Summary : We like the Starla Stairlift because it comes with numerous comfort and safety features as well as with several upholstery choices.
Stannah is one of the most renowned stair lift manufacturers in the world. What sets them apart from their competitors is their commitment to satisfy all the needs of elderly or disabled people who are having difficulties climbing stairs. You might ask yourself how do they do this? For starters, they submit all their stair lifts to rigorous tests of quality, safety and durability. Furthermore, their products are installed by professionals who clean up after the installation process and who make sure that the customers know everything there is to know about how to use the products they acquire. Let’s take a look at their newest product, the Starla Stairlift.
The curved Starla Stairlift is to be installed by the professionals in the Stannah staff, who will explain to the customers, how to use all of the lift’s features. The product has a 300 pounds capacity and it is equipped with an ergonomic soft control on the armrest, a footrest fold button, remotes on both the top and the bottom landing and a key lock which will prevent unauthorized use. The lift features a slight recline to the seat which offers an added sense of security when the lift is in use. The lift also features a safety sensor which can detect obstructions in the way, a seat-load-sensor which prevents unexpected movements and an armrest sensor which doesn’t allow the lift to operate unless the armrest is lowered. It also features a five point harness retractable seat belt. The product comes with a 20 year warranty for the motor and the gearbox and a 10 year warranty for the rest of the parts.
The Starla Stairlift features the most comfortable stair lift chair. Now only are the seat and the backrest very comfortable, but the overall chair is designed in order to be as easy to use as possible. The soft control located on the armrest is easy to use, even by people with limited strength. If we had any complains whatsoever about this stair lift would be the fact that the armrest are not removable, which might sometimes cause some inconveniences. Nevertheless, we like the fact that the footrest can be lowered or raised without having to bend over.
One of the things that you rarely see in the stair lift industry is a product with design choices. This is where Stannah stays ahead of the competition as all of their stair lifts feature numerous upholstery choices. As far as the Starla Stairlift goes, you can choose between the following upholstery shades: stone, red, green, brown and beige. The chairs are fully upholstered (seat, backrest and footrest) and they even come with trim choices such as dark wood trim or light wood trim. Furthermore, the Starla Stairlift also has a rather slim design which will allow other members of the family to comfortably navigate the stairs, without having to walk sideways past the stair lift.
