Gartec Platform Stairlift

Our platform stairlift provides simple access to upper floors for wheelchair users, offering similar operation to a normal stairlift, but with a platform for use as a wheelchair lift on staircases.

The Platform Stairlift - A Stairlift for Wheelchairs

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.

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.
