Polyethylene, approximates Form C, given dimensions: width of the material x inner length of link x outer width of link
Some home-owners use such a polyethylene chain as the drain chain on a rain gutter but plastic chains are also used quite often as a means of cordoning off areas that need to be isolated for reasons of safety or what have you. This cordoning, however, is only accomplished by means of marking out an area and would not be sufficient to actually secure it from entry – for that a STEEL CHAIN would be much more appropriate. Plastic chains can also be well used for hanging signs and pictures as long as they are not too heavy. What the actual weight limits for these chains are has not been provided to us by the manufacturer, so you are on your own!
The individual plastic links are completely closed, meaning they cannot be bent open – you can of course use a plyers to cut the link and then bend it in order to hang something on it.
Link chains are differentiated by the shape of their links: Type A are short linked chains whose links have a shorter length (widths being equal) - the A links, then, are somewhat rounder in shape than those of Type C, whose links are more “stretched out” and, widths being equal, are in fact simply longer. Alles klar? There are all sorts of other types of chains – ring chains, chandelier chains, knotted chains, band chains and even more – but none of them have yet made it into our assortment.
Next up is how to understand the given dimensions for individual chains.
So, the first number gives the thickness;
the second number gives the length of the link measured on the inside (of the hole - which means the width of both the sides is not included);
the third number gives the width of the chain link on the outside, which means the width of the link material is included in that measurement.
This way of giving the measurements has the advantage that when knowing the length of a piece of chain it is easier to determine the number of links there are in that length because the thickness of the material of the links that are connected will not be counted twice at the point of overlapping, which would give a number larger number than it should be. For example: a 50 centimeter piece of steel chain with the given dimensions 1.5 x 23.0 x 8.0 mm consists of 21.74 chain links (500 mm divided by 23 mm).
