As a real estate developer and construction business owner, you’re likely to worry about building and project costs. But promoting your business, ensuring job site safety, and creating a positive image within the community is just as important. Construction fence banners will come in handy in concealing debris and raising awareness on an ongoing development project.

Maybe you’re building a new condo or a new business complex, and the owner asks you to advertise on a construction fence screen or banner. The mesh fence is a natural choice for many people in the construction business, which holds up well to harsh weather and the elements. Because it is breathable, the material lets wind pass through so that it won’t tear or flap in windy weather.

What Are Custom Fence Banners?

Mesh banners and screens are common coverings around construction sites. Along with hiding debris and advertising new housing estates, custom printed fence banners help beautify the roads along the construction area. These banners come in open weave or closed weave. Custom fence screens have a range of outdoor applications as well. You mostly see them on chain link fences, though people install them on any type of wall or fence. People use them in:

  • Construction sites
  • Schools
  • Sporting events
  • Advertising locations
  • Corporate events
  • Concerts
  • Renovation projects

Fence wraps are made by printing an image or graphics like construction signs on a solid vinyl or a vinyl mesh material. To use these wraps at a construction site, you would need hanging accessories. These include bungee cords for easy installation of the banner, a 10 feet nylon rope to hang your mesh banner, zinc-plated hanging clips, and zip ties to fasten your mesh banner to the fence. Specific banner installations require pole pockets, which allow banners to slide over cables or poles. Some people add grommets, usually made of rubber/ plastic/ metal, to help reinforce the banner holes.

Construction Banner Finishing Options

Check out five standard finishing options for construction signs and banners:

Flush Cut: Anther option for your construction mesh banner is the flush cut, where the banner is cut to the same size as the design. It’s the opposite of the welded hem. This type of finishing is available for no extra charge and can be modified on our design tool at the designing stage.

Grommets: 3/8″ metal rings are inserted into the fence banner material, allowing you to attach your banner to the fence using ropes, clips, and zip ties. You can choose to have grommets placed every 24 inches along the banner’s edges or at the four corners.

Pole Pockets: Available at an additional cost, pole pockets are 3″ pockets that are sewn to the top or bottom of your mesh banner. These pockets allow you to hang the banner with a rope or install it between posts.

Reinforced Edges: With this type, a durable webbing is sewn at 1.5″ intervals around the hem, on the four sides of the banner. What this does is protect the banner material from tearing.

Sewn Hem: Another free finishing option, the sewn hem involves heat welding the borders of the solid vinyl fence wraps to create a strong border and a high-quality finished edge. This option doesn’t work with pocket holes.

Benefits of Custom Mesh Banners

Fence screen banners have many benefits, including:

Weather-Resistant and Waterproof

Our 8 oz vinyl construction banners have perforations and are perfect for continual outdoor use. They can endure both high winds and torrential rain. You can rest easy knowing they won’t get torn or ripped in extreme weather conditions.

Ideal for Windy Areas

Construction banners typically have a 70:30 material-to-hole ratio, allowing wind gusts to pass through the banner without catching the wind or tearing the material.

Durable 8 oz Vinyl Material

The 8 oz vinyl material, which is used to produce banners, is built to last. It can resist physical damage from ripping to fraying and tearing. What’s more, the material is fade-resistant. With an average lifespan of three years, the banner will hold up well until your construction work is completed.

Large Signage

Mesh banners are suitable for your large outdoor signage needs. It’s possible to produce a variety of banner sizes for your construction site, all the way up to 10′ x 145′.

Digitally Printed

Fence banners for construction sites are digitally printed at a sharper resolution of 720 x 720 or even higher. The resulting full-color print displays all your stunning graphics and colorful designs vividly and professionally.

FAQs about Construction Banners

Here, we provide answers to common questions concerning mesh banners and fence wraps commonly used on the construction site.

What materials are construction fence banners made from?

Construction signage and fence wraps are usually made from two types of materials. The first material is an 8 oz vinyl mesh that’s made of elastic polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Its strands are machine-woven to create a mesh appearance, and it has a 70:30 permeability ratio. The other type is 13 oz solid vinyl, which is made of polyvinyl chloride. The wrap is usually produced as a single, solid sheet with gaps. You can choose the type of material when ordering a custom printed fence screen for your job site.

UV treated to reduce print fade, vinyl banners have a material weight of 440 gsm. Mesh face, on the other hand, has small holes like a screen door that allows wind to pass through the material. These holes drastically reduce wind pressure on the construction banner and the fence.

Vinyl mesh banners are suitable for weather resistance and designed for durability. The heavier polyester used in both vinyl and mesh fences wicks away water without spoiling the design or lowering the product’s quality. Except in extreme weather conditions, both materials can offer years of service outdoors. With proper care and maintenance, solid vinyl or fence mesh can last for three to seven years outdoors.

