  • Leifheit AirActive L Ironing Board - Silver 126 x 45cm

    The laundry experts at Leifheit have excelled themselves in the development of their AirActive Fan-Assisted Ironing Board. At first glance it looks like a fairly conventional, generously-sized ironing board, but it’s far from ordinary. Designed for anyone who’s proud of their household linens, clothes and curtains and wants everything to show just how much they care, this is an ironing board that will help you speed through the task no matter what varieties of fabrics are stacked in your laundry basket. And, best of all, the Air Active system eliminates the tiresome water staining and condensation that can slowly ruin your ironing board.

    Created to work in partnership with steam generator irons – amplifying the power of the steam, rather than fighting it – Leifheit’s Air Active system lets you choose to iron delicate fabrics on a cushion of air, use the fan’s power to hold slippery fabrics to the board, or draw steam through a garment or through layers of fabric to finish with pristine laundry that’s instantly cupboard-dry.

    Simple dial controls that are equally easy to use for left and right-handed ironers let you select from the three active ironing options:

    Easy Glide – Air Inflate

    Designed to help you iron delicate fabrics and garments with the minimum of pressure – this feature reverses the flow of air through the ironing board to raise the item on a cushion of air, ‘inflating’ the garment so creases are blown away as your iron smooths the fabric. For truly delicate items, the Air Inflate ‘easy glide’ feature smooths the garments so beautifully that you can steam them from a height without needing to actually touch the fabric at all; the steam softens the creases, the airflow through the ironing board cover stretches the fabric, the crease disappears – and the garment has not been touched! This is especially useful with garments that have delicate appliqué designs, lacework or sequins.

    Air Suction and Extraction

    Ideal when you’re ironing a large or slippery item such as a sheet, curtain or dress, the powerful fan sucks the fabric onto the table, helping you to smooth it out without it sliding away before you can press it. Then it draws the steam through the board, expelling it under the iron rest safely away from your legs and helping clothes dry faster. This mode is ideal for steam ironing smart creases into folded shirts, trousers and tablecloths – allowing you to use the maximum power of steam ironing – and finish with pristine laundry that’s ‘wardrobe-dry’, ready to put away at once.

    Other Features

    • Perforated padded cover – allows the fan to do its work, letting steam or air pass through freely depending on the programme you’ve selected.
    • Ultra-light perforated ironing board – the board’s surface is made of Leifheit’s specially lightweight perforated plastic, which lets steam through and eliminates the frustration of mesh indentations of laundry.
    • Large iron rest tray – ergonomically lowered a little way below the board so that a steam generator iron is held firmly at the best level beside you. Shelf surface 28 x 31cm; holds a steam unit up to 7.5kg.
    • Mobile cable holder – slides along the back of the iron rest so you can choose which side of the ironing board you want to face and keep the iron’s flex under control (and out of the way of family passing by).
    • Easy to put up and down – Leifheit have used their expertise to build this board with the lightest possible materials, including their ultra-lightweight EPP ironing surface, so despite being packed with features, it’s the lightest of its type on the market at just 7.8kg.
    • Height adjustable – if you prefer to iron sitting down, the Air Active ironing board is happy to help, and it’s equally great for tall people who hate to have to stoop. Adjusts in six steps from 75 to 100cm H.
    • Four adjustable non-slip plastic feet make it very stable.
    • Safety lock – when you’ve finished ironing, the transit lock keeps the legs tightly closed for easy and convenient storage until it’s called into action again.
