Internal or external step lifts for wheelchair users and people in public and commercial buildings

Our electric step-lifts are ideal for the elderly, people with pushchairs or wheelchair users, delivering easy access for those who have difficulty with steps. These wheelchair step lifts also act as low-level access lifts, or split-level lifts, between floor levels where vertical travel is less than 2 metres.

Our Lowrisers are low-profile lift platforms designed to be neat and compact while complying with all the relevant product and safety standards. Their compact design means the installation can take as little as two days, with minimal building work required. Our Lowriser range is suitable for indoors and outdoors and is equipped with features such as easy-to-use constant pressure controls for intuitive use, an emergency stop button and manual lowering. 

With a vast choice of standard configurations and bespoke options; whether you are looking for a cost-effective access solution or something out of the ordinary, these high-quality step platform lifts can accommodate all your requirements.

We’ll support you every step of the way, from design to installation and throughout the lift’s lifetime – you can rely on Stannah.
