Home teams honored on arena’s ceiling mural
Fans heading to a winter sports complex can look up to their teams. A new ceiling mural, printed and installed by Branded Wraps using Drytac products, honors home teams.
The Sixteen Mile Sports Complex in Oakville, Ont., Canada, hosts major hockey tournaments, ice skating competitions, sledge hockey contests, and other events throughout the year. Recently, Branded Wraps printed and installed graphics in its main arena entrance.
“It is a mecca for the sports enthusiast and deserved an entrance that showed it,” says Sean Jeffreys, owner and president of Branded Wraps, which had previously wrapped some of the arena’s exterior windows. “Sixteen Mile Sports Complex wanted a durable indoor product which would bring the entrance to a whole new level. We immediately thought of Drytac, as we love their interior wallpaper products.”
To create the ceiling graphic, Branded Wraps combined Drytac Polar Premium, an 80μ (3.2 mil) polymeric PVC film with a high-quality, solvent acrylic adhesive, with Drytac Interlam Pro overlaminate film with matte finish. Pairing these two products enables easy installation with excellent durability against UV light, weather, and temperature changes.
“Installing a large ceiling mural is not something you want to be doing every day, especially with an overly aggressive adhesive or super-soft or floppy vinyl. The Drytac combination worked amazingly well,” says Jeffreys. “It was a challenging project but a definite success.”
Branded Wraps has used Drytac Polar for exterior installs in cold temperatures, Drytac Polar Grip for low-energy plastics on vehicle and Ski-Doo wraps, and Drytac ReTac Textures with linen finish for interior walls.
“The right adhesive makes all the difference when it comes to longevity or ease of removal. We also love the quality of print. Drytac provides awesome print profiles as well, and the service is second to none,” Jeffreys says.
