Just How Strong are BannerFlex Banner Brackets?


When it comes to durability, there are few banner brackets out there that can compete with BannerFlex banner brackets. It makes sense, too—BannerFlex is a trusted banner hardware seller internationally as well as in hometown Kalamazoo.

But what is it about BannerFlex banner brackets that make them so resilient? Well, that’s a little complicated. In this month’s blog post, we’re discussing how strong our banner brackets are (and why).

The History of BannerFlex Banner Brackets

Before we discuss the details of how strong our brackets are, we should discuss how they manage to be so strong.

Founded in 1983 by Roger Lepley, BannerFlex (known back then as Kalamazoo Banner Works) was the first street banner company to market both nationally and internationally. The confidence to market and such a large scale came from one simple fact: that BannerFlex banner brackets were simply the best the world has ever seen.

We were able to achieve such a high status by creating the very first fiberglass-aluminum combination brackets, which have now set the bar in the banner bracket industry. In combination with the advanced materials we use, the BannerFlex team also designed our banner brackets for longevity. That means we investigated the factors that lead to banner bracket failure, and proactively designed solutions for them.

Even in something as simple as banner hardware, we believe you’ll find beautiful design.

How Strong Are BannerFlex Banner Brackets?

So, we finally arrive at the question: how strong are BannerFlex banner brackets? Well, that’s a question with more than one answer.

Our banner brackets are designed for longevity and durability, so they can withstand the many misfortunes time throws at it. One such misfortune is wind speed. Since your banners will be placed in a high location and likely near buildings, they’ll be facing the worst windspeeds around. That’s why we’ve tested our banner brackets up to 100 miles per hour.

Yes, that’s right: our banner brackets are strong enough to withstand windspeed of up to 100 mph. We even added a wind force calculator right here on the site, so you can experiment for yourself before you buy. In fact, we’re so confident in the strength of our banners that we’ve attached a 12-year warranty to all our hardware products.
