Chain ST57-U Cathedral Chandelier Chain with Unwelded Steel links

Chains are priced by the foot and this product will be supplied as a reel of one continuous chain. 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)
U45 -- 1.77 0.79 0.13 37 0.13

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.

Take your lighting fixture to the next level and showcase your personal style with our decorative steel chain ST57-U. This steel chain is comprised of decorative unwelded links. Available in 2 sizes - U28 and U45 - this chain features a florentine shape that seamlessly complements art deco lighting fixtures. However, this chain is so universally appealing that it complements modern, vintage, transitional, farmhouse, and mid century modern aesthetics as well. Replace your old chain on pendant lights, chandeliers, and lighting fixtures for an instant refresh of any space. Since the links on either size of this chain are unwelded, they can be opened up to adjust the length as needed or directly attach to what it will be hanging from. 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 steel is susceptible to rust, we recommend this chain only be used indoors. 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 for both sizes, you can't go wrong with this chain! The maximum continuous length for size U28 and size U45 is 164 ft and 65 ft, respectively.

• Max Weight: 37 lbs | Weight per Foot: 0.12 lbs
• Features: Unwelded, Cathedral Chain
• Material: Steel

This item is available in Antique Brass, Antique Copper, Black, Brushed Nickel, Copper, Polished Brass, Polished Chrome, Polished Nickel, Satin Brass, Satin Chrome, Champagne Gold, Gunmetal, White


Our steel chains are also available in bulk on reels, so this chain can be supplied in a continuous length over 60 ft. The maximum continuous length for size U28 and size U45 is 164 ft and 65 ft, respectively.

This chain can be used indoors in the appropriate applications, but will rust over time if used outdoors.

The links are unwelded so the links can be opened to directly attach onto something or adjust the length of the chain as needed.

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).

Great Chain, Great Service

Doing a new build with lots of lights in vaulted ceilings. Wanted to change out the standard chain for something “different”. Ordered a chain and once I received it I realized it would not fit. RCH handled the return and shipment of this new chain hassle free, something unheard of these days.
This chain fit the bill perfectly and being able to buy the whole spool saved us some $$$$.
We are RCH customers for life.
