Piggotts Scaffolding Banners
18 April 2019

Piggotts Flags & Branding Ltd are experts in high quality building and scaffold banners. Our Banners, Building Wraps and Signs are heavy duty, built-to-last, and fit-for-purpose – without the extra cost.

We use only the best materials, including our flame-retardant rip-stop PVC banner and quality windproof mesh banner. Banners are finished with heavy-duty hems, metal eyelets and tough welded pockets as standard. Our high production and finishing specifications are crucial to the lifespan of a scaffold banner, we have seen many from other suppliers fade within weeks or simply rip themselves from fixings in high winds.

Low Priced Scaffold Banners

Our very low prices are based on the high volume of Scaffold Banners and Scaffolding Signs we produce every week, plus our efficiency of design and manufacture.

You can place an order for just one Banner, or for hundreds.

Scaffold Banner Material Specification

Our Standard PVC Scaffold Banners are made from our tried and tested 500gsm PVC which can be printed single sided in full colour. The extra strength in this material reduces the stress caused by weather conditions up on scaffolding. This makes it last longer and look better for longer than cheaper materials used by other suppliers.

Larger Scaffolding Banners are recommended to be made with one of our Mesh PVC materials. Tiny holes in this material allow wind to pass through and reduce wind-load on scaffolding structures. Standard Mesh has a 70/30 print surface to hole ratio. Mesh also has the advantage of letting light through into the building behind.

All our scaffold banner materials are flame retardant, waterproof and weather resistant. We print using fade-proof inks to ensure your banners remain vibrant and visible even in exposed locations.

Please contact us if you have any special requirements for your scaffold banners such as odd shapes or specific finishing instructions on 01376 514372 or email us sales@pfandb.co.uk.

Scaffold Banner Finishing

Typical Scaffold Banners can be finished with any combination of welded/stitched hems, secure metal eyelets and pole pockets – included in the price.

We can advise on the best finishing options for your scaffold banners, based on their dimensions and location.

Larger scaffold banners benefit from omega tunnels which are fitted to the reverse of the banner. These allow the banner to be fixed to vertical scaffold poles at regular spacing.

Scaffold Banner Installation

Smaller Scaffold Banners can be specified with sleeve pockets top and bottom through which you can slide scaffold poles. Adjusting the gap between the poles allows you to tension the banner and prevent it from flapping around and being damaged.

Larger scaffold banners are best finished with hems and eyelets, allowing you to fix them to an oversized scaffold frame using bungee cord or shock cord. Shock cord should be threaded through the eyelets in short sections and tied off. Avoid using cable ties or standard rope as these do not offer any give during wind gusts.

Giant Scaffold Banners can also be finished with omega tunnels or sleeve pockets on the back. These allow the fixing of the banner at regular intervals onto long vertical scaffold poles.

Scaffold Banner Artwork Guidelines

Please ensure your artwork is print-ready and conforms with our requirements. Our staff will always check your artwork files and contact you immediately with any queries prior to printing.

Scaffold Banner Design Tips

Get your banner size right

You can design your banner at actual size or to scale, depending on the software you use. Ensure that your final print file will scale up in proportion to the size of banner you have ordered.

Allow for Eyelets and/or Pole Pockets in your design

Ensure that no critical information is within 100mm of the edge of your banner design, this allows room for eyelets, hems and other finishing options. Background images and graphics are fine, just be wary of text, numbers and logos.

Your artwork should be set to CMYK

Set your artwork to CMYK, as this matches the print process. If your artwork is in RGB mode, the colours may not come out as expected.

Colour Matching

Colour matching to Pantone references is possible, but may take longer and will incur an extra charge. Files including pantone colours will be converted to CMYK unless you specify a colour match in your order.

Design Principles

Banners are first and foremost an advertising medium. Information displayed should be clear to read – consider how far away your target audience will be. If your banner is intended to be viewed from a distance then the contrast should be high and typefaces need to be legible. If you try to cram too much information onto a banner then the text may end up too small to read!
