All our rain chains are outfitted for a standard gutter and are 8.5 ft. in length including the 5” triangular gutter clip for installation. In certain custom homes or apartments where more than a standard length is required for a downspout, we have a selection of 8 of our most popularcopper rain chainstyles in 3 ft. lengths. The 3 ft. extensions are easy to assemble and can be added on to the last cup or last link of the rain chain. The two together form a perfect seamless assembly and provide a sense of tranquility as the rain water moves down the length of the rain chain to the ground where it can be collected or stored for further reuse.
Interior designers have used theextensionsin a variety of ways; they hang them as tree ornaments from the bough of a tree and sometimes even use them as a decorative accessory on the front porch of the home to provide evenness and balance. Besides their functional capacity rain chains add a touch of whimsical interest to a home. They most certainly capture everyone’s attention with their beauty and classic elegance. The copper cups have also been used in flower beds with succulents planted inside them and in some cases tea- lights have been inserted in the cavity and these have been lined up on the front porch as a design element.
