If I understand correctly, banner material with a higher denier count is stronger than that with a lower count and banner material of a greater weight (oz.) is stronger than that with a lower weight. If so, what is the relative benefit of a higher denier count vs a greater weight. For example, is a 1500 denier 13 oz. material stronger than a 1000 denier 16 oz. material? If I'm wrong, straighten me out, please.
Denier is tear strength. Weight is the physical weight of the banner. Usually a thicker banner material will have a higher weight rating and is less likely to curl and will keep its dimensional stability. A high denier banner rating will make it effective for high wind areas where the banner won't shred out in the elements, especially if it is cut with wind slits for pass through.
To answer your question, "stronger" sounds like it refers to denier and not weight.
Indoor banners do not need high denier strength unless they are in high wind areas, which is rare.
Thank you for the explanation. I need to print a 3' x 10' banner for outdoor display in a windy location. I didn't want to use my 54" wide Mojave super smooth because I hate wasting material, I like the Mojave super smooth, and, unfortunately, the Mojave is no longer available.
I looked at the Roland site for 1500 denier banner material and couldn't find any. Does Roland carry 1500 denier banner material?
Unfortunately we don't. The highest stuff we have is LBV2 which is 1000 denier. We have nothing tougher than that.
Just learned that Imprintables is again carrying a 1500 denier banner material, which replaces the Mojave super smooth it used to carry. Hooray for Imprintables.
