Stair lift Safety Features the basics:

Brooks Stair lifts come fitted with an inertia reel seatbelt, which are identical to those fitted in cars. This enables the seatbelt to automatically retract when not in use, giving you that extra confidence on your journeys up or down the staircase.

Our stair lifts have built in safety sensors that automatically stop the stair lift if anything is in the way of its journey up or down the stairs. These sensors are highly effective and will therefore detect anything around the footrest of the stair lift that could potentially be a hazard when the stair lift is in use. This stops any unecessary accidents from happening.

Smooth start and stop feature - This is essential for everyone but particularly those who may suffers with a bad back. It eliminates any jolting at the start and end of each journey. This eliminates the risk of injury through jerky start stop motions.

Our Brooks Lincoln Stair lifts has limit sensors - These are fitted on the rail at the top and bottom and make sure that the stair lift always stops in the correct position on the staircase. The Brooks Stair lift has a soft stop and start feature, so at the end of every journey there will be no jolt.

Brooks Stair lift have a key to lock the lift off or on - This is particularly useful with children, as it prevents anyone from using or activating the stair lift in an unsafe manner.

Battery powered (DC) stair lifts - There is no mains power voltage on the stair lift itself, as they run off batteries of only 24 volts. There is no risk of receiving an electric shock when the stair lift is operating.

Brooks stair lift have both mechanical and electrical braking systems - This prevents the stair lift descending out of control, in the unlikely chance that there is a motor failure.

Brooks stair lift are equipped with a swivel seat that locks in position - A swivel seat turns and locks into position, allowing the stair lift user to dismount in safety both at the top and bottom of the stairs. A swivel seat also acts as a barrier, preventing the user from potentially falling back down the stairs.

All Brooks Stair lifts exceed the highest levels of the British Safety Standards, European Safety Directives, and US & Canada's regulations.
