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.

How is the airer balanced so it doesn't tilt with clothing of unequal weight?
As long as the pulleys are far enough apart and the rope tied off it won't be an issue.

Can it be made long enough to handle a queen size sheet? I want to use under a veranda are materials suitable?
This particular product will not be long enough to hang a queen size sheet. You would need to treat the wood if you wanted to use it under a veranda.

Colonial clothes dryer

I am renovating my small bathroom to suit the Edwardian style of my home, and this is the perfect solution to lack of space. It will hang above my claw-foot bath as a towel rail and look the part! I'm very happy with it.

Great looking and quality

Great quality product

Very happy with product. Easy to install. Once varnished to match existing wooden trim in laundry, stylish addition.

Very satisfied with the clothes airer

The frame is exactly as described and arrived very promptly. It was a bit tricky to install because we could not find solid wood in the ceiling to drill in to and in the end had to get a tradie to fix it securely. Now up, it works really well and looks great. It tilts as it is loaded and needs to be balanced as is expected but seems very secure pulled up to the ceiling. We are very happy with the result. I would like to suggest that a choice of cord color be made available. Black may look better in this particular set up. Recommend.
