Fence Banner Mesh offers builders and developers a complete design and print service.
This means you can always get excellent quality banner mesh without the headaches of managing design, waiting on lengthy shipping times, or having to store bulk rolls of mesh.
We do it all for you!
Everything you need for banner mesh: all under one roof
The ordering and design process with us is seamless, with everything done in-house by our talented branding team in Sydney. Getting your design right is easy and hassle-free with our design service. We help builders and developers create a stand-out design that shows off their project, brand or logo.
Plus, not only do we offer a design service, but we also stock large quantities of plain white mesh allowing us to print long runs at short notice on our in-house printing presses. Our banner printing machines are running 24/7 to ensure that orders are shipped out fast to sites all over Australia.
And we don’t outsource our work to overseas printers: all our printing is done in house in Sydney using vinyl cutting printers, screen printers, pad printers and digital printers.
With a high level of control over the whole process, we can ensure your custom print orders are processed in the fastest time possible, and that you always get a quality result.
And, for builders that use a lot of mesh, we can offer bulk savings and even warehouse additional rolls for you so they are always ready to go when you set up a new site.
An easy, 5 step process
1. Place your order by giving our friendly customer service team a call or emailing us with the amount of mesh you need.
2. Send us your existing design if you have one, or simply email us your logo and colours and we’ll design a striking, high-impact image to enhance your building site. Our in-house design team will help you get the best result that reflects your company’s professionalism and attention to detail.
3. Choose which type of mesh you need: open weave is best for windy areas and gives high print quality whilst allowing air to pass through easily. Premium banner mesh has a tighter weave and is better for photorealistic image reproduction.
4. Once you’ve approved your design we print it, finish it, add eyelets, hem the edges, add wind slits if you need them, and make any other customisations you require.
5. Your order is produced and delivered to site quickly, so you can install your banner mesh on your temporary fencing or cyclone fencing. Or, choose to have us store your rolls safely till you need them for your next job.
Buy banner mesh in bulk and save
Banner mesh is long-lasting but in tough environments like building sites, it does wear out after a couple of years of regular use. If you go through a lot of mesh or like to replace your mesh regularly so it always looks like new, we recommend buying in bulk.
Not only does this save you money with our bulk banner mesh pricing, but you’ll also ensure you have the same printed image across multiple rolls of mesh – a key consideration if you have multiple sites and want to make sure your branding is consistent.
We can store it for you so you’ll always be able to get custom banner mesh delivered to your site, fast! This means you don’t have to worry about waiting times to reprint, or storing bulk rolls of mesh at your depot and keeping them clean and looking good.
We’ll store your ready-made banner mesh rolls in our warehouses around Australia, clean and protected, ready for you to quickly access whenever you need them.
How it works
– We print up a bulk run of banner mesh
– The rolls are held in stock at our warehouses
– You request rolls to be dispatched directly to site as needed
– Saves you on freight, storage space and removes the stress of getting mesh printed at late notice!
Take the hassle out of branding your building site
Cut out the middle man – go direct and save! Call the friendly branding team at Fence Banner Mesh and let us take care of your branding needs from start to finish.
Fence banner mesh or banner wraps not only make your site look great, they also help promote your brand or project, as well as keeping dust and debris from escaping into nearby businesses and homes. And if you look after them, you can use them over and over at different projects and work sites.
Here’s how to keep your fence mesh looking good and prevent it from being ripped and torn.
Buy the right type of fence banner mesh
Fence Banner Mesh supplies two styles of printed fence mesh: premium banner mesh and open weave banner mesh. The main differences between the fabrics we use are how tight the weave is, and therefore how high the resulting print quality is.
Also, the difference in weave affects the wind resistance of the fabric and makes each type suitable for different environments.
Open weave mesh is, as the name suggests, a fabric that is more loosely woven with small openings in the weave. This open construction still provides a high quality print, but it has less of a ‘block out’ effect, so the fabric is semi see-through. Therefore it is not as effective as a privacy screen if you are intending to use it as a means of blocking views of your site. If you are intending to use banner mesh as an anti-gawk mesh, then the premium version with a higher block out effect may be more suitable.
