Materials for the print
The material used in a roll up banner is of great importance for the look of the product. Some of the features that are important are surface, sheen, warping, transparency, environment, certificates and price.
The surface of the material will impact on the sharpness of the print. The DUObanner (480gr/m2) material has a slightly coarse surface which resembles textile cloth. PVC banner has a rougher surface which means the print isn't quite as sharp.
For exhibitions and areas that are lit by artificial light, the level of sheen is important. A glossy surface makes the print less visible from certain angles. For roll up banners, the preference is for a matt surface. Our DUObanner has a matt surface which means the print is clearly visible from various angles. PVC banner has the disadvantage of having a light sheen that can make it less visible from an acute angle.
The most important aspect of a roll up banner is the warping of the material. A roll up banner that has become warped looks less professional than one that has not. The materials that do not warp are the DUObanners. PVC banner does warp and also looks a little cheaper. Alongside the material, the quality of the cassette and the print technique used can also have an impact on the warp effect.
When you place a roll up banner in front of a window or a lamp, you don't want it to be transparent. Depending on the material and the composition, some materials are more transparent than others. Our DUObanner benefits from a grey block-out layer which means it is not transparent. PVC banner 510 don't have a block-out layer and will be more transparent.
Sometimes, roll up banners used at exhibitions are required to have fire resistance certificates. Roll up banners require a certificate due to the harmful substances that they release. Our DUObanner carry a B1 certificate.
For many customers, price is the decisive factor when choosing the material. PVC banner 510 is the most economical material we offer.
As standard, we supply a luxury DUObanner that complies with our strict quality standards. The reason for using the DUObanner as standard is that we can guarantee its quality. We try to maintain the same price as used for the PVC, except for the budget models. That is because the cost price of the DUObanner lies higher than that of PVC banner 510. A high-quality material that is extremely suitable for roll up banners and which looks great.
