Inclined Staircase Platform Lifts

Ideal for moving impaired mobility users and wheelchairs along existing staircases.

Platform stairlifts are tailored to the needs of wheelchair and impaired mobility users and transport users comfortably and safely to every floor. A platform stairlift transports the wheelchair user sitting in his or her own wheelchair and is the perfect solution for all those who cannot transfer from chair to lift without the assistance of others.

Whether stairs with two steps or curving stairs extending over several floors – our platform stairlifts can be mounted on virtually any stairs. Each running rail is manufactured individually by hand and thus adapted precisely to the conditions of your site.

Thanks to the special arrangement and rigidity of the barriers, you can also use our platform stairlifts while standing up.

Ideally suited for:

  • Bars
  • Pubs
  • Restaurants
  • Hotels
  • Offices
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Public Areas