To put it another way – premium mesh is 80% block out with 20% airflow, whereas open weave mesh is 50% block out with 50% airflow.
Further to this, open weave mesh is more effective at allowing wind to pass through. Installing tightly woven mesh in a windy environment can cause it to act like a sail, adding strain on the banner. The added pressure will increase the chance of rips, tears, and pulling around the eyelets. For this reason, open weave mesh is recommended for high wind areas or for exposed coastal projects.
Key takeaway: buying open weave mesh is the right way to go if you have a windy or exposed site. This will allow wind to pass through and stop the weather from ruining your mesh.
Install your fence wraps correctly
Banner wraps are easy to install onto most types of temporary fencing, cyclone fencing or even hoarding.
Your roll of banner mesh will arrive wrapped in plastic for protection. Once you receive it on site, it is straightforward to unroll it along your temporary fence, attaching it as you go. Our banner mesh comes hemmed and eyeleted for quick and easy installation.
Simply fix the banner mesh or scrim to fence with cable ties, tie wire or rope. The eyelets increase the life of the banner by reducing rips and tears in high wind situations. Likewise, eyelets provide a rugged fixing point for long-term installations.
Installation can be done by one person, but the process is quicker and easier with a colleague to help you out.

Pantone colours vs CMYK colours
Whether you plan to supply us with logos and images to produce a design for you or provide ready to print artwork, this article will help you understand the differences in the end product that can occur due to the printing process particularly regarding the use of CMYK vs Pantone colours.
When you’re using printed banner mesh to promote your business or project, you want it to look great!
So ensuring you understand how your logo and images will translate onto mesh during the printing process is an important first step.
What is printed banner mesh?
Printed banner mesh is generally used to advertise your project or brand. It’s also commonly used as a privacy or anti-gawking screen to limit the amount of dust and debris being emitted from a work site.
Fence Banner Mesh is a leading printer of large format banner mesh for Australian businesses. We print everything from small banners to right through to kilometres of mesh for some of the country’s biggest infrastructure projects.
Naturally, if you’re using banner mesh to showcase your brand, you want to ensure that your logo and images are reproduced as closely as possible to the original. So, here’s an outline of our printing process, print specifications and how to get the best results on your full colour printed mesh.
How your corporate design will translate to printed mesh
There are two types of mesh available – premium or open weave (which allows more air to pass through).
Premium banner mesh gives very high print quality because 80% of its surface is printable. This means the image translates with excellent quality onto the plain white mesh substrate.
Open weave mesh has only 50% surface area to print on, however, the overall effect especially with bold block designs and colours is often nearly as good as premium mesh.
Your particular design or logo might lend itself to a certain type of mesh – feel free to send your images through and our design consultants can offer advice. Likewise, particular colours may look better on a specific type of mesh, so get in touch with our team for advice on the best choice for your project.
Our mesh printing process
Many of our clients choose a full colour print which is applied to the plain white mesh in our printing facility. You can also choose to have a simple logo or single image repeated on the existing plain white background.
Our printing press uses a CMYK printing process, where pink, yellow, blue and black inks are overprinted to form all colours of the rainbow. We use Absorb-Plus inks which offer vibrant colour and excellent longevity in outdoor conditions.
Naturally, however, the sun’s ultraviolet rays will affect the brightness and saturation of colours over time, so the mesh will always look it’s best when new. Although banner mesh is UV treated for longevity, it is a consumable item and it will eventually wear and the fade slightly, especially when used in demanding conditions such as on construction sites.
Our premium banner mesh can last up to 3 years on site, and our open weave mesh lasts up to 1 year. When looked after well, the mesh can often be used for many projects, plus it is easy to roll up and use over and over at different sites.
Colour differences in Pantone vs CMYK colours
CMYK is another name for four colour or full-colour printing.
It stands for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black and is the type of printing you’d typically find in an office printer. The printer – whether it be printing on paper or huge rolls of banner mesh – will print different concentrations of the four colours to create full-colour images.
Pantone printing however uses exact trademarked Pantone colours of inks and requires a lot of additional setup and configuration of a printing press.
