Product Description

The Austral Retract Away 40 is a 5 line extending clothesline. The lines may be extended from a minimum of 2m to a maximum of 8m.

The Retract Away is manufactured using sturdy Galvabond Steel. All external steel fittings are powdercoated for further protection from the elements. The cord outer coating is made using UV stabilized PVC to remain pliable with minimal stretch. The core is made using 27 individual monofilaments for additional strength.

The Retract Away is suitable for use in carports, garages, balconies, laundries or long narrow areas. When fully extended the Retract Away will hold as much washing as a medium sized Rotary clothes line.

A number of installation options are available: wall to wall; wall to post; post to post or post to wall. Please seek advise if fixing to alternative surfaces.

The Retract Away is easily retracted back into the cabinet when not in use. A great drying solution for any space.
