Chain ST59-U Standard Link, Coil Chandelier Chain with Oval Unwelded Steel 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)
U40 7 1.57 0.63 0.16 65 0.19
U45 5 1.77 0.71 0.2 85 0.28
U58 3 2.28 1.02 0.25 130 0.46

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 steel chain ST59-U. This steel chain is comprised of unwelded standard links. Available in 3 sizes - U40, U45, and U58 - this chain offers an understated appeal that is so versatile that it complements a wide variety of lighting fixture and décor styles wherever or however its used. Replace your old chain on pendant lights, chandeliers, and lighting fixtures for an instant refresh of any space. 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. Since steel 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 all sizes, you can't go wrong with this chain!

• Max Weight: 65 lbs | Weight per Foot: 0.19 lbs
• Features: Unwelded, Coil Standard Link Chain
• Material: Steel

This item is available in Antique Brass, Antique Copper, Black, Copper, Polished Brass, Polished Chrome, Polished Nickel, Gunmetal, Satin Brass, Satin Chrome

Want it Welded? Find it here: Welded version of this chain.


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 U40, size U45, and size U58 is 98 ft, 65 ft, and 65 ft, respectively.

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

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).

I needed a specific chain quickly to complete a 2-day job already scheduled. Amazon was available, but could not guarantee my required delivery date. I took the chance of calling RCH directly. A staff member answered my call and simply put “made it happen”. Got the item when needed at a price as good as Amazon. Very grateful

Good Quality , Fair price.

After looking at several places, I accidently found this site. Though at first, I was skeptical about the website, went ahead with my order. I was quite impressed with the prompt delivery and quality of the product and also fair price. This company was great to deal with. Prompt service and follow up even though my purchase was small. I would definitely recommend RCH hardware and use them for my future needs. Thanks.

Exactly what I wanted

I ordered a length of chain and mistakenly wrote two different lengths. RCH contacted me promptly and the chain arrived in less time than I was told. It is obvious this is a top notch company!

brass plated chandelier chain

Contacted RCH Hardware in order to purchase 10" of brass plated chain. The individual I talked with was polite and knowledgeable. Within several minutes we had the chain ordered. Promptly received e-mail confirmation with tracking information. Within several days the order was shipped and received at our place in Delaware. Everything was as promised. Wouldn't hesitate to purchase from this company again.
