Austral Slenderline 20 Clothesline

Strong, sturdy and reliable the Austral Slenderline 20 Clothesline is the perfect answer to a tight narrow pathway. Austral designed the Slenderline 20 especially for the narrow areas of your home where normally a conventional clothesline would not fit.

The Slenderline 20 has 20m of line space, 6 lines for optimum drying, folds flat to the wall when not in use, or you can have your Slenderline 20 free standing as it now comes with an optional ground mount kit.

If the width of this clothesline does not suit the space you have, watch this video to show how it can be customised with width modification.

Installation Note: If you require drilling into existing concrete for your clothesline installation please contact us on 1300 798 779 to discuss, as there is additional labour and charges.

  • Mount to a wall, or have it free standing on posts
  • Durable and solid steel construction

Can I make the width of my Austral Fold Down clothesline smaller? Yes, this is very easy to do, just trim down the front bar before assembly to reduce the width.  Can I get a special colour for my clothesline? No, the Austral clotheslines are only available in the colour/s shown on each Product Page.  Can I install the clothesline in the ground instead of on the wall? With most models, yes. Just check the Product Page for a ‘Ground Mount Kit’ option. 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 long) and 1 x Rear Spreader Bar. This is the most common type of post kit. 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. It is 2 x Posts(approx. 1800mm long) and 1 x Rear Spreader Bar. How does the Slenderline 20 compare to other, similar clotheslines? To compare all of the Slenderline 20's features against Hills, Daytek and City Living clotheslines that are similar, then visit our Austral Slenderline 20 clothesline comparison chart. 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. Can I proceed with the wall mounted installation of my foldown clothesline if the wall is shorter than the clothesline length? Yes. All Austral folding frame units have tubular steel front bars that may be shortened using a hack saw or angle grinder. You just need to reduce the front bar by the required length before inserting into pre-assembled side arms during installation. Can I hang my sheets without the need to fold or gather them to fit on the clothesline? Yes. The Austral Slenderline 20 has width of 3300mm, which easily fits a king size sheet without folding or gathering. Can I make use of the area down the side of the house by installing a clothesline if I don't want one in my backyard? Yes. The Slenderline 20 clothesline is one of the narrowest units available with a 59cm depth. This will easily fit into a narrow side path, which is usually about 80-90cm wide. I have a cement path down the side of my house, yet not enough wall space to wall mount a fold down clothesline. Is there another option that will allow me to utilise this space? Yes. Austral manufactures Foldown Ground Mount Kits and Retractable Posts with welded metal base plates. These plated kits are pre-drilled and powdercoated for direct fixing onto cement slabs and tiled floors. The alternative is to core drill a neat hole in which you can install the upright legs. Is the Austral Slenderline 20 suitable to be used as an extra clothesline for wet weather drying? Yes. This unit is appropriate for use within carports, garages and verandahs, offering lots of line space and flexibility for wet weather drying. How easy is the Austral Slenderline 20 Foldown line to operate? The Austral Slenderline 20 foldown unit has a simple one-handed operation to raise or lower the frame. Pull the clothesline up with one hand until it locks into position. Push up firmly to release the catch and allow the line to fold down.

Outstanding product and customer service

I had bought a clothes line from Bunnings and quickly realised it was not good quality so I returned it. I found Lifestyle Clotheslines and the range of high quality products at a good price was exceptional. What was even better was the 1:1 support to help me figure out how to best install it and ensure I got the best solution for my space and needs. Which I got! Thanks for all the help and wish I had started here, and not Bunnings.

10 or 20 year warranty

Seems like good construction. Instructions need more pics and less words, but otherwise pretty easy to install. I am sure the website says 20 year warranty, but it only says 10 on the box. Using screws as the stop on the open close mechanism is a bit cheap, use a nice rounds sandoff instead.

Perfectly slim Austral Slenderline Clothesline

The product was easily installed by the contractors and the foldable slim clothesline fitted perfectly along the side of the property. I would have put Excellent if this survey system was working properly, but only allows me to put Very Good.
