Banner Ups Adhesive Tabs

Banner Grommets

Banners are an essential component of advertising, marketing, and promotion campaigns. While banner advertising is quite economical, the costs and time associated with banner finishing such as installing banner eyelets, metal or plastic grommets, or other banner hangers can be time-consuming and expensive.

The Banner Ups® line of adhesive banner grommet tabs were uniquely designed to address the problems of conventionally used banner hangers, banner eyelets, and grommets. Banner Ups® products are ready-to-use and are available in many configurations to fit every need.

FAQ's

How long will banners made with Banner Ups last outdoors?

Banner Ups and PowerTabs® are designed specifically to withstand outdoor conditions. The polymer films and adhesive systems are engineered for use in the widest possible range of temperatures and environmental conditions. If you want a banner that will last for a year of continuous use, or many years of seasonal use, we would recommend that you buy a heavy duty banner material, reinforced with webbing and grommets. However, if you are creating an economical banner that will be used for between a few weeks and a few months, you can use Banner Ups and PowerTabs® with confidence. We have had customers tell us they had our products on banners that lasted over a year and were still going strong!

When should I use neck loop to fasten the rope and when should I use the Center Hole in the Banner Ups?

The two questions above need to be considered together because the answers relate to the amount of strength required for your application. There are several degrees of strength that can be achieved with the Banner Ups, and PowerTabs/ PowerTape system. We recommend that for indoor or light duty outdoor use you may use either Mini Banner Ups or Mini PowerTabs. In either case simply apply a mini tab directly to each corner of your banner and then use the tab’s center hole to fasten the rope. Similarly, for indoor or light duty outdoor you may use the Large Banner Ups or PowerTabs with the rope attached through the corner loop.

For the next degree of strength, use the large tabs with the rope through the center hole. This can be used for most outdoor situations with banners in the range of 8 foot length and under.

For the maximum strength, use both PowerTabs and PowerTape as described above. This is recommended for banners of lengths in excess of 8 feet or where maximum wind exposure is expected. Naturally no banner can be guaranteed to withstand all possible environmental conditions, but consider this strength data.

The strength of a rope when tied through the center hole of a mini tab or through the loop of a large tab will hold up to about 50 lbs of force. A rope tied through the center hole of a large Banner Ups or PowerTabs will hold up to about triple that force -150 lbs. With the addition of PowerTape that number goes to over 200 lbs of strength. That means when you use the PowerTabs/ PowerTape system on all four corners you can create super strong banners that can withstand up to 800 lbs of wind load!

How do I punch the center hole in the media?

Using the Banner Ups PowerPunch® is the safest and easiest way to punch the tab center hole in the media. The PowerPunch® hole is perfectly sized and the PowerPunch® punches the hole at just the right position. Using a knife to cut the center hole is possible, but risky because if the tab is cut slightly it may diminish the banner strength significantly. The PowerPunch® is reasonably priced and heavy duty for long life.

Can I use Banner Ups with Grommets?

Yes, you can use grommets with Banner Ups. First, apply the tabs then grommet over the tabs through the center hole. This will add even more strength to your banner.

Banner Ups are the most convenient and easiest way to grommet your banners. I use the Bravo tabs and will absolutely never metal grommet again. Once applied, they are as strong as any metal grommet and when combined with banner tape, outdoor banners are a breeze. I have several customers who love the way they work and one very large commercial customer who wants nothing else. Thanks for a great product!!

I use these and love them. I made a banner 4 years ago for a client that mounted it to a steel building for a sign. It is still hanging good today. Great product!

The banner up products work great and are quick and easy to install. I find them to be worth the extra expense over grommets due to their superior strength. In the long run they work out more cost effective for exterior banners exposed to wind as you can skip the time and energy of adding hems.

The Keder tape is great for silicone edge graphics. The tape is very easy to use and best of all you don't need a sewing machine. We also use the power tape. This is a great alternative to webbing. Cost effective and does not require any special tools.
