General Details

Factors to Consider

It is recommended that prior to prescribing a stairlift, that a supplier is called upon to review the property to ensure that a stairlift can be installed in the position as requested.

Extra product information

• The rail, of 190 mm width, for the stairlift runs up one side of the staircase and is attached to the floor
• The system can be mounted on either side of the staircase at the time of of installation
• Power is provided by two 12 volt gel-cell batteries, continuously charged by a 24 volt battery charger - battery powered operation ensures that that access is available even when there is an interruption in the electrical service
• The stairlift utilizes a soft-start electronic controller which can adjust the speed of the stairlift according to the weight of the passenger

• The stairlift is operated by push button control at the front of one of the armrests
• The chair consists of a padded, upholstered seat and backrest (dual density foam) and has a foot platform
• The chair swivels and locks at 90 degrees, operated by pulling a lever at the side of the chair, allowing easier access
• When not in use the seat base, armrests and foot platform may be folded upwards to create more space for other stair traffic

Installation

In the ACT, the Scaffolding and Lifts Regulation 1950 requires the installer of the lift (the Lift Company) to submit a 'Notice of Intention to Erect or Alter a Lift'. This applies to all lifts including service lifts and disabled access lifts. All lifts that are installed in the ACT need to comply with the current Lift Code of Australia.

Once the lift is erected, the lift company will contact Worksafe to arrange a "pre-commissioning inspection and test " on the lift (both new and upgraded). Worksafe charges an initiation fee of $44 plus $29 per hour for this service. (This fee is revised regularly). There is no requirement for the owner to arrange an annual inspection. For more information, contact ACT Worksafe on 6205 0200.
