Really Huge Banner

Posted by Frank Murch | Jul 28, 2016 10:00:00 AM

Need to get an outlandishly large banner up? How does this happen? How they stay up there?

Here is an example:Banner_-_Paul_Jester_-2.jpg

This banner is about 100 feet long and 20 feet tall. It is so big, it is hard to move. It takes some careful planning to deal with something this big. At Signs for San Diego we do large building installations. We have the equipment, and experience to help.

In this case the parapet wall, that is the barrier wall at the edge of a roof, is very short. We hung this banner from that wall. We anchored it about every 3 feet using the grommets that were in the banner. Sometimes we add grommets, sometimes we mount a wood frame, or a series of eyelets. It depends on the situation.parapet_wall_banner_mount_2.jpg

Wind is always a factor with huge banners. Wind behind the banner puffs it out, but it also puts stress on the banner. We anchor the sides and bottom to create a seal so wind can not get behind the banner.

We also have the aerial equipment, the bucket truck, the crane, the ladders to do the job correctly. This is exactly what you need to make a huge impression. Be seen from the highway, be noticed from a far – this could be your answer.
