Rain Chain’s

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.

Rick’s Rain Gutters offers a wide variety of Rainchains and other gutter accessories that can emphasis your home.

History

Rain chains (‘kusari doi’ in Japanese) are hung from the corners of your roof, attached to the gutter system to guide the flow of water gently to the ground; they have been used in Japan for hundreds of years. Years ago, people used rain chains to guide the water into large barrels to catch the water from the roof for household purposes and gardening. Rain chains are a beautiful alternative to traditional downspouts. They guide water visibly downward to the ground. This is known as an “open” waterflow system. Rain chains also sound great! Using our gutter attachment piece, rain chains are easily installed for an efficient and beautiful waterflow system.
Japanese temples often incorporate  quite ornate and large rain chains into their design.

Styles
Link designs are the closest to the original form. They tend to splash more than cup styles, and this may be important when they are considered for areas that are near doors, windows or walkways. From plain link chain  to more fancy combinations of shapes, link chains offer the most open, airy look and clean lines. They are often used with modern architectural designs, but also look appropriate in rustic settings like cabins and log homes. The Zen Loops  and Double Loops chains have the strongest Asian design influence.

Cup designs are an improvement over links chains in performance and efficiency. With open bottoms, they act as funnels, focusing the water from one cup down into the next one. Even in heavy rainfall, cup styles splash very little, so they can be placed anywhere. Cups come in many shapes and sizes, from the cute 2” Fluted Cups  to the massive XL Scallop Cup, the largest cup style available. We also offer themed chains that include the popular Hummingbird rain chain.
