Chain IR49-U Standard Link, Coil Chandelier Chain with Rectangle Unwelded Iron 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)
U32 9 1.26 0.47 0.13 47 0.13
U50 5 1.97 1.02 0.2 59 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.

Customize your fixture while showcasing your unique style with our decorative iron chain, IR49-U. This chain is hand forged of solid iron and is comprised of unwelded oval links. The square sided links offer an understated appeal that complements a wide variety of lighting fixture and decor styles, which is why it's one of our most popular chains. This style is available in 2 sizes, U32 and U50, so you can pair them with different sized lighting fixtures for a cohesive look throughout your home. Even though this chain is unwelded, the links are too thick to be manipulated, so you may need to use connectors with this chain. The adaptability of this chain cannot be overstated: besides use as a decorative lighting chain, both sizes of this chain can be used to hang indoor plants, picture frames, mirrors, wall decor, and even used as curtain ties. The adaptability of this chain cannot be overstated: besides use as a decorative lighting chain, both sizes of this chain can be used to hang indoor plants, picture frames, mirrors, wall decor, and even used as curtain ties. Since iron is susceptible to rust, we recommend this chain only be used indoors. 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 for both sizes, you can't go wrong with this chain!

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).

Good Product...Great Service

I found the links I needed to extend my dining room chandelier after a long search.
This company was great to deal with. Prompt service and lots of updates even
though my purchase was small. I would definitely recommend RCH hardware to
anyone. Thanks

Great service and product

I had to extend/replace the chain for a dining room chandelier that I purchased thru eBay. I searched online for a while, and ultimately called RCH Hardware because they had a suitable looking chain ad a reasonable price. It was easy to reach a salesperson who helped me figure out what I needed. He offered a discound based upon the amount of chain (30'), and I completed the order on the phone. Email notifications regarding shipping and delivery were to the point and accurate. The chain was exactly what I needed and of excellent quality. The chandelier is hung and looks beautiful. Thank you, RCH! Great job all the way around. I'm a fan, and will return for some of your other products.

Thank you so much for the review!
