Savaria Stairfriend Stairlift Resolves Complex Staircase Challenges

Often, stairs become a major barrier for the elderly and those with mobility issues, preventing them from accessing the various levels of their home. Savaria’s Stairfriend Stairlift is a popular mobility system that can help resolve such accessibility challenges. This stairlift can be customized to fit stairs that feature a change of direction, curve or spiral. It reduces the barriers posed by stairs in residential and commercial buildings, enabling aged people who have difficulty in climbing stairs to get to the upper floor quite effortlessly.

This is an easy-to-operate curved stair lift comes with controls on the armrest as well as two radio frequency remote controls. It features a double-rail system which ensures higher durability and strength. The footrest and carriage sensors quickly stop operation if any obstruction is encountered on the stairway.

The rail system is specifically built to provide an out-of-the way parking. The fold-away seat and footrest design allows the device to be kept out of the way when not in use, not obstructing other stair traffic. The seat features an open lower back design to keep the occupant comfortable while travelling to the next floor or landing.

This residential curved stairlift has a total capacity of 350 lbs/160 kg and travels at a nominal speed of 20 ft/minute. On-board controls enable soft start and smooth stop. The Stairfriend is equipped with several safety features:

>> Upper and lower safety limit switches

>> Safety switch for the swivel seat (prevents the curved stair lift from running if the seat is not locked in the riding position)

>> Retractable seat belt

>> Over speed brake (optional - if the normal speed exceeds)

>> Onboard diagnostics to identify any service issues   

>> Emergency stop button (optional)

Always ensure that you purchase the Savaria Stairfriend Stairlift from a reputable dealer. The right elevator and lift company will ensure prompt and hassle-free installation, on-call support, and maintenance and testing services to keep your curved stair lift in excellent order.
