This combination is designed not only to produce a stylish iron but one that is also highly efficient. For example, while the wooden handle gives the iron a distinctive look and is also more ergonomic and safer to use as wood has only a moderate heat transfer.
Stirotecnica has been producing industrial irons since 1969. The basic models are the cork-handled Lemm and Maxilemm (which has a larger base), and the H or HE series with thermo-plastic handles. They are available as both steam irons with electronic control, and also as dry irons.

The company also produces iron accessories which include an iron hanger system, steam generators and ironing tables with steam and vacuum.
