Straight stairlift tracks
Stairlift tracks fall into two basic categories: straight and curved; it can be a little confusing to know which type you need for your staircase. Straight stairlift tracks can only travel in straight lines, they cannot turn a corner or go around a bend. Beechfield offers a range of straight stairlifts to suit your needs.
No need to redecorate
The stairlift track is fitted to the stairs, not the wall, so it is unlikely you will need to redecorate following the installation of your stairlift. Like all of our stairlifts, the straight stairlifts have a battery backup which means it will continue to work in the event of a power cut so you do not need to worry about being stranded up or downstairs.
Safety as standard
- All Handicare stairlifts have safety sensors on the power pack and footplate, these are designed to stop the lift if it meets any obstruction.
- All Handicare stairlifts have a diagnostic display so that you can monitor the status of your stairlift.
- Your stairlift will also come with a seat belt as standard for additional peace of mind.
- All upholstery options are also fire retardant.
Easy to Use
All that you need to do to use your Handicare stairlift is to press or hold the large robust toggle or joystick in the direction you wish to travel and the stairlift will transport you smoothly and safely.
All Handicare stairlifts also come with two remote controls which can be used to call the stairlift between floors. This not only allows you to park at the top or bottom of the stairs, it is ideal for multi-user situations as the stairlift can be called between levels.
User Assessment and PhotoSurvey
Our representative will conduct a user assessment at the same time as conducting the staircase survey. During this assessment some measurements may be taken to ensure the stairlift chosen is suitable for the user. There will also be some simple questions to see which would be the best side to place the controls, what sort of seat belt would best suit the users and to ascertain which features would be required now and in the future.
Most staircase surveys are very quick and easy to perform. If your staircase is more complex with intermediate landings, fan stairs or a spiral for example, the survey may be conducted quickly with Handicare photographic survey systems (PhotoSurvey). This specially developed electronic system maximises the accuracy a staircase survey whilst minimizing the time needed to carry it out.
Cards are placed on and around the stairs and photographed. Specialist software measures these images to create an accurate 3D model of your staircase so the track is designed to fit your staircase perfectly.
