Rain chains are a beautiful and functional alternative to traditional downspouts. They guide rainwater from the gutter system to the ground along chains, cups or other designs, which creates an aesthetically pleasing effect.
Rain chains transform a plain downspout into a pleasing water feature creating beautiful curb appeal to your outdoor space. Like downspouts, rain chains prevent water from just falling out of a hole in your gutters and onto the ground, which can cause erosion and splashing. Instead, they break water flow and create a softer, more streamlined landing.
Rain Chains are available in a variety of Cup styles, Links & Loop style Chains and more ornate decorative styles.
Links & Loop style rain chains come in a variety of metals: Aluminum, Copper, Stainless Steel and Brass. A more modern and simplistic design that is a perfect accent to any front entry area for residential or commercial applications.
