Folding your stairlift up:
Maximise free space by folding the stairlift up
The footplate and seat can be folded up to increase available space leaving the staircase as clear as possible for other users.
Lifted and lowered by hand, manual footplates are fitted with an easy fold mechanism that minimizes the strength required to fold the footplate up or down.
Our Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Vermeer stairlifts can be supplied with our special Footrest Linkage system. This function enables you to fold away the footrest in one smooth and simple action without bending down. Create more room on the stairs with a single motion.
If you choose the powered footplate option it will remove the need for you to bend down to fold or unfold the footplate. You can choose to have a footplate that folds automatically when the seat is folded and unfolded, or that is operated separately to the seat by a switch in the seat arm so you can raise and lower the footplate whilst seated.
