Best automated laundry racks

Look at any HDB flat on a sunny day and you’ll likely see row after row of bamboo poles lined with laundry to dry. Sunning your clothes outdoors has its benefits, but the constant threat of erratic rain means you’ll have to keep a watchful eye at all times. 

To solve this, automated laundry racks let you dry your clothes inside your home, mimicking sunny weather with a combination of heaters, UV rays and ionisers to disinfect and remove odours too. To save you from the worry of wet clothes, here are 7 best automated laundry racks in Singapore:

How to choose the best automated laundry rack

To choose the best automated laundry rack for your home, first measure the space you have in your laundry area and find one with a suitable length. Note that automated laundry racks can be installed both parallel and perpendicular to your windows. 

For dropping distance, all racks in this article are designed to accommodate the average Singaporean height and space in a HDB. But just to be sure, you can check your floor to ceiling height (about 2.6M for most HDBs) to ensure that it fits your home. 

Also consider the load capacity that your family will need. As a general guideline, a capacity of 35KG and above is more than enough for a family of 4. Lastly, check for warranty and after care services that’ll keep your rack covered over the years. 

Pro-tip: most companies offer non-obligatory site-measurements and consultation for free, so you can hit them up too!
