BannerFlex Banner Bracket Hardware and Banners are Tested in Full Size Wind Tunnel

Outdoor Banners

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.

How to Determine the Innovator's Brackets from the Imitator's Brackets

Banner Bracket Hardware

Consort Display Group was the first banner company to design light pole brackets specifically with performance in mind. Prior to this, brackets consisted of steel pipe arms, welded to steel collars, that were then bolted to light poles. The steel would bend in the wind, collars were rarely tight enough on the varying-sized poles, and banding would often loosen during wind storms. As the BannerFlex D3 brackets became more and more popular, and the industry standard, manufacturers began to imitate the product. How can you tell the difference between the innovators and the imitators?

If you're walking down the street and look up at a vertical street banner, check out the hardware that is holding the banner on the pole, chances are it will be a white or off-white pultruded fiberglass rod. This technology, that we developed over 30 years ago, is used by almost every bracket manufacturers.

Screen Printed and Digitally Printed Banners… What Works Best?

Banner Bracket Hardware

Our site's visitors often ask us, "What is the best option for me, screen-printed or digitally-printed banners?" While it's a great question, there is – unfortunately – no easy answer. Personally, we prefer screen-printed banners, as they offer more vibrant inks and can be applied to durable, marine acrylic fabrics. It's possible that we're biased, though, since screen-printed banners were our very first product line back in 1983 and, over the years, we've become really good at it!
