Wind
is the enemy of all flags, NOT rain. Life expectancy will depend on how windy it is where the feather banners are being used.

In moderate climate, at sea level, OzFeathers’ tests show a lifespan of anywhere between 15 and 32 months.

There are so many variables on life expectancy, but, there are also many simple ways to EXTEND lifespan and save money.

 

Feather Banners

Feather banners outlive newspaper AND Yellow Pages ads!

#1 – OzFeathers’ 200 denier flag nylon is the same nylon used on National flags as it is the toughest fabric for use outdoors in the wind. Thickest fabric = outlasts up to 4 times longer.

#2 – Treat your feather banner as your hardest-working (lowest-paid) employee, and give it time off when the weather conditions are extreme. Less flap = more life.

#3 – Ensure the ground stake is ALWAYS at 90° to the ground. This angle allows free-flow rotation which reduces overall stress on the fabric. If the unit develops a lean the rotational activity stops and flapping begins. Less fighting the elements = more life.

#4 – Fibreglass is tough and flexible in the wind, but it is NOT unbreakable. If fibreglass is dropped, trodden on or driven over, fibres can break which may cause future weaknesses. Don’t drop = stays tougher, longer.

#5 – Inspect regularly for early wear and tear. “A stitch in time saves nine” DOES work! When a snag or tear is spotted, STOP! and remove the fabric from the wind. OzFeathers can then administer First Aid and the repaired banner can be back at work within 24-48 hours. Keep damage small = repairs are quick!

#6 – 200 denier flag nylon can be MACHINE WASHED… use a gentle cycle with no harsh detergents then put it back on the pole to dry. An overnight wash-job will extend life. Remove road grime often = stay looking fresh.

Remember to treat your feather banners to some regular pampering, often, and they’ll bring measurable results to your bottom line.
