The flying laundry bird saves space. This is the most obvious advantage of the Hangbird compared to the traditional clothes horse. There are also other practical advantages :
However, Hangbird not only makes laundry drying easier in handling, it also has advantages for the environment :
On this page you will find the most important advantages of the Hangbird at a flap of a wing.
Who does not know it? – The T-shirt just doesn’t have enough space on a clothesline that has already been hung. This “edge effect” occurs all the more frequently, the shorter and more “fragmented” the lines are. Hangbird has long, uninterrupted lines so that the laundry can be lined up compactly and continuously.
In the highest position, the Hangbird can be pulled up to approx. 10 cm close to the ceiling. This makes it practical even with the minimum standard ceiling height of 2.5 m.
Often you fold large items of laundry such as trousers, towels or bed linen anyway, then they are approx. 50 cm long. With normal, modern ceilings with a height of 2.5 m, the laundry hangs down to a height of approx. 1.90 meters. Enough space for most people to walk down through. If you also choose a place that is not on the “main routes” through the home, e.g. on the edge of the room, behind the door, over the sofa, over the bathtub, etc., nobody has to bend down – even if there is laundry hanging.
But yes! Hangbird loves high ceilings! From a ceiling height of 4 m, Hangbird places extra rope in the package free of charge.
Hangbird does not tip over because it hovers from the ceiling on four ropes. When pulled up, it is safe for children, animals and laundry – depending on the perspective from which you look at it.
The fastening mechanism of the pull rope is chosen so that it is very difficult for a child to loosen it. You can also install an extra safeguard.
In every room there is a temperature difference between the ceiling and the floor. The Hangbird takes advantage of this:
Laundry made of thinner fabrics such as t-shirts often dries overnight.
Incidentally, Hangbird does not cause any additional mold problem. General answers on the subject of drying laundry can also be found in the FAQs (under the themes planning and handling).
We would like to thank S. B. for this special picture!
Hangbird saves around 25-75 euros a year compared to an electric dryer.
In the summer months, Hangbird dries without any additional energy. In winter, drying clothes requires energy in the form of heating.
The operation of an electric dryer costs around 50 – 150 euros per year. Depending on the efficiency, one calculates with 1 to 3 kWh per charge, an electricity price of approx. 32 ct / kWh and 160 charges per year.
Hangbird is cheaper to buy than an electric dryer, often several hundred euros.
The acquisition costs of a Hangbird lie in between 180 and 260 euros; an electric dryer costs between 250 and 800 euros, depending on the design and energy efficiency.
An electric dryer puts a lot of strain on the laundry due to the high heat and the fact that the laundry is spinning through the air. Every lint in the dryer sieve was once part of an item of clothing.
The Hangbird dries the laundry lint-free and gently, without the need to clean the lint filter and empty the water compartment.
A Hangbird weighs 5 – 7 kg, an electric dryer on the other hand around 50 kg. The consumption of so-called “gray energy” during manufacture and transport is therefore significantly lower with a Hangbird.
The wood for the frame of the Hangbird grows in central Germany within a radius of 100 km from the saw- and planing mill. It is PEFC certified, meaning it comes from sustainable forestry.
In the summer months, Hangbird does not need any energy for drying.
In the winter months, primitive heating energy is used efficiently for a process as simple as drying, and high-quality electrical energy is not consumed.
The individual parts of the Hangbird are of high quality and for the most part virtually indestructible. They could still be replaced easily – by reordering via Hangbird or by going to the hardware store.
The Hangbird consists of clearly separable components and is therefore relatively easy to manufacture. Due to the permanent purity of the materials used, it can be recycled very well separately if it is disposed of.
