Fence wraps are printed banners that are fitted over fences to obscure or partially obscure construction sites. They are commonly used to advertise events, products, or sponsors without drawing attention to the construction sites behind the fences they are concealing.
Fabric mesh banners are the most common type of fence wraps.
Installing a fence wrap is an easy process. The procedure is the same regardless of the size and material of your mesh banner. Brisbane features plenty of construction sites in the city where mesh fences have been concealed using fabric mesh banners.
Prior to Installation
Fence Wrap Installation
When ordering your fence wrap, you should consider the height of the fence as well as its length. The fence should be continuous for the length you would like to cover with the fence wrap, and shouldn’t vary significantly in height.
Remember that fence wraps are rectangular in shape and fit best over fences that are the same size or slightly larger than the mesh banner you are attempting to fit.
Once your fence wrap has been delivered, be sure to inspect the fabric for any tears or defects. Mesh banners come with eyelets already embedded near the edges of the fabric. The spacing of the eyelets should be uniform, and the fabric should not have creases or wrinkles when spread out.
Start by unravelling the mesh and resting it on the ground along the length of the fence you would like to cover. If you’re satisfied with the dimensions of the banner, you should select a position along the fence to start covering.
Fence Wrap Maintenance
Lift one of the top corners of the banner up to the fence using the corner eyelet, and hold it against the horizontal bar atop the fence. You can choose to slip a thin rope through the eyelet and tightly fasten it to the bar, being careful not to use a knot style that could come loose. Alternatively, you could secure the eyelet to the bar using a plastic cable tie.
Once the corner eyelet has been secured to the fence, you should start attaching the next eyelet and the ones after that. Be sure the rope or cable tie has been firmly fastened so that they do not slide along the top of the fence. You should aim to stretch the fabric so that it isn’t slacking while fastening the eyelet in place.
Some people prefer to order banners that cover the fence from top to bottom in order to completely conceal the fence and the area behind it. But you may prefer to order a banner that is bit shorter than the fence so that the bottom of the banner isn’t in contact with the ground or any plants along the ground.
Fabric mesh banners are usually made from a durable material that doesn’t require much maintenance. Over time however, some of the cable ties may shift around slightly due to the wind, which can cause the banner to sag. You should check on your banner every few days to see that isn’t sagging in regions.
