Banners can be used for many applications both inside and outside of a building.
Here are some of the most common methods for safely securing banners in different environments:
- Suction Cups
If the banner needs to be positioned over glass, suction cups are an excellent way to hold it in place without making permanent changes to the building. They are a quick and inexpensive way to suspend lightweight banners. Suction cups are gentle on surfaces and are easy to move if necessary.
- Zip Ties
For construction projects with fencing, zip ties allow the banner to attach to the fence securely. Zip ties have a strong hold, which can protect the banner from flying away during windy weather. If the banner is larger, multiple grommets and zip ties might be needed to keep it in place.
Often at trade shows a banner needs to attach to a fabric-covered table. Velcro brand hooks and loops can stick to many fabric surfaces and provide a simple solution for this situation.
When weather isn’t a concern or the banner will be placed inside, using a heavy-duty string will work just fine. Simply thread the heavy-duty string or thin roping through the grommets and tie it to an appropriate support.
- Bungee Cords
In areas with high winds, bungee cords can be used to securely fasten the banner while allowing it the flexibility to move with the wind. Since bungee cords have some give, while banners do not, putting the extra tension on the bungee cord instead of the banner will help prevent the banner from tearing.
