Las Vegas Stairlifts - Guaranteed World's Lowest Prices on Stairway Staircase Acorn Ele-120 Seat Stair Lift and Indoor StairLift and Outdoor Stair Lift

A Stairway Staircase stair lift is a mechanical device for lifting people up and down the staircase.  For stairways that are at least 37" wide, a rail is mounted to the treads of the stairs. A seat lift chair is attached to the rail. The motorized seat chair is lifted along the rail.

Stairlifts are known variously as stair lifts, stair-lifts, chair lifts, stair gliders and by other names.

Modern stairway staircase lifts can be found with a wide variety of features such as adjustable seat height, battery isolation switches, call stations, 'flip-up' rail, key switch, folding step, speed governor, seatbelt, soft start and soft stop.

Straight indoor handicap and handicapped rails for use on domestic staircases are usually made from extruded aluminium or steel and come in various cross-sectional shapes. These rails may, typically, weigh over 30 kg, depending on the length. In most applications they are attached to the steps with metal brackets (sometimes called “cleats”).

If a rail crosses a doorway at the bottom of the stairs or causes an obstruction a hinge can be fitted so the end of the rail can be folded back out of the way when not in use.

Curved rails are made from materials such as steel or aluminum and come in various cross-sectional shapes according to the designer. Individual designs vary a lot and probably the key criterion is to make the curves with the smallest radius possible so they will wrap tightly around objects such as newel posts.

The sections of curved rails usually packaged well to prevent damage in transit and are unwrapped and assembled on site.

Rails for wheelchair platform disability and disabled stairlifts may be secured to walls in addition to the step fixings.

StairLift Carriages for Elderly

The stairway staircase carriage is the component which moves along the rail and normally runs on small diameter rollers. In most designs the carriage is pulled by a cable or chain, or driven along the inclined rail by a rack and pinion system or other drive arrangement.

Most domestic carriages have a seat with arms and a footrest. Some special models have a stand-on platform also known as a "perch" seat. For users with shorter legs a short seat can be fitted, to make the lift more comfortable to sit on. Disability Stair lift manufacturers have a number of different seat types depending on individual needs.

The conventional layout for a typical domestic disabled stair lift is to have the seat at right angles to the rail so the user travels  sidesaddle. At the top of the staircase the seat can be swivelled, commonly through around 45 degrees or 90 degrees, then locked in place to allow the user to alight from it onto a landing. Stairlifts are available with either a manual swivel or a powered swivel, depending on the users ability.

Most swivel seats have a safety switch so the handicap stair chairlift won’t move unless the seat is locked into its travel position. Special models with seats facing the bottom of the staircase have been produced for users with spinal or other conditions which prevent use of the conventional seat layout. More room is need on the landing with these special seats.

Straight rail stairlifts

These are the most common type of handicapped chairlifts used in private dwellings with straight indoor and outdoor stairs have a straight rail (track) which is fixed to the steps of the staircase. Straight chairlifts have a shorter installation and manufacturing time because it requires fewer customizations. This generally means that they are also cheaper than other types, as the only variable between different installations is the actual length of the track.

Curved rail Seat Chairlifts

These are normally much more unusual and costly than those with straight rails because they have to be manufactured to suit the individual staircase (curved stairs). This sometimes involves careful measurement, design and manufacturing. The installation process usually takes longer than for a straight domestic stairlift. Some of them follow stairs´ standards.

Wheelchair platform Handicap stair lifts

These come under the general definition of handicap stair lift and are usually of much heavier construction than a domestic stairlift.

Most platform stairlifts for elderly are used in public access buildings or outside private homes.

The platform is large enough to accommodate a wheelchair and its user, and may have folding edge flaps which drop down and act as ramps to allow for variations in floor levels. These flaps also prevent the wheelchair from going over the edge of the platform.

The rails are, necessarily, of heavy construction to support the load and the drive system is usually accommodated within a tubular section rail or aluminium extrusion. Some models have steel cables inside the tube, others have chains; yet others may use a rack and pinion system.

Outdoor stairlifts for Elderly

Outdoor Seat Stairway lifts come with seats, perches, footplates or platforms and are sold worldwide. They are similar to indoor stairlifts but with improved weatherproofing.

