The SwiftDry Coast Line Clothesline is a highly durable clothesline that has large spaces between the lines - designed to catch the breeze. It has a linear hanging space of up to 42m for at least two large wash loads. This sturdy clothesline will complement your architecture and landscape with it's modern black finish, and stylish, strong design.
With 230mm of air circulation space between each line, your washing will dry faster than ever before, and it’s sleek, compact, linear design allows it to be installed alongside your house or fence, making your laundry less conspicuous and saving precious space on your lawn or patio.
The sturdy galvanised T bar posts are made of heavy steel tube for maximum durability, and powder coated in a matt black finish over top of the galvanising for extra weather protection, and a high class, stylish look to complement your architecture or landscape.
The high strength traditional clothesline wire included is designed to be tensioned up easily with the tensioning joiners provided, and when fully loaded, the SwiftDry Coast Line will take a large load of wet laundry or bedding.
The In-concrete sleeves (available separately if desired) are concreted in first, and allow the poles to be removed temporarily, and the washing line to be taken down, maximizing your outdoor space when needed.

How to Place and Order Online
We ship daily across New Zealand using NZ Post, PBT, and Fastway/Aramex.
All in stock and standard orders will be shipped the same or next day following order/payment.
Shipping costs are calculated on the checkout page. We keep shipping costs as low as possible and in line with our carrier's costs as much as possible. Because of the shape, size, and weights of items, charges are calculated per item so combined shipping is not applicable as it does not generally save on our freight costs.
Can I shorten the length of a Fold Down Clothes Line to fit a smaller space?
Yes. All Austral Fold Down Clothes Lines have tubular steel front bars which may be easily reduced in length with a hack saw or angle grinder. Reduce the front bar by the required length prior to inserting into pre-assembled side arms during installation.
Can I hang my sheets without folding or gathering them to fit?
All clotheslines with any lines longer than 2.4 meters will fit all sheets, any way around without folding or gathering them to fit. As sheet sizes vary significantly, we recommend checking your sheet size, along with the clothesline product pages to determine the most appropriate model.
At what height should I install my Fold Down clothes line?
Austral recommends fitting a Fold Down frame with the top bolt approximately 50-100mm above the user’s head height. If the frame is set too high, the user may be unable to fold the frame down, as the frames need to be pushed up to release the locking mechanism. Consideration may need to be given to taller users, or if the Fold Down is to be installed in a walkway.
I don’t want a Clothes Line in my back yard. Can I put one down the side of the house?
Yes. Austral manufactures one of the narrowest Fold Downs available. Most side paths are only 800-900mm wide. The Austral Slenderlines are only 610mm deep and will easily fit into a narrow side path. Both the Slenderline 16 and 20 may be wall mounted or free-standing.
I have a cement path down the side of my home and not enough wall space to place a Fold Down. Is there an alternative?
Yes. Austral manufactures Plated Posts for Fold Downs and RetractAway options. The Posts have welded metal base plates. The Plated Ground Mount Kits are pre-drilled and powder coated for direct fixing onto cement slab, decking etc.
Alternatively, the cement path may be core drilled to 200mm diameter, to facilitate the installation of upright posts. Consideration should be given to existing services which may be installed along the fence lines
Can I install a Clothes Line on my garage/shed wall?
As long as you have sufficient structural support on the intended wall you can install a Clothes Line directly on the wall. You may need to install the Clothes Line using a Ground Mount Kit near the garage/shed if there is not sufficient structural support.
Can I install a Clothes Line directly onto a fence?
Please check with your local Council and/or Strata Body for regulations governing the installation of a clothesline on boundary fence. Existing fence posts would need to be structurally sound to support dynamic (working load). A Colourbond fence is not suitable for direct fixing. Consider installing a Ground Mount Kit close to the fence to ensure adequate support.
Can I install a Clothes Line on a blue sheet wall?
Yes as long as there is sufficient structural support. If you are about to renovate or your home is at planning stage, you could allow for additional structural support to suit your choice of clothesline.
What options are available for an undercover Clothes Line?
You have several options. The Austral RetractAway Clothes Line is suitable for use in carports, garages and verandahs and will lock in at a minimum distance of 2m in length.
The Fold Downs range in depth from 610mm – 935mm – 1500mm. They have more line space than other Fold Downs so offer far more flexibility for winter drying. The Fold Downs are suitable for internal and external use as they can fit into any distance required.
Some home owners have installed a second Ground Socket for a FoldAway Rotary under a pergola or carport. During summer the clothes are dried in the sun and during winter they move their FoldAway Rotary under cover for wet weather drying. Remember that line drying your clothes for even a few hours will save power and energy – even if you do finish them off in the electric dryer!
I love my Rotary Clothes Line but I’m worried about down sizing to a Fold Down.
How does line space compare?
Yes the Fold Downs do hold less washing than the traditional Rotary but Austral’s Fold Downs do have more line space than other Brands. Austral’s Add-A-Line Fold Down holds a massive 35.7m of line space – that’s approximately ¾ the line space of a Rotary! Even the Standard and Compact Fold Downs hold 28.5m. If you do a lot of washing at once – for example on your one day off – you could install 2 Fold Downs side by side. That would be equivalent to the largest of Rotaries.
Are Austral Clothes Lines easy to use?
Austral’s Fold Down frames may be lifted and lowered using a one-handed operation. The centre front bar is lifted slowly to lock the line into position, or pushed up firmly to release the Catch to fold down.
Austral’s FoldAway Rotaries require two hands to lock and unlock the line into position. The lines are quite tight initially as they are tensioned to prevent line sagging. This operation becomes easier after a few uses. This action may prove difficult for users that suffer from arthritis or a lack of strength in their hands or wrists.
Why is the recommended area greater than the clothes line size?
You should allow approximately 25-30cm extra depth for operational ease of a Fold Down. A Rotary requires a little more room around the exterior line. This allows sheets, blankets etc. to blow in the wind without brushing against shrubbery or fences.
How easily can I get spare parts?
Austral’s Clothes Lines are made in Australia so spare parts are readily available for all models.
Why should I use an outdoor clothes line rather than my electric clothes dryer?
The obvious answer is duty to your environment. Not only do you reduce your carbon foot print significantly by line drying your clothes but you will also have much smaller power bills. Your clothes will last longer and smell fresher when line dried.
We realize it isn’t always practical to dry outdoors all year around but ask you to consider an alternative greener approach. Consider a second undercover clothes line or line drying wet clothes for as long as possible before finishing damp clothes in an electric dryer.
Austral’s Clothes Lines use free solar and wind energy to dry your clothes. Our clothes lines are virtually maintenance free and will continue to save you money for many years.
