Advantages of choosing a JLA professional ironing board 

We understand that different settings need different solutions, so we'll always work closely with you to find the best solution for your requirements, as well as your laundry layout. 

All of our commercial ironing tables provide you with a heated, breathable surface, allowing you to iron without putting too much pressure on the fabric – particularly important if you’re providing a finishing service in a hotel, or simply want to guarantee optimum garment care for residents in settings like care homes or boarding schools.

When comparing with larger scale options, it’s important to point out that rotary ironers and rollers systems do not give you the ability to iron a wide range of garments at speed. So while they’re an excellent choice for linens and towels in high-demand laundry rooms, a steam iron and table combination provides the better option for more precise, lower volume finishing.

Professional ironing board systems vs domestic alternatives

You would be forgiven for assuming that professional finishing systems are more closely aligned with domestic irons and ironing boards, but this is not the case. The main advantages of commercial ironing tables include:

  • Higher power output
  • Heated table and steam options 
  • Wide range to iron a complete garment in one go
  • Less impact on the garments
  • Less manpower needed to work the board

Which type of ironing table do I need?

Heavy duty ironing boards provide a heated, breathable surface which allows high-quality ironing finishes without having to put too much pressure on fabrics. This is particularly important if you’re providing a finishing service in the likes of a hotel, or simply want to guarantee optimum garment care for residents in settings like care homes or boarding schools. Built-in vacuums within a professional ironing board can help to sharpen creases, making this is a particularly sought out feature for clothing care.

A steam iron and table combination on the other hand provides a far better option for those needing precision over volume when it comes to finishing. For laundry rooms which need to quickly process flatwork but a large commercial ironer isn’t quite the right fit, a professional iron and ironing board can help give you a premium finish without the need for extensive training. 

Commercial Ironing Boards FAQs

How to choose an ironing board for my business?

You'll notice that there are certainly similarities within domestic ironing board systems and professional equivalents, but they are not one and the same. A commercial ironing table system far exceeds the power and performance of its household counterpart, allowing for a higher output and superior result. 

It's worth nothing, that an ironing board itself is not going to achieve professional results without its paired professional iron. When choosing a board for your business, you should look for models which include: 

  • A heated table for reduced moisture
  • Integrated irons available for convenience 
  • High power output allowing for less strain on employees
  • Steam switch controls
  • In-built vacuum functionality for sharp creases

What is the best professional ironing board?

Finding the best professional ironing board is all about knowing what your requirements are and many of the best ironing boards will cater to these specific needs. The surface of the board will certainly play a role in your output but if you’re looking for a starting point, look for a breathable board to avoid steam returning to the iron which can leave your finishing fabric damp and potentially burned. 

If you're looking for a swift service, a heated ironing board allows items to be stored or delivered immediately thanks to the quicker drying time. 

Whatever your needs, with proper maintenance a professional ironing board system should last 10 years and will be a worthwhile investment for your laundering business.