Pre-owned Staircase stairlifts

There is a second-user market for some types of stairlift. This is most common with straight rail domestic types. The rails can be cut to length if too long, or extended with a "joining kit". Most models allow the carriage to be "re-handed" so it can be used on the left or right side of the staircase.

During the early days of curved rail seat chairlifts there was no second user market because of the difficulty of matching rails to a different layout. Even staircases built to the same design specification in neighbouring houses have variations, but in most attempted "transplants" there are too many differences to make it practicable. Many owners have had to pay to have unwanted curved chairlifts removed.

More recently, some curved rails have been produced to a modular design so components can be unbolted and used elsewhere, subject to design and safety considerations. In some cases, tubular section rails which are welded during manufacture, are produced by specialist rail companies so they can be used with a pre-owned carriage, controls, and other components. This is, perhaps, like putting an old locomotive on new railway lines. It provides a lower cost solution than buying a totally new system.

Some insurance companies have offered breakdown policies for stairlifts. Manufacturers and installers have offered an extended warranty, rather like those available for domestic white goods

 AC and DC power

Early stair lifts mostly had alternating current (AC) drive motors which ran at full mains voltage (around 100 volts in North America, 230 volts in Europe). An "energy cable" ran alongside or through the rail to carry the power from the supply point to the carriage.

More recently, domestic stair lifts have been powered from rechargeable batteries and use direct current (DC). One of the selling points is that a DC stairlift will continue to function during a power outage, provided the batteries are sufficiently charged. Most stair lifts have a 'chargepoint' where the unit will 'park' to charge its batteries. Some straight stairlifts have the ability to continuously charge no matter where they are left along the track.

With most DC models the batteries are accommodated within the carriage and travel with it.

Ele-120 Stair Lift Controls

Residential Home Stairlifts are largely operated using a control on the arm of the lift. This is either a switch or a toggle type lever. This larger toggle switch enables users even with limited mobility or painful condition to use stairlifts easily and safely.

Electronic controls are used extensively. Many stairlifts have radio frequency or infared  remote controllers.

Control circuit design varies greatly among the different manufacturers and models. Curved rail stairlifts have more complex controls than those with straight rails.

The seat of a curved rail stair lift may have to be tilted so it remains horizontal whilst going around curves and negotiates different angles of incline. This requires an additional motor and link system.

Also, the carriage is slowed down on bends but travels faster on straight runs. This means a more complex control system. Modern controls have small microprocessors which “learn” the characteristics of the journeys and keep the data in memory. They also record the number of journey and direction. This assists service engineers on maintenance calls.

Some development was started at the onset of the 21st Century Stairlifts into self-diagnostic controls. The idea was that stairlifts would predict when components were starting to deteriorate and automatically pass the information to the service provider so a visit could be arranged.

Stairway Staircase StairLift Safety

To satisfy safety codes stairlifts usually have cut-out switches connected to “safety edges” and other protective devices so the drive power is disconnected if something goes wrong. Modern lifts have a high degree of comfort, but safety is always paramount. "Safety edges" are a common feature to the power pack and footplate. "Safety edges" ensure that if there is any obstruction on the stairs the stairlift will automatically stop and only travel away from the obstruction.

Stairlifts are used by people of all ages and child car seats can usually be fixed a standard stairlift seat using the seat belt provided with the stairlift system.

Codes of practice and technical specifications apply to stairlift manufacture.

In North America these codes may be relevant:

  • ASME A17.1 - 1990, Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators
  • ASME A18.1 - 2005 Safety Standard for Platform Lifts and Stairway Chairlifts

Self-installation

Today, self-installation of stairlifts is becoming a common trend. Stairlifts are available for purchase that can be self-installed.

within the home medical equipment industry that do not recommend that people attempt to install these products themselves. They believe that in terms of warranty, long term care, and service, it is much more economical to have a trained professional install these products. In addition, these professionals are also aware of all safety measures and concerns associated with the proper installation of stairlifts, as well as the applicable local elevator codes.

Travel speed

Stairlifts normally have "soft" starts so the user is not jerked as the carriage starts to move. Typical travel speed for domestic straight rail stairlift carriages range between 0.07 metres per second (13.78 feet per minute, 0.16 miles per hour) and 0.15 metres per second (30 feet per minute, 0.34 miles per hour). The speed of curved rail stairlift carriages may vary on the journey if the controls cause them to slow on inclines and bends.
