Outdoor Banner Frames - Choosing the Right One
Whether you're part of a small shop or a large organization, every business needs to get their name out there and draw in new customers. Advertisements and banners are often a popular way to do this, especially for local businesses. A well placed banner or sign can draw more people into your shop. Not only that, displaying your brand at local events can be a great way to create brand awareness.
To get you started and to help you choose the right banner frame for you and your company, here are 4 different banner frames that you can use outside:
Types of Banner Frames
Wall Mounted Banner Frame
The wall mounted frame adopts a simple design to showcase your banner or advertisement. Essentially, a large square or rectangle, the banner is attached by stringing banner bungees or zip ties through the grommets on the banner and then around the pipe just to the side of it.
The frame is mounted to the wall using our Rail Support fittings and can be mounted to just about any surface including wood, brick, and concrete.
The result is a simple solution that is easy to assemble and cost effective.
For example, a large 8’ x 4’ wall mounted frame with size 7 fittings and pipe would be about $240. This includes four 90° Elbows, four Rail Supports, two 8’ long lengths of steel pipe, and two 4’ lengths of steel pipe.
Compared to other banner frames, this is a very cost effective solution. In addition, the value is unsurpassed as a Kee Klamp frame is a much more durable solution. A Kee Klamp frame is built with galvanized steel that can last up to 20 years without showing any signs of rust. When you average that out, it’s like paying $12 a year for a frame.
Staked into the Ground Frame
This frame is staked into the ground to keep it upright. It features a similar design to the other frames mentioned here. Again, essentially a rectangle or square shape in which the banner is placed inside and attached using bungees or zip ties.
It's commonly used for banners at sporting events as you can in the images below. In the particular frame for Tough Mudder, you can see how simple of a design they used. Just three lengths of pipe, two elbow fittings, and a banner attached using zip ties. An easy to assemble solution that is extremely cost effective.

Free Standing Banner Frame
The free-standing frame is built to stand upright by itself without the need to be planted into the ground or mounted to a wall. This often makes for a great portable solution as the frame can be easily moved.
However, just because it’s portable and not mounted to the ground or wall, does not mean it’s not a durable solution. The weight of the steel pipe and fittings keeps this frame upright and prevents it from tipping over in most situations. During stronger winds though, a sandbag placed on the bottom may be necessary to provide additional stability.
Again, the banner is typically attached to frame using bungees or zip ties.
A-Frame Banner Frame
The A-Frame is built to replicate the shape of an “A”. It’s suited for displaying advertisements on two, opposing sides. It’s free-standing, meaning it’s not mounted to the ground or base and can be easily moved.
Using just a few fittings, the A-frame can be replicated using Kee Klamp fittings and pipe. The Single Socket Tee helps to create the a-frame. This fitting is used at the top of the frame and when used in this way, allows you create almost any angle. Meaning you can decide how tall and skinny or how short and wide you want the frame to be.
While the frame can be built to attach a banner using banner bungees, much in the same way as the wall mounted frame above, this a-frame pictured here, uses a pair of M50 fittings to support the poster board place on top of it.
Advantages of Using Kee Klamp
Often, sign frames are built using cheap material and don't stand up to the abuse they go through. Harsh weather, transportation, assembly and deassembly can all take a toll on your frame. In addition, other banner frames are typically built in only a few specific sizes. Leaving your display options limited.
Kee Klamp provides for the perfect solution. Using Kee Klamp fittings and pipe, you can build a banner frame that is durable yet rivals the cost of many competitors. In addition, the other benefits of using Kee Klamp are unmatched by any other solution. The advantages include:
