Here are a series of four photos take of the same Banner Bar installation over a period of 6+ months. Despite windy fall weather and the beginning of our windy spring weather, the 3' x 12' banner still looks as good a new.
Banner Installation - September 17, 2020
We installed the banner and the Banner Bar kit on September 17, 2020. The banner was sized at 3' x 12', printed on 13 oz. matte banner material and finished with our thermal welded hem. Grommets were placed approx. every 24" across the top and one extra on each side. Normally we like four grommets on each end (counting the corner grommets) but we went ahead and installed this one with three grommets on each side. Our client purchased the 12' to 16' 3-Post Kit which is required to display banners larger than 8' wide. This kit was installed on three 6'-6" long T-posts using the included "center T-clip" for connecting two telescoping Banner Bars together.
December 2, 2020 - Cold December Temps
We took this photo on December 2, 2020 to record how the banner was looking approximately two and a half months after the banner was installed. Other than some wrinkles due to the cold December day, the banner was in a perfect and readable condition. It had weathered a very windy late fall well.
March 12, 2021 - Starting to get a feel of spring!
On March 12, 2021, approximately 6 months after the installation, the 3' x 12' banner is still in great condition. The banner did not show any signs of wear. The left T-post moved a little due to the expansive soil in Western Colorado but is still very much intact.
March 23, 2021 - After Recent High Winds
On March 23rd we were in the area so we took one more photo. We've had some recent winds in the 30 to 45 MPH category and this banner still looks great! Other banners around town blew down. All of our local Banner Bar installations look great despite the recent high winds. In the next few months we'll recommend new bungees for this banner installation, but other than that, it's been a maintenance free banner installation. Remember, a banner on the ground is a waste of your money.
You buy banners for one reason . . . you need to communicate your message clearly to a large audience. Typically banners are used by large and small businesses to promote sales, new products, new brands, new services, grand openings, etc. You put a lot of time and money into creating perfect message for your banner campaign and then shortly after you install it, mother nature throws a storm at it, knocking it to the ground. This is why we say "don't get caught with your banners down" or "a banner on the ground is a waste of your money". Simply put, a banner on the ground is ineffective and will produce zero results.
We've solved this problem with the Banner Bar. The Banner Bar kit can be installed in any landscaped area near your business, creating a temporary or long term solution for displaying your outdoor banners. The kit is available in four different configurations allowing you to display banners as small as 4' wide and as large as 16' wide. The new 4' kit is perfect for restaurants who need to communicate their takeout services, new menu items, or other promotions. If your business is located in a high traffic area or on a corner, you can display two banners with our "V" configuration Banner Bar kit, maximizing visibility to both directions of traffic. If you need to display a larger banner to allow visibility farther off of the road or where traffic speeds are higher, the "Three Post" configuration Banner Bar kit will allow you to display a banner ranging from 12' to 16' wide.
