Price: $54.30/$48.90 for box of 100 ft.
Bright Brass Plated #8 Sash Chain|
What finishes off a window restoration project more perfectly than shiny brass hardware? Our bright brass sash chain is a great way to tie it all together. It goes equally well with sash that have been painted or stained on the interior. This strong steel plated chain has a working load limit of 75 lbs. The thickness of the material is .035" with 21 links per foot.
Price: $67.00/$59.90 for box of 100 ft.
Zinc Plated #8 Sash Chain
For those desiring a more industrial or a simple utilitarian look, this zinc plated chain with a low lustre silver finish is a popular alternative to the more formal look of copper, bronze, or brass. The chain has a working load limit of 75 lbs. Material thickness is .035", with 21 links per foot.
Price: $42.75/$38.50 for box of 100 ft.
Red Metal Solid Bronze #8 Sash
If you are looking for an
alternative to the plated steel chains, this chain is made of solid bronze
through and through. Although the manufacturer calls it red metal,
the color is more of a satin bronze. Thickness of the material is .035", with 21
links per foot. The working load limit is slightly less than the steel chains,
but more than adequate for most windows. (70 lbs. vs.75 lbs for the steel.) .
Due to its higher cost compared to steel plated chains, one popular trick is to
use the red metal chain on the more visible lower sash and to use a less
expensive chain on the upper sash where it is usually covered.
Price: $205.00/$185.00 for box
of 100 ft.
Red Metal Solid Bronze #35 Sash Chain
The strongest sash chain we carry, Red Metal #35 has a 100 pound limit. Because it is made of solid bronze, it will always retain its attractive finish. This is significant with heavy windows that cause the chain to grind against the pulleys more. If you have a historic home with large, heavy windows, this is an excellent choice.
Price: $217.00/$196.00 for box
of 100 ft.
