Our roller banners are delivered ready to use straight out of the box. However, there are times where you want to change the panel which is a good eco friendly option if the banner has only seen light use.
We have created a step by step guide to help you do this yourself once ordering a new panel. If you need help please do contact us and we will be happy to help.
Before you start
It is possible to do this on your own but it will make it much easier if you have someone to help you. Make sure you have plenty room.
What will you need
Step by Step Guide
Step 1 - Pull out the existing panel
Pull the existing panel all the way out of the roller banner base. Keep pulling it out until you can see the white leader sheet (the piece the panel is stuck to)
Step 2 - Insert the Allen Key in the side
There is a small hole on the right side of the banner stand, insert the allen key into that hole. Ensure the allen key is fully inserted into the hole, it may be necessary to allow the panel to roll back a small way to align the mechanism with the hole. Once inserted the allen key will lock the spring and stop the panel rolling back into the stand.
Step 3 - Remove the existing panel
Once inserted the the existing panel can be removed. This will be attached to the leader sheet with double sided tape. Simply peel away the panel from the leader sheet. Take care not to tear the leader sheet.
Step 4 - Remove the Header Bar from the existing panel
The header bar is the metal strip at the top of the graphic panel which holds the panel on the pole. There are two types of header bar - a self-adhesive one or a clamp type one. The clamp header bars are better quality and will be found on our roller banners. To remove the header bar start by removing the two plastic inserts at the ends. These are plugs and will simply pull out. Next, open the clamp bar, this can be done by pulling the two pieces of the header apart as shown in the picture below. The header bar will open and the panel can then be removed.
Step 5 - Attach the header bar to the replacement panel
You can now insert the new panel into the header bar making sure it is attached correctly. This means that the clip that attaches to the pole is located on the back so that the print faces forward. Ensure the panel is fully inserted into the header bar across its whole length. To fix in place push down the clamp system so that the header bar locks in place onto the new panel. Once clamped securely you can re-insert the two plastic end caps on each end.
Step 6 - Attach the new panel to the roller banner base
Now that the heder bar is attached to the replacement panel you can now attached it to the mechanism. First peel off the covering on the double sided tape at the bottom of your new panel. If you have not ordered a panel from us you may need to add this strip yourself. With the tape exposed stick the replacement panel to the leader sheet in the same position as the old panel you removed in step 3. Make sure it is stick straight and that is does not overlap the leader sheet.
Step 7 – It is ready to use
You can now remove the allen key to release the spring. It is important that you hold the panel with one hand as that it does not "shoot" back into the base. Pull the allen key with one hand, hold the panel securely and ease the panel back into the stand.
You now have replaced the panel with your brand new artwork.
