Biggest in Australia: Cactus printed the 2000sqm wrap at Sydney Airport on its Fujifilm Uvistar

Cactus Imaging has printed what is believed to be the biggest building wrap in Australia at present, with a 2000sqm job at Sydney Airport, for new specialist large format media outfit Wide Open Platform.

The job was printed at Cactus on its Fujifilm Uvistar grand format UV inkjet printer, and is the first wrap to be printed to new fire retardant standards on the mesh. Cactus general manager Keith Ferrell says the new fire standard will become the norm.

It took Cactus several months of r+d with various coatings to ensure ink adhesion on the new mesh, to ensure itw as strong enough.

Cactus is owned buy oOh! Media, but works as an independent print house with oOh! as one of its clients. It was founded by Warwick Spicer and Keith Ferrell in 1992. They sold to Opus Group a decade ago, with oOh! buying it two years ago for $6.1m. Spicer has since retired but his son Nigel is general manager.
