Hiretech HTW-5 Steam Wallpaper Stripper


The HTW-5 Steam Team Wallpaper Stripper for the hire and rental, contractor and professional decorating markets is the safest and easiest to use steam wallpaper stripper available today. Robust and simple to service, the HTW features a unique anti-scald system and steam tank life-time guarantee.

The HTW is designed to efficiently plug and- strip – simply fill with hot or cold tap water and connect to the power supply. The HTW will steam-up in 10 to 25 minutes and continue to run for up to an hour and a half before switching off automatically when a low water level is reached.

The user then simply disconnects the HTW from the power supply, waits 2 minutes to allow the steamer to cool, and then refills. This eliminates the need for the user to remember to constantly check the water level.



  • Stainless steel, light weight steam plate 207mm (8¼”) x 427mm (16¾”). The HTW’s steam plate design directs steam towards the wall surface and creates even distribution of steam over the whole of the steam plate area.

  • Ergonomic handle design allows easy handling of the steam plate as it is moved across the wall surface.

  • 360° swivels at steam plate and steam tank steam hose ends, minimises strain on steam plate and hose and reduces user fatigue.

  • 4m (13′) steam hose, light weight and durable.

  • Steam plate rails and machine body provide storage of power cable and steam hose in one integrated design eliminating the risk of parts being lost.

  • Steam stripper body covers steam tank preventing accidental contact with hot tank surface.

  • Thermal cut-out operates at low water level, eliminating the need for the user to manage the water level.

  • Nickel-plated heating element specially designed for the demands of steam wallpaper stripping. Design allows two thirds of the element to remain covered in water when low water is reached and the thermal cut-out operates.

  • Marine alloy steam tank guaranteed for life.

  • Castors allow steam stripper to be moved easily and safely around the work site.

  • Graphical user instructions provide clear and easily understood instructions for any language.

  • Easy glide steam plate rails for steam plate storage.

  • Anti-scald system prevents the sudden escape of steam and hot water due to operator misuse.
