The Most Durable Rain Chains

What is the strongest and most durable rain chain?

We often get asked about which rain chains are the strongest and most durable. The reality is that rain chains don’t need to support much weight, so all the designs we offer work great for a variety of situations. Durability on the other hand can be a factor for rain chains installed in areas that receive heavy rainstorms, winds, and are located near salt water. Here are some things to keep in mind when considering the durability of rain chains.

Finish and Material

When a rain chain gets smashed by something or if it gets knocked loose by a gust of wind, the most common way for it to be damaged is for its powder coating to get chipped.

If you're concerned about high winds or something hitting your chain, it's best to choose a rain chain with a bare metal finish. This means that there will be no powder coating on it that can be damaged. A rain chain in pure copper, pure unfinished aluminum, or stainless steel are great options.

Reliability of The Design

Another huge factor in a rain chain's durability is the design. The simpler the design, the less there is to get damaged by weather. The lineup of cast links, like the Cast Oval Links and the XL Cast Oval Links are great options when it comes to durable link style rain chains. 

The lineup of square cups rain chains, including the Medium Square Cups, Tapered Square Cups, and Extra Large Square Cups are great durable cup style options. These are also some of the most popular styles, so they've been tested in a wide variety of climates and weather conditions.

Quality of Craftsmanship

All the rain chains we offer are handcrafted with the highest quality of workmanship and attention to detail. They're designed with functionality in mind, which will help the rain chain stand the test of time. They're suited for all kinds of architectural styles and even commercial buildings. They also come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

If you're in an area that's near salt water and you're concerned with metals corroding overtime. We offer the Stainless Steel Link Rain Chain which is made of marine-grade 316L stainless steel. This will be your most durable option if you're concerned with the effects of salt water.
