A wardrobe does not have to be expensive or chunky

You don't have enough room for a big wardrobe? Super magnets can help! We'd like to introduce an easily implemented way of hanging up clothes that is especially suitable for inhabitants of small spaces.
Iron sheets as magnetic baseBuilding a low-cost coatrack is simple:
Screw a coated iron sheet on the ceiling. The coating is strongly recommended. On uncoated iron sheets, the magnet is producing black iron dust when moved around and that stains the clothes.
Note from the supermagnete team: Instead of an iron sheet, you can also screw a metal bar from our shop (available in different colours) on the ceiling. You could also use inexpensive glue-on metal rods but you should try them out first with light clothing.
Magnets instead of clothes railDepending on the length of the sheet, put about 20 S-10-10-N-Magnets on the iron sheet.
Thereafter, you can attach coat hangers including clothes on one magnet each.
Such a magnet even hold trousers, coats or 2 hangers with button-down shirts at the same time. Since bent hangers only have on point of contact with the magnet, you can't increase the holding power with bigger magnets such as blocks but with longer rods such as rod magnets 10x40 mm.
