How low does the laundry dryer hang from the ceiling?

The clothes dryer hangs roughly 25cm from the ceiling. The triangle on the rope stops it from being flush with the roof but is necessary for stability.

Can we get the Hanging Drying Rack made to a custom width or length?

We only make one size and we can not change the dimensions of the laundry hanging rack, sorry.

What tools do you need to install the Hanging Drying Rack?

The hanging laundry rack can be installed using a drill by itself, however, we recommend an experienced builder installs the hanging laundry rack as you will need to ensure that the fixings are secured into solid timber in the roof. Each order comes with handy instructions too. 

How much weight can the pulley maid hold?

If installed correctly onto a weight-bearing ceiling, the laundry drying rack can easily hold a full load of clothes. For example, if you loaded the hanging laundry rack up with soaking wet towels, it would be fine, it just might be a bit heavy to pull up. If you were wanting to hang something else on the hanging laundry rack, like pot plants, that is at your own risk.

What is the maximum ceiling height for the hanging laundry rack?

The maximum height is a 4m high stud. The rope on the Hanging Drying Rack is 8m long.

Can you install the Hanging Drying Rack by a fireplace?

While you should not install it directly above a fireplace in case something was to drop and catch fire, you can definitely install the hanging laundry rack in the same room as a fire. That is the best place for the hanging rack as fires create so much heat in the roof space! 

What else might the Hanging Drying Rack be called?

Depending on where you are in the world, the Hanging Drying Rack could also be known as a clothes dryer, a clothesline, a washing line, a clothes airer, a pulley maid, or a laundry maid.

What other home products does George & Willy sell?

We sell a range of minimal and functional products for the home, including the Floating Shelves and Wooden Pegboard.  We also have the Studio Roller, a wall-mounted kraft paper roll dispenser, plus a miniature version for smaller spaces - the Daily Roller, which is perfect for jotting down notes, shopping lists, and sharing messages.

A Cool and Tidy Addition to Our Renovation

Such a great piece! We always get compliments of how cool it is, our builder had to get the details after his wife said she wanted one after seeing photos of our reno. The cords are all really nice and tidy and strong. Putting it up was simple enough and the instructions were good.
