Wide and airy

Easy to put up and collapse. Plenty of space but I find the clothes hang down on each other. Therefore the air doesn't dry certain parts. Unfortunately I am having to take my airer back to Argos as one of the blue plastic mouldings at the top is missing. I should have checked it at the store before leaving especially as the cellophane wrapping was torn.

Good wide clothes airer

Good sturdy clothes airer. Bought the wide one as i put them outside when fine to dry clothes and didn't want it blowing over. You can put most clothes on easily without them been folded. But it is is wide and a bit awkward to move when up. So see the measurements first before you buy.

7 questions | 9 answersAsk a question
Is the drying space (20m) correct?

The reason I ask is that the website and catalogue pictures for this item are different. The item photo in the CATALOGUE shows 3 bars per side (not including the frame) on the top 2 tiers and 4 bars per side on the bottom tier. However, the WEBSITE shows ONLY 2 bars per side (not including the frame) on the top 2 tiers and 3 per side on the bottom tier. This would mean that the item on the website has ONLY 15.5 m of drying space, whereas the item in the catalogue has 20.5m of drying space (number of bars including frame X item width = approx drying space). Please could you tell me which photo correctly represents the item on sale in stores and whether your item description states the correct amount of drying space for it. (The item is no longer listed on the manufacturer website for me to verify the/your product description).

You are correct.
The wide airer has less bars than the standard airer (I have both, bought from Argos). If you want more bars the Minky website has a slightly different wide model with more bars and different colours but it is priced at over twice the price of the Argos item, as of 27 May 2013 but this can change.
Measuring the bars (55cm usable space - normal, 75cm wide) gives a usable space of 14.3m in normal width and 15m wide width including the outer frame.
The benefit of the wide airer is it allows you to dry larger items, i.e. XL T-shirts and jumpers with less creasing.
Hope this is helpfull.

Having read through the reviews again, there is one on the 16th January 2013 that states this inly has 3 bars at the top instead of 4 like a usual sized airer.

My guess is that this includes the top bar which is part of the frame, therefore it is IMPOSSIBLE that this airer has 20m of drying space as it only has 20 bars in total Including the bars created by the shape of the frame.

A simple equation proves that 20m is incorrect: Number of bars (20) X item width (81cm) = 1620cm or 16.2m!

This means that with exception to the extra width being useful for larger items such as bed linen, this Item has no more actual drying space a cheaper standard 3 tier airer.

Hi, thank you for your question.

I have looked into this and I can confirm that the airer you will receive will have 3 bars at the top.

Why have you not corrected the drying space quoted?

I note from the Q&A that someone asked as long as 11 months ago why the drying space and the picture on your website of the item did not tally. Still the same picture, and still the same drying space. 20 rails at approx. 75cm wide does not 20 metres make. Surely you are obliged to provide correct and factual information, and to amend it if it is discovered to be incorrect?
