How To Install Fence Wrap On A Fence

Unless you’re in the construction or signage industry, you’ve probably never had to worry, or let alone think about how to install fence wrap on a fence. 

For the most part, it is pretty straightforward to install fence wrap. We understand there are people who like to figure things out for themselves, and will probably have no problem installing their signage in theory. There are, however, things to be mindful of when it comes to the safety of: you (the installer), passersby, the fence, the signage itself, and also nearby property.

The main thing we want to achieve here is to ensure that your mesh will have the longest possible lifespan and that the fence wrap installation is done safely. The last thing you want to worry about is your fence blowing over, or your signage unhinging from the fence, causing potential damage to property or causing injury; this is why we have such strict laws in Australia.

Installing Fence Wrap: Step by Step

Tools required:

These instructions are designed for a full 50m roll of PVC banner mesh in mind. If your site is uneven, we would recommend having your printed mesh cut into shorter sections (which can be arranged during the ordering process). Cutting the mesh yourself is not recommended, as you will not have the edging and eyelets for a clean edge or an easy install.

We also don't recommend to install fence wrap alone; it is easier and safer to install fence wrap with two people.

Total time: 20 minutes

Locate the Eyelets

Locating Eyelets On Mesh

Eyelets are typically positioned every 50cm along the edging (sometimes only every 1m along the bottom). Ensure that the fence will have the ability to cater for these tie down points on the wrap. 

It is important that every eyelet is secured with a cable tie, as any unsecured section of the printed mesh that flaps around in the wind can incur damage to the fabric or see the ink wear off.

Position the Roll

Position Roll

Firstly, take note of the printing as to whether you will install from the start or end of the fence. 

There are two ways to go about installing fence wrap. The easiest is to lay the wrap on the ground (when dry), just in front of the fence. In wet conditions, stand the roll vertically against the fence, and unroll one small section of the signage.

Attach with Cable Ties

Attach Cable Tie

From one end, starting at the top corner of the roll, loosely attach a black cable tie through the eyelet and around the fence. We recommend using two cable ties for each corner of the wrap where possible, so that it can be secured to both the horizontal and vertical railings. 

Do not tighten the cable ties all the way just yet, it is best to wait until you’ve completed the fence wrap installation against the fence, so you can ensure everything goes on straight.

Continue Installing Fence Wrap

Continue to unravel one small section of the wrap at a time (roughly 5-10m at a time is fine), loosely attaching cable ties, securing the top first, then the bottom.

Adjust and Fix Any Folds

Adjust Fence Wrap Installation

Once you have attached the whole wrap against the fence, check over the signage to see if there are any folds that need straightening out. The cable ties can then be adjusted and secured tightly.

Finishing Up

Finish Installing Fence Wrap

Once you have double checked your fence wrap installation and everything is straight, secure all cable ties and cut off any excess strap.

Please note: Cable ties still need a bit of give as overly tight cable ties can wear and break under too much tension.

Why Cable Ties?

When it comes to installing fence wrap, cable ties are recommended over any other fastening tool. Cable ties are easy to use, strong, and flexible. Using screws and nails directly into the fabric will only cause a weak point in the material, making it more prone to tearing in windy conditions.

One thing to note when using cable ties, is to be sure not to overtighten. Cable ties can break under too much tension, so allowing a bit of give will ensure the cable ties are operating at their best.

Cable ties are also easy to remove. If a big storm is approaching, and you do not have the ability to take down the whole fence wrap quickly or safely, you can cut the bottom cable ties to allow the printed mesh to flap in the wind. 

While it is not ideal for mesh to flap around in the wind over the long term, it is a quick and immediate solution to prevent any damage that could be caused by the wrap trying to resist strong, stormy conditions. The printed mesh can then easily be reattached again once it is safe to do so.

Conclusion

Installing fence wrap is one of the most cost effective advertising solutions money can buy. That being said, it is still an investment for many people, and it is one worth protecting. 

When you’ve been in the industry for as long as we have, you can be sure that we’ve seen our fair share of incidents. Ensuring proper fence wrap installation will help you get the most longevity out of your printed mesh, as well as keeping safety of people and property at the forefront.

