For USA & Canada Only! Perfect for Home or Cleaner Business

  • Iron and Boiler not included (see below to purchase complete system)

    Professional features for professional results
    The c81 is equipped with both vacuum and up-air functions. While vacuum is great for ensuring a clean-crisp finish to your garments, the up-air feature eliminates impressions, common on delicate fabrics like velvet, corduroy and other napped fabrics.

    All metal construction
    Like all Reliable Steamer products, the c81 is built to last. It is made entirely of metal in order to ensure stability and sturdiness even for heavy-duty professional work.

    Larger 49” x 16” pressing surface
    You are busy, and you want to get the ironing done as fast as you can. The large working surface of the c81 reduces the amount of time you spend ironing by putting more of the fabric in front of you.

    Built in heating element
    Just like our professional series of vacuum tables, the c81 is equipped with a built in heating element to keep the inside of the table nice and dry, and rust free.

    Convenience and performance
    The c81 conveniently folds up so you can place it out of the way when it is not being used. When you are ready iron, just turn the switch on and you are ready to go.

    Quick-dry pad + cover set
    Our "Quick-Dry" textured polyester pad & cover set allows maximum air to flow through so your garments will dry quickly. The smooth surface allows your garments to move around with ease.

    Vacuum & Up Air Functions

    Pressing on a regular ironing board eventually leads to a damp ironing surface, making it impossible to get a clean, crisp finish for your garments. The 500VB with vacuum and up-air provides the user with the same tools that professionals count on.

    The Right Tool For The Job

    The secret to great finishing is to keep the ironing table dry by removing the steam from the fabric. Use vacuum for pressing a shirt or putting in a crease, while up-air (blowing) is great for delicates, removing the risk of leaving an impression or crushing the nap.

icon TUBE FRAME CONSTRUCTION An ironing board's quality is decided by the way the frame is made. The 500VB is made using tube frame construction, which offers maximum rigidity and stability.


To ensure the inside of the 500VB stays dry and rust free, a heating element comes on as soon as the power switch has been turned on.


A convenient laundry rack is supplied with the 500VB. The rack doubles as a catch tray when ironing longer garments like dresses or robes.


To save space, the 500VB folds up with the pulling of one lever. It will fold down to a very compact 16” x 7” x 55”.


Shown with Optional Iron. The 500VB has an ultra-sturdy heavy-duty professional ironing station support rack. Solid steel construction and space saving convenience.


Maximize the flexibility of the 500VB with the optional sleeve pressing board or the gravity feed water bottle holder.
