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.

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:
Hi, Oue high ceiling is about 5m high, how long the rope goes down from ceiling?
A:
You may need to change the rope for something longer - this comes with a single 10m cord and the roof hooks should be positioned 900mm apart, so taking that into account plus cords used up in pulleys and cleat end, this will be enough for a 3m drop.

Full load of washing

I purchased this for a surprise gift for my wife as we normally dry our clothes on those small clothes horses that look like they are going to bend in half when it’s got clothes hanging on them. She wasn’t to impressed with the size of the hanging airer (2.4m) to begin with saying it’s going to make the living room look cluttered. But after a couple of days and you totally get used to it and how good it utilises the dry warm air up in the ceilings space with the fire going we have dry washing after a couple of hours! We love it

Came on time Went together well Note polyurethaned like in the photo - Raw timber which is OK as will not stain the clothes. Use it every day Recommend it

Looks great, works well

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.
