We've been receiving quite a few emails about the top clothesline recommendations for the St. George Sydney area and we figured, now is the right time to do just that so let us help make the clothesline hunting easier for you.
It's not really that hard to look for the proper clothesline for your very own home, it only becomes difficult when you get confused with the plethora of offerings from multiple manufacturers while taking into account your needs or priorities.
What we are going to do is aid you in determining which features to prioritise on the airer that you're going to purchase, the right capacity to aim for, and other considerations when having the clothesline installed inside or outside of your home.
For starters, you don't have to sacrifice form over the functionality of your clothesline if that is one of your concerns; there are a few manufacturers which allow you to customise the airer to your liking, from dimensions to the colour--you name it.
Another possible dealbreaker is the form factor of the clothesline you wish to own, this has more to do with the availability of space inside or outside of your house, formats like foldables, retractables, and portable airers or designed to fit in compact spaces or to look as discreet as possible.
Standard rotary hoists on the other hand are more popular with folks that have big demands and spacious outdoor space to accommodate the typically wide area spanned by this design.
Beyond The Appearance
Now that we've enlightened you with regard to the appearance of your clothesline, let's briefly take into account the build quality and how the environment of St. George Sydney can impact the life of your investment.
The fact that St. George is situated right by the ocean means that this very temperate region does experience quite a bit of rain throughout the year, the temperature range varies a lot; add to that the intense sunlight and the occasional storms that hit the Sydney area, it is apparent that you need a very well-built clothesline that can withstand such extreme weather conditions.
You might be tempted to purchase a cheaper product which comes from other countries but there is no guarantee it will actually survive our environment because it is designed for a different market.
As much as possible we always recommend getting an Australian brand airer for the reasons we have stated above, a clothesline is basically an investment that will last usually more than a decade or so sometimes it even outlast the owner's house itself and believe us when we say that they really do.
For overall construction, you have mainly three options: Galvanised steel, stainless steel, or aluminium. Galvanised and stainless steel are the most sturdy of the bunch while aluminium is the most pliable.
The Differences 'Within'
The main difference between all three of these materials is price, galvanised steel is the most affordable and stainless steel is the most expensive while aluminium sits in between.
The only disadvantage with galvanised steel is it is not as tough against rusting which is vital since St. George is situated near the ocean and seawater and breeze blown by the ocean are highly corrosive.
It is a good thing that the majority of manufactures nowadays offer powder coated galvanised steel framing for their products which extends the life of the metal but stainless steel will literally last forever, that is an undeniable fact.
