It is very welcome support for reliable iron, and well, if you will mount sockets, which will connect the iron. So you chose ironing board must meet all requirements, and to have a similar price. Design features of ironing boards The most simple design – a wooden board with rounded edges on folding legs, upholstered in fabric. Most often used for plywood board itself, and under the fabric can make up foam. These boards have the lowest cost, and some disadvantages.
The main drawback – the material board. Plywood under the influence of steam and moisture will eventually bend, turning a flat surface ironing board in the propeller. To neutralize this shortage, many manufacturers produce a surface of the metal. To facilitate the metal make the holes or slits. Stiffeners on the back side of the board makes the design more robust and do not allow the board sag. Locking mechanism is smooth and stepped. Smooth locking system can be mounted at any height, but eventually bumped not firmly holds the board.
For this reason it is better to prefer reliable fixation step. The legs should extend beyond the board width. That makes the board less compact in storage, but greatly increases stability. Feet below should be plastic or rubber caps, so as not to scratch the flooring. Painted enamel legs scratched and quickly lose their appearance, so it's stainless or chrome plating, although it is more expensive. Ironing board cover in inexpensive models are made of cotton. In the more expensive models, it is water proof non-stick made of synthetic material, which is much better. Many manufacturers make the case removable to allow replacement. Case no must shuffle around the board and securely fastened. As practice shows, the reference size ironing board: length 120-130 cm and 38-40 cm wide stand for iron is needed to prevent accidental drop the iron on the table. Agree pay a little for a comfortable stand is more profitable than to buy a new iron. Stand should be one with the board. Staples instead of the stand are not safe. Came with a small ironing board, ironing board hoses and all attachments are not used often, but increase the cost of the kit. Consider whether they are to you. Boards can also be equipped with additional shelves, brackets for hanging clothes hangers, etc. These make the design too bulky and heavy. Oddly items created for convenience, can make use of the ironing board is not very convenient. It also increases the cost of the board, so good consider whether it is for you. Finally conclusions derive the formula for reliable and convenient ironing board: Light board, which can easily pick up any hostess.
