Project Overview

If you’re looking for more storage space in your laundry, then the roof is a great unused space that you can utilise. An industrial hanger is easy to make, it looks modern and will solve your hanging space issues in style. We’ll show you how to make one in a few simple steps.

Continue to step-by-step instructions

Step by Step Instructions

1 Attach the elbows
2 Attach the shorter pipes to the elbow
3 Attach the flanges
4 Paint the clothes hanger
5 Fix the hanger to the roof
  • Step 1. Attach the elbows

    Take the two 15mm galvanised elbows and screw them onto the ends of the 900mm pipe.

  • Step 2. Attach the shorter pipes to the elbow

    Then screw the two 250mm threaded pipes into the elbows.

  • Step 3. Attach the flanges

    Take the two 15mm flanges and screw them onto the 250mm threaded pipes. Then adjust all of the fittings so that everything is square and it will easily fit to the ceiling.

  • Step 4. Paint the clothes hanger

    We’re using a black spray paint to give the clothes hanger an industrial look, but you can use whatever colour you like. A good tip is to paint the screws as well so that they match the flanges. Don’t forget to use a drop sheet to keep paint off your work surface. You may need to apply two coats to the hanger and the screws for a great look.

  • Step 5. Fix the hanger to the roof

    Use a stud finder to locate two ceiling joists in the roof space. Mark the two spots with a pencil. After the paint has dried and with your safety gear on, use the drill and screws to fix the hanger to the joists and you’re ready to hang.

You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
