Standard Banding Installation Guide Video Transcript
Thanks for choosing Banner Saver for your upcoming project. Banner Saver is the world's premier wind spilling banner bracket system. In this video, we'll walk through everything you need to know about installing these incredible brackets. There are two choices for banding, standard banding and heavy banding.
This video will focus on standard banding.
Bannersaver Kit Components
Before we begin, let's go over all of the components of a Banner Saver Kit and the tools needed for proper installation. Each Banner Saver Kit includes 2 brackets, 2 fiberglass arms, 2 pins, and 2 zip ties. You will notice the fiberglass arms are 4 inches longer than your banner width.
In addition to the Banner Saver Kits, you will need 6 standard bands per set.
Tools needed for installation
You will need the following tools for a successful installation. A safe way to reach your work site, such as a bucket truck or lift. An electric screwdriver with a 5/16th inch driver. Tape measure. Marker. Tin snips. Tape.
Now let's talk about some tips before you get started.
We recommend a top to bottom approach, which means installing the top bracket first and bottom bracket second. It's highly recommended that you install the banner at the same time you install the brackets. Installing the brackets prior to installing the banner is likely to result in measurement issues, and may require purchasing additional bands.
The recommended install height is a minimum of 15 feet from the ground to the bottom of the banner for standard parking lot locations. Your site may have different requirements. The spring position is important. Remember, top bracket, spring on top, bottom bracket, spring on bottom. Got it? Cool. With standard banding, there are three bands per bracket.
Two on the spring end, one on the other. Okay, let's get going.
Step 1: Place Top Brackets
Position and attach the top bracket to the pole using tape to temporarily secure the bracket while the bands are positioned. We're installing two banners per pole, but the process is the same as when you install one banner per pole. Remember, spring on top for this one!
Step 2: Secure the banding
Secure the bands with the electric screwdriver. Make sure the band is tight and doesn't have any give by pressing on the band. Remove the tape and install the rest of the bands using the same technique.
Trim the extra band length using the tin snips.
Step 3: Install Arm & Secure
Insert the end of the fiberglass arm with the metal sleeve into the nose of the bracket. Insert your pin through the banner saver nose and fiberglass arm.
Step 4: Hang Banners
Slide the banner onto the installed fiberglass arm.
Finish with a zip tie through the grommet.
Trim the zip ties with your tin snips.
Step 5: Position Bottom Arm & Bracket
To position the bottom bracket, insert the fiberglass arm through the bottom pull pocket of the banner. The metal sleeve end should be inserted into the nose of the bracket. Insert the pin through the banner saver nose and fiberglass arm. It should be noted that the bottom bracket is not yet attached to the pole.
Repeat the process for the second banner if installing two banners per pole.
Step 6: Secure Bottom Brackets
The bottom bracket can now be installed on the pole. Push the bottom bracket against the pole, spring on bottom and install the top band.
Minor adjustments to the location of the bracket on the pole can be made by lightly tapping the bracket with a hammer.
Step 7: Final Bands
Push the bottom edge of the bracket against the pole and install the bottom bands.
Banner Savers have a 1 degree cantilever built into the design of the bracket so as you push the bracket against the pole, the banner will tighten.
Step 8: Final Zip Ties
Finally, finish with a zip tie through the grommet.
Trim the ends of the zip tie, and you're done.
