Plastic Chain & Plastic Chain Links

Plastic Chains

Plastic chain is an essential component when creating barriers or preventing unauthorized access to specific locations. Typically used outdoors due to the naturally weather resistant nature of plastic, chains are easy to setup, repair, and alter lengths for a very flexible crowd control system. While we carry a variety of preset plastic stanchions and chain bundle deals, sometimes you want specific colors, lengths, or thickness for a custom look. We have the most popular yellow plastic chain plus white plastic chain, orange, and black plastic chain in stock or call us to get you just about any other color imaginable.

Plastic chains are available in different thicknesses. The most common are 6MM or 1.5” and 8MM or 2” large plastic chain. This measurement relates to the plastic chain link size. The larger the link, the less links in a chain and the stronger and thicket they are. Typically, these sizes relate to the thickness of your plastic stanchion. However most plastic posts are either 2” or 3” thick so it is a not a 1 to 1 relationship. We suggest pairing the 6MM small plastic chains with 2” posts, and 8MM chains with 3” posts. You can also sometimes find 10MM chains for heavy duty applications, or 4MM thin chains which can pair up nicely with the thinner plastic stakes.

Plastic Chain Link

The best part about using plastic chain is the ability to repair or extend it. Plastic chain links can easily be replaced or added on to existing chains. So, while plastic is more prone to breaking than our retractable belt stanchions or post and rope barriers, we offer many ways to fix it. We carry a large variety of S-hooks, snap ends, replacement C-hooks, reflective repair links, and white plastic chain links. The connectors might look small, but they can link together two spans of chain for a long secure barrier. Just make sure your stanchions are properly weighted! Or loop your plastic chains onto one of our metal stanchion posts.
