Light Pole Banners are typically used for festivals, celebrations, decorations, and commercial or event advertising. Printed with bright colors on fabric or vinyl, they can be single or double-sided, the latter featuring a “silver blocker” layer to block sunlight from creating shadows from the back side of the banner (away from the sun).
What are Light Pole Banners? Wide Roller Banner
Light Pole Banners, a.k.a. street pole banners, are used frequently along streets and avenues in municipal areas, on university campuses, tourist areas, sports venues, malls, parks, and downtown areas. If you have been around these areas, it is very likely you would agree that they add a festive look, as well as being useful for advertising.
Sprucing up a bland area with these banners (or alternatively, they can be affixed to telephone poles or buildings with the correct hardware) is not only more attractive, it can be great for business. People like to go places that are bright and cheery, and bright-colored fabric outdoor vinyl or fabric banners will accomplish that.
What type of street pole banners should we purchase?
There are a few choices for the types of banners that can be used for pole banners. The main categories are fabric and vinyl.
Fabric banners can be made from screen-printed fabrics or dye sublimation printed polyester fabrics. Our bias is toward dye sublimation printed polyester fabric banners as they are affordable and last a long time. They can be done both single and double sided, with a “silver blocker” lightweight fabric between the two pieces of fabric to eliminate shadowing.
Vinyl banners come in various weights, most commonly for double-sided banners, the material weight is about 17oz. to 22 oz. and for single sided banners, 13 to 18 oz. Vinyl banners are typically cheaper, and in our opinion (we will quote either type), are not as attractive as the poly fabric banners.
Light Pole Banner Sizing
How heavy is the system without the banner?
It depends on whether it is a single or double sided pole banner system and the width of the banners being hung, but the range is five to ten pounds.
What is the standard size of a typical light pole Banner?
Standard sizing, again, is not standard, as the width typically vary from 12 inches to 36 inches, but can go wider if required, although the wind load will increase exponentially the wider and taller the banner.
The most common widths are 24, 30, and 36 inches, and the most common light pole banner heights are 36 – 48 – 60 – and 72 inches.
What is the standard hemmed pole pocket size?
The pole pocket will have to do with the banner’s overall size, but typically, a two inch vertical pole pocket height will be enough to accommodate 95% of the horizontal banner poles in the market place.
