Rains chains as an alternate to traditional downspouts
Rain chains are a beautiful and functional alternative to traditional, closed gutter downspouts. Guiding rain water visibly down chains or cups from the roof to the ground, rain chains transform a plain gutter downspout into a pleasing water feature. From the soft tinkling of individual droplets to the soothing rush of white water, they are a treat to listen to.
Rain chains come in many different designs and materials. They are generally either link style, resembling a chain of loops to guide the water down, or s series of cups with links between to lead the water down. These designs can be done in steel, aluminum or copper.
