No, not entirely, the two smallest sizes, 500mm & 600mm are not suitable for the optional cover. Any depth size from 750mm upwards will suit the cover.
Can I install the clothesline in the ground instead of on the wall?
Yes, the Urban 3000 has an optional Ground Mount Kit(Posts) available. You will see an option on the right side of this page below the price called 'Add Ground Mount Kit', select either Standard or Plated to suit your needs, refer to the differences between Standard and Plated in the questions below.
What does ‘Standard’ Ground Mount Kit mean?
This is the type of post kit that you will need if you are installing the posts into a grass/soil area in the back yard. It is 2 x Posts(approx. 2200mm in length to give an overall height above the ground of approx. 1.8m) and 1 x Rear Spreader Bar. This is the most common type of post kit, this is where you dig two holes for the posts and cement them into the ground.
What does ‘Plated’ Ground Mount Kit mean?
A Plated kit allows you to bolt the posts down onto an existing concrete area rather than core drilling or jack hammering holes into the concrete. The posts have metal plates welded on the bottom with holes for dyna-bolting down onto the concrete, scroll through the images above to see what the base of a Plated Post looks like. The kit consists of 2 x Posts(approx. 1800mm height) and 1 x Rear Spreader Bar. These posts are also height adjustable.
What is a ‘Lowline Attachment’ ?
This is a very popular option that is only available with Urban clotheslines. This is an extra clothesline frame with 3 lines that sits below the main frame(approx. 400mm below). This option gives you more line space without taking up any more room. The Lowline can fold up and down with the main frame or disconnect and leave it folded down against the wall or posts.
Can I install a fold down clothesline on a wall other than brick?
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.
Can I install a fold down clothesline on a fence?
Yes, this is very similar to mounting on a non-brick wall, the mounting brackets would need to align with the fence posts and they would have to be nice and solid. You will also need to check council regulations in your area to see if this is allowed. A freestanding Ground Mount Kit is an alternative once again.
What is the best height for installing a fold down clothesline?
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.
What size is best for a family of 4 – 5?
The Urban 3000 clothesline has several depth sizes available which is great, generally the larger 1200mm or 1500mm depth options are the best sizes to go with for a larger family as it is always best to have too much line space than not enough. You will find a ‘Line Space Information’ chart in the images above to help you out.
If I order an Urban Clothesline today, how long will it take to receive?
This can depend on the current volume of orders at the time and your location but generally it is approx. 7 - 8 business days to produce and transport time from the factory in Sydney to you can be approx. 1 - 7 business days.
Are the Urban clotheslines good quality?
Yes, in fact they are now backed by a 10 year manufacturers warranty just like the big brands. The complete frame is constructed from galvanised steel with a large choice of Colourbond powder-coat finishes to choose from. They are a genuine Australian Made product.
