The Leifheit Ironing Board Air Board XL Ergo Plus offers deluxe comfort, right down to the smallest detail: an extra-large ironing surface, lightweight to carry, a thermo reflective cover to makes ironing quicker, and a stable frame that is shaped to even offer full legroom when sitting. The board's special cover has Thermo Reflect Technology which reflects steam and heat from the iron, instead of letting it evaporate through the ironing surface. This reduces ironing time by up to a third as laundry is ironed from both sides at the same time, making it visibly smoother. Its ironing surface is made of ultra-light special plastic which makes the ironing board lighter compared to all other conventional expanded metal ironing boards, even with its XL ironing surface. It retains its stability, with a frame that can compensate on uneven floors. The ironing surface measures 140 x 38 cm and rests on a 35 mm thick and strong tubular frame, which is curved ergonomically and provides ample legroom when seated. At one end, the board is shaped for shoulder-fit shirt and blouse ironing. Height adjustable, the board can be raised to a maximum working height of 98 cm, allowing back-friendly ironing. The ironing board is supplied with a movable iron rest for optimal placement, suiting both right and left-handed users. It has an electrical socket and a cable holder. Thermo-Reflect Technology makes this ironing board ideal for using with standard irons and steam irons. Leifheit recommends its Air Steam Board Express range of ironing boards for use with steam iron generators.
