The Icon 1 Straight Stairlift comes with a smart seat, optional powered features and the sleekest track in their range. When you choose an Icon stairlift, you are not only selecting a model that complies with British and European standards; you are also choosing an ISO Quality-approved supplier who conforms to the ethical business practices required by both the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA), whose code of practice is approved by the Office of Fair Trading, and the Lift and Escalator Industry Association (LEIA).
You have the peace of mind of knowing that your stairlift has been made by a respected, reputable company with a tested reputation for safety, reliability, and innovation. The Icon 1 has a weight capacity of 160kg/25 st. (see the Icon 1 XL for a heavier limit). The Icon 1 can be combined with a powered hinge solution to prevent the track from obscuring any doorway at the base of the stairs. Or a sliding track may be required.
What is a stairlift?
A stairlift is an electronic device that aids the transportation of a person with mobility limitations up and down the stairs in a home. Typically, a stairlift functions on a railing system which allows for a smooth and seamless trip from one floor to the other. Stairlifts are built to move at a slow pace along the staircase to ensure complete comfort and safety during use. Through the evolution of stairlifts, they are now fitted on the stair treads rather than on the wall. On top of this, stairlifts can be fitted on curved staircases; although this can be a little more complicated to install.
