Pick your color. The 1 1/2-inch standard chain comes in 19 colors that range from basic black, white, red and blue to some bolder florescent orange or green, khaki gold, magenta, and cobalt blue. The plastic chain is made from durable polyethylene plastic, which holds up as much as 100 times longer than comparable chains when exposed to UV light or sunlight. In addition to protection against UV rays, this chain is lightweight, weather resistant and maintenance free. You can cut it to the length you need to string it through stanchions to create a line pattern before the registers, or let it span a doorway or cordon off an area you need customers to stay away from. This standard oval chain has links that span 1 1/2-inches each and is sold on a spool of 200 feet.
