Heavy Duty Straight Stairlifts

Featuring a single slimline track, it contains two park points as standard allowing you to charge the battery at both the top and bottom of the stairs. There is also the option of a powered hinge which will stop doorways at the bottom of your staircase becoming obscured.

Our Heavy Duty Stairlift Installations

Heavy Duty Curved Stairlifts 

The layout of some homes mean that a straight stairlift is not a viable option. In such cases, you will need to install a curved heavy duty stairlift. At Leodis, we offer clients one of the best models on the market in the handicare 4000.

The cutting edge twin rail system is specifically designed so it can integrate seamlessly into your staircase. The 4000 model has an array of automated features that can be tailored to your personal requirements. These include a folding hinge to prevent it interfering with adjacent doorways, along with powered swivel and footrest for convenience.

With its sturdy twin rail design, this system ensures a smooth and stable ride while navigating sharp turns with ease. Offering the tightest rail bends available, it is well suited for spiral or curved staircases as well as narrow hallways.

You have the flexibility to customise the rail colour to complement your interior decor, and the seat can be personalised with a variety of colours across three distinct style options: the Style, the Smart, or the Simplicity.

These different styles come with slightly different features and options which are outlined below:  

Smart Seat 

The smart seat is a practical and durable seat option that can be offered with powered features so there is no need to bend when folding the footrest or turn when getting on or off the seat.

The maximum capacity of this is: 

  • Handicare 4000 Hinged rail 136kg/21½ st
  • Handicare 4000 with non-hinged rail 136kg/21½ st standard rail and 160kg/25¼ st with HD kit. 
  • The Smart seat also offers versions with additional arm spacers to increase the distance between the arms.

Other options available with the smart seat are : 

  • Body harness
  • Powered footrest
  • Powered swivel seat

Simplicity Seat 

For anyone who doesn’t require a powered swivel option, this model provides you with a safe and affordable solution for climbing the stairs. The seat is upholstered in a fire retardant wipe free sand coloured fabric.

This seat is manually operated but you have the option of adding a powered footrest if needed. A retractable seatbelt is included as standard; however, if preferred, you can order this model with a velcro alternative.

Maximum capacity is : 

  • Handicare 4000 Hinged rail 136kg/21½ st 
  • Handicare 4000 with non-hinged rail 136kg/21½ st standard rail and 160kg/25¼ st with HD rail 

You also have the option of the following extras: 

  • Powered footplates
  • One way powered swivel seat

Some of the options available with the perch seat include:

  • Body harness
  • Powered footrest
