Hem and eyelet fixings are specifically designed for easy attachment to railings or walls. They provide a secure and reliable fastening solution.

These banners can also come with frames supplied for a freestanding display. See our branner A-frames for more information.
Can Advertising Banners be used in any weather?
Our PVC advertising banners are designed for prolonged use outdoors, whereas the fabric banners are more suitable for indoor use.
Please be aware that heavy winds, rain and snow can lead to increased wear and cause damage to the fastenings so you may want to remove these if high winds are expected.

What Compliance Issues are there for Displaying Advertising Banners?
To ensure legal compliance when displaying an advertising banner you will need to adhere to the UK government regulations governing physical advertising. This applies to banners, flags, and other forms of advertising.
When placing a banner in a location that you do not own or rent, obtaining permission from the owner is necessary. For instance, if you intend to advertise on the fence of a field near your business, you must obtain permission from the field's owner.
You also have a responsibility to ensure that the advertising materials remain in good condition, ensuring they are clean, tidy, and safe – not obstructing any other signage. If utilising a banner, it should be securely attached to the wall or any other supporting structure. In the event that it becomes loose, immediate action should be taken to re-secure it.
If unsure of any restrictions for your planned advertising banner, contact your local authority for more information.
