Gartec Platform Stairlift
Economical and space saving, a platform stair lift is a very popular and versatile access solution for wheelchair users. The platform stairlift is similar to a normal stair lift, but with a platform for wheelchairs rather than a seat. The wheelchair user rolls onto the platform, safety bars lower, and a constant pressure joystick controls movement along the staircase.
A platform stairlift offers simple access to upper floors for wheelchair users, whilst taking up very little space when folded away out of use. Discrete, economical and space saving, a platform stairlift is a very popular and versatile access solution. The Gartec platform stairlift is suitable for use internally and externally, making it ideal for use as a home lift and commercial lift for wheelchairs.
How Platform Stair Lifts Work
A constant pressure joystick controls the motion of the platform stairlift, operated by the wheelchair user.
Alternatively an attendant can call and send the platform stair lift using a ‘wander-lead’. The barrier arms must be fully lowered and ramps on either side of the platform stairlift raised before operation, giving safety and security as a wheelchair stairlift.
