Compact Clothes Line with Lots of Line Space
Do you need a clothes line that has lots of drying space but you are limited by the amount of space you have to install a clothes line?
If space is your biggest issue, then the Austral Compact 28 fold down clothes line might just be your ticket as it has a compact depth and yet still offers you 28m drying space.
Why this product is popular:
The Austral Compact 28 foldown clothes line is a compact version of the Standard 28 foldown clothes line, but still provides a huge 28 metres of line space.
The Compact 28 line was developed to fit in compact areas as it has a reduced depth and is available as either a wall or ground mounted version(as shown in the image above), and is finished in Classic Cream or Woodland Grey.
If the width of this clothesline does not suit the space you have, watch this video to show how it can be customised - Width Modification
Installation Note: A core hole is only required when installing a standard ground mount kit into existing concrete, e.g. a pathway. Not required in the ground(grass/soil)

"Easy purchase... They even called me to make sure I had the right colour"
It matches the house, and was very quick to install. It's a really quality product. There's enough line there so I never have to worry about running out. Thanks Lifestyle Clotheslines.
Bought an Addaline 35

"The best clothesline in the world.. It even takes King size sheets"
Our old clothesline didn't do that at all. It even comes with two compartments, so when you don't need to use the big one, you can use the little one.

This is the Addaline installed. I really recommend this to everyone. It's excellent.
Thanks Lifestyle Clotheslines!
Bought in April 2013
"It's great to move around in our small backyard to catch the sun."
I purchased from Lifestyle Clotheslines over the Net. It's very handy. It's good for when it's raining. Thanks for my Hills Lifestyle Clothesline, it's really great.

I particularly like the inbuilt tensioner that is provided with Austral clotheslines. This is the second time we ordered a clothesline from Lifestyle - their service is second to none, and the product arrived as described at a price that I couldn't get it for locally.

I recently purchased an Austral Compact 28 Clothesline.
The price was great, the delivery was quick and the installation
was straight forward and easy.
I have removed the rotary clothesline and now have a lot
more room in my back yard.
I have no problem reccomending Austral Clotheslines.

For years we had to put up with looking at our washing swaying in the breeze as we sat under our pergola to enjoy al fresco dining.
Our 18 month old puppy had to steer clear of the hills hoist whenever chasing a ball.
The Austral Compact helped us reclaim our garden for entertaining and relaxing.
Our side passage was perfect as it faces north but all other wall mounted clotheslines I had looked at before were always too wide for the space.
With much more space available now our next project will be an outdoor spa!

My clothes line was installed only a week or so ago but seems to be fulfilling all my requirements. It folds up and down easily and has a very impressive capacity for the small amount of space it takes up.
My only concern is that the ground mounting kit comes in only one size - very high. A short person can then only reach the clothes lines if the poles are sunk into very deep holes. If the holes can't be dug deep enough because rock is encountered a couple of feet down then the poles have to be cut. This was the only way my line could be installed. I wonder if the ground mounting kit could include some variations to cover this kind of situation.

I had limited space and thought I would be drying our clothes on lines of string and clothes horses forever. The Compact 28 fit perfectly between the house and the hedge - no wider than a footpath.
Yes you can but you will just need to make sure the mounting brackets align with the structural supports in the wall. If not you may be able to customise the width of the clothesline(see above) to suit the supports. Another solution would be to purchase a Ground Mount Kit(if available) with the clothesline and install it freestanding in front of the wall.
A general rule of thumb is to install the top bolt of the fixing bracket at approx. 50mm above the users head height. An average height is approx. 1800mm but you can adjust this to suit your requirements.
