Recommendations for choice
To choose a convenient dryer model, you need to keep track of the following characteristics:
Type of construction. If you do laundry frequently and in large volumes, it is better to choose models with lowering units. A good option – “liana”. It is better to refuse from the sliding dryers, because due to the constant unfolding and reassembly of the mechanism will quickly break down.
Materials. Manufacturers can use:
- Wood. The frame turns out to be strong, reliable, beautiful. But because of regular contact with moisture can lose the declared characteristics.
- Aluminum. Lightweight material with a long service life. But it can oxidise and stain things, so make sure you paint the aluminium. The material will bend over time under the influence of heavy weights, such as wet duvet covers or plaids.
- Stainless steel. Universal version. The material is strong, resistant to moisture, copes with large weights.
- Plastic. Lightweight, but not strong enough.
If you choose a liana dryer, you need to trace the materials of manufacture of fasteners and ropes. Manufacturers can use metal or nylon. The first option is preferable. If you decide to choose a rope, its thickness should be more than three millimeters.
Blocks and mountsAlso made of either metal or plastic. But keep in mind that plastic mechanisms wear out quickly with frequent use.
Maximum load capacity by weight.The figure represents the number of kilograms of wet laundry that the dryer can handle. Most often manufacturers “lay” a maximum of 15 kg.
Size.The longer the rods of the dryer, the greater the risk of deformation during use. Therefore, if you need a structure with a length of two meters or more, it should be made of strong steel and have metal rods. Fittings and ropes must also be metal.

The next thing that deserves attention is the extensible crossbars. This model has a range from 1030 to 1900 mm. As the bars are made of strong steel, they will not bend under the weight of wet things, and will not stain fabrics.
The manufacturer used a user friendly accordion mechanism. It simplifies the process of lifting/lowering and securing the dryer at a certain height. The maximum length the dryer can be lowered to is one meter. To keep the structure out of the way, it can be raised. It will be fixed practically on the ceiling: the distance is only 27 cm.
