Unfinished Chains

Welded Straight Link steel chains have endless uses in the home or workplace - both inside and out - and are stronger than unwelded chains of the same wire size. 

We offer a selection of the most popular sizes in a choice of three protective finishes – zinc plated, hot galvanised and black.  For a definition of these and how to measure chain, please refer to our Chain Buying Guide.

All our Welded Straight Link steel chains are made to UK and international standards.  Most importantly, they are commercial chains. Whilst, therefore, each has been quality tested, none is certified for heavy loadbearing purposes and should not be used for overhead lifting, load binding or towing. 

To make selection easier, we have provided a general load guide for each chain. Please refer to the “Maximum Load” information under the Specification tab for each. If you are uncertain as to which chain you need then please contact us for advice.

Whilst images are close to actual product sizes, they are for illustrative purposes only.  Please refer to product specifications for dimensions.
