Considerations for Chainmail Design Specs|
Chainmail should be thought of as a metal fabric.
It is very versatile and its applications are broad.
It can be light, heavy, dense, opaque, sheer, electrically conductive, shiny, matte, colored, washable etc. Basically it can have any attribute that you require in a metal fabric.
When you add cost as a limiting factor into your design, you will end up with 2 main choices for fabric. Either a coarse hand made fabric or the machine made welded mesh.
Machine Made Welded Fabric
Machine made welded fabric is used for the majority of applications. This fabric is lighter and finer than any hand made fabric we will sell. It is very strong, as all the rings are welded.
Hand Made Fabric
Hand made fabric can be made using any size of ring and material - it can be fine or coarse, heavy or light, colored or metallic. Typically, however handmade fabric is selected when a course or heavy fabric is desired.
The leadtime on hand made fabric is longer than machine made. The cost can be the same, or less than, machine made fabric if the ring used to make the chainmail is approximately 1/2" inner diameter or larger.
|When cost is of a lesser concern, or the project is small the chainmail limitation of the size and materials are removed.|
