Box Chain (Box)

Weave Description
Box chain is a simple European 4 in 1 variant that is four rows wide, with the fourth row connecting back onto the first making it into a chain weave.

The sample shown is made up of stainless steel rings made from .063" (1.60mm / 16 SWG) wire wrapped on 5/16" (7.94mm) mandrel. With a measured ID of .346" (8.79mm) these rings bear an AR of 5.5.

The weave has a square cross section at an AR of 4.8 and above, which is generally preferred. It takes on a rectangular shape below 4.8, all the way down to its minimum aspect ratio of 3.8.