Both vinyl mesh and solid mesh can withstand rain pretty well. Moist weather conditions won’t ruin or affect the graphics on your vinyl fencing. Solid vinyl fence screens are made from strong, durable vinyl material, and the ink used in production is both water- and fade-resistant. While you can install the fence in any weather, avoid doing so in rainy conditions as the fence posts are not waterproof.

Do construction fence banners come with wind slits?

Wind slits are crescent-shaped openings cut into banners, so that wind can easily pass through. It’s likely your fence banner with pole pockets won’t need wind slits. Your average vinyl privacy fence can withstand winds of up to 100mph, provided the fence is installed properly and well-supported. However, hanging them in a place that experiences gusty winds make them prone to wind damage.

Solid vinyl displays vibrant, bold colors, but has no holes or slits, which causes it to catch more wind. To mitigate wind issues, you can order smaller banners that allow wind to escape through the sides. What this does is protect the eyelets and reduce strain on your fence. If you would like to set up a fence wrap on a large fence for other outdoor use, we recommend the vinyl mesh option. Made from woven strands, the vinyl mesh has 30% less material and allows wind to pass through the material.

Our fence banners and barricade signs have no wind slits. From our experience, slits don’t reduce the amount of wind that is caught by the construction banner. If anything, they lower the structural integrity of the banner, making them prone to tears and rips. A better way to mitigate wind is to order the vinyl mesh option.

A vinyl fence wrap or fence banner can withstand normal windy conditions provided it is fastened properly to the fence. If you’re concerned about the wind in your area, you can add reinforced corners to your mesh vinyl material. Creating reinforced edges involves sewing an extra layer of material around the outer edges of the mesh banner. What this does is provide additional strength and stop the banner from tearing in strong winds or harsh weather conditions.

What sizes do fence banners come in?

While the sign industry has no “standard” banner size, there are some common sizes that are widely accepted for vinyl banners: 6′ x 3′ (72″ x 36″) , 4′ x 2′ (48″ x 24″), 8′ x 4′ (96″ x 48″)  and 12′ x 12′ (144″ x 144″). Fence mesh comes in rolls which are typically 50 meters long. You can choose from two mesh widths: 1.8-meter wide for temporary fencing or 1.6 meters for concealing anti-gawk screens. If you have a small project and don’t see the need for a 50-meter long mesh banner, that’s not an issue for us. We can still deliver fence screens at your desired length.

Construction site banners are big enough to be seen from far out yet small enough to transport easily. Some sign shops have a minimum and maximum size for vinyl fence banners. The maximum size we can produce is 10’x165′ for solid vinyl banners and 10’x145′ for mesh banners. If you are looking for a smaller fence sign, we recommend our other signage options. Maximum sizes are suitable in situations where one single, continuous sheet is preferred over multiple sheets.

It is possible to produce a fence wrap that’s larger than the seamless size. Large wraps typically contain multiple banner pieces that are heat welded together. If you would like to create a fence banner that’s larger than the sizes mentioned above, contact customer service. Our design team will create a custom printed fence banner to your desired specifications and dimensions.

Will the construction fence banner allow light to pass through it?

Well, the amount of privacy your fence screen provides depends on the type of banner material that you choose. The vinyl mesh option is a see-through material with 70% blockage, while solid vinyl wrap has 100% blockage. It is possible to see through the vinyl mesh banner from both sides, especially from the back. If you want complete privacy at the construction site, go for a custom printed fence wrap that’s made of solid vinyl. Ensure that the wrap covers the length and height of your fence before installing it. Placing the banner in an area with a dark background can help reduce the amount of sunlight that shines through the fence banner.

Are construction fence banners printed on both sides?

Construction site banners are mostly printed on one side, though it is possible to print both sides of a single layer of vinyl for a two-sided display. Each fence can have its own graphics or use the same image on both sides. One side is exposed to public view, while the other conceals the job site. Standard and custom sizes are available up to 50 feet long. Printed on your choice of vinyl material or perforated fabric, the large fence banner features your design in vibrant, full color and allows wind to pass freely without ugly wind slits.

Do construction fence banners block vision?

The degree of privacy your fence screen provides at the job site depends on the type of fence screen you order. The standard mesh fence is a see-through material with 70% blockage while solid vinyl fences are opaque, with 100% blockage. If you want privacy with your custom printed fence wrap, we strongly advise you to pick the solid vinyl material. Another thing: You also want to make sure the printed wrap covers the entire height and length of the fence where it’s installed.

How much do construction fence banners cost?

The cost of a fence wrap or banner depends on the type of printing material and size. The bigger the wrap size, the higher the cost. Standard fence wrap dimensions are 6′ x 2′, 6′ x 3′, 10′ x 3′, and 8′ x 4′. The number and size of pole pockets also determine the cost of a construction site fence. Adding reinforced corners and grommets also increases the banner cost. Generally, a mesh wrap costs slightly more than a vinyl fence. If you’re looking for construction fence banners that typically cost less than what your local shop charges, visit our online store or order a customer vinyl mesh fence today.

