Better for the planet

A future we genuinely care about

Part of our drive to create is a desire to improve the way we use our earth's resources. Our mesh is made from recyclable composite using a waste-free manufacturing process, and requires only 1/8th the energy to produce compared to metal mesh. We are a future-oriented company, and we see it as our duty to make that future cleaner and greener than today.


Nil-waste manufacturing process

We take responsibility for all stages of the development, use and disposal of our polycarbonate mesh. We have adopted a cradle-to-cradle ethos – meaning we can infinitely recycle our materials in-house.

We make to order and our unique manufacturing process means there is no waste. If an existing project undergoes a redesign that no longer includes our Kaynemaile mesh, the material can be shipped back to our factory for recycling and reuse.

As our mesh is made from a single chain polymer, the material can be effectively cleaned back to its original state – using the same process that was used to produce it originally. This includes each of the colours we use – which are all carbon-based and can be stripped out using low-energy processes and fed back in as virgin materials.
