Handicare is one of the world’s largest and most trusted manufacturers of stairlifts.
They have helped thousands of people maintain their independence by providing reliable and safe solutions for anyone having difficulty climbing up and down their stairs.
The Simplicity Straight stairlift is one of the most popular stairlifts available.
If you do not require a powered swivel option and your home has a straight staircase the Simplicity Straight stairlift offers a reliable, cost-effective and simple solution to the problem of climbing up and down stairs.
The Simplicity seat swivel as standard is manually operated but a powered footplate can easily be added if needed.
As standard, the Simplicity Stairlift comes with a clip seat belt for the users’ safety and is available in a neutral sand coloured, easy to wipe clean flame retardant fabric.
A great feature of the Simplicity series track is its ability to charge the batteries whenever and wherever the lift is parked. This effectively means that the lift can be parked on any part of the track when not in use and the batteries will still be charged.
The Simplicity track can be fitted with either a manual (gas strut assisted) hinge or the innovative Slide track which is only available on Handicare stairlifts.
The slide track removes the need for a hinge as the track moves automatically up the staircase at the same time as the seat meaning there is no obstruction at the top or bottom of the stairs and you don’t have to manually lower it.
The slide track is fitted with smart sensors that will stop the track should it encounter an obstacle.
- Elegant and compact design
- Low cost
- Continuous charging function
- Silence of operation
- Fast installation at home
- Equipped with seat belt
- Retractable or sliding rail (optional)
