A wide range of Banner Stands ensures that we can provide a real solution to suit your circumstances. Our banners are all quality prints, UV cured and finished, complete with a carry bag and ready to go!
Banner Stands are very popular for providing an easily transportable, quick to install, graphic display. There are different types of banner to suit different applications - exhibitions, retail, point of sale, indoor and outdoor events. Usually they are supplied with a bag for easy transport to the venue.
The most popular width for indoor banners is 800mm, but they are available in a wide range of sizes up to 2 metres. Heights vary, but are generally about 2 metres.
Roller Banner Stands, or ‘Pull-up Banners' are particularly popular because the graphic is housed inside the base unit on a retractable roller mechanism. This means that the banner is well protected by the housing during transport and storage. Some roller banner bases have twist out feet on the base to aid stability. These are generally Budget Banner Stands, although many don’t need this additional means of stability as the banner base is deep enough to be self-supporting. Poles can either be bungeed together to create a fixed height, whilst some are designed to be telescopic, such as the Barracuda Banner Stand. This can help with situations where you encounter restricted headroom. It also mean that the graphic can be designed for use with the banner fully extended, or it can be mounted on a desktop showing a shorter message with only the top of the banner showing.
To assemble, the base is simply put in position - the pole is located in a socket in the base and the banner rail is pulled up from the base and hooked onto the pole. With a fixed height banner the pole is leant backwards to make it easier to attach the top rail, whilst with a telescopic pole, it can be hooked on at low level and the pole extended to the desired height in stages. When taking down a roller banner, remember that the print is tensioned on a roller spring. Ensure that the banner print is released gently back into the banner housing to avoid damage. Never let it go from a height as this will likely damage the graphic.
Tension Banners are an alternative to the roller banner. Tension Banner Displays are usually 2 parts - the banner print and the frame that it fits to. The banner framework is assembled and then the banner is hung on the frame and tensioned before locking the banner into position. Tension Banner Stands nowadays include simple tubular frameworks like Formulate Monolith, over which you pull a printed fabric sock. The fabric is zipped shut to tension the graphic over the frame, which pulls out any creases to create a crisp and clean display.
Sometimes it is necessary for a display to be Double Sided and display graphics in opposite directions. This is particularly useful in retail outlets and showrooms. We can offer both roller cassette and tension units to create a Double Sided Banner Display.
Generally, the Banner Displays mentioned above are not suitable for outdoor use - they are light and vulnerable in the wind. Also, damp and wet conditions could affect the hardware.
A range of Outdoor Banners has therefore been developed. These banners use either UV print and cure technology onto pvc banner vinyl or dye-sublimation printing onto fabrics. The banners can be applied to different types of banner stands, including simple A-frames or moulded plastic structures that can have water or sand added as ballast to stabilise them. A wide range of Flag Banners are also available. These have a variety of bases available to suit different ground conditions, including spikes for soft ground, weighted baseplates for concrete, and 'drive on feet' so that a car wheel can keep the banner safe on a forecourt.
A variety of materials is also available for printing your indoor banner, dependent upon the circumstances in which you are using it. Again, from simple banner vinyl, through robust polyester and printed fabrics, the choice is wide and varied. Recommended materials are included with each banner stand, but feel free to ask about other options that may be available.
