Product overview

Founded in 1947 by Walter Steiner in Winterthur, Switzerland, the Stewi brand has grown to become not only synonymous with laundry products in Switzerland, but around the world.

Still manufactured in their facility in Winterthur near Zurich, the StewiLift pulley-operated Airer is made with pride from quality powder-coated aluminium and is designed to give many years of trouble-free service. Designed along contemporary lines to provide maximum functionality StewiLift Airers are as dependable as a Swiss watch!

The Airer once installed is designed to be loaded at chest 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 cluttering your precious floor area!

Due to their rust-resistant design, StewiLift Airers can also be used outside – for instance under an open verandah ceiling. Each kitset comes with all required mounting hardware and DIY assembly instructions.

StewiLift Airers are 0.7m wide and depending on room available can be set to a desired length 1.28m - 1.86m before fitting the cord supplied. Fully extended the Airer holds 18m of washing. The folding arms allow the Airer to extend 1.1m down from the ceiling for loading. Order yours today.

The instructions that come with this are not the clearest to understand. With a little trial and thought, this was installed in about an hour with clothes on it about 5 mins after that. Easy to use.

The joy a washing line can bring

about 1 year ago


Great product. Feels flimsier than expected but actually the design is such that it’s meant to swing. So if you have an issue with the line looking wonky and unbalanced then this isn’t the product for you. But it’s absolutely the perfect solution for what I needed. I’ve hung heavy loads of washing on it and it’s worked like a charm. I was disproportionately happy with my purchase and hanging out the washing!!

Indoor Clothes Drying

An excellent space-saving solution for indoor clothes drying. Recommend it is attached to more than just the ceiling Gib however (I located and managed to screw into a metal strip above). Needs to be loaded relatively evenly (one side to the other) to avoid it hanging on an angle.

This is a very clever design though a little flimsy in construction so it is hard to keep from becoming lopsided when hanging clothes and difficult to get it up and down evenly. It was easy to assemble.

Fantastic way to hang laundry away and out of sight but must you must hang clothing evenly otherwise it haha on an angle and looks unbalanced. It should have some sort of weight balances to keep the equilibrium.

Dry fast

about 1 year ago


This product is amazing! So good to have the clothes out of the way but drying so much quicker with the heat from the fire. A must have for winter!

Great indoor option

This works well and is much tidier than having a floor rack. Needs to be loaded evenly otherwise it tips and touches the ceiling.

I am very pleased with this product it does everything I want easy to peg washing on at waist height and then pulled up out of the way We have it on a covered deck so gets wind and sunshine and is out of the way when using the deck.
