Platinum Horizon Overview

The Platinum Horizon Straight stairlift is one of the most advanced straight stairlifts available on the market.  Its unique ‘slim fit’ design incorporates a range of exciting new features as standard including a revolutionary Ergo chair, manual lever linked footrest raiser and a powered swivel.  The product has been ‘universally’ designed to suit both right and left handed persons, and comes with a fully adjustable seat to footrest height.  It fits stairs up to 62 degrees and is easy to install.

The quality, safety, comfort and reliability of all Platinum stairlifts are made to the highest standards. Once each product has gone through a number of rigorous safety checks, they are delivered with a personalised signed certificate of quality to assure you that the stairlift provided is of the highest quality that can be offered. All stairlifts are tested in the factory to ensure optimum efficiency and are then delivered with a personalised signed certificate of quality.

Platinum’s stairlifts are made using aluminium rails; the same metal used to make cars, making the stairlifts strong and secure yet light, which allows the chair to move smoothly. Aluminium is also a natural resource meaning it won’t rust, which protects against spillages. Another feature of the stairlift is that it includes a seat belt for added safety and security. Although the stairlifts are incredibly safe, having a seat belt gives the user piece of mind, allowing them to feel more comfortable and secure.

The stairlift comes with a powered swivel chair, which allows the user to automatically turn the chair at the top or bottom of the stairs. This ensures it is as easy as possible to get on and off the chair, even if another item of furniture is in the way.
It also includes a linked foot rest raiser which not only allows the user to pick their perfect position but be able to control it without having to adjust it by hand. In addition to the foot rest all stairlifts also come with arm rests for comfort, as well as safety.

For comfort the stairlifts also have a fully adjustable chair which maximises the comfort and ride quality, allowing the user to feel at ease when moving up and down the stairs.
Other features include a hand held remote control which not only controls allows you to stop and start the stairlift but also allows you to call it to you. Alongside this it also has a control lever, which is ergonomically designed to make the lift easy and effortless.

All stairlifts are not the same!

The first thing to remember is that all stair lifts were not created equal! Although there is an ever growing demand for stair lift equipment, it is truly amazing how many out dated products are being installed in peoples homes throughout theUK. This old technology equipment can be troublesome for the user - why? - because it's unreliable. Things have moved on since the days of chain drives and trailing cables.

Modern stair lifts, like the Platinum Horizon Stair Lift, are state of the art, in terms of design and manufacture, yet are so simple to install and maintain.

As with most things - there is a baffling amount of choice out there in the marketplace. When choosing a piece of equipment like a stair lift, it is important to ensure that you are making like-for-like comparisons. Think carefully when buying this type of product via the internet. Your first real opportunity to clearly see the features, engineering (and limitations) of your new stair lift, are when it arrives on your doorstep.
