Chain BR08-U Standard Link, Coil Chandelier Chain with Unwelded Brass links

Chains are priced by the foot and this product will be supplied as a continuous length if possible. Chains with unwelded links can be re-sized to lengthen or shorten the chain as needed.

Link Size Gauge Length (in) Width (in) Thickness (in) Max Load (lbs) Weight per Foot (lbs)
U40 7 1.57 0.87 0.16 23 0.25

The “weight per foot” signifies the weight of a 1-foot section the respective chain, not the weight a 1 ft section can sustain. For example, if you order 8 ft of a chain that weights 0.25 lbs/ft, the total weight of that chain will be 2 lbs.

The “max load” is the amount of weight a chain can safely hold, regardless of how long it is. When selecting a chain, we recommend calculating the total weight of chain based on the length you need, like in the example above. Make sure that your total hanging weight (= total weight of fixture + total weight of chain) does not exceed the stated weight capacity.

Hang pendant lights or extend your chandelier with style using our decorative brass chain, BR08-U. This chain is handmade with solid brass and is comprised of unwelded links. The standard links offer an understated appeal that complements a wide variety of lighting fixture and decor styles. This chain can support up to 23 lbs, and adds an intriguing visual element to pendant lights and chandeliers without drawing attention from your fixture. Since the links on this chain are unwelded, they can be opened up to adjust the length as needed or directly attach to what it will be hanging from. The versatility of this chain cannot be overstated: besides use as a decorative lighting chain, BR08-U can also be used for hanging indoor plants, sun catchers, wall art, mirrors, picture frames, and more. Since brass is naturally rust-resistant, it can be used outside to hang signage, flower baskets, wind chimes, bird feeders, and other garden decor. Additional uses for this chain can be for crafts, costumes, and hobbies, as well as in light weight home improvement and DIY projects. Available in multiple finishes, you can easily elevate any lighting fixture (literally!)

Bright brass U-40 chain

A good quality brass U-40 chain, just not as "bright" out of the box as I had hoped. I only needed 2 feet, so it took a trip through my ultrasonic cleaner followed up with an application of Brasso and a coat of brass lacquer gave me the results I needed.

Julie Jenks Zorach

The quality of this chain is impressive and the knowledgeable, patient and experienced customer support is unparalleled! This will be my first stop when searching for our hardware needs! Well done.

Brass Chain is outstanding for my outside lamps

This brass chain is heavy duty and since it is made of brass, will last with my outdoor hanging lamps. Since I am in the Pacific Northwest, we have no lack of moisture so any coated steel chain will begin to corrode within a couple years. This one should far outlast those.

Acid dipped Brass chain

Just what I ordered! Great.

Hanging antique brass fixture

I ordered some brass chain with the "antique brass" finish. It matched my antique brass light fixture extremely well. The service was great and the price was right on. I would highly recommend.
