Stair Chair Lifts
Do you have trouble climbing the stairs? This may be the solution! Accessibility lifts can be of great benefit by allowing you or your loved one to stay at home as long as possible.
Installing a used stair lift is a very cost effective, easy and a safe way of securing more independence and contentment at home.
Why waste valuable energy and take needless risks climbing stairs unnecessarily when you can use a stair lift?

Top 7 Stair Chair Lift Features
Fold up seat and foot rest.
Simple "continuous pressure" push-button operation on the arm of the chair, so you can drive the chair up or down the track when you're sitting in place on the seat and ready to go.
Seat belt to hold you safely on the seat.
Two hand-held remotes "call/send" the lift up/down if required (i.e. the chair is parked at the bottom, but someone else at the top wants to use it).
Safety sensors to detect possible obstructions.
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW EXACTLY DO STAIR CHAIR LIFTS WORK?
All stairs run on a track, which is usually aluminum. The track is attached directly onto the treads of your stairs with lag bolts, approximately every third tread. The track is NOT bolted to the wall of your staircase, only to the treads.
The motor in the stair lift then drives the chair either up or down the track. You control the direction and motion with a "continuous-pressure" control switch on the armrest of the lift, while you're safely seated in place.
HOW LONG DO STAIR LIFTS TAKE TO INSTALL?
Generally, they are installed in a few hours.
WHAT HAPPENS TO MY STAIR LIFT DURING A POWER OUTAGE?
Most lift motors are now powered using Direct Current (DC) batteries, which will automatically charge when not in use, and will temporarily act as a backup during a power outage.
ARE STAIR LIFTS NOISY?
Installed correctly, modern DC-powered stair lifts are very energy efficient and quiet.
WILL MY STAIRCASE STILL BE USEABLE AFTER THE LIFT IS INSTALLED?
Yes. When not in use, your stair lift will be parked at the top or bottom of the staircase, and you can then fold the stair lift seat, arms and footrest into a vertical position. This will conserve space to allow other people to pass by and walk up and down your stairs.
WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM WEIGHT A STAIR LIFT CAN CARRY?
This varies depending on the manufacturer and model. Many stair lifts can safely carry a maximum of 300 lbs. More robust models with a capacity of up to 400 lbs. are also available.
