Knowing how to hang banners and signs is important for clear displays. With the Banner Straight System, this process is simplified via a rust-free aluminum track, splice plate, end-caps and, as seen here, aluminum slide mounts. This piece of banner installation hardware attaches to sign grommets using easy thumbscrews. Tighten along any segment of the aluminum track to pull banners taut and hold signage in place.
Purchase rust-free aluminum slide mounts here as supplemental or replacement pieces. Or, to start from scratch, they also come with the complete 4-Foot Banner Straight Mounting Kit. Great for reliable commercial sign displays, inside or outside.

*Please note, regardless of which style banner bracket you are installing, if the banner brackets are being installed on a “square” pole higher strength stainless steel banding is strongly recommended.

Plastic corner edge guards are also available/recommended for Square post installations (please call for details).

If you plan to install a large banner (over 12’ sq ft) or one that may be subjected to windy conditions please consider our steel arm or Banner Saver products
Outside: If the banner is going to be installed outside on a wall or a post you should consider our steel banner bracket pairs or, if the banner will be subjected to windy or gusty conditions, then the “Banner Saver” product will be the hardware of choice.
Please note: the light duty CitySite fiberglass banner brackets can and have been used successfully in many exterior project but they should not be used in applications where winds of over 10 Mph are common or where gusty or shifting winds are possible.
What size is your banner?
Pole or wall mounted banner arms typically range in widths of between 12” and 36” and anywhere from 2’ to 10’ tall. Keep in mind the weather conditions that will exist at your banner location and select the banner bracket solution that best matches these conditions and your banner size. Larger banners or banners in windy or icy location may require reinforcing and heavy duty hardware and the banners themselves may require reinforcing to survive in adverse weather conditions. Please also note, most of our banner brackets are sized so that they are approx. ½” to 2” longer than the width of your banner (i.e. 26” arm for a 24” banner).

Before Installing your banner brackets!
Regardless of which type of banner bracket you are using, it should be installed by a qualified, experienced person. Please also note, many municipalities may have specific sign and banner regulations which dictate the maximum size of a banner, where and how a banner can be displayed and for what length of time. It is always best to check with your local Planning Department before making and installing any banner. If you have any questions regarding the assembly or installation on any of our banner bracket products, please call or e-mail us with any questions.
