42" Ventilated Board with 4" Vertical Adjustment
- The metal ventilated board differentiates itself from the earlier wooden ironing boards.
- The traditional built-in wooden board only needed to be hard for the dry irons of the day.
- Today's advanced steam irons are designed to project bursts of steam to penetrate deep into the fabric.
- Using them on a wooden ironing board causes condensation on the board and hot spots when ironing.
- The metal ventilated board allows this steam to pass through the fabric keeping the surface dryer and providing a more even-heated ironing surface.
Spring Activated 90 Degree Left/Right Swivel
- The adjustable swivel creates the overall maximum flexibility that you would want in an ironing board.
- A swivel board allows for a 90 degree left/right turn of the board creating the flexibility that may be necessary in confined areas.
Premium Hot Iron Storage
- Not only is it convenient to store your iron inside the unit, but the location keeps the iron out of children's reach.
- There's no reason to let your iron cool down, the insulated heat shield allows for immediate shelving.
- The hot iron storage area has been designed to accept the majority of steam/dry irons available at retail, including many premium models.
- The spotlight will enhance your ability to iron out those sometimes hard to spot creases and crevices not found when ironing garments in insufficiently lit areas.
Electrical Cord Wrap and Restraints
- These features allow for only the amount of cord required to iron by using the electrical cord cover or wrap.
- You can easily guide the iron and eliminate the excess cord from getting in your way.
