About 35kg. But we do not recommend stretching it to 35kg. Assuming you are using a 10kg load washing machine, the maximum is about 3 loads but note this also depends if you are washing heavy items like quilt cover/blanket/mattress cover, etc.
Yes, the Telescopic drop-down poles on each side, that run parallel to the unit’s body can be tucked up when not in use. There are nooks on each end to hold them in place. When needed, you can drop them down eg when you have bulky laundry items like mattress covers/blankets/quilts to hang. When dropped down, these drop-down poles can be extended sideways to 2.2m; when not extended, they are 1.3m in length which is the same length as the unit’s body.
The fan and UV light functions have a safety mechanism in place and automatically cuts off after 120 minutes and 30 minutes respectively, so it saves electricity and you can be rest assured even if you forget to turn it off when you head out of home.
We recommend that the rack be retracted back fully especially when there is laundry on it. When the rack is not fully retracted back up, especially with laundry on it, the rack and laundry’s weight creates unnecessary tension on the steel strings while in that halfway down/not fully retracted position. It is not favourable as prolonged tension may damage the steel strings and may even cause them to snap. We recommend retracting the rack back up fully for regular usage, especially with laundry on it. As such, we recommend you send us photos of your desired area of installation for assessment by our Installation Team before purchase.

If your place is still under renovation, we strongly advise that the rack be installed after the major renovations, painting of ceiling/walls and carpentry are completed- the rack should be one of the last items to be installed. Some ID/contractors we have worked with do provide a final touch-up for completed paintwork, the rack can be installed before this step but not advisable to install it before the major painting works. Do speak with our team on this so we can provide you with more details.

As the rack is powered up with electricity and comprises electrical and motor components, these should not come into direct contact with water elements to ensure safety. The rack should be installed in indoor areas or balconies/semi-outdoor areas that are completely sheltered/have structural provisions in place to shelter the rack from direct rain and/or water elements. In addition, the unit should not be installed at the edge of the balcony. A minimum of 0.55m-0.8m setback from the edges of the balcony is required depending on the balcony and its varying conditions. Video the installation location for our team to assess if you are in doubt.
A site visit is not necessary as our assessment is done virtually. For your virtual assessment, you would only need to take videos/pictures of the location you wish to install. The dimension of our rack unit is 1.3m by 0.35m so as long there is sufficient ceiling space, there should be no issue. Additionally, to ensure the unit can fit in your desired area of installation as a whole, the length of the area should be greater than 1.3m and the width greater than 0.52m. We can also assess if there would be any complications from the videos/pictures provided.
