Most stairlifts are fitted with a safety sensor unit which will detect any obstructions and stop the stairlift from moving, resuming only when the blockage is cleared.

Stairlifts are powered by mains electricity but this source of power runs through a battery unit before it reaches the motor.  In the event of a power cut, the battery will be fully charged and able to power the stairlift unit without the need for mains electricity.

Stannah’s Starla and Siena ranges have a maximum weight capacity of 25st. It is recommended that you do not exceed the weight of this limit.   

Making this decision is completely down to how you feel but there are some signs that may indicate that you need a stairlift such as 

  • Are you are taking more than five minutes to climb a standard length staircase?
  • Are experiencing lightheadedness, wheezing or are exhausted by the time you reach the top.
  • Have suffered a fall due to balance problems or deteriorated eyesight.

It’s important to realise that stairlifts are a way of protecting your wellbeing and preventing potentially fatal accidents.  

We offer an annual service agreement for your stairlift and we can also offer an extended warranty package if required. Keeping your stairlift serviced regularly is the best way to keep in tip top condition!
