Rain chains

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 ('kusari doi' in Japanese) in concept are not a new idea. For hundreds of years, the Japanese have used the roof of their homes to collect water, transporting it downward with chains and finally depositing the rain water into large barrels for household water usage. Japanese temples often incorporate quite ornate and large rain chains into their design. Rain chains have been spotted in South America, where chain is easier to obtain that machined downspouts.

We have taken the original concept and expanded it into a broad line of products, incorporating both cup, link and even hybrid styles into their offerings. Using pure copper, brass and even aluminum for materials, our company has created a wide range of both styles and prices.

All Lotus style rain chains are open at the bottom of each cup, they guide the water downward quite efficiently. Each one comes with a gutter attachment rod.
