Frequently asked questions

What do I receive to help me install my Coastal Clothesline?
To install Coastal Clotheslines, we give you the correct screws and bolts you need to fix your frames securely as per your order request. A set of instructions comes with your purchase covering the type of material and fixing point you need to drill into.  Also, check out our INSTALLATION page and youtube to get you sorted out.

How many metres of clothesline do I need?
Based on a household of 1 to 2 people, a clothesline requires 5 to 15 metres of HANGING LINE SPACE; 3 people need 15 to 20 metres; 4 people need 20 to 25 metres and 5 people need 25 to 30 metres. Measure the total available wall space on your wall then select a clothesline that fits INSIDE that measurement.

I have a stud wall, what should I do?
Check that you have studs every 450mm vertically along your wall. Our frames line up with the typical 450mm stud spacings.  If you don’t have 450mm centres, then:

  • Get in touch to specify your overall clothesline measurement, from the outer tail end stud (frame 1) to the other tail end stud (frame 2). We can swage your cables accordingly; or
  • Fit timber wall plates to enable correct mounting of the frames; or
  • Fit as per installation guide and any extra length of cables will need cutting and re-swaging at your nearest hardware supplier.

I have a corrugated iron wall and my studs are not at 450mm spacings. How do I fix to it?
To install Coastal Clotheslines to corrugated iron walls, use 2 x good quality pieces of hardwood timber 180mm wide x 900mm long x 35mm thick.  Fixed to the studs, these will serve as the wall mounting plates for the frames.

My situation is a bit different. Can I customise your products to suit?
Yes, we can help you out with a myriad of situations. Contact us via email and we will get in touch to
 sort out your customised clothesline requirements.

How do I maintain my Coastal Clothesline?
Our clothesline frames are made of 316 marine-grade stainless steel.  Just a quick once over every blue moon with a scourer will do the trick.  Moving parts will benefit from a touch of lanolin or similar.

How long will my order take?
Our range is manufactured by hand and we endeavour to keep strong stock levels at all times. Depending on demand, fulfilment takes 2 to 10 working days. Please allow between 2 and 14 days for delivery.  EMAIL us if you need your order sooner and we will try to meet your deadline.
