Kaynemaile Armour screens provide privacy and solar shading for this contemporary home situated in Sydney’s harbourside suburb of Double Bay. Our mesh screens are fitted within simple steel frames and compliment the elegant design and thoughtful material selection.As well as fixed screens the house incorporates automated solar screens within a solar management system that detects the sun and moves the screen positions automatically – creating an innovative façade solution.
During the night, architectural lighting concealed within the mesh screen frames highlights the range of textures and materials used on the façade.
Manufactured from engineering grade polycarbonate, Kaynemaile Armour’s unique properties reduce solar heat gain into the building envelope by up to 75% without losing visual transparency. We can make our screens to any height or width without joins—we are the only manufacturer in the world that can do this.
