Platinum stairlifts are made in Yorkshire and although a relative newcomer to the stairlft market the company has already established a name for itself in the UK, Europe and the USA.
Powered by two maintenance free batteries, the Platinum Horizon lift recharges when not in use and comes in a choice of colours to compliment your home. Innovative design features
The lift is operarated by an ergonomically designed joystick which is bright red and easy to locate and use. A smooth start and stop ensures the ride is comfortable.
The sear may be adjusted to suit different people, with both the height and width of the armrests capable of adjustment. In addition there are a number of different colour choices available.
Readable Text display
Rather than using 'error' codes to make you aware of what the lift is doing, this lift has a display in the armrest which you can read.
During a service visit the engineer may use the display to collect information from the lift about how often it has been used and how many times safety features have been activated since the last service. This can help in giving advice on how to use the lift safely.
An audible alarm sounds if the lift is accidentally switched off or incorrectly parked. The same alarm alerts the user to when the power swivel seat is going to move.
