  • Low profile contemporary design
  • Overall width is 36cm
  • Available in 5 classic colours

Additional options (optional)

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.

The Popular is our space saving drying rack

A superb workhorse, this hanging airer is made from traditional solid cast iron rack ends and high quality pinewood slats. The slats will come finished to a high standard and are untreated for those delicate laundry items.

This space saving drying rack has a low profile so when fully retracted takes up only 8 inches (20cm) of space in the ceiling void. This clearance height will avoid most doors.

The Popular

The rackends, which are 36cm wide and 10cm high come in a variety of classic colours with matching cast iron pulleys and wall mounted cleat.

This popular flatter style ceiling mounted laundry drying rack comes with 10m long traditional rope made from high quality cotton sash cord.
