Outdoor Banners
4/18/2017

In order to ensure absolute quality, BannerFlex, in 1984, decided to contract with the GM Aeronautical Laboratory in Detroit. At this high tech laboratory facility data is collected and used to guarantee that BannerFlex’s banners and banner bracket hardware and other equipment is where it needs to be in strength and durability. Since we did our first test in 1984, we have done three more tests as technology has improved and new ideas have developed. We combine the data obtained from these tests with computer modeling and the data we acquire from strength testing that is done on our manufacturing site. This compiled data has made it possible for us to create our completely unique Wind Force Calculator Program that is available on our website.
