Screwing In Vinyl Banners
Installation Guide >> Fastening Vinyl Banners >> Using Screws &: Washers
In some instances, there is a need to hang a banner on a surface that does not include any places to successfully tie a banner or use suction, but the surface is penetrable using screws. When using screws to secure your banner to a wall, a fence or along the side of a building, we suggest using wide washers with this installation method in order to provide enough surface area to ensure the screws used do not slip through the grommet holes.
One of the negative elements of using screws is the damage that screws can cause to a surface area. Unless the holes can be repaired, such as using plaster to repair drywall holes, you might be left with permanent holes in your surface showing after the banner is removed. However, if the fact that leaving holes in the surface is not an issue, screwing in your vinyl banners and using washers to ensure the grommet holes hold tight, is a very secure method.
When installing a banner onto any wall with a screw, once the optimal height is determined, it is always a good idea to draw a level line on the wall where the top edge of your banner will be hung to ensure your banner will be level. Once your level line is drawn, we recommend starting your installation by screwing your combination screw and washer into your top left corner grommet where your level line starts.
From this point, begin screwing each adjacent grommet to your level line moving to your right. Making sure each screw provides some tension is the best way to ensure you present a straight banner that does not sag. Installing your banner in pre-measured screw holes may cause a slight sag between each grommet location due to the diameter of your screw being smaller than the diameter or the grommet hole.
Always be sure to check with local ordinances and safety requirements when installing your banners to be sure you are in compliance with local statutes and safety standards. eSigns has placed this recommendation for assistance only and makes no claims, express or implied, as to the safety of this fastener or the recommendation by which to use this fastener for hanging banners.
