Clotheslines

How long from ordering will it take for Aussie Clotheslines and Letterboxes to install my clothesline?
Depending on current levels of demand, we can usually install within 7 to 10 business days of the order being placed.

Why can't I book in an exact time for my installation?
Due to the continually changing nature of our work, it is difficult to designate a precise time for your installation. We will, however, call you the evening prior to the installation to inform you of the approximate time our installer will arrive. If given enough notice we can organise the booking to be either AM or PM.

I want to have a clothesline installed, do you remove my old clotheslines?
Yes, we can remove, take away and dispose of your existing clothesline.

In which areas do you offer installation?
We install within the Perth Metro area - see our Service Areas Map. If you are outside the Perth metro area and require installation, you can call our office on 9300 3014 to discuss the possibility of installation with one of our staff members.

What do I need to know in order to determine which wall mounted folding frame clothesline is the best for my area?
If you want to have a wall mounted clothesline, you need to determine the length available along the wall and the depth available out from the wall. Keep in mind that wall-mounted folding frame clotheslines can go over gutters and windows, but must be a minimum of 300mm from a gas hot water system depending upon the model. Also, allow extra space to stand whilst lifting and lowering the frame.

I have a fence that I want to install a folding frame clothesline onto. Is this possible?
Most councils prohibit attaching any structure to a Colorbond boundary fence. If you want to use the area against a Colorbond fence, the best option is to install posts against the fence and have the clothesline fold off the posts. It may be possible to install your clothesline onto a single brick parapet or adjoining boundary wall, but it is advisable to get your neighbour's written permission beforehand.

What height should a clothesline be installed at?
Our installers will generally install a clothesline at the height of 1.8 metres up from the pavers or lawn below. It is recommended you be available to meet the installer on site if you would like the clothesline installed lower or higher than this to confirm the height.

I have a very narrow area that I would like to fit a clothesline, but I'm not sure what would fit.
With such a large variety of sizes and styles available, there is bound to be a clothesline to fit your area. If not, most folding frames can be tailored to suit.

If you are unsure of whether you can fit a clothesline in a narrow area, call our office on (08) 9300 3014 to discuss a customised solution.


I have a cement path down the side of my home and not enough wall space to wall mount a fold down clothesline. Is there an alternative?
Depending upon the space available, there are several options of either retracting or folding frame clotheslines that can be fitted down narrow areas.

If wall mounting is not possible and there is no soil, grass or lift-able paver for ground mounting in the chosen area, it may be possible for posts to be attached to an existing concrete surface with either the addition of plated steel feet bolted to the ground or core drilling into the concrete.

 

Letterboxes

What does the installation of a stone letterbox involve?
The installation of a stone letterbox includes the installation and levelling of a concrete slab, the use of a hydraulic crane to lift the letterbox onto the slab and glued down, and the sealing of the letterbox for protection against the weather.

How hard is it to install a stone letterbox myself?
The normal sandstone letterboxes can weigh anything up to 150kg, so they are often very difficult to transport home, let alone install.

How long from ordering does it take to have a sandstone letterbox ready?
It generally takes at least 7 days to make up a sandstone letterbox. If we have the specific sandstone letterbox in stock at the time of order, installation might be possible earlier.

How long from ordering does it take to have a multibank letterbox ready?
It takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks to make a multibank letterbox depending upon the complexity of the design.

 

Faceplates

What are your standard sized faceplates?
We have a range of standard sizes which you can see here.

What quality stainless steel are your faceplates made out of?
Our Plates are made out of 2mm plate of marine grade 316 stainless steel.

How do you do the lettering on the faceplates?
The most popular method is laser etching, but we also use laser cutting or vinyl.

Can you make custom faceplates?
Yes. Send through a drawing to our email enquiries@aussieclotheslines.com.au or tell us the size specifications of what you are after, and we can give you a direct quote.

How long does it take to make a faceplate?
If you choose a standard size, it will likely be done within 1 to 2 weeks. A customised size or design will likely take 3 weeks.
