Chain BR16-U Round 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)
U33 5 1.3 0.87 0.2 44 0.34

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 standard brass chain BR16-U. This chain is handmade with solid brass and is comprised of unwelded standard links. These circular links offer an understated appeal that complements a wide variety of lighting fixture and decor styles, including rustic, farmhouse, industrial, and craftsman aesthetics. This chain can support up to 44 lbs, and adds an intriguing visual element to pendant lights and chandeliers without drawing attention from your fixture. The links on this chain are unwelded, so they can be opened up to adjust the length as needed. The versatility of this chain cannot be overstated: besides use as a decorative lighting chain, BR16-U can also be used to hang indoor plants, picture frames, mirrors, wall decor, and even as curtain ties. Since brass is naturally rust-resistant, it can be used to hang large outdoor signs, flower baskets, and other garden decor. Additional uses for this chain can be for crafts, costumes, and hobbies, as well as in home improvement and DIY projects. Available in multiple finishes, you can easily elevate any lighting fixture (literally!)

Awesome Chain...Awesome Service!

I was looking for a very special chain and had specific needs that the owner himself took a good amount of time to make sure my needs were addressed. Please understand this order was only for a two foot chain and still received LOTS of attention. The chain was being used to hang a piece of art. I got the acid-dipped one and was so nice, I wanted to wear it like MR T. LOL...Anyway, GREAT CHAIN, GREAT SERVICE! Couldn't be happier.
