The Six

  • Our best selling pulley airer
  • Overall width is 57cm
  • Huge 6 slat drying capacity

Additional options

Why would I need a 15m rope?

This is useful when you are positioning the clothes airer away from the wall or if you have high ceilings. In this case it’s advisable to also buy an additional double pulley.

When do I need an extra double pulley?

When you are positioning your airer in a larger room and away from the wall. The extra pulley will keep the rope close to the ceiling and provide a good angle down the wall to the cleat. Please see diagram on assembly instructions. (If you are using wall brackets you will need 3 wall brackets if you order an extra double pulley)

How do rubber grippers help?

These prevent your wooden slats from sliding. They are easily fitted to each end of every wooden slat by pushing them up to the metal rackends. You can even put them on the inside of the rack ends so they are less visible. Available in black only.

Wall Brackets?

Fix to the wall instead of the ceiling with our bespoke wall brackets. You would normally require 2 brackets but 3 if an additional double pulley is needed for larger rooms. For more information see the Wall Bracket TAB under the ADD TO BASKET. A black airer will come with black brackets as standard. A white airer will come with white brackets as standard. If you are ordering a coloured airer please let us know which you would prefer.

  3. Brenda S, North London

    Fantastic. Dries the laundry quickly and saving me money on tumble drying!

  4. B T, Kent

    Hello- just wanted to say very pleased with my Sixer. Probably paid for itself already and i only got it in March.
    Banned the tumble dryer it’s costing us too much to run. Thanks clothesmaid

  5. The Gibson’s , Scotland

    We are a family of 5 and can’t live without our two Clothesmaid sixes. The laundry dries so fast and it means we can use the tumble dryer a lot less which is a godsend.
    Super. thank you again.

  6. Ed T, Oxon

    Dear All,
    We are so pleased with our dryer. When I say “we” I mean mostly me; Sophie, my wife, is getting quite annoyed with me for going on about how good it is.

  7. Andrew Mason, Surrey

    The Clothesmaid is superb. I’ve now decommissioned the heated clothes drying rails that were permanently on and costing me hundreds of £ per year.

  8. Brenda S, The Wirral

    Thanks Clothesmaid, I love my ‘Six’. It’s constantly in use.

The Six has a huge drying capacity and it the largest ceiling mounted airer in our range

This huge clothes airer, in its most popular length of 2m, gives an incredible 12m of indoor hanging space – longer than many washing lines.

The Six airer is made from solid cast iron and high quality pinewood slats. The slats will come finished to a high standard and are untreated to prevent any staining or discolouration of clothing. All the cast iron parts (rack ends, pulleys and wall cleat) will be the same colour* to match.

*Please note RED airers will come with white pulleys until further notice.

With high quality fittings and slats there are 5 classic colours to choose from

The rack ends which are 57cm wide and 14cm high come in a variety of colours (black, white, blue, green, red) With its huge drying capacity it is one of our best sellers.

This attractive large hanging airer comes with 10m of traditional rope which is made from high quality cotton sash cord. It’s ideal for a large family with 50% more drying space than standard clothes airers.

The single and double pulleys are high quality cast iron with highly durable nylon wheels.

Our 2m version gives an enormous 12m of indoor hanging space - longer than many washing lines!

Your order will arrive with everything you need including fixings to get this six slat ceiling mounted airer operating quickly.

You will wonder how you ever managed without it.
