Icon 2 Stairlift

Description

The Icon 2 Stairlift is a well established versatile stairlift system with some of the tightest track bends available from anyone; it can accommodate a wide range of staircase configurations and will hug the edge of your staircase. The twin-tube system provides a safe and smooth ride, and whilst available in two colours as standard, light grey or gunmetal, it can be supplied in any colour to match your décor.

The Icon 2 Stairlift twin-tube curved stairlifts are tailored to meet your needs exactly. Icon curved stairlifts can travel around corners, across intermediate landings and even up spiral staircases! They are tailored for your staircase, so you know the track will fit snugly while giving you a smooth ride. Optional powered features to fold the footplate and swivel the seat at the top of the staircase to allow for easy exit are available. The track can be designed to take you from the ground floor directly onto the landing level to suit your needs exactly. In addition, the Icon 2 Curved Stairlift can be combined with a powered automatic hinge solution to prevent the track from obscuring any doorway at the base of the stairs.

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 for installation.

The different types of stairlifts

Stairlifts are constantly evolving in order to suit as many specific cases as possible. It can be quite overwhelming when you start to look into the different types of stairlifts that are on the market overall, we offer 2 types of stairlifts at the moment. We can provide a free, no-obligation assessment for straight, curve stairlift, platform or through floor lift in your home or even outside if you have accessibility issues leading to your property.

Powered Hinge

If you have a doorway or obstruction close to the base of your stairs, you may need a hinged track.

The track must extend beyond the staircase to the hall floor for the seat to get low enough for the user to sit on. However, 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.

Powered Hinge

The Icon 1 and the Icon 2 are 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. Instead, your stairlift moves up the track and parks; the hinge section then moves automatically, leaving the doorway clear.

Important:

Hinge tracks should always be raised when users go to bed, particularly if they enable access to the front door of a property or create an obstacle for other household users.

Power saving

When your stairlift is not being used you can fold it up to maximise free space in your hallway

All Icon stairlifts can be folded up to maximise the available space. The footplate and seat can be folded up to increase available space leaving the staircase as clear as possible for other users.

“Parking and calling your stairlift”

All Icon stairlifts come with two remote controls as standard, so you can have one upstairs and one downstairs. This means you can send your stairlift up and down the track without having to sit on it. This not only allows you to park at the top or bottom of the stairs, but it is also ideal for multi-user situations as your stairlift can be called between levels, just like a stairlift

Footplate

Manual footplate

Lifted and lowered by hand, manual footplates are fitted with an easy fold mechanism that minimises the strength required to fold the footplate up or down.

Powered Footplate

If you choose the powered footplate option it will remove the need for you to bend down to fold or unfold the footplate. You can choose to have a footplate that folds automatically when the seat is folded and unfolded, or that is operated separately to the seat by a switch in the seat arm so you can raise and lower the footplate whilst seated.