For this reason, many banner mesh printers use the more cost-effective CMYK processes to keep prices down for customers. The trade-off is a very slight difference in the colour of the end product, which can be more noticeable on some images than on others.
In most cases, Pantone or spot colours can be achieved with a CMYK process but if you have extremely bright colours in your logo or you’ve had problems with other printing suppliers in the past, we recommend you give our team a call first.
We can do our best to match your Pantone colours, but we can’t guarantee an absolutely perfect match. We will endeavour to print as close as possible to your corporate colour using our CMYK printing press.
Unfortunately, we cannot use spot colours, RGB or Pantone colours in their original state, so the best course of action is for you to supply your artwork converted to CMYK. This will also help ensure fast turnaround and the best adherence to your original colours.
Why order from Fence Banner Mesh?
Mesh provides privacy and security, screening off expensive equipment and small items on your building site that could be subject to theft. Many workplace safety authorities require contractors to control dust and debris on site, and banner mesh is a cheap and effective way to meet these requirements.
And of course, the ability to print striking full colour graphics on banner mesh means you’ve got a huge ready-made canvas to advertise your project.
If you’d like to find out more about banner mesh printing, give our friendly branding team a call today.
Although it’s designed to provide privacy and security, your construction site fence can be transformed into a massive billboard with printed shade cloth rolls. Simply follow these key tips:
Use all that blank space!
Your temporary fence is a massive blank canvas – imagine what it can look like covered in your logo!
Printed shade cloth or banner mesh is a fantastic solution that kills two birds with one stone: you screen your site for privacy and dust control – AND you have a massive area to use for high impact, large-format advertising!
Custom printed shade cloth rolls are cheaper than you think, and they can be reused on multiple sites by simply rolling them up and packing them away ready for the next job.
It has a long life span, but when your mesh eventually gets worn out you can easily replace it, so whether you’re working on a short term or long term project, it’s a great investment to help advertise your brand and generate new business in the local area. It’s easy to get a great design and look, even if you’re not a designer! Take a look at this great article on things to consider when designing the images for your printed shade cloth rolls.
Keep it tidy!
Construction professionals that have a properly installed and well-finished perimeter fence are definitely going to project a better image than builders with a messy, run-down appearance.
Ensure you set up and install your temporary fence the right way so that it resists blowing over in the wind, breaking or being bent out of shape. Then, when it’s set up, ensure it is level, properly braced, and that each panel is clamped together.
Setting up your fencing properly the first time around will save you hassles in the long run. Take a minute to get it right, and reap the rewards of advertising your business as a professional firm with excellent attention to detail!

Our banner mesh fence fabric is a strong yet lightweight shadecloth that is available in different fabric weights. This woven polypropylene mesh is highly receptive to large format printing, resulting in brilliantly coloured, high impact advertising on your temporary fence.
Banner mesh is often seen on temporary fencing and perimeter fences of new housing developments, construction sites, redevelopment projects and all sorts of other construction jobs. It is also commonly used for events such as sales, for example at a car dealership or big box retail store.
How does fence fabric handle the wind?
Wind resistance is a key factor in the durability and lifespan of banner mesh. Installing tight weave mesh in a windy environment can act like a sail, adding strain on the banner. The added pressure will increase the chance of rips, tears, and pulling around the eyelets.
Some sites, especially in coastal or rural areas, can be susceptible to strong winds and wild weather. However, when you choose the right mesh for the job and it is installed properly, fence fabric should stand up to windy weather.
What is the best banner mesh for windy areas?
One particular type of banner mesh – our open weave mesh – is designed to be more wind resistant. This open weave type has 50% blockout and 50% airflow. It is made from a looser weave than our premium banner mesh, which has only 20% airflow.
The loose weave mesh enables the wind to pass through without causing it to act as a sail. It also reduces the chances of the fence mesh catching the wind and causing your temporary fencing to tip over.
Open weave banner mesh specifications
– 50% airflow
– 50% blockout
– 1.6m high
– 50m rolls as standard
– UV treated polyester mesh
Where can I buy custom printed banner mesh?
Fence Banner Mesh has been supplying printed fence fabric to Australian businesses for many years. We run our own printing presses at our Sydney production facility, and we ship everywhere around the country.
