CPUT Innovation: Dryway™

Frustrated with flimsy clothes drying racks that offer a limited amount of hanging space, a Mechanical Engineering student thought out of the box and came up with a solution to his family’s laundry day woes.

Wayne van Diemen is the inventor of the product Dryway™, a portable, sturdy and lightweight clothes drying rack specifically designed for use in small areas.

“My wife and I have two children and we live in an apartment. We always had problems with clothes drying racks,” says Wayne.

“They were unstable and had a lack of capacity, while others were bulky. We then decided to think of a solution.”

After several months of working on his concept, Wayne developed the device, which is manufactured from aluminum, wood and premium engineering materials.

The simplistic construction of the device allows for plenty of air flow around each garment causing them to dry in no time.

Dryway™ also features several accessories, including an attachment allowing for additional hanging space.

Wayne has completed a prototype and the device is now ready for manufacturing.

Investors as well as individuals interested in the product can contact Wayne at +27 21 951 3312 /+27 72 445 1407 or vandiemenwayne@gmail.com

The product will be on show at the CPUT Innovation Showcase, which takes place on Thursday, 6 August 2015 in the Major Sports Hall at the Bellville Campus from 11am – 8pm. Entry is free.
