Frequently Asked Questions
All of our clotheslines can have a MAX length of 4000mm cable length between brackets.
The “Happy Days” range of fixed and folding clotheslines are all 200mm wide at the back of each bracket.
Protrusion from the fixing points are 4 line- 400mm, 5 line- 500mm and the 6 line protrudes 600mm.
Folding clotheslines only protrude 7cm (70mm) when folded.
The Mini Lines are just that- mini! In other words the bracket width is only 60mm at the fixing point and the protrusion is 100mm for 1 line and 200mm for 2 lines. Compact and perfect for tight spaces, poolside and after beach outdoor shower zones.
To install Coastal Clotheslines, we give you a pair of cutters to customise your cable lengths.
We send you the correct screws and bolts you need to fix your frames securely as per your order request.
A set of instructions come with your purchase covering the type of material and fixing point you need to drill into.
Also, check out our installation page to get you sorted out.
1. New builds, pre-install a nogging between studs for your clothesline brackets to fix into.
2. Existing builds without noggings will need a horizontal hardwood batten (90 x 35mm) screwed into the studs in the clothesline location.
3. Please give us a call if you are unsure! 0402118654 0r 0421712197
4. Fit as per installation guide and cut your wire cables to length for a perfect fit.
To install Coastal Clotheslines to corrugated iron walls, use 2 x good quality pieces of hardwood timber 90mm wide x 600mm long x 35mm thick. Fixed to the studs, these will serve as the wall mounting plates for the frames.
Yes, we can help you out with customising your length and folding options. Contact us via email and we will get in touch to sort out your customised clothesline requirements.
Our clothesline frames are made of 316 marine-grade stainless steel. A little bit of clothesline care & cleaning is needed to keep your brackets & cables looking fine!
Within salty zones we recommend Marine Stainless 2 in 1 to clean & protect as often as needed. Amazing stuff….
Outside the salty zones a quick once over the brackets and cables twice a year with a scourer and warm soapy water will do the trick.
DO NOT place any substances on your cables/wires except washing!

What our customers say…
“My daughter was very pleasantly surprised that Dave had filled in the holes left from the clothes line he had to remove to install the new one. She was very happy about that, also loves the clothes line which will be great when the renovations are done and the family moves in.”
“Our clients were happy with their Coastal Clothesline and we are about to order another one for another project we are completing…”
Sydney-based customer, Bev from Maroubra, ordered her Coastal Clothesline via our website: “We had the confidence to buy a Coastal Clothesline online and mount it onto our wall. Nothing else on the market could be customised to fit and withstand the onslaught of being this close to the beach. We’ve been through a few rusty clotheslines and we needed to trust that it wouldn’t happen again.”
“My line is great and Dave’s suggestion to move it from where I was thinking of putting it to a different place was an excellent suggestion.”
“Honestly I’ve been looking for a decent clothes line for about 20 years that I don’t have to hide as they are all so ugly and deteriorate so quickly! Finally I found a clothesline that can suit any space and function and that I actually want it to be seen as a feature. We have several projects coming up and will use them again and again.”
“For the price of 2 crappy clotheslines that would be mouldy in months and decaying in a few years, I have 3 beautiful, functional clotheslines that will last.”
“We now have a total of 5 Coastal Clotheslines, they’re such a beautiful, functional and flexible product. We have 2 large ones downstairs, one in the sun and one under cover. There are 2 near the pool for towels and swimmers, plus another in the laundry. The design is perfect, they’re sleek and beautiful and look seamless with the design of our home. The service you receive from this company is fantastic, and all at a great price for a product that will last such a long time.”
“I am so in love with my new clothesline .. fitted expertly to blend in with the outdoor design .. it looks great and I am happy to know I won’t be throwing lines in the bin every four years .. this one is to built to last!”
“5 stars- quality, style and functionality.Thanks Coastal Clotheslines.”
