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.
It's time to take a look at our top clothesline recommendations for St. George below, we chose three models for each category while taking into account all of the things we have discussed earlier so the decision-making process should be a breeze for you.
