Everything You Need to Know About Printing on Construction Hoarding

Printing on construction hoarding requires a different approach depending on the material the hoarding is made from. This article explains the two different methods.

Construction hoarding provides a blank canvas for advertising and public art, but did you know that plywood hoarding and Greenloc call for two very different printing applications?

Here are the basics of each:

    • With plywood hoarding – the vinyl that bears the advertising or art is first applied to something call alupanel, which is an aluminum composite that is then screwed on to the plywood panels. This process usually takes a few trips to the site to complete, which requires more site co-ordination, more material, and more contractors, resulting in higher costs.
    • With Greenloc hoarding – the vinyl can be applied  directly to the panels. This means graphics can be installed in only one trip. Also, due to the nature of Greenloc panels, graphics are glossier and more vibrant than they appear on plywood hoarding.  As well,  if vandalism occurs, the impacted panels can be easily switched out as opposed to having to replace the entire board of alupanel, even if just a small part of it is damaged.

Optimal Materials for Printing on Construction Hoarding

Whether you choose plywood hoarding or Greenloc panels, always be sure to work with a supplier that prints on high-quality 3M material for best results.  As well, be sure to  go with the optional anti-graffiti coating to protect your hoarding and make graffiti removable with a nothing more than a wet squeegee.  For more information about protecting your hoarding from graffiti click here.
