Riverside City College is the home of the Tiger. The facility operates the Wheelock Stadium and Field, as well as the Wheelock Gymnasium. Athletes also work out at the lower campus Aquatics Center, Samuel C. Evans Complex, and the Fran Bushman Tennis Courts. When the school needed athletics vinyl graphics for the stadium track around the football field, the administration contacted Superior Signs and Graphics to take on the project.
Mesh Fence Banners Look Great and are Sturdy
Our specialists designed and installed more than 200 linear feet of mesh fence banners on the stadium track. Athletes see them at the end of the football field. Our technicians incorporated the school’s logo and the website address. To make the information stand out, we used strongly contrasting colors.
To boost the visual aesthetics, we added some fun ghosted graphics in the background that allow for the display of a continuous design along the length of the fence. This heavy-duty mesh banner sheds significant wind, and we used 125-pound breaking strength, UV-resistant cable ties. These steps ensure that the banner will have a long life.
Now, the highly detailed tiger image and the complementing color palette greet athletes and visitors to the stadium.
What are Mesh Banners?
As opposed to the smooth vinyl banner, which you know from the back-to-school night, the mesh banner is imprinted on a material with small holes. They allow the wind to pass through, which makes them suitable for chain-link fence installation.
Without the holes, the banner would act more like a sail and experience the full impact of the wind. This typically leads to tears of the vinyl and rips along the cable ties. Experts recommend the use of abrasion-resistant UV ink, which boosts the longevity of the graphics.
Who Uses Mesh Banners?
Mesh banners are not just for schools. We also put them together for municipalities and businesses. For example, when you see a banner installed above a street, and it does not seem to react to the wind, you know that it is likely a mesh product the municipality purchased for its events.
Companies like to buy mesh for outdoor advertising because the graphics look just as vibrant as they do on standard vinyl. Examples include recurring seasonal sales events or special offers. Churches, too, use these products to signal the presence of their beach days, BBQs, and outreach events. Since the mesh also resists wrinkles, it is ideally suited for storage and reuse.
