Let us help you find the right 2.5m wide clothesline and determine which products are best suited for this width of 2.5 metres.
Of course we will cover the bases required in order for you to be able to make the right decision.
We will walk you through the different products that we have available, colour options, mounting kits, and of course, the clothesline installation options.
When it comes to the 2.5m wide clotheslines, it's not really a standard size so the options can be quite limited since most manufacturers start at 3m but let us show you a few recommendations that we have.
For starters, the Eco 270 is one that we do recommend as we can modify this unit down for you to the 2.5m wideness right from the factory.
As a matter of fact, any width modification around 2.5m is possible to ensure a perfect fit since we can adjust this unit to 2.5m, 2.55m, 2.58m and the best thing is it is completely free of charge.

The Eco 270 is a really popular unit and boasts full steel construction as you will see in the images in a bit.
The sturdy galvanised steel frame doesn't flex too much and allows drying of even the heaviest garments. A lot of clotheslines being imported into Australia have a lot of plastic parts. These don't have any plastic parts other than the cord itself.
When you don't need to use the Eco 270, you can simply fold it down flat to use the space for other purposes and when you wanna use it again, simply lift it up and it locks into position automatically.
With the Eco 270 range of fold down clotheslines, we have five pre-set depth options, depth being the distance out from the wall:
Depending on whatever space you've got to work with, you can choose a depth that will allow you to take full advantage of your indoor/outdoor real estate.
The width of the clothesline will dictate the length of drying lines so longer the depth you choose, the more lines your 2.5m wide clothesline will have.
If you want to boost the amount of drying space in a small area, you can opt for the Eco Lowline Attachment.
This one can be easily added to your clothesline and adds the needed drying lines without eating up extra space.
It simply attaches to the main frame so if the main frame goes up and down, the lowline attachment's frame will simultaneously be deployed/folded down--no extra steps necessary.
How's that for convenience?
If you decide that you don't want to use the lowline attachment for extra long articles, you can simply detach it from the main frame.
It is a really handy accessory to have if you don't have the space for a big clothesline.
Other Clotheslines to Consider for 2.5m Wide Spaces:
Eco Dual Frame
The Eco Dual Frame is similar to the Eco 270 but with a main frame that is split into two to allow for variable capacity.
It can be customised to 2.5m wide and works really well in many usage scenarios mostly if you live in a small home.
The really good thing about this is since you only use the amount of drying lines you need, you don't waste space or risk turning your drying area into an eyesore.
Austral Standard 28
The Austral Standard 28 is another unit at 2.49. So basically have the 2.5m wide by 1.5m.
This one has 12 lines and is available in three standard colours, the classic cream, woodland grey and surfmist.
This is another very popular Australian-made product and one that does come with a big guarantee as well, 20-year guarantee.
Austral Slenderline 16
The Slenderline 16 measures in at 2.49m by 0.61m and is narrower than typical clotheslines which is a good choice for small homes and other areas of the house with narrow walls.
With six drying lines, it boasts a handy amount of line space and it also comes in the three colours from Austral which can definitely match any home's exterior.
Eco Clotheslines Colour Range
The colour range for the Eco Clotheslines is the biggest in the market.
At Lifestyle Clotheslines alone, we have 6 standard COLORBOND® colours.
Our selection of finishes are the most popular according to our customers although it is not just limited to those.
We may be able to help if you have other preference apart from the ones we have since we do have access to a range of other COLORBOND® colours.
They're designed in Australia, made in Australia, and really ones that we see lasting a long time in the harsh Australian conditions.
Also, the big range of colours available as standard is great, and that customisation is free of charge.
So with the Eco range, if you have a space of 2.45m or 2.48m or something like that, we can make the clothesline exactly to that size for you for free, so it's a perfect fit when it comes out of the factory.
Ground Mount Kits
If you don't have a wall suitable for mounting clotheslines, you have a couple of options in terms of having a 2.5m wide clothesline converted into a freestanding one.
We have optional ground mount kits that will further boost the convenience of having a clothesline in your yard.
The two main type of ground mount kits are the standard ground mount kit and the plated ground mount kit.
The former is for anchoring the clothesline in grass/soil area with concrete footings and can easily be done by your or our clothesline professionals.
The plated ground mount kit allows you to install the clothesline on a concrete slab area.
This one has a plate on each end of the mounting frame's legs which has provisions for bolts/fasteners.
If you need help with clothesline installation, Lifestyle Clotheslines does have a full installer network Australia-wide.
You can simply check the box on the product pages to add it to your order or you can give us a call and we can help you with it over the phone.
