[Chain BR09-W] Brass Rectangle Chandelier Chain
Chain BR09-W Rectangle Chandelier Chain with Welded Brass links
Customize your fixture while showcasing your unique style with our decorative brass chain, BR09-W. This chain is handmade with solid brass and is comprised of welded links. This urban-inspired design features a multi-dimensional geometric shape with flat sides that seamlessly accent industrial lighting and decor, but it's so universally appealing that it complements art deco, modern, minimalist, craftsman, mission, and rustic lighting fixtures as well. This chain can support up to 83 lbs, and adds an intriguing visual element to all sizes of pendant lights and chandeliers without drawing attention from your fixture. This chain in particular is especially popular because fixture cords can feed through the center holes of the links for a clean, unobtrusive look. Since the links on this chain are welded and cannot be opened, you may need chain connectors in order to attach this chain to anything (and any connector must loop through the entire link, not just the center hole). The versatility of this chain cannot be overstated: besides use as a decorative lighting chain, BR09-W can also be used for hanging indoor plants, wall art, large mirrors, picture frames, and more. Since brass is naturally rust-resistant, it can be used outside to add an elegant touch to hanging flower baskets, wind chimes, hanging outdoor signs, and other garden decor. Some of our more creative customers have even used this chain in crafts, costumes, and hobbies, as well as in home improvement and DIY projects. With some of the most popular hardware finishes available, you can easily elevate any lighting fixture (literally!)

LINK SIZE & SPECS
|Max Load (lbs)
|Weight per Foot (lbs)
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.
|Spec Sheet (PDF)
This brass chain is welded, and the maximum continuous length it can be supplied in is 10 ft. If you need continuous chain(s) exceeding a length of 10 ft, you can use a [quick link connector] to link 2 sections together to achieve your desired length. Alternatively, our [steel chains] can be supplied in 64 ft - 165 ft continuous lengths (varies by chain). If you have any questions about our products or your project, don't hesitate to reach out via phone or email.
This chain can be used indoors or outdoors in the appropriate applications.
As mentioned above, this chain has welded links that cannot be opened, so a chain connector must be used for attachment. Additionally, the welded chains we receive from our manufacturer come in a continuous maximum length of 10 ft, but our quick link connectors can be used to attach multiple sections to achieve a continuous length of chain over 10 ft.
The stated weight capacity of this chain is for static and motionless applications. These chains are not meant for any dynamic uses that would cause the chain to move or swing. This includes but is not limited to: swing sets, porch swings, hanging daybeds, etc.
Our chains are decorative and should never be used for any towing, overhead lifting (other than your fixture of course), safety applications, or any uses bearing human body weight (see the examples above).
Reviews of RCH Hardware
Really appreciated Sam in customer service. He was polite, professional and patient.
My order arrived in the time frame promised and it was in good condition with no errors.
I had promised my RCH salesperson to send photos of my finished product. I had my electrician help me reconfigure an alabaster lamp into a pendant light (and it is stunning!) The chain I chose...I forget the product number....allows the wire to thread straight through which is such a lovely design feature!!!
The only problem we encountered is that the hole in the chain link, designed to go onto the threaded “spindle(?)” was extremely tight and hard to get on. And the nut that goes on underneath was not easy to tighten ...it’s corners bumped the side of the chain. We ended up slightly enlarging the hole in the chain that goes on to the threaded piece. I know that we compromised it’s strength to do that...but we are thinking it’s fine. Just wanted to tell you about that detail....but having the wire travel straight through the holes is great.
Thanks so much!
I am delighted with the quality and the beauty of this chain. The ordering interface is clean and my order was promptly shipped.
I bought a cool custom chandelier, was not crazy about the chain that came with it. RCH had great choices and sales staff very helpful.
