Types Of Track:

Do you need a hinged track?

In order for the seat to get low enough for the user to sit on, it is necessary for the track to extend beyond the staircase to the hall floor. Some houses will have a doorway close to the bottom of the stairs and the track may intrude across this. In these circumstances a hinged track should be fitted. This means that the track can be folded away from the doorway giving clear access.

  • MANUAL HINGEThe 950 Compact, 950+ and 1000 Straight are available with a manual hinged track. This means you will need to raise and lower the track manually. The gas strut assisted hinge is designed to make manual operation as easy as possible.
  • POWERED HINGEThe 1000 Straight and the 2000 Curved are both available with an automatic hinged track. When operating the stairlift from the toggle, the hinge will lift/lower automatically.

When the stairlift is not in use the hinge is folded by holding a button on the remote control which means you do not need to move the track yourself. When the button is pressed your stairlift moves up the track and parks, the hinge section then moves automatically leaving the doorway clear.

Important: Hinged tracks should always be raised when users go to bed, particularly if they are enabling access to the front door of the property or creating an obstacle for other users of the household.

The Slide Track:

Similar to a powered hinge, the slide track works automatically when the toggle or remote control is activated.
  • A slide track is slightly shorter than the length of your staircase. When you start to travel up the staircase the track will move with you. The track will reach the top of your stairs before the stairlift; it will stop whilst your stairlift continues on its journey to the top where you can safely dismount. When you come downstairs the track will travel down with you so you can dismount safely at the bottom
  • The slide track is fitted with safety sensors at either end; these will halt the track if it encounters an obstacle during use. Your stairlift will continue to move towards the obstacle if desired where, if safe to do so, you can remove the obstruction and continue on your journey. Alternatively the track and the stairlift can move away from the obstruction. The slide track also offers safety benefits over a traditional hinged system by removing any risk of an object becoming caught in the hinge.

Other Companion stairlift features and option include:

  • Manual or powered swivel
  • Manual or powered footplate
  • Remote controls for calling your stairlift
  • Manual or powered hinge tracks
