Wristbands for the summer

Wristbands for the Summer

Summer is fast approaching. For attractions, resorts, events, aquatic centres and others this means a definite spike in visitors and patrons. It also means that now is the time to start looking at your wristband requirements for the coming season, and to make sure that you have enough stock to last through the Christmas and New Year holidays.

Wristbands for Attractions

Most attractions require a single day wristband that are cost effective. When we talk about attractions we are mainly looking at theme parks, tourist attractions, miniĀ  golf, water parks, bowling alleys, fetes etc. For single day usage, we recommend using Tyvek Wristbands.

Tyvek Wristbands are waterproof, non transferable and secure. Available in a range of bright, neon colours, as well as vibrant, unique patterns, they are also easy to identify for your staff day or night. Priced from as little as 5c per wristband, Tyvek bands come in 19mm and 25mm sizes and more than 140 pattern and colour variations!

And remember, Tyvek bands by AAC are 100% Australian Made AND Printed – the only such wristbands in Australia. For this reason you are guaranteed the highest quality and best value products, supplied in the fastest time.

Wristbands for Resorts

Resorts use wristbands to identify their patrons, especially when their facilities are easily accessible by non paying guests. Most commonly, the wristbands used for this purpose are either silicone wristbands or vinyl wristbands; both are waterproof and comfortable to wear.

The best strategy to employ is to rotate through a wide range of coloured wristbands each week, so that their is a lower likelihood of replicas appearing.

Silicone wristbands are transferable of course, so savings can also be made if your resort can encourage guests to return their wristbands after check out. Vinyl wristbands are non transferable.

Wristbands for Events

Summer is the season for events in Australia. From music festivals to winery concerts, beach events to corporate parties, the industry goes crazy in the summer.

Along with this increase in number of events, comes a need to focus on the wristbands and accreditation used at the events.

Here, the recommendations can vary quite significantly; purely because events vary so much. For example, a single day event that is budget conscious will probably be OK to utilise Tyvek Wristbands. A multi-day music festival with camping, bars and VIP areas will be better equipped with Woven Wristbands.

Woven bands are the most secure, and most durable wristbands available in Australia, especially when combined with the exclusive closure mechanism available through AAC ID Solutions.

Wristbands for Aquatic Centres

Aquatic Centres and swimming pools always see a great increase in visitors over the summer, with warmer temperatures driving everyone to reverse the evolutionary process and head back to the water! The key factor for aquatic centres is that the bands they use are waterproof; and that they will also survive the rigors of such a centre. This could include saunas, steam rooms, jacuzzis etc.

Most aquatic centres will use Tyvek wristbands for this reason. Durable, waterproof and available in so many colours and patterns, they can be rotated daily.

Of course, a lot of aquatic centres are also moving to RFID enabled systems, which means their chosen wristbands will often incorporate RFID chips.

Closing word

In summary, summer is just around the corner. If you haven’t already stocked up on wristbands for the coming months, now is the time. Talk to AAC at 1300 797 478 to see how we can assist.
