The Six

  • Our best selling airer
  • Overall width is 57cm
  • Huge 6 lath 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.

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 rackends so they are less visible. Available in black only.

Optional Hanging Hooks?

Our hanging hooks are very useful for smaller garments. Equally they are popular for hanging flowers or herbs to dry out. Our quality hanging hooks are bright chrome plated steel with smooth domed ends and designed to fit over our wooden slats.

Why Pulleys with cast metal wheels?

All our pulleys are cast iron. Our standard pulleys have nylon wheels which are durable. However we offer cast metal wheels which look more authentic and will last a lifetime. These pulleys are only available in black or white so it’s best to match these with a black or white airer.
