Kaynemaile Architectural Mesh is strong and robust, liquid state assembly means each link is manufactured without any joins. The seam free links are interconnecting, production via this patented technique delivers an architectural mesh material of unlimited size.

Sunlight (UV) and exterior weathering:

  • UV stabilised Makrolon Polycarbonate.
  • Independently lab tested by Building Research Association of New Zealand (BRANZ). 
  • Results show minimal structural/tensile deterioration of the mesh after 2000 hours of continuous testing in New Zealand’s harshest UV conditions—some of the toughest in the world. 
  • All colours are light fastened, mineral-based pigments to maintain colour and recyclability. Real world full external exposure testing after 8 years, shows 95% original strength.

Tensile strength and impact resistance:

  • Astron burst testing with a point load area of approx. 32mm on small 140 x 140mm samples show a peak resistance of 279kg.
  • Note: The accumulated strength of seamless mesh increases proportionately with the size of the panel

Drag coefficient:

  • Cd = 0.8, which is 40% less than an equivalent two-dimensional or woven mesh. 
  • Full wind tunnel test results for all angles available.
