Architectural Mesh by Kaynemaile
- story by MaterialDistrict
Kaynemaile architectural mesh is an innovative material used for exteriors, interiors and lighting. Made from 100% high grade polycarbonate – the same material used for astronaut helmets and aeroplane windshields.
Creating beautiful and unique designs is easy with Kaynemaile. It is tough and impact resistant, yet flexible enough to be stretched over a frame to execute complex three-dimensional shapes.
Kaynemaile is not restricted by panel size—screens can be made to any height or width without joins or distracting gaps. Making custom screens to any size means less structure, less fixings, and less time on site.
Weighing close to half a pound per square foot, Kaynemaile is incredibly lightweight. It can be used in place of steel sheets or metal mesh and dramatically cuts the static load on buildings. This means labor costs for installation are reduced.
How Kaynemaile works to keep building interiors cool
Kaynemaile has a unique three-dimensional mesh structure which, significantly reduces both radiant heat through direct sunlight (EMR) and thermal conductive heat from entering the building envelope by up to 70%. This gives the ability to let daylight in and manage the passive solar gain—all while maintaining visual transparency. Air conditioning system design costs are also reduced.
The three-dimensional mesh structure enables free airflow movement through the mesh providing a cooling effect and keeps buildings well ventilated.