How long does it take to make a construction fence banner?

The standard turnaround time for construction site banners is 2-3 days. The production team can start work on your printed banner mesh and typically delivers your order as soon as you approve the artwork. If you have print-ready artwork, we can expedite production times and finish your banners within 24 hours. Once your order is shipped, it may take 5-7 business days for it to arrive. Shipping time depends on the shipping method. You can expect slight delays with deliveries on public holidays and during the end of the fiscal year. If you need your fence wraps sooner, then we recommend selecting a faster shipping option such as overnight or 2-day.

Why do construction companies use construction fence banners?

Temporary fences are of crucial importance for securing construction and renovation sites. Thanks to them you can avoid unnecessary accidents. Protect expensive machines and property. Cover up the parts that are not so pretty such as excavations and piles of construction materials. Without further ado, here are some of the main reasons for construction companies to use construction fence banners.

Why are they so popular with construction companies?

Fences, gates, doors and gates are unattractive on their own, but they are essential in many places. Custom banners on fences can be an aesthetic covering for construction areas that are much less so. They just offer a view of the construction materials, machinery and tools.

The grayer the construction site, the more colorful the fence banners can be! You don’t want passers-by to associate the site of a future building with scaffolding and cement.

This makes the construction site appear more orderly. It gives the workers a little more privacy. And it can occasionally serve as an advertising space for the construction company. These construction fence banners have become an important publicity support. Far from being a simple hiding tool, they are transformed into a nice looking part of the urban scenery.

Do they really improve security?

An open construction site can be a dangerous area. Both for construction workers and for the public. Besides, it is usually an eyesore and possibly a target for burglars and vandals. This is why fence banners are put in place on construction sites to reduce the various risks and threats.

Besides unintentional intrusions, some people are simply curious. They want to know what a construction project is underway or to see what it looks like. So they may get closer than allowed to get a clearer view of the construction. In fact, some may take their curiosity even further and even enter the site to find out what is going on. Putting a custom sign on the fence gives you the opportunity to show designs of what is being built. Maybe even the expected end result.

Do they really help with safety?

In addition to preventing trespassers from accessing the site, the use of construction fence banners helps protect both the construction workers and the passing public. Fence signs can be used to mark restricted areas that may be hazardous.

For people walking past the construction site, these banners can create a safe distance. They are preventing dirt and debris from flying towards them. Even construction workers have areas that may be out of reach due to the presence of potentially dangerous equipment or tools.

Are they expensive?

The prices for construction fence banners vary from 70 to 150 dollars on average. It depends on the material used. It is possible to get discounts on big orders and bulk buys. But again, everything depends on the level of customisation that the construction company desires. And on the number of add-ons, the size, or the type of installing mechanisms.

Are they good for advertising?

Large format outdoor advertising on a variety of surfaces such as buildings, scaffolding, facades and construction sites generates a high level of attention.

Advertising banners hanging on construction sites usually advertise the services of companies that are involved in that particular investment. They usually feature the main contractor. And sometimes even include advertisements of material suppliers or subcontractors. The fence is therefore a kind of business card of the investor or contractor of construction works. It should look good not only for ordinary aesthetic reasons.

The advantage of such advertising is to reach potential customers in the local area. People who pass by the construction site every day. The banner makes them aware of the brand, which increases the chances that they will choose its services or products in the future. They often decide to use the services of the company, which has already been used by their neighbor. The advantage of such a solution is the possibility to ask him about the quality of workmanship. And also about the overall satisfaction with the company.

What are they made of?

The design and materials of fence banners are based on everyone’s individual needs. The great multitude of barriers, fences and gates, make it quite difficult to have an absolute standard size or a single type of material that fits all circumstances.

The most important factor is to choose the right material for the fence banners. Front Light banners are the most popular material on which fence banners can be designed. It is a pvc material that is ideal for front lighting.

Blockout is used to create two-sided banners. There is a black, opaque separating layer between two thin layers of printed vinyl. It prevents the images from interfering with each other.

Mesh tarp is the perfect alternative to the front light. It has a micro-perforated texture and its own lighter weight. It puts less pressure on fences, does not have a sail effect and will not tear in even strong winds.

How long do they last?

With the proper maintenance and care, fence banners can last up to 2 years in a clean environment. Durability is understood as resistance to corrosion, as well as adequate stiffness. It guarantees the user the comfort of repeated use of the system – each time it will be necessary.

In this way the price of the fence translates into a great investment, and can make you save money in the long-run. Especially considering that this solution is very universal.

Possibilities of its use are almost unlimited. It can be perfectly matched to the requirements of the needs and character of the place being fenced.
