A platform stairlift perfectly designed for use over stairs

Our Stairiser inclined platform lifts provide the ideal access solution for public or commercial buildings which can't fit a vertical platform or passenger lift. These versatile inclined stairlifts can carry one person safely over a flight of stairs, seated either in a wheelchair or the choice of a person seated on the lift seat provided. 

Our Stairiser is one of the slimmest wheelchair platform stair lifts available in the market. Simple to use and operate by the wheelchair user, it is the ideal addition, offering easy and safe access to your building. An unobtrusive design means when not in use the folding platform and barrier arm ensure the wheelchair lift folds neatly up and leaves the stairway free for pedestrian use.

Our range of wheelchair lifts for buildings is suitable for both straight and curved staircases. Typically used in existing buildings, the wheelchair lift can be wall-mounted or stanchion mounted, or a combination of both to enable fixing whatever the building restrictions. It’s suitable for indoor or outdoor external use, plus it’s neat and compact design means the installation can take as little as one day – leaving you being able to provide access for all in your building.

With more than 10,000 Stannah platform lifts installed across the UK, you can find our lifts in churches, schools, care homes, listed buildings, hotels and retail units. We will support you every step of the way, from design to installation and throughout the lift's lifetime  - trust in Stannah.

Features and benefits

Flexible & slim design

When the wheelchair stairlift is not in use the platform folds neatly away, leaving the stairway free for pedestrian use.

A choice of fixing methods, parking options and drive layouts make it ideal for restrictive landing spaces and building limitations.

Easy to operate

Easy to use constant pressure controls allow wheelchair users (or others) to operate it independently.

The lift stops automatically at the upper and lower landings and the intuitive controls allow the user to stop the lift at any time.

Safety & standards

Built-in safety features mean it's impossible to operate the lift until the barrier arms and ramps are folded in place.

Complies with the Equality Act 2010, EN81-40 Safety rules for the construction and installation of lifts and with the Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2008.
