Any organization that has to launder and iron textiles such as polyester tablecloths knows the pains a traditional iron can be. When a party rental company receives their tablecloths back from a rental, they can have hundreds to turnaround before another rental. This means traditional irons don’t normally cut it where the time to finish one tablecloth is just too long to efficiently finish the linen. This is where commercial ironing equipment such as a rotary iron comes in. Rotary irons conveniently and easily process larger volumes of laundry regardless of how large a tablecloth may be. Because of this they are a perfect edition to a larger party rental operation that needs to turn around tablecloths at a reasonable speed. But who makes the best rotary irons?
Here are the best rotary irons in Canada for Party Rental Companies.
