Stairlifts run on mains and batteries

Just in case there’s a power cut

Power cuts can be very inconvenient. They can stop you from getting on with your life until the power comes back on. That might be true for your kitchen appliances, but not for your stairlift.

Your stairlift keeps going, even in a power cut

You might have bought an electrical appliance and not checked whether it works in a power cut. It might have let you down when you needed it most.

When it comes to buying a stairlift, this becomes a major concern. You don’t want to be stuck halfway up your stairs in the dark.

That’s why we’ve made sure you won’t.

Stannah stairlifts don’t stop because you’ve lost power. Stannah stairlifts are all fitted with batteries, which are constantly charged by the mains supply. If the mains supply cuts off, the batteries take over and get you safely to your destination. The batteries charge automatically when the chair is stopped at a charging point, so you’ll never get caught out.

As well as that, Stannah lifts come with two remote controls, one at the top and the other at the bottom of your stairs. If your chair is on a different floor, you can call it using the control to make sure you’re never stuck. If you are unlucky enough to have a long power cut, the batteries will last you a few journeys, so you can call your lift and ride it safely, knowing you won’t get stuck.

As well as being safe and comfortable, Stannah stairlifts are extremely quiet. That means you can use them at any time of day or night, without disturbing anyone else.

With your Stannah, you’ll be free, safe and independent, and you’ll keep moving, just like your stairlift!
