By adjusting their lives, people tend to use a variety of compact and modern devices, whether their apartment is in a metropolis, a private country or village house. One such device is the Liana dryer. Because the question of how to dry the laundry after washing is relevant at all times.
Linen dryers - modern fixture
Dryers usually occupy a small space, but at the same time allow a lot of washed laundry to be weighed. This is especially true if you have to dry two or three sets of bed linen. Having a private house, clothes can be dried in the fresh air, stretching the ropes between the trees. But this in the summer, and when damp, slush and rain?
In a megalopolis, the situation is even more complicated. A balcony or a loggia can not always place bulky duvet covers and sheets, blankets and pillowcases. And if the apartment does not have a balcony, then it is necessary to dry the linen in the bathroom and in the kitchen. Manufacturers produce many different drying options for laundry. It is important to find out which of the models best suits you.
Classification of dryers
The choice of dryers is multifaceted. A large number of various models are offered, differing in configuration, functionality, price and, of course, the manufacturer. Depending on the installation site, they are divided into ceiling, floor and wall. The main advantage is the ability to place the maximum amount of laundry, while occupying the minimum area.
Dryers are removable and permanently fixed. According to the type of structures they are divided into folding, sliding, hanging meshes and dryer-lianas.
- Suspended nets are suitable for cottages.
- Folding is usually installed on the floor. They occupy a decent area and are uncomfortable in small rooms.
- Sliding constructions are mostly metal. Most often they are attached to the wall. They are not very practical and often cumbersome.
- Dryer "Liana" is a ceiling construction. It easily folds, can withstand heavy weight and does not interfere with movement.
According to the type of mechanisms, the structures for drying are divided into rope, telescopic and sliding.
Designs for balconies and loggias
The best place to place a dryer is a balcony or a loggia. Although the loggias in modern houses are quite roomy, the place for drying clothes, which is still equipped with ordinary ropes, hinders, for example, opening the doors of the balcony frame freely. In this case, the dryer on the balcony of the ceiling - "Liana" - is ideal. It is compact, it will not interfere with the passage, without effort it will withstand a lot of weight. Since the system is attached to the ceiling, it is almost invisible.
The design consists of interconnected pipes and a system of ropes to control the dryer. Tubes can be made of both plastic and metal, covered with enamel. This will prevent the dryer, and at the same time, the laundry from rust. The length of the structure is selected depending on the size of the balcony or balcony. Thanks to the rope system, the design is lowered to the desired height for the convenience of hanging clothes. Then the dryer can be raised again. The longer the dryer on the balcony "Liana", the stronger should be the tube. Plastic systems are cheaper than metal ones, but they are of low quality and unreliable.
Most often, dryers are equipped on balconies and loggias. It is more difficult if the apartment does not have a balcony. Then the drying can be installed in the bathroom, in the kitchen and even in the room. The problem of drying is especially acute in the off-season. At this time the apartment is cold and damp. You can buy an electric dryer or a machine with a drying function. But such units are expensive and energy-consuming. The best option is the dryer Liana. Suspension system - a convenient device.
The design does not take up much space. Allows you to place a considerable amount of clothes and laundry to dry. It can be installed in the bathroom. This requires a good ventilation system, since the bathroom - the room is small and wet. Liana can be hung in the kitchen closer to the window, because the air temperature in the kitchen is usually higher than in other rooms. To speed up the drying process (and to avoid the appearance of an unpleasant musty odor from the laundry), you can open the window.
If for any reason a ceiling dryer for linen can not be installed on the balcony "Liana", it is fixed in another way. There are ceiling-mounted systems. The design is suitable for a balcony, balcony or bathroom. The dryer is equipped with universal fasteners. Therefore, you can install it both on the ceiling and on the wall.
With the help of a stretched rope, each of the metal bars is lowered. After hanging clothes, the bars are raised upward. Based on the amount of laundry washed, use one or more tubes. For better drying and ventilation of clothes, you can keep objects at different heights, cascade.
Depending on the manufacturer, the dryers may differ in appearance. Another dryer "Liana" wall is a roller mechanism with twisted ropes and a bar for fastening. Ropes are stretched in a horizontal plane and fixed on the opposite wall.
The basic subtleties when choosing a dryer
Ceiling dryer perfectly fit into the interior. The buyer will choose the most suitable option from the set of proposed models. All of them differ in size, quantity of rods, material from which they are made, at the price of the manufacturer. With proper use, these products serve almost unlimited time.
Metal dryers are more durable. If the choice is stopped on a product made of plastic, it is worth giving preference to Russian manufacturers. Their products are better in comparison with low-quality Chinese plastic. At purchase it is necessary to check up integrity of a box where the dryer "Liana" is packed. The operating instructions must be present.
The most vulnerable place that influences the service life is the cords that lift and lower the entire system. They are made of strong yarn. But over time, they can be rubbed off contact with the sharp parts of the tubes. This defect can be eliminated by replacing the cords with new ones.
Installation and installation of the dryer
Installation of a ceiling dryer "Liana" is not difficult. Once the drying space has been selected, holes for the fastenings are drilled with a perforator or drill. They should be located at a strictly defined distance in accordance with the length of the rods of the dryer. The complete set of the dryer includes brackets with rollers, which are fixed with screws to the ceiling or wall (depending on the type of system). The clamp, fixing the ropes to change the position of the height of the rods, is fixed separately to the wall with screws, at a convenient height for the hostess. Each rod of the dryer has two cords (short and long) and two caps (for bottom and top fixation). Cords are passed through rollers on brackets and fixing caps, checking the top and bottom positions of each of the rods. After installing the dryer, you need to check its reliability by loading on the rods the permissible possible amount of laundry. If the structure is firmly held and does not creak, the installation is carried out correctly.
Choosing a manufacturer, it is worth looking at the product description of the dryer "Liana". Customer feedback on this system is mostly positive.

Operation and maintenance of the dryer
The correct installation of a new dryer is a guarantee of its long and reliable operation. Care of the system is quite simple. Wipe the dryer after use.
Some frames have a powder coating. Under the influence of moisture and temperature changes, it cracks and crumbles. So there is, in addition to the unsightly appearance, another problem: linen can cling to chips.
Stainless steel frames are high-strength and do not require additional care. The most successful acquisition is a system made of plastic in combination with other, more sturdy material.
Do not overload the dryer. The instructions indicate the maximum allowable weight of laundry for one drying, as well as the load on one of the rods.
Despite ambiguous opinions, a dryer for clothes is a useful thing, and sometimes just necessary. Dryer "Liana"– an element that, undeniably, will simplify the life and harmoniously fit into the most refined interior.
