Types of StairLifts

Stairlifts fall into two basic categories: straight and curved. The type you need will depend upon the design of your staircase.

Safety of Stairchair / Stairlift

The quality of our stairlifts is apparent in product safety, to name but one area. We are therefore also continuously working on the safety of our stairlifts, something which is evidenced in the variety of safety measures installed on the product.

Our stairlifts (and / or production facility) meet stringent safety standards. To be able to do this, our stairlifts are tested and approved by independent global test services, for example the Dutch Liftinstituut, the British Standards Institution and the German Technischer Überwachungs Verein (TܜV). This means that you can be certain that your stairlift meets the most stringent quality and safety criteria.

Safety is our #1 priority. All Handicare stairlifts carry applicable worldwide safety certifications and include seatbelts for maximum safety while in transit. 
Besides having the stairlift user being in control of its movement, our stairlifts have what are called “hold to run” toggle controls, which will make the stairlift stop immediately if the button is released. Furthermore, all Handicare stairlifts are equipped with 7 safety sensors that will automatically – and immediately – stop the lift if anything is detected in its path. 
And lastly, all Handicare stairlifts include an “Emergency stop” button to immediately stop the stairlift if necessary.


Stairlift Service

Besides setting the highest quality standards for our stairlifts, we also strive to ensure that you receive the best service - from the moment you call us to when your unit is installed in your home. With a goal of 100% customer satisfaction, we use a fully trained network of certified dealers to deliver exceptional service and communication.

With over 130 years of experience in helping people, Handicare understands the importance of your needs and delivering fast and customized solutions. Our friendly customer service team is on hand to answer any questions you may have about your stairlift purchase.
