Printed banners for scaffolding and fencing can make the most of your construction site

Protec have supplied various protection materials for construction sites such as scaffold sheeting  for decades. What a lot of our contractors or their clients don’t know is that we can also print large banner advertising for sides of buildings that are undergoing work. Whether this is to inform the public on what is being constructed or to make the construction look more aesthetic it is becoming an opportunity not to be missed.

A good example of this are universities which often contract in work over the summer holidays while students aren’t usually there as its outside the academic year. This makes a lot of sense however this is also the time when prospective new students also visit universities to decide where to take their studies. Printed banners can turn a building with a lot of scaffolding from looking like a building site into a way of showing what is being built and the benefits for future students. Southampton University is one of our latest clients to do this and it looked great as you can see in the pictures below.

 This is the same for a new block of flats being built in a city, why not advertise the new accommodation on the side of the building while it is under construction rather than leaving it to look like an anonymous building being built.

 So are you planning on a new development? Carrying out the contracting work and want to show who is responsible? Give our enquiries team a call and see what we can do with printed banners for scaffolding or heras fencing on 0800 834 704 and you will be surprised in how quick we can suppy you with something suitable.

Scaffolding doesn’t have to be ugly! At Protec we supply a lot of materials to contractors of all sizes and many request a lot of these, particularly scaffold sheeting or fence screens, to be branded with their logo. This is often a simple logo print with maybe some other details however we recently had a request for something altogether much more interesting. Work on a public or historic building that is often still open and accommodating visitors while under refurbishment or construction can look unsightly and detract from the visitor’s experience. Hiding scaffolding or other works completely is often not possible but you can definitely try and blend it in. We recently supplied our Printed Banner to Woburn Abbey which has been the home of the Dukes of Bedford for nearly 400 years. When work was planned to go ahead on the building a solution was needed to keep the scaffolding on the side of the building as unobtrusive as possible as there were still planned visits and events such as weddings taking place. The banners are an ideal, cost-effective solution for promotional purposes to create a big visual impact. We produce full colour, digitally printed banners at low prices. PVC banners of any size can be made using single or multiple images, company logos or even photographs. There are no colour limitations, and virtually any effect can be re-produced quickly and cost-effectively. Our vinyl banners are water-resistant, UV-resistant, printed with UV stable inks and are finished with strengthened eyelets.

Scaffold SheetingMorgan Sindall are currently redeveloping a prominent historic six-storey West End office building for Legal & General Properties. One of the major challenges faced by the site team was how they were going to maximise the brand opportunities for their client.

As the site would require scaffold sheeting the Morgan Sindall site team contacted Protec and various different options were discussed. Protec have the facility to digitally print directly onto our scaffold sheeting to create much larger graphic images without the restrictions of logo size or repeat length. In addition to the high quality print, as little as one single 2m x 45m roll can be produced.

Scaffold SheetingBoth the site and the client were delighted with the results. Project Manager Alan Bush said:

“Due to the particular branding requested by the client; Digiscaff provided an excellent solution for displaying multiple logos and information on scaffold structure. We were very pleased with both the support provided by Protec and the quality of the print and product. When fitting Digiscaff we found out that we needed extra 3 rolls to provide full coverage, this was provided within just a few days providing an excellent after service.”

Any site that requires scaffold sheeting, particularly inner city or urban locations can provide a dramatic and unrivalled communication opportunity for either you or your client. Often the equivalent of thousands of pounds worth of space in conventional media is left blank when it could be used so much more effectively and at a modest cost.

As part of this service Protec provide a full graphic design service and custom printed materials can be delivered to site in as little as 7 days.

Printed Scaffold Sheeting5 reasons to custom print your protection materials:

  1. Promote your company brand on site. Why not? Others do.
  2. Differentiate yourself from your competitors
  3. Associate your name with the good practice of protecting your work from damage
  4. Identify which materials on site belong to your company, not easy when you are using unbranded material
  5. Custom printing is often available at little or no extra cost, when compared with unprinted material (subject to minimum quantities)
