Summary : We like the Stannah Outdoor Stairlift because it has great safety features and it comes with an optional call station which allows it to be used by more than one person.
Outdoor stairs can be a real challenge for people with limited mobility, whether they consist in just a few steps or a long flight of stairs. Outdoor stairs are particularly dangerous for seniors as they can sometimes be slippery. In order to avoid any accidents, we advise you to consider an outdoor stair lift. We recommend the Stannah Outdoor Stairlift as it features a reliable battery that allows the lift to operate even during power outages.
As we mentioned, despite being electrically powered, the Stannah stair lift can also operate during power outages as it also works on battery power. Generally, depending on the length of the stairs and the weight of the user, the self charging battery will be sufficient for up 20 trips up and down the stairs. Moreover, the battery also ensures a smooth ride at all times as well as a gentle stop or start. The lift features a folding seat, armrests and a footrest. It has a maximum weight capacity of 300 pounds. It is also equipped with a sensor which can recognize obstructions and stops the lift automatically in order to avoid accidents. You can also choose an optional call station which is ideal if more than one person is using the lift. The call station allows you to call the stair lift or send it to someone else. The lift also features an over-speed governor, a seat belt, a removable key lock and two remote controls. It comes with a 10 year warranty on the parts and a 20 year warranty on the motor/gearbox.
For optimal safety, the Stannah Outdoor Stairlift is not fastened to a wall but to the stair treads. It also features hard-wired landing controls. It can be fitted to any straight stairs and it comes with a professional installation. Moreover, in order to ensure a safe landing, the lift features a manually powered swivel which allows the seat to face the landing space in order for the user to safety get off or on the chair. The lift’s controls can be customized for either left-handed or right-handed users.
We like the Stannah Outdoor Stairlift, because, like all Stannah stair lifts, it has a slim profile and it folds neatly when it is not in used in order not to be an inconvenience for the rest of the family members. Moreover, the chair can be folded without having to bend over, a valuable feature for people with back problems. Furthermore, this stair lift has a durable design. The rugged vinyl cover is very resistant and can withstand even harsh weather conditions. Last but not least, the stair lift is designed in order to be operational all year round.
