All stairlifts have safety sensors on the power pack and footplate. These are designed to stop the lift if it meets any obstruction. Once stopped it can only be moved in the opposite direction to the obstruction. All stairlifts have a diagnostic display so that you can monitor the status of your stairlift.
Your stairlift will also come with a seat belt as standard for additional peace of mind. Our easy release retractable seat belt gives the added flexibility of allowing you to fasten it to one side or centrally, whichever is easier for you or other users. Choosing a stairlift is about understanding your needs and wants and selecting the most appropriate solution.
We strongly believe that not all stairlifts should be the same. Just as every home and every person is different we offer a range of features across our products ñ such as powered swivels and automatic footrest folds ñ along with a wide selection of upholstery choices so our customers can get the perfect stairlift for them and their home. The type of staircase in your home will have an impact on the type of rail you will need, costs and how long it will take us to make your stairlift. When you invite us to quote our sales consultant will assess your staircase and explain the options we can offer.
Our stairlifts are built to last, with low maintenance and high reliability. They run on DC power packs, which are automatically recharged at the end of every trip. This type of power ensures that the stairlifts are safe to use, are whisper quiet when in use and are incredibly smooth.
When you have a curve in your stairway, a mid-way landing or a spiral staircase your only option is a curved stairlift. They cost more than a straight stairlift because the rails have to be custom manufactured to suit your home. There are hundreds of permutations for a curved stairlift rail and a detailed survey must be done to get the designed rail to fit correctly. Just as with straight stairlifts they are battery powered so they can even be used in the event of a power cut. The batteries are always charged ready for use as when the stairlift is parked they are constantly charging.
Stairlift seats and systems do vary between manufacturers. Whilst it is rare that a stairlift is not suitable, carrying out a User Assessment is advisable. This allows your supplier to not only double check that the dimensions of the lift are suitable for the user and the location, but it also allows them to specify which side controls should go and to discuss the possibility of adding powered features to make using the stairlift even easier. These may not be needed now but could be of huge benefit in the long term.
Most staircase surveys are quick and easy to perform. If your staircase is more complex with intermediate landings, fan stairs or a spiral for example, the survey will be conducted quickly. Curved stairlift tracks are designed to suit your individual staircase so it is important the staircase is measured accurately to ensure your track is the best possible fit.
We will provide you with free advice and a no-obligation written quotation. Our trained consultant will come to your home to assess your staircase and discuss with you what kind of stairlift is best for you. They will then talk to you about the installation process and answer any other questions or concerns that you might have. There is absolutely no obligation for you to purchase a stairlift after you receive your written quotation.
Our stairlifts come with a slim rail and a compact carriage. They all have folding arms, seat and footrest, so they fold away neatly when they are not in use. This means they are practical for you and for the other members of your family. If you would like to see a stairlift in action, or check whether or not our stairlift range fits your needs, arrange a visit and come along to one of our showrooms. Our stairlift has been specifically designed to help out in cases where the stairs are narrow so we can fit a stairlift to the vast majority of staircases, it is only in a small number of cases where dimensions will prevent us from installing.
Stairlift tracks fall into two basic categories: straight and curved; it can be a little confusing to know which type you need for your staircase. If your staircase is straight and does not turn any corners between floors there are 3 stairlift systems for you to choose from. We also do curved stairlifts for staircases that turn corners. If you have limited knee or hip movement you may find a perch seat more comfortable. We have a perch seat option on straight stairlift system and are one of the few companies to offer a perch seat solution on a curved stairlift system.
All products are tailored to your specific needs and therefore, prices vary. They can change depending on the specific stair dimensions, the chosen stairlift model and any additional extras that you choose. Please book a free, no-obligation assessment with one of our trained sales consultants to obtain a personal written quotation.
Like most mechanical appliances we recommend that you service your stairlift once a year. Once your warranty period has expired during which all your servicing needs are covered, we are happy to offer annual service contracts to ensure your stairlift continues to perform at its best.
