What is the difference between the printing quality on Shade Cloth & Banner Mesh?
The difference between the two products lies in the quality of the printing achieved. While it’s quite a significant difference, the upside to the Shade Cloth is that it is very affordable and does the job. It also lets more air through so it creates less wind load on the fencing.Banner Mesh offers a premium looking finish, right through to a full coverage print. The lifespan of the Banner Mesh is greater due to heavyweight construction of the base material, along with the rope edge for added strength when attaching it to the fence.
