Link and Material

Everything is created with our small, anodized aluminium links.

Kriska

The original trademarked metal link. Versatile and resistant.

Snina

The delicate one. For more defined chain artworks.

Densities

Standard

The perfect symmetry. Chain lines harmonically aligned. Suitable for most uses.

Half-drop

The intense option. Half-drop’s density provides higher opacity and a stronger visual impact.

Densities

Each project has its own personality, by offering different density options, as it is a metal fabric, we allow our clients to materialize the soul of their ideas with the intensity they desire.

Colours and Finishes

Colours and Finishes

We want to fill the world with colour. Bursts of rich tonalities.
Materialize emotions through the combination of metal chains with intense hues in brilliant and satin finishes for both Kriska and Snina links.

Customization

Customization

Every project is unique, that is why we take a collaborative approach to every detail and strive to break boundaries in support of our clients’ ideas and needs. If it is possible, we will find a way!

Sizes

From the smallest and most delicate to the most majestic and large aluminium chain projects, each one will be creatively developed and taken care of from inception through install.

Image

We know a picture is worth a thousand words - and we have found the way to translate these emotions through our custom graphical architectural design solutions. We can reproduce any picture, pattern, graphic or corporate design. Utilizing our mosaic inspired approach every link acts as a pixel.

Shapes and volumes

The limit is everyone’s imagination. By creating 3D volumes and defining required shapes, we can materialize ideas in a most vivid way.

Fixation systems

Fixation systems

Minioval

This rounded, extruded anodized aluminium rail is a sophisticated option offering an elegant finish.

40x3 - Flexrail

If profiles and shapes are required, this is the one.

Wall

This anodized aluminium rail is specific for straight fixation to walls.

Chain Drapery

When dynamism and mobility are required, chain drapery is the solution because it can be opened and closed. The chain is affixed to a flexible textile header which slides along the rail. A heavy-duty theatrical style system is also available.

Sliding Panel System

This panel system, which can be used for wall or ceiling fixation, allows independent manual movement of parallel panels. Other lacquered colours are possible.

Rainy Ceiling Grid

This hanging makes it possible to recreate a stunning rainy effect, combining different densities, chain lengths and gradients of colour. Please work with our team to develop this application turnkey to project specific requirements.

Ceiling Swags

Utilize this system to create waves on ceilings of any width and height. It is possible to use solid colours, gradients or patterns.

Custom fixation

Custom fixation

Every project is unique, which is why we think about every detail and can develop solutions to suit our clients’ needs and desires.

Inferior fastening

Used in select façade and high-wind outdoor installations, this option fastens chain strands to a lower rail that is fixed to floor or superstructure.

Chain linking

The chains can be joined together using rings, at any height and as many times as required. This option gives the curtain rigidity and prevents crossing through the chain panel.

Chain shaping

This consists of “trimming” the height along a profile to create doors, steps and slopes at the bottom of the curtain. Shaping can follow straight or curved lines to create surprising effects. The chain can be demarked with a frame or remain free.

    The aluminium in the kriskadecor links goes through our special anodising treatment, specially designed for our chains, which gives them improved robustness and offers high colour resistance against climatic factors, wear and rusting. This allows for interior as well as exterior uses.

  • Chain measurements

    Projects can be adapted to any size, height and width. Aluminium is a very light element and it is easy to handle.

    Material is delivered built to the measurements as indicated by the customer.
    The sizes always includes the rail and the support system.

    Due to the size of the meshes and the spaces between strands, the measurements may not be exact, although they are as close as technically possible to the height and width requested, without exceeding these measurements.

    For best chain presence, we typically leave 3/4” space at the bottom of the curtain.

  • Anodization

    Our links have been through a decorative anodizing process. All Kriskadecor’s anodizing machinery has been developed by our team and the whole production process is done in-house in our own facilities.

    This electrochemical process fixes the colour to the aluminium chain and also creates a cover which provides protection against light and humidity.

    One of our outstanding characteristics is the wide range of colours we offer to our customers.

    Kriskadecor’s aluminium anodised links’ maintenance is quite simple as it can be cleaned with water and neutral soap.

  • Installation & Maintenance

    The material is supplied ready to install, including the rail and fasteners. Installation is simple and does not require specialized personnel.

    Before installation, check that the element on which the feature or curtain will be installed to will be able to take its weight.

    For chain maintenance, clean with water and mild soap (such as Ivory liquid.) Vapour or water pressure machines can also be used.
