When you use crowd barriers at an event, you don’t want the fencing or metal exposed because it looks unprofessional. A crowd barrier cover, or scrim banner, adds class to your event and gives you an excellent branding opportunity. Our custom printed covers are made with PVC, mesh, airmesh, or even PVC-free material to suit your needs.

Printed Crowd Barrier Covers
Our printed crowd barrier covers give your event a stylish, polished look. We can custom print your designs on any scrim banner, letting you create brand awareness and brighten up a dull event. Crowd barriers help you organise your event, but they shouldn’t be ugly to look at. With our custom printed covers, your crowd barriers will be eye-catching.
Windproof Mesh Crowd Barrier Covers
If you’ve gone to the trouble of installing crowd barrier covers, you don’t want them billowing in the wind so no one can read them. Our PVC and airmesh covers are designed to withstand wind and outdoor air currents from large crowds. With thousands of tiny holes throughout the material, the wind load is reduced and your crowd barrier covers stay flat.
Durable Crowd Barrier Covers
In addition to being windproof and all-weather resistant, our crowd barrier covers also come fitted with hem and eyelet finishing. The hem keeps the cover’s edges from tearing or fraying, and the evenly-spaced eyelets allow you to easily attach the covers to your crowd barriers with cable ties. We also print our crowd barrier covers with high-quality, eco-friendly ink designed for outdoor use.
High Quality Mesh Banner Printing
With our fade-resistant, eco-solvent outdoor inks, your scrim banners will withstand years of sun, wind, and rain. You can re-use your crowd barrier covers event after event, without seeing signs of major wear and tear. Our environmentally friendly printing process combined with the covers’ reusability makes our crowd barrier covers a sustainable choice.

Mesh Crowd Barrier Cover Finishing
The standard finish for our mesh crowd barrier covers is a stitched hem with metal eyelets. The hem and eyelet finish is the most common choice for crowd barrier covers because of its versatility. We can also create covers that slide over the top of your crowd barriers, with printing on either side for maximum brand visibility. If you have larger crowd barriers, we can add a reinforced hem to strengthen the covers further
Choosing a Hem and Eyelet Finish on a Mesh Crowd Barrier Cover
With a finished hem and metal eyelets around the edge of your crowd barrier cover, you increase the durability of your cover substantially. These covers are the most costeffective and easiest to attach to crowd barriers, using disposable cable ties. You can cut the ties as soon as the event is over without damaging your barrier cover, allowing you to use it for your next event.
Mesh Covers with Reinforced Hems
For some scrim banners, we’ll add a reinforced hem. This type of hem has an extra layer of webbing placed in the hem to make it stronger and more durable. The reinforced hem is recommended for larger crowd barrier covers, to help better keep them in place. The reinforced hems are also ideal for areas exposed to wind and bad weather.
Crowd Barrier Covers Print File Setup Information
If you want your crowd barrier covers to look great, then you must send us the correct design files. We’ll use your files to print your barrier cover and if you don’t follow the right specifications, it could end up looking less amazing than you pictured. But if you follow our guidelines below and send us readytoprint artwork, we’ll create exactly the crowd barrier cover you’ve imagine
How to supply your print files
For artwork for crowd barrier covers, we prefer PDF files. We will also accept EPS, AI, HighRes JPEG, and Tiff files, however. We also recommend setting your resolution to between 300400 dpi (dots per inch). After your purchase, our print team will email you to request your artwork files.
There's no need to add bleed to your printready designs. You can set the design to the correct proportions of your mesh crowd barrier cover and if necessary, set it to scale.
Our printers use CMYK colour settings, not RGB. Ensure that the colour settings on your device are set to CMYK when creating your artwork. If you submit a file in RGB settings, we will automatically convert it to CMYK, which may distort the colours you had in mind for your scrim banner.
