How do I know which KBW brackets to choose?

There are three basic KBW BannerFlex models and each of those has several arm options. These are briefly explained below. For more information also see our "Hardware Banding Guidelines Chart" which shows the bracket models and suggested banner sizes. In addition, see our "Wind Force Calculator" for wind effects of banners that are 30"W x 60"T and 30"W x 94"T.

For smaller banners, such as 18"W x 36"T to 24"W x 48"T, the BannerFlex JR model is an inexpensive choice. This is a simple, non-adjustable bracket without the "canting" feature that the two other models have (the canting helps keep the banner tighter and trimmer than a non-canted bracket).

For banners in the 24"W x 48"T to 30"W x 72"T range consider the BannerFlex Metro models as medium-sized options. These are also perfect for smaller, ornamental and "fluted" poles as the pole casting is designed to accommodate most fluted pole configurations. For slightly taller banners (to 30" W x 84" T and for more wind reduction consider the Metro Airow model. All Metro brackets feature the canted arms for tighter and trimmer look, with no destructive "flapping" and billowing. See the Wind Force Calculator for information regarding the regular Metro versus the Metro Airow models.

For banners in the 30" W x 60"T to 30" W x 94"T consider the BannerFlex D3 and the D3 Airow. These are perfect for the more typical large scale street banners For more wind reduction consider the D3 Airow model. All D3 models feature the canted arms for tighter and trimmer look, with no destructive "flapping" and billowing. Again, see the Wind Force Calculator for information regarding the D3 versus the D3 Airow models.

If you have square poles with flat faces of over 5", please look at the Square Pole Adapter options to allow the banding to provide more tension and strength to the installation.

If you're mounting to the side of a building, see our Wall Mount Plates.