Fence Signage Materials

FenceWrap offers several fabric options to help you create the best sign for your business. Our materials vary in longevity, but they all have one thing in common: quality. You will always receive the highest quality banner we can give you for the respective price points. Signs made from lower-priced materials may have to be replaced more frequently as their inks fade and the material degrades at a faster rate. You don’t need to worry too much about the longevity of our banners, as our inks have the potential to  last up to five years, depending on the conditions they are exposed to. 

Shade Cloth 

Our most cost-effective material for fence signage is shade cloth. It is very commonly used and is perfect for any short-term use. This material is a great choice for many situations, but if you are looking for an extremely solid print colour or material that will last a very long time, you may want to look into our other options.

Fabric Mesh

Fabric mesh is a great choice for short-term banners. Fabric banners are made out of polyester, which means the colours “bleed” through the fabric and can be seen on both sides. This material is great for signs, as it has extremely vibrant double-sided images. We would suggest this material for short-term fence banners or for sheltered areas, as extended periods of direct sunlight will fade the ink and strong winds can degrade the durability of the fabric.

BreezeMax

Play

BreezeMax signage is our best PVC option for windy areas.

Detailed images printed on this mesh may look somewhat grainy because of a looser weave than our other PVC options, but if you are worried about wind taking down your fence the banner will be attached to, this could be a good choice for you.

Classic Mesh

Play

Classic mesh material provides some wind permeability and a finer weave than BreezeMax, making it a great option if you have some wind, but not too much.

PrintMax

Play

PrintMax is our highest print quality banner material. With this option, your fence signage will look extremely professional from close up and from a distance.

100% PVC 

100% PVC is our most durable and long-lasting option. It is a completely solid fabric, allowing the brightest colours to truly stand out.There are no air-flow allowances in this fabric, except for the eyelets.

We offer matchless fence banner printing on an assorted collection of materials to meet your diverse fencing needs, however deciding on the best material in accordance with your requirements depends on several factors. There are certain materials that completely block the view while others have micro-holes that allow light to penetrate and also provide air passage during windy days.

Several materials are used to make the fences among which the most commonly used are:

Shade Cloth

Shade cloth is perforated in a way that allows the passage of air through the woven material. This is the best for installing as a screen or a fence on a temporary basis and usually lasts a year or so. Shade cloth is commonly used as it is the most cost effective, however it’s wide-set weave makes it less ideal for printing. Shade cloth is often referred to as the ‘standard’ fabric for fence banners. 

Plain Shade Cloth Building Wrap
Shade cloth is an effective material to cover scaffolding

The rolls of shade cloth are 50m in length and a height of 1.8m. Since it comes in a roll the cloth has to be cut according to the size most commonly required. Shade cloth requires proper installation, as strong winds can have adverse consequences besides damaging the fence as well as the screening. 

PVC Mesh

Play

This outdoor mesh, also known as a construction fence banner, has tiny holes to allow wind and air to pass through. This material is most commonly used for printing, and is ideal for large outdoor areas meant for display or for large outdoor windy areas. 

PrintMax and Classic mesh work best for high resolution photo printing in terms of clarity due to its higher density surface area, while on the other hand BreezeMax is perfect for strong wind areas. 

PVC Mesh Fence Banners
The most popular choice for fence banners; PVC mesh.

While PVC mesh is commonly supplied in 50m rolls, PrintMax and Classic mesh can be cut into sections for a small fee, which includes the additional edging and eyelets.

Fabric Mesh

Fabric mesh is made of nylon or polyester, an alternative offering for where top print quality is a priority. Due to risk of wear and tear in wind or from long-term UV exposure, this material is better suited to indoor fence barriers, sheltered areas, or short term outdoor use. These fence-wraps offer surprising printing quality and can be installed effortlessly.

Fabric mesh comes in a height of 1.7m, and is sold per lineal meter.  Longer lengths will require sewing or joining together of several banners to make one large fence banner.

100% PVC

100% PVC is a durable material used for hoardings or such surfaces where there is no need for wind to go through. The best thing about PVC material is that one can get the best resolution printing quality that is fade resistant and lasts for a long time. 

The 100% PVC can be stretched over the area with eyelets or rope track edgings fitted into an aluminum rail. It has a shelf life of about two years with a no fade guarantee of the same time period.
