Kayne Horsham was Art Director for Creatures, Armour and Weapons for the Lord of The Rings film trilogy when he realised the fake chain mail that his team was creating could be made a different way.
He had an idea for how to create a 2D mesh of solid components that wouldn't suffer from the same breakages he was seeing in the fake armour his team was creating. Taking the name that the actors used to use to describe the fake chain mail he made, he created Kaynemaile - a unique seamless polycarbonate mesh.
Horsham quickly realised his invention had applications far beyond fake chain mail. He started a company and is now making Kaynemail in large quantities for architectural design in building facades, screens and curtains.
