Chain BR23-U Standard Link, Coil Chandelier Chain with Rectangle 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)
U80 1 3.15 1.5 0.31 75 0.78

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 heavy duty brass chain BR23-U. This chain is handmade with solid brass and is comprised of unwelded standard links. These large oval 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 75 lbs and its substantial dimensions offer a balanced, proportional look for large and extra large chandeliers. 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, BR23-U can also be used for hanging suspended shelves, indoor plants, large mirrors, 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!)

This chain can be used indoors or outdoors in the appropriate applications.

Even though the links on this chain are unwelded, they are too thick to be manipulated, so a chain connector must be used for attachment.

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).
