different parts of the compound were neatly screened using the mesh, with perfectly sized banners for each area.

Different sized panels and lengths are no problem for our branding team; including uneven sized panel lengths and different types of repetitions.

For this project, Fence Banner Mesh supplied open weave mesh, a breathable and wind resistant construction fence signage that allows 50% airflow. This type of mesh is ideal for open sites that can be subject to a lot of wind. The fence mesh is made from UV treated polyester and because it allows wind to pass through easily, it will not act as a sail or tear in the wind.

THE PROJECT

Sydney builders Hiban Group have brought their 30+ years of professional building experience to a revolutionary project near Parramatta.

A 41 room boarding house at Harris Park aims to shepherd in a new breed of affordable accommodation, without the stigma of social housing. Hiban Group are working on this modern development, which also features retail tenancies underneath.

This contemporary 8 story building is currently under construction, with Hiban Group choosing to use the scaffolding as a prime advertising opportunity at this high-exposure site. The team needed a compliant scaffolding mesh that could showcase their logo, as well as providing privacy and stopping debris from escaping the site.

 

THE SOLUTION

The project managers used 4 x 50m rolls of custom fire retardant banner mesh, installed on every second level of the build.

Fence Banner Mesh created a bold and high impact printed scaffold mesh with repeats of Hiban’s logo. When fixed to every second level of the scaffolding, the printed scaffold mesh creates a great impact on passersby in this busy area.

Our banner mesh rolls are constructed from tough UV treated polyester mesh with 80% block out and 20% airflow. This provides privacy and an excellent substrate for printing, whilst still allowing for adequate airflow.

The ideal solution for high profile brand exposure, this smooth ‘shade cloth’ style mesh not only improves the image of your construction site, it doubles as an eye-catching marketing tool that delivers an outstanding first impression of your brand to clients.

The easy to handle material is simple to install, with eyelets every metre – simple cable tie the mesh to your perimeter fence, temporary fencing or scaffolding as seen here.

We can print any kind of logo or designs on the mesh, enabling a completely custom look. No matter how intricate or colourful your design, it will transfer accurately to our premium mesh! If you would like to create a great looking construction site, get in touch with our friendly branding team for a fast quote.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Construction firm Coplex is currently working on a residential complex at Jordan Springs. To advertise the ‘Kala’ project’s strong branding, Coplex chose to use our printed shadecloth to cover the security fencing around the site.

Using shadecloth printed with the Kala logo, tagline and colours helps to create brand recognition and adds an element of quality to the build. Passers by are sure to notice the bold and effective branding that ties in with the development’s look and feel in other marketing materials.

 

SOLUTION: PRINTED SHADE CLOTH ROLLS

Simple yet effective, printed shadecloth rolls are an ideal way to advertise a new housing development, construction project, event or festival.

The high-quality mesh that we print on is flatter and less textured than regular garden type shadecloth. Our banner mesh is specifically designed to hold brilliant colour inks and allows you to reproduce images, logos and photos with excellent clarity. This open weave fence mesh allows the breeze to flow through the banner, making sure that it does not flap and act as a sail.

Fence Banner Mesh has years of experience in printing rolls of shade cloth, banner mesh and vinyl and our large format printing presses allow fast production of your order. Our Western Sydney production facility allows us to provide fast turnaround for projects in key development areas in the western suburbs of Sydney.

Printed shadecloth can also be used for smaller projects, with no minimum order quantity. We often print small single fence panel sized banners for sole contractors, as well as printing kilometres of mesh at a time for some of the country’s biggest projects.

Whatever your requirements, our helpful team is here to help you identify the right type of mesh or shade cloth for your site. We’ll help you design your banner with your logo and images for the best possible impact. If you need it, we have a full design service on hand to create a design for you, or you can provide us with your ready-made files for printing.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Fence Banner Mesh supplied 500 metres of custom printed shadecloth to developers Scentre Group, the owners and operators of Westfield shopping centres in Australia. This was used to screen their building site at Westfield Mt Druitt.

This project is valued at $53 million and covers more than 6,500m2, connecting with the existing roof of Westfield Mt Druitt to create an integrated indoor / outdoor area. Additionally, Scentre will redevelop the existing parking area.

Construction of the Westfield Mount Druitt dining and leisure precinct began in late 2019, with completion anticipated at the end of 2020.

Westfield Mt Druitt is a heavily visited local shopping centre, much of which would continue trading whilst the redevelopment took place. The contractors needed a screening fabric to contain the perimeter of the site, ensuring minimal dust and debris would escape. A printed shadecloth or fence mesh would also provide privacy for workers.

Scentre Group also wanted to promote their brand and the Westfield logo, and sought a supplier of printed shadecloth local to Western Sydney to provide a quality product.

 

SOLUTION: PRINTED SHADECOTH

Fence Banner Mesh supplied Scentre Group with 10 rolls of premium printed shade cloth fabric to use on the site security fencing.

Premium printed shadecloth is not a true shadecloth at all; rather it is made from a much higher quality UV treated polyester which offers 80% blockout and 20% airflow. This gives an opaque effect for added privacy, whilst still allowing air to pass through. The premium fence fabric also provides an excellent receptive base for our Absorb-Plus inks, ensuring logos and images are reproduced in brilliant and accurate colour.

Here Scentre Group has used the iconic Westfield logo with their own logo and tagline to great effect, showing that a bold and simple design can offer maximum impact.

Additionally, Fence Banner Mesh supplied 50 crowd control barriers for this project, which were used as a simple and lightweight pedestrian barrier to cordon off no-go areas during the build.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

South Australian builders Built Environs have secured the contract to build the Adelaide Oval Hotel, a $42m project that will see Adelaide Oval become the first stadium in Australia to feature an integrated hotel. This project is planned to be completed before September 2020 in time for the ICC T20 World Cup. The 138 room boutique hotel will be part of the stadium itself, with construction on site beginning in August 2019. Major construction works will begin at the conclusion of the AFL season.

The unique hotel will be built on two elevated pods that follow the external curves of the eastern façade of the stadium. This means it will not encroach on the surrounding parklands or the plaza, unobtrusively fitting into the existing oval structure.

Due to this external wraparound design, a construction zone encircling the oval was fenced off. This presented a great opportunity for Built Environs to advertise their brand on their temporary fencing, and the project managers sought a printed fence mesh supplier in Adelaide.

 

SOLUTION: PRINTED FENCE BANNER MESH

Our branding team supplied a range of fence mesh banners for this Adelaide project. Rather than one long run of fence mesh, Built Environs chose a series of 10 separate pieces ranging from 25m long to just 2.4m long that would fit neatly and seamlessly on the site fencing and scaffolding. This created a neat and professional appearance and allowed the company’s logo to shine.

Complete with custom wind slits every 2 metres, the premium fence fabric provided high print quality whilst also allowing wind to pass through. This prevented the mesh from acting like a sail when it was installed on the temporary fencing.

Our premium fence mesh is strong yet lightweight and comes complete with eyelets allowing it to be quickly fixed to site fencing. Made from a smooth perforated polyester, it typically has 80% print surface with 20% airflow; more with the addition of optional wind slits.

The plain fence mesh fabric provides a receptive base for our Absorb-Plus inks. These bright, opaque inks ensure excellent print reproduction on both simple and intricate designs.
