4 reasons why your business should buy a commercial iron

Say goodbye to ironing fatigue! At SLS we firmly believe in the power of a commercial iron to tackle those creases quickly, and here’s why.

  1. Saves time

Relying on a domestic iron to take on the copious amounts of laundry generated from care homes and hotels is always going to be a struggle. Due to the smaller heat plates there is far less coverage when ironing.  By swapping to a commercial model fewer strokes are needed to achieve the crisp appearance required in a professional environment.

  1. Reliable

This point also just happens to be the name of our popular product; the Reliable 5000IS commercial steam ironing system. We favour this model as it does exactly what it says on the iron, it’s reliable. This robust commercial solution is built to withstand a busy laundry environment.  It’s also the No.1 commercial product throughout the U.S. and Canada!

  1. Saves money

Many of our customers buy domestic grade irons that fail within 6 – 12 months. This isn’t the case with the Reliable 5000IS.  A commercial iron may be more expensive in the short-term, but the cost of regularly replacing domestic irons can soon add up. Even if the Reliable 5000IS fails within 10 years you will receive a replacement for free!

  1. Purpose-built

Commercial irons like the Reliable 5000IS also allow up to four hours of continuous dry, pressurized steam. Pressurized steam is the fastest and most efficient way of ironing. It allows the fibres of the fabric to be softened quicker, with the weight and heat of the iron laying the fibres down flat.

To test the Reliable 5000IS, why not visit us at the Care Show at the NEC in October and take on our ‘Iron Challenge’ for the chance to walk away with a free Reliable 5000IS.
