How Many Posts And Chains Will You Need
Take measurements and sketch out the area the area, bearing in mind the following:
- Posts : The spacing of the posts is a little subjective – somewhere between 1.5 metres to 2 metres apart is standard for a run of 5 posts if you have a run of say 25 posts then a wider spacing will look better although you should not go above 3 metres apart for the lightest chain. Also the thickness of the chain is an issue in the maximum distance between posts Our recommendation is 6mm chain = 3m, 8mm chain 2m, 10mm chain 1.5. If you have objects or curves to go round then the spacing between posts may need to be less and therefore the number of posts will be a little higher.
- Chain: Allow for the ‘drop’ on the chain . So if you have a total length of 35m you will need approximately 39m of chain . The standard garden chain comes in 3 sizes 6mm, 8mm or 10mm and the decorative chain in 6mm and 8mm
- Hooks and connectors: For every 5 posts you will need 1 pack of S-hooks to attach the chain to the top of each side of the post. If you want the chain to be mid-post or have a second row then you will need to buy rubber connectors AND the S-hooks.
- Plastic chain reflector plate: For use near driveways or car parks, hung mid-chain
- Accessories: If you click on either the Plastic Garden Chain page or the Decorative Plastic Chain pages you will see the ‘Accessories’ available lower down on the page.