Our standard banner mesh rolls measure 50 metres long, however, it’s easy to order smaller quantities – or much larger quantities!
New Year, New Look: Printed Mesh for Your EOFY Sales
Promoting your end of financial year sales with printed shade cloth is a great way to advertise to your local customer base!
Printed shade cloth is commonly used around construction sites, new residential developments and on other large-format perimeter fences. However, it’s also a cheap and effective way to market your business, advertise a sale or promote your brand.
Using a fresh roll of printed shade cloth to market your end of year sales is affordable and easy. It doesn’t take long for our printing specialists in Western Sydney to print your custom mesh with usually just a week or so lead time. This means you can fix your custom printed shade cloth mesh to your fence or building fast, advertising great deals to your customers for the longest possible time period. (Please make sure you get in touch to see what our current accurate lead time is as our workload can fluctuate).
Why is printed shade cloth better?
In contrast to large rigid signs, mesh banners are really easy to handle. You can roll them up and store them away for the next sale or event, and they can last a number of years if you take good care of them. This means printed banner mesh works out to be a highly cost-effective advertising medium.
The initial outlay is relatively cheap, and you can customise the graphics completely to suit your own needs. Plus the print quality is excellent for both huge graphics and even more intricate images.
What kind of mesh is best for your business?
Supplied in standard rolls measuring 50 metres long, banner mesh enables businesses to advertise huge graphics, text and logos. Fence Banner Mesh has no minimum order quantity so even if you only need 10 metres of mesh, we can help you out.
We are very flexible with print lengths and can supply the exact amount of banner mesh you require for your individual business.
Our mesh comes in two types – open weave and premium. Open weave mesh allows 50% of the air to flow through, and the premium mesh allows 20%.
The 50% open weave mesh banner rolls are great for sites in very windy locations. This open weave style allows the wind to pass through without the mesh acting as a sail.
The premium mesh has a tighter weave and therefore more print area, with 80% blockout and 20% airflow. This is suitable for most locations and provides a slightly better result for more detailed prints such as gradients, photographs, fine details, and thin lines.
Made from a quality woven polypropylene mesh, both styles have a very smooth finish.
Excellent large format print quality
Advertising your tax time sales to local customers is easy with our custom printed shade cloth.
Both our premium mesh and open weave mesh ensure high visibility advertising, with mesh heights of either 1.6 metres or 1.8 metres. You can print a huge message, discount or sale sign and have it work for you 24/7.

Printed shade cloth is a great addition to your construction site. It’s cheap, makes your site private and increases security, and keeps dust and dirt at bay.

Three reasons to use printed shade cloth:
1. Shade cloth is great for cheap advertising
This brightly coloured shadecloth is printed with your customised logo, pictures, brand or contact details. This means you can turn your site fencing into a huge advertising wall using cheap printed shade cloth! It doesn’t last forever, but it doesn’t have to: your project can benefit from massive marketing messages on your fence, without the expense of high-quality professional signs that are made to last for years and years.
2. It creates privacy and screening for your site
Covering your security fencing in printed shade cloth keeps pedestrians from looking into your site, and adds to security and privacy. It can also ensure motorists keep their eyes on the road if your site runs alongside a freeway or major highway, thereby creating a safer environment for all. Our open weave shade cloth comes complete with eyelets in the top edge so you can easily zip tie or cable tie it to any kind of temporary fencing or site fencing.
3. It helps you meet regulations
Ensure you meet your dust control and OHS requirements for the local Council. Most Councils require some type of shade cloth or mesh covering around building sites to screen out dust and debris. Our printed construction shade cloth is purpose-designed to be better quality than your regular garden variety shadecloth. It is made from a smoother type of polyester mesh and offers 50% blockout and 50% airflow. This means it keeps dust, dirt and construction site debris in your site and not spread around the neighborhood, so you are not liable for polluting the area. It is also perforated to allow the wind to pass through without excess debris escaping.
Plus, it’s not just for construction and building sites – printed shade cloth or banner mesh can be fixed with cable ties to all types of fences. Whether you’ve got a car yard, industrial unit, factory, or even a big event coming up, a roll of printed shade cloth for your fence will improve the look of your business.

