How to install fence wrap on chain link fencing
Once your freshly printed mesh arrives at your site, it’s easy to unroll and install on your site fencing.
Installing your fence wrap on chain link fencing is straightforward, provided you keep in mind that tension in the fabric is what will make the mesh look its best. If your banner is allowed to sag when you are fixing it to the fence, you will lose the tension that makes it look neat and tidy.
Here are our suggestions for getting the maximum impact from your new fence wrap.
Check the size: Ensure you have the right height mesh for your fence, with a little extra breathing space. Depending on your site, it can be good to allow for some space at the bottom so that the mesh doesn’t crumple and pleat on the ground, or get caught on grass or weeds.
Plan your installation: Install your mesh in good weather, and when you have another person to help you.
Unpack it: Unpackage the roll of mesh next to where you want to start placing it on your fence. Have your colleague support the mesh while you stretch it out across the fence bit by bit, fixing it as you go.
Cable tie it to the fence: Begin to tie the top edge of the mesh to the fence with cable ties. Lace the cable ties through the eyelets and through your fencing. Jaybro’s fence mesh is supplied with eyelets every metre on the top and bottom edges. This enables you to fix the mesh at regular intervals and have it hang nice and flat.
Finish by fixing the bottom cable ties to the fence in the same manner.
Remember, your mesh could be in place for well over a year, so the fabric will naturally gain some stretch and movement after being pulled taut. Repeated strong wind exposure may also make your fabric sag, so every now and then you may like to maintain your fence mesh by adding additional cable ties or repositioning the mesh so that it looks fresh and flat.

Is fence wrap the same as printed shadecloth?
Our fence wrap is a finer weave than printed shadecloth, although the term printed shadecloth is used interchangeably. Printed shadecloth is a more coarse woven material, whilst the polyester mesh used to create fence wrap is smoother with a more refined finish.
