The CLASSIC version requires either a removable top cap on the airer or a Rotadaptor to attach to the top of the cap in order to hold the central extension post provided.

This is the tent design for four arm airers with solid (non-removable) tops on the centre-post - and works for many designs of square airer including Hills Hoist and similar types. Popular sizes are also available in a heavier weight 'Deluxe' Luxury 300 grade woven material.


  • A square waterproof cover with a central vent and 100mm side wall attached to a 900mm mesh skirt which catches even wind blown rain,
  • A weighted hem all round the skirt to prevent it blowing in the wind, and corner weights for added stability,
  • An adjustable central extension post up to 700mm long to attached to the centre post to raise the middle of the Dryline and drain rainwater clear of the laundry.

If the side lengths of your airer vary in size (as they normally do), take the average length and use it to work out the cover you need, by using the product selector on the home page.

I just want to say that I think that the Rotaire Dryline is the most fantastic invention, really the best thing since sliced bread!. I have had one for many, many years and only needed to replace it last year due to old age. I use my cover all the time as my washing is out all the year round in any weather and really could not be without my fantastic cover.

Thank you for the advice. I have to say the whole concept of an umbrella style cover over a rotary washing line really works and saves pounds not having to use tumble dryer in the winter. I put my washing out to dry all year round now and just having the fresh (London) air blowing through the fibres makes the whole drying process much quicker. Even if washing is damp after a day out on the line in the winter, it only takes a couple of hours before it is bone dry. I wonder what the theory is but the Rotaire Dryline cover has made all the difference to this process. I will be in touch when the replacement cover is heading for the graveyard!

I purchased the rotaire 2015 and am very pleased with the functionality and quality of the product. I leave my washing out all weathers and take it in dry. I no longer have to fret about leaving it out when it looks like rain, I can relax and let it blow. My husband also thinks its the best thing since sliced bread as I don't need to nag him to get the washing in if it rains. The best part though is not having to join the neighbours getting soaked when retrieving the laundry . The Rotaire washing line cover is a fantastic piece of ingenuity and I could not live with out it now..
