How low does the laundry dryer hang from the ceiling?

The clothes dryer hangs roughly 25cm/9.84" 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 want 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/13' high stud. The rope on the Hanging Drying Rack is 8m/26' 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.

Carefully crafted and well designed - love the hanger!

G+W laundry hanger was exactly what I was looking for in a storage solution for our tiny laundry. Its minimal design is stunning and well thought through. As a designer I would certainly use this again in client’s homes.

Drying Rack

Have held off on getting this style of rack because I thought if the clothes were folded over they wouldn't dry. But on discovering the George and Willy design (most others are faux Victoria Era) I thought I'd give it a go. It is amazing, the clothes dry so well and so quickly. The design is simplistic and the rack in itself is a functional design feature. We will definitely be buying another one for our bach. Well made, packaged and instructions are clear and beautifully presented : )

Love love love!!!

We are so super happy with our drying rack. Firstly the delivery was SUPER fast considering it was coming from NZ to WA Australia. Then the ease of assembly was just great. Installation was also relatively easy for 2 novices!! The quality of the product is so amazing. We have used it so much already. It saves having a clothes line in the way on the floor
