FAQs

Can mesh be installed by one person?

Installation can be done by one person - but of course the process is quicker and easier with a helper! Eyelets provide a rugged fixing point - simply fix the banner mesh or scrim to fence with cable ties, tie wire or rope.

How does the mesh attach to the fence?

Once you receive your mesh on site, it is straightforward to unroll it along your temporary fence, attaching it as you go. 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. Eyelets also provide a rugged fixing point for long-term installations.

Can I get a printed sample?

PMS or spot colours cannot be 100% accurately reproduced, however if you’ve got a very specific corporate colour and need to get the shade just right, we can supply printed sample for a small cost. That way, you can use a physical sample to check the colour in real life. In most cases though, our digital proofs are sufficient for you to get a good handle on what your finished product will look like. As soon as you’ve approved the artwork we can get to work on your printed banner mesh, turning around most orders in roughly 10 days.

How do I supply Fence Banner Mesh with images or logos?

We can offer as much or as little design advice as you need – some customers like to have full creative control whereas others welcome our team’s input into getting the best design for your project. If you choose to supply your own artwork, remember how big the printed images are ultimately going to be. The most important thing is to provide high resolution images or logos. This will result in a highly professional final result. To put it another way, ensure your images have sharp edges and are not fuzzy or pixelated. If you are enlisting the help of a graphic designer, you might like to contact us for a copy of our artwork specifications that detail all the necessary specs.

Can I choose a custom length?

Printed fence mesh comes in rolls that are 50 metres long. You can take your pick of mesh width – we offer both 1.8 metre wide printing which is great for regular temporary fencing. Additionally, a 1.6 metre wide variant is good for covering anti-gawk screens. Furthermore it can be installed onto regular temporary fence where privacy is not a factor, and therefore the bottom portion of the fence can remain unclad. If yours is a small project and you don’t need 50 metres of banner mesh, that’s not a problem! We have no minimum order length so can provide mesh for very small projects.

Am I limited to one or two colours?

No - we use a purpose built printing press that uses a four colour process. This means that full colour images are no trouble at all, and there is no difference in cost if you choose full colour printing over single colour printing. In either case, our high saturation inks give excellent coverage and the most complex and colourful designs are accurately reproduced on our rolls of mesh.

What’s the difference between open weave & premium?

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. Premium banner mesh offers a slightly higher print quality due to its tightly woven construction. When the printing press transfers your design onto the mesh, the tighter weave enables better image fidelity, as the higher number of fibres per square metre can catch more ink. With this in mind, premium mesh is recommended for intricate designs or where a very high quality finish is required. 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.

Can I personalise the signage?

Yes. Each sign we create is personalised in accordance with the client’s wishes to best promote their business, products and services.

What are the benefits of printed signage?

Printed signage can be used effectively as an outdoor advertising material. They can be set up on large and highly visible sights, thus grabbing the attention of someone passing by.

Will the signage last?

Yes. Fence Banner Mesh ensures all of its products are made from the finest quality materials that will withstand even the harshest weather conditions. Some banner mesh from our offer is specially designed to be water and windproof, so you can count on them to stand tall and undamaged for the product’s lifespan.

Do I have to set up banner mesh at my job site?

This depends. You need to check the fire safety and building code rules in the area with your municipality.

Do mesh banners have to be professionally installed?

No. Anyone can set it up, but note that it will require more people if you are looking to cover a lot of square footage.

Do I have to maintain the banner mesh I set up?

No. Once you set it up, you can count on it to last undamaged for as long as you need it, no maintenance required.

What is your turnaround time?

We typically deliver the banner you order within 10 days from the payment confirmation date and artwork approval. However, the delivery can be slightly delayed during the end of a financial year and on public holidays.
