The HomeGlide’s Straight Stairlifts design is simple, sturdy and above all satisfies your accessibility requirements. The HomeGlide and HomeGlide Extra are fitted onto your staircase and not your wall. This allows the lift to be installed quickly, easily and with minimal disruption to your home.
The seat is comprised of thick and firm padding that ensures comfort and durability. The upholstery is also fire retardant, liquid repellent and easy to clean. The HomeGlide Extra comes with a linked footrest. This feature makes it almost effortless when unfolding the chair as the footrest is linked to the seat.
If you have a doorway at the foot of the staircase a stairlift with an automatic powered hinged track avoids a trip hazard. You simply send the lift up a few steps when not in use to leave doorways clear.
The manual swivel seat is the cheaper option of the two and requires the user to lift a lever at the top of the stairs to turn themselves onto the landing. The additional motor on the powered swivel variant will automate this process.
