Product overview

Over 3000 Kiwis have purchased the popular Colonial Clothes Airer now – a testament to their quality, style, and of course money-saving practicality.

The Airer once installed is designed to be loaded at waist height and then simply pulleyed up to the drying position just below the ceiling. Operating the pulleys is surprisingly easy and the washing will soon dry in the warmer air near the ceiling. And remember – nothing is cluttering your precious floor area!

The Airer itself features Antique Black epoxy-coated metal ends hand-cast in the traditional way. The four wooden rails are crafted from locally sourced kiln-dried Kahikitea (NZ White Pine), specially selected for its straight grain and warp-resistant stability. The rails are supplied fine sanded and ready to use but do not have a coating on them. The light, white pine colour can be stained or clear coated to match existing décor. All other components and hardware are specially selected for their quality and durability to give years of smooth trouble-free service. The kitset includes all mounting hardware, pulleys, cord set and DIY assembly instructions. Order yours today.

• Made in NZ
• Classic design with simple pulley operation

q: My concern is brown stains from the wood staining the clothes after a bit of use. How long have these been tested? Are you aware of them leaving marks at all, ever? Thanks, Ali
a: The rails are supplied fine sanded and ready to use but do not have a coating on them, they are a light, white pine colour, which can be stained or clear coated to match existing décor - so marking isn't really a problem.

q: Can the drying rack be used in an outdoor porch area? It will not get direct weathering, but will still be outside. If it can be used outside will it require further weather treatment?
a: Yes you could, we'd suggest varnishing the wood. Otherwise the Stewi Lift model is also a good idea for this kind of use.

Besides been a little heavy to pull up and down this works as you expect. Instructions are not great especially how the rope/pully system work so a little trial and error was needed to get it right. besides the metal ends everything else is store bought items put together so really you’re paying for an idea and open box solution. The actual pulley is cheap feeling with plastic wheels so I would change it to a brass wheel.

Just love my airer! Best thing since sliced bread! We have high ceilings & it is situated in a hallway just around the corner from our fire. Works a treat! Thoroughly recommend.

Thanks [for the airer], we are already fans. We have had one of these in the laundry for 7 years. This will double our capacity.
