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.

The Wood-y ceiling airer is our most sustainable ceiling airer

This engineered wood product is a great example of sustainable material, as it’s not prepared by depleting any resource. The Wood-y Ceiling Airer has an overall width of 46cm and has generous gaps between the slats.

Our quality birch wood rack ends are strong yet lighter

The all wood drying rack has been designed with a flat bottom profile.  This means when it is fully retracted it only takes up 8.25 inches (21cm) of space in the ceiling void.  This clearance height will avoid most doors.

This eco-friendly ceiling dryer comes complete with its own pulley system

This makes it ideal as a drying rack or even a kitchen utensil hanger.  This includes single and double pulleys made from high quality cast iron with highly durable nylon wheels. Also included is a matching white cast iron wall cleat hook with fixings and 10m of quality British made cotton rope.

We can make lengths up to 3m on special request, please contact us for more details.

Your order will arrive with everything you need in the box, including fixings, to get your ceiling mounted airer system utilising the trapped warm air in your ceiling space
