isnt there like an industrial version of chainmail, that makes/sellls it for its properties, instead of the added "fake" value of it being chainmail?

those look super fancy and they dont even give you price examples, so...
where is the rough shitty stuff thats not made for looks?
>>
I used to make "chainmail" using wire to make the rings. I didn't flatten or pin it so I wouldn't really call it chainmail. And so you know one square foot of chainmail made from 3/32 wire with 1/4" rings weighs about 2-3 pounds. if your room is 10 foot 8 ft ceiling then a curtain would weigh in the neighborhood of 160 lbs and thats on the light side.

You're probably thinking either shark/butcher mail or steel mail welding curtain.

Just make it. It's not that hard to make a modern approximation of mail if you don't want it to be accurate. Just takes some time.

>I want to use it as a room divider

that is probably the worst material for that I can think of

Don't try to make your own large curtain. Any rings large enough to be humanly feasible to build would make the final product too heavy for the top rings to handle unless you weld them, but who wants to weld thousands of rings? You can kill yourself for months to end up with a 200 lb unwieldy thing you couldn't easily hang or you can buy welded machine-made at 20 lbs.

Don't get me wrong, I make this stuff myself, but a large curtain is retarded to diy.

>>1270715
Use 10000 key rings to make a curtain, 1" rings for $554

>>1272483
Plus the cost of your own time. Might as well be $4k.
