External Stairlifts for Prairie Weather

For those unique situations where it’s not possible to install a Vertical Platform Lift (VPL) – also called a Porchlift or Wheelchair Lift – an alternative to consider is an outdoor chair lift for stairs.

Handicare offers great external stairlifts to handle the weather in Western Canada. They are fitted with specialized sealed coated PCBs (printed circuit boards.) In addition to the wild swings in temperature, humidity is a critical issue especially for dry cold that causes static electricity shocks.

 

Our customers have successfully relied on these products throughout the years.
We recommend covering the seat and carriage when they are not in use and locking and removing the security key. Clearing the staircase from snow is important and if possible, covering the rail is ideal.

The Handicare 2000 stair lift is particularly well suited as a stairlift for narrow stairs or have tight corners. It is manufactured from durable, weather-resistant materials for installation indoors or outside as an external stairlift. Perfect for front walkways, porches or decks, the 2000 outdoor unit helps you get back to enjoying Mother Nature.The Handicare 2000 stair lift is particularly well suited as a stairlift for narrow stairs or have tight corners.

Handicare 2000 Continuous Rail External Stair Lift

Stair Lift Features: 

  • Weight limit: 250lbs (300lbs with heavy duty kit)
  • Multiple charging points (DC plug-in power) with battery backup in the event of power outage
  • Safety sensors immediately stop the lift if anything is detected in its path
  • Adjustable seat height ensures a perfect fit
  • Move silently and gently with a soft start/stop
  • Key switch prevents unauthorized use
  • Large, carpeted footrest for more traction
  • Manual emergency stop
  • Two remote controls
  • Retractable seatbelt or body harness for those who require extra support and stability as they ride the stairlift
  • Powered Hinged Track: the track can be folded away from the doorway, giving clear access to accommodate a door or opening
  • Powered Footrest: with the touch of a button, the footrest automatically folds up. Whether you have difficulty bending or plan to park near the top of the stairs, this safety feature prevents you from manually folding the footrest or keeping it unfolded and causing a potential tripping hazard.
  • Powered Swivel Seat: by simply holding the toggle control toward the landing when you arrive, the seat swivels so you face the landing so you’re exiting toward it rather than getting off the lift sideways.
  • Many styles: There are many chair styles, seat colours and rail colours to choose from

In addition to the standard features and benefits of our 1000 straight stairlift, the 1000 Outdoor is fully waterproofed and specially designed for outside staircases. Install it wherever you need to access a front walkway, porch, deck or garden.
