Continuous Charge: The continuous charge function allows the lift to be parked on any part of the track when it is not in use. This means you do not need to worry about where you leave your lift on the track as the batteries will charge in any position.
Powered Swivel: When your stairlift reaches the top of the stairs, you will need to swivel the seat around to exit onto the landing safely. With the manual swivel option, the stairlift comes with a handle at either side of the seat. These models swivel manually with these handles, locking in place toward the landing for a safe dismount.
Our powered swivel option the swivel is operated by holding a toggle when you arrive at the top of the staircase. Our powered swivels have a manual override for emergency release to improve stairway access if necessary.
Powered Footplate: The footplate and seat on your straight stairlift can be folded up to increase available space when not in use. This feature leaves the staircase as clear as possible for other users. Lifted and lowered by hand, manual footplates are fitted with an easy fold mechanism that reduces the force required to fold the footplate up and down. When you decide on the powered footplate option you no longer have to bend down to fold or unfold the footplate.
You can choose to have a footplate that folds automatically when the seat is folded and unfolded, or that is operated separately to the seat by a switch in the seat arm so you can operate the footplate while seated.
Parking and Calling your Straight Stairlift: Our stright stairlifts come with remote controls allowing you to send your stairlift up and down the track without sitting in it. This feature is perfect for multi-user situations as your stairlift can be called between levels, just like an elevator.
