I want to put a small rotary drier on an upstairs balcony. Balcony isn't very wide so diameter would ideally be less than 2 metres.

I have a large rotary drier in the garden for large items,

I've searched online but haven't found anything suitable so I'm turning (punintended) to the experts.

Any ideas?

Thanks

    Have you thought about maybe a clothes drying horse? My friend has one on her balcony and it’s a perfect fit although she has now found out that they are not allowed even though she owns her own flat but it’s not in keeping with the rest of the retirement flats 🤷‍♂️

    Yes, I used one in the past but it didn't last long. I probably overloaded it but a more substantial one mihjt work.

    I have had my current one for 2 years that I put outside when I can’t be bothered getting the rotary line out, I’ve put towels on it and it’s not buckled yet x

    You've got me thinking now....!

    Would you mind telling me what make/model yours was?

    You may have tried this already but if not, type:
    camping rotary washing line airer
    into your favourite search engine.  It brings up lots of airers but you will need to check sizes.
    If you go to a large caravan/camping store you might find one there that you can have a look at in the flesh, so to speak.

    We saw a small rotary airer in Lakeland at the weekend.  It was for indoor or outdoor use, and I was tempted to buy.  I can't get their website to work right now so can't link.

    I was passing a branch of Lakeland today and popped in to look for a saucepan and I noticed the pop-airer on display so took down the details:

    Hi, there are some at Wayfair, different styles and sizes -

    https://www.wayfair.co.uk/Symple-Stuff--Hanging-Folding-Drying-Rack-V114122540-L3759-K~U003011439.html

    And you can also buy retractable washing lines that are ideal for small balconies, from amazon. I'd put a link but it keeps adding all my personal details!  You can also put them in bathrooms and they retract so they're out of the way.