3 ways to make an impact with scrim
Banner mesh, fence mesh or printed mesh is a simple yet effective way to promote your brand, message or project. A large-format sign printed on material similar to shadecloth is sure to catch the eye of passers-by and promote your business 24/7.
However, it pays to keep a few key points in mind when you are designing your printed mesh. Things like the choice of colours, graphics or just the overall layout of your design can make a difference to how effective your advertising message is.
Here are our top three key tips to get the maximum out of your printed mesh.
Some brands naturally have very bold, heavy logos that will stand out no matter how they are placed. On the other hand, some companies have quite subtle logos or lightweight type in their logo.
Whilst you may not have the ability to change your logo, you can work around it to produce the best effect. Think about some of the general principles of design: these include repetition, scale, contrast and the use of white space. If you have quite a delicate logo, it may pay off to print it at a large size, or repeat it in a pattern.
If you haven’t designed printed mesh before, think about other mesh you have seen or even billboards near the roadside: what do you find most effective? Clear messages with just a couple of words or one or two large photos are often the most successful ads.
However printed scrim isn’t always hung around a roadside construction site: if your mesh is likely to be seen by pedestrians more than motorists, then more intricate messages would be more appropriate, as pedestrians will be travelling more slowly and have more time to absorb your advertising.
It seems obvious to choose your corporate colours, however sometimes if you have pastel or lighter colours, or a wide range of colours in your logo, it could be a better choice to go for large block colours.
Or, why not choose one main colour from your corporate colour palette and use contrast to your advantage? This can be effective too if you have to represent sponsors, partners or other brands on your mesh.
Sometimes, it pays to use as much colour as possible! Fence Banner Mesh’s printed scrim is very receptive to our HP printing inks and a very colourful or intricate design can also be effective when placed in the right location.
Keep it simple
Remember that in most cases, people will be viewing your printed mesh from a car as they pass by, and therefore will have just a second or two for your brand or message to sink in.
A clear, simple, bold message is often the most effective solution. You could also take advantage of an alternating pattern, for example, a large logo across a few metres of mesh, followed by a panel that has more detailed information (eg: a web address, or other partner logos).
This gives you the best of both worlds: you are supporting other companies that are involved in the project, but you are also conveying your brand in a bold and unmistakable way.

What is Banner Mesh?
Banner Mesh is a banner created from polyester woven mesh fabric. It has similar properties to printed shade cloth, however, the smooth woven design of banner mesh allows for high-quality digital printing, whilst allowing air to flow through it.
Comparing banner material is not as easy as simply choosing the one that looks best. Consider the application of the banner and where it will be installed or displayed.
Airflow is the biggest difference between banner materials. Banners come in a closed weave or an open weave mesh, as well as a solid vinyl variety.
The closed weave or tight-knit offers high privacy with 80% block-out. This closed weave variety provides better print quality but restricts the airflow. The addition of wind slits can be provided for the manufacturing process, however, a better option is our open weave mesh. This variety is a better choice for high-wind or coastal areas.
Both open and closed weave mesh banners are made from UV treated polyester. They are easy to handle and install and help you comply with your OH&S regulations by reducing dust and debris from escaping from your site.
What are PVC Vinyl Banners?
Vinyl banners differ from banner mesh, in that they are printed on a heavyweight PVC vinyl. The solid sheet design means that the banner has no airflow properties, and therefore this type of banner is not recommended for temporary fencing or other mesh fences in windy areas. Heavy winds on a vinyl banner could cause the fencing to blow over if it is not braced correctly.
Where they shine however is on building signage, hoarding signage and other print applications where you need an excellent quality, high-fidelity print. They can be installed indoors or outdoors as building wraps or branded signage.
Vinyl banners are UV treated to reduce print fade and have a material weight of 440 gsm. Vinyl allows for incredible print quality, however, the open and closed weave mesh still provide excellent print quality.
How do I know which banner mesh is right for me?
Airflow and print quality are the main differences that can help you decided which type of mesh banner is best for your site. However, the friendly team at Fence Banner Mesh is happy to help, and we can provide obligation-free help and advice on the perfect banner for your site or application.
