The Sheila Maid really is’ The Eco Way To Dry Each Day’™
The iconic energy saving Sheila Maid® clothes airer uses the Original Curved Shape cast iron rack ends that have been a part of the British household for over 100 years. It comes complete with everything you need to install it: wooden rails, 2 cast iron rack ends, a single pulley, double pulley, cleat hook and a 10m UK manufactured cotton durable rope. To Help You Choose: 4 or 6 Rail Sheila Maid – The 4 rail Sheila Maid is 15.5″ wide (39.5cm)wide. The 6 rail Sheila Maid is 22″ wide (56cm). The 2 extra rails will give you 50% more drying space! Length – There are 3 set lengths to choose from – 57″(1.45m), 72″ (1.83m) or 84″ (2.13m) The wood we use for our wooden rails is carefully selected by us from sustainable resources. The wood is kiln-dried and given no further treatment. This provides you with a durable rail that will stand up to many years of drying. Colour – Choosing a colour means selecting what colour cast iron parts (rack ends, pulleys and cleat) you would like to have. The ‘Original’ was the first Sheila Maid we produced and remains the most popular. Optional Double Pulley You can purchase this in HERE. Some customers opt for an extra double pulley and there is good reason for this: If your Sheila Maid is installed some distance from a wall, the rope will need to travel from the Sheila Maid to the cleat (where you fix the rope in a ‘figure of eight’) to secure your Sheila Maid. An additional double pulley can be fitted further along the ceiling. This will lift your rope out of the way, allowing it to travel along the ceiling rather than across the room, until it reaches the cleat on your wall. This is especially useful if your cleat cannot be fixed close to your Sheila Maid or, if you are installing a Sheila Maid on to a sloping ceiling.
