A Unique Innovation

Kaynemaile architectural mesh is a patented, world-leading innovation. Made with a high grade engineering polymer it has over 60-years of material science and research to call on — we know our mesh inside out. We've undertaken extensive laboratory and field tests to ensure the product works and we keep testing it every day. It’s also award-winning — having recently been awarded Best Architectural Product at NYCxDesign. What’s not to love?

 
 
 
 

So, what is it?

Yes, It’s chain mail:

Chain mail was the earliest form of metal amour worn by soldiers during the Middle Ages.  Small metal rings were joined together to look like a cloth, then used to protect the body from injury when fighting.

Fast forward a few centuries and we’ve re-developed metal chain mail into a lightweight polycarbonate armour protecting building occupants in architecture and design.

Inspired by the movies:

Kaynemaile’s inception was on the film set of The Lord of The Rings trilogy where Kayne Horsham worked as an artistic director for the Creatures, Armour and Weapons department. Kayne produced a polypropylene version for the movies to cut down on weight - but still looked the part.

The name ‘Kayne’s-mail’ was given to the mesh Horsham produced by Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn), and the name stuck!

From the movies to the world of architecture & design:

Long after the LoTR films had finished, Horsham had a continued interest in chain mail and reducing its inherent weakness — the link in the ring. After a lot of trial and error, Horsham patented a liquid-state assembly process to produce the mesh — a world first.

Kaynemaile is now created from engineering grade polycarbonate. The mesh is made via a nil-waste process and is fully recyclable.

Strong yet lightweight & durable:

Kaynemaile is extremely robust and scratch resistant. One ring can take around 50kgs which accumulates with the more rings in a screen. The larger the screen, the stronger it is. Kaynemaile mesh is also super lightweight — weighing just 3kg per meter square. The mesh doesn’t suffer movement fatigue and the colours are built-in so won’t fade or rub-off. It truly is a wonder product!
