Hanging System

Our systems are simple and utilise the same stainless steel hook and hanging tube at the top and bottom of the screen. Large screens are supplied with lifting cord to help you install. Let us know what your ceiling and floor substrate is and we will supply you with the correct screws.

Standard top and bottom fixing

  • 12.7mm (½”) stainless steel tube, with proprietary stainless hooks at 400mm (15 ¾”) approximate centres.
  • Standard screen fixings are available for timber, steel and masonry.

Site Requirements

Ceiling: As these screens are under light tension a suitable ceiling substrate is required. Approximate tension load at each ceiling hook is 10kgs based on a hook spacing of 400mm (15 ¾”).
Floor: we recommend fixing directly into your timber or concrete floor or an appropriate fixing substrate.

Spacemaile Colours

We’ve come up with a range of standard colours to give you a wide range of looks for your exterior or interior project.

All Kaynemaile standard colours are suitable for Spacemaile interior use. All colours are in a gloss finish.

Custom Colours: Kaynemaile can manufacture virtually any custom colour for you. We work off standard RAL or Pantone colour codes. Supply us the colour codes and we can provide the swatches for final approval before manufacture. Contact us for more information.


Kaynemaile Architectural mesh is a patented, world-leading innovation. We think the benefits of the Kaynemaile product are extraordinary.


Stronger and lighter than glass. It weighs 3kg per m2 making it a perfect choice where a low static load on buildings is required. Plus our light weight makes handling on site easy.

Fire Resistant

Kaynemaile mesh achieved a Group 1S in the AS/ISO 9705 room test (equivalent to the NFPA 286 room corner test). With an ASTM D 2843 smoke index of 70.9°, ASTM 635 HB-CCI and NFPA 701-pass. We use FR-V0 material that is rated self-extinguishing. Contact Kaynemaile for more specific information for your location.

Cost effective

Our mesh goes up fast, cutting down the install time dramatically and saving costs. Our systems are simple and our light weight means we don’t need the same level of fixings as metal products. This means our installed rate is more cost effective than other metal products or glass panels.

10 Year Warranty

Kaynemaile Armour™ and Spacemaile™ products have a 10 year standard warranty. Kaynemaile Architectural mesh is UV stabilised using inorganic colours for long term stability and full recyclability.
