Chain PL55-U Standard Link Barrier Chain with Oval Unwelded Plastic 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)
U35 3 1.38 0.79 0.24 22 0.03
U50 1 1.97 0.94 0.31 33 0.03

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.

This highly visible plastic chain is lightweight, weather proof, and durable, so it's perfect for general uses both indoors and outdoors. Since it's easy to cut to whatever length you need, our plastic chain is the go-to option for use in crowd control, but it can also be used for a wide variety of applications ranging from forming aisles and guiding traffic through queues, to restricting access in parking lots and on construction sites. This plastic chain is so versatile that it can also be used in DIY projects, camping, props in theatrical productions, and for Halloween decorations and costumes!

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

This chain has links that cannot be opened, 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).
