Handicare 1000 Indoor Straight Stairlift FAQS
How does a Stairlift work?
Stairlifts travel on a rail that attaches to the treads of a staircase and in most cases do not require additional support from a wall. They are battery powered, with a cord running from the top or bottom of the rail to a standard outlet to keep the batteries charged.
I only need a stairlift for a short period of time, can I rent one?
Many of our locations offer straight stairlifts for rental. They are a great option while recovering from an injury or when you have a friend or relative visiting who needs assistance getting up the stairs. Renting is a more affordable option than buying a lift. Curved stairlifts are not available for rental because the rails are custom-made for your staircase and cannot be reused. In some situations, two straight units can be installed for rental use in split level homes or staircases that have landings in the middle.
What if I lose power?
Our stairlifts are battery powered, with a cord running from the top or bottom of the rail to a standard outlet to keep the batteries charged. In the case of a power outage, a fully charged unit will continue to run for multiple trips before needing to be charged again.
Will the stairlift still allow people to use stairs?
When not in use, the seat, armrests, and footrest can be folded up, allowing for normal use of the stairs. Stairlifts also come with a remote control that can be used to send the chair to the top or bottom of the stairs when not in use.
My staircase is complicated – will a stair lift fit?
For the large majority of households, the answer is yes! Stairlifts with straight rails are the least expensive and most common. For staircases with turns, curves, or intermediate landings a custom rail is manufactured. We can even install a custom curve stairlift on a spiral staircase!
Can a stairlift be used outdoors?
Yes! If your outdoor space isn’t accessible, then an outdoor stairway lift might be the solution you need. It is similar to an indoor stair lift, but it’s made with weather-resistant materials to withstand outdoor elements. Simply sit on the outdoor stair lift to be transported up or down the stairs with relaxation and ease. Contact your local Next Day Access for more information.
