Everyone Hates Wrinkles, Even the Blind!


As simple a task as it is, ironing poses a great risk to those with visual impairments. Because they must guide the clothes iron with their hands, accidental burns often occur. Designed with this in mind, the Protector Iron does just what its name promises and protects hands and fingers from the hot soleplate. A simple yet effective guard wraps around the device and is set away from the soleplate just enough that users can feel where they’re ironing without the risk of burning.

The Protector Iron is a Winner of the K-Design Award for the year 2017.
