Stair Lifts

  • Our mainstay chair for straight stairs, the Stannah 420 is rated for 350lbs and can be adjusted for height.
  • We provide a lifetime warranty on the motor & gearbox (the main moving parts), and have a three year buy-back program if you no longer need your stair lift.
  • New and USED models available.
  • Reliable battery power with constant charging. The Saxon runs along a 4" aluminum rail which is fastened to a few of the stair treads. Along the back of this track a charging system constantly tops up the batteries in the chair. This uses very little power, and ensures that the stairlift is always available for use (even during an extended power outage).
  • Easy folding. One of the armrests is connected internally to the footrest; lift up the armrest, and the footrest raises too. This avoids the need to bend over when folding the chair, which makes the chair safer to use, especially at the top of the stairs.
  • Swivel seat. At the top of the stairs the chair may be swiveled to face the top landing. In this position the back of the chair acts as a barrier across the stairs.
  • The seat belt clasps securely in front of the user
  • Adjustable seat height. During installation, the Saxon can be set to a comfortable height. Many users prefer a relatively high seat, which makes it easier for them to get in and out of the chair.
  • Dimensions measured from the wall are nominal - the addition of a wide baseboard or similar obstruction may affect the dimensions taken from this point. The dimensions are accurate, but you should add 1" clearance for the user.
    • Weight limit: 350lbs.
    • Minimum stair width: about 27". (The stairlift takes up less, but you need room for the users' knees)
    • Distance between armrests: 19"
    • Depth of seat cushion: 16"
    • Minimum seat height from floor: 18"
    • Maximum seat height from floor: 27"
    • Space needed at the bottom of the stairs: about 27" in front of first step (but chair can be folded and sent up the stairs when not in use)
    • Folded width from wall: 12.9"
    • Rail protrusion at bottom landing: about 15" unless a fold-up rail is fitted
    • Rail protrusion at top landing: about 4", but can be installed at 0" if there is a door at the top
    • Width of rail: 4"
    • Distance of rail from baseboard: usually about 3¾"
    • Speed: about 18'/minute (so about 45 seconds to ride up a typical staircase)
    • Remotes: two, one for each landing, infra-red wireless (like a TV remote, fewer buttons!)
    • Battery life - stairlift: typically 3-5 years
