Can people without a wheelchair also use the lift?
Everyone can be transported with our stairlifts. For people without a wheelchair a folding chair can be provided for this purpose. Therefore a platform stairlift is the better alternative to a conventional chair stairlift. The lift can be used for transporting groceries or baggages along with the passenger!
As people live longer lives each day, more and more people become bound to a wheelchair in the late stages of their lives. Therefore, once a stairlift becomes necessary, you should consider getting a platform lift already instead of making 2 considerable investments over time.
How is a platform stairlift functioning?
Stairlifts are usually operated via on-board batteries that power a 24V DC motor. Batteries are charged in each landing station automatically.
What is the life span of a platform stairlift?
Depending on the use and maintenance intervals, an average lifespan of a lift can be considered as 25 years.
How is the lift controlled?
The platform is equipped with up and down buttons as well as an emergency stop and alarm button. For each landing station a wireless control station is provided (these are either wall mounted or handheld) to call and send the lift from the landings.
Are your platform stairlifts suitable for outdoor installation?
All of our lifts are installed outdoors without any trouble. For outdoor stairlifts we zinc coated the metal parts, provide parts in stainless steel or aluminium and deliver a special cover to protect the platform from heavy weather when parked in periods of no usage.
What happens in the event of a power failure?
Thanks to the integrated batteries the lift can do multiple runs in the event of a power failure!
