Mesh windscreens are one of the most versatile and popular types of the banners used by colleges across the country. Not only do the small perforations in the material make windscreens well equipped for outdoor and high wind applications, but they also show exceptional image quality in the final print.
Windscreens can help colleges make the most of their space, and AMI Graphics has helped hundreds of schools brand their facilities and empty areas. While the material may be the same, the applications and uses are specific to each school.
At Dartmouth College, windscreens were placed along the fences at the Boss Tennis Center, showcasing the school’s logo and adding branding to the otherwise empty space.
The Big Green also added windscreens to the outfield wall at Biondi Park, which highlighted the conference branding of The Ivy League as well as the team’s past success in the NCAA tournament.
Cal Poly combined the two above applications and used mesh windscreens at their tennis facilities to show off the school’s logo and brand, as well as their men’s and women’s tennis teams’ NCAA success.
Skidmore College added a colorful mesh windscreen to a bare fence that surrounded their main turf field, introducing school colors and branding.
Southern New Hampshire University used mesh windscreens along the interior of Larkin Field, which plays host to the soccer and lacrosse teams. The mesh banners added facility branding as well as showcased the team’s conference and NCAA tournament success.
Mesh windscreens were also placed along the outside of tennis courts at the entrance of the campus, showing all of their athletic championships in the NE-10 conference.
At the main entrance of Alumni Stadium at Boston College, mesh banners were placed in small openings on the concourse showing the school’s branding as well as honoring past players and their accomplishments.
While the applications for windscreens are often seen in athletics, these banners can also be seen having success in other places across campus. At Culver Stockton College, a large mesh banner was placed at the entrance to Henderson Hall, their oldest and most iconic building on campus.
At the University of Connecticut, a building renovation right next to the main road of the campus presented the need for construction fencing to close off the area. Rather than using a generic solid colored windscreen to block the area, UConn used the space to show their dedication to the campus and their constant reinvestment in the buildings and students.
