Comfort and Convenience

A perfect blend of comfort and support, the new moulded seat on the HomeGlide has been designed by ergonomic experts. The generous padding provides a firm yet comfortable seating experience, while its deeper and wider design accommodates a variety of body types.

The warm grey upholstery of this chair boasts a modern and neutral tone that can seamlessly blend into any household décor. As well as being fire retardant and liquid repellent, the upholstery is easy to clean, making it both practical and stylish. The lift is also equipped with an integrated joystick that is easy to use and boasts a soft-touch grip for maximum comfort.

When not in use, the armrests, seat and footrest can be folded away, saving space on the stairs and a creating a clear path for other stair users in the home.

The chair is designed to glide effortlessly along an aluminium track which is fitted to the stairs, not the wall. With the ability to fit almost all straight staircases as narrow as 74cm (29”) and with a maximum weight capacity of 25st (160kg)*, it’s a reliable and versatile solution for your mobility needs.

The HomeGlide stairlift, like most other stairlifts on the market, is powered by batteries. As long as the user keeps the stairlift parked in its charging spot when not in use, they can rest assured that it will be ready for use whenever they need it. This feature provides peace of mind for users, ensuring that they are never left stranded on the stairs due to a power failure.

The lift is supplied with two remote control handsets for added convenience. With the touch of a button, you can easily call or send your stairlift up and down the stairs. Park it at the top or bottom of the staircase, whichever suits your needs best.

For stairs with obstructions at the bottom, you can choose to have the HomeGlide supplied with an automatically powered folding hinge rail. This feature allows the lower section of the rail to fold away once you have used the lift, leaving the bottom of your staircase clear and ensuring that you can easily access your stairway without any obstructions or safety hazards.

Safety Features

Safety is at the forefront of this innovative stairlift. The lift is fitted with an emergency stop button that ensures users are always in control and can safely stop the lift in the event of an emergency.

The seat is fitted with a retractable seatbelt. With just one hand, users can easily operate the belt, ensuring maximum safety without any hassle. An integrated sensor guarantees that the lift will only move when the seatbelt is fastened, providing a secure and reliable experience for all.

Equipped with special safety edges on the drive unit and footrest, the HomeGlide is designed to come to a safe stop if it senses something is blocking its path. This feature ensures that users are protected from potential accidents and injuries while using the stairlift.

In addition, if the stairlift is not parked in its charging position or if the power supply has been unplugged or disconnected, it will emit fast beeps that repeat every ten seconds.

Stairlifts are designed with a safe speed of 0.1 meters per second, ensuring a smooth and steady ride. With the average staircase length being 4.1 meters, you can expect a one-way trip to take approximately 41 seconds. This speed has been carefully researched and tested to ensure it strikes the perfect balance between convenience and safety, providing peace of mind for all stairlift users.

The Homeglide stairlift has been tested rigorously and meets all necessary safety standards (certified to machine directive 2006/42/EC, EN 81-40:2020 and UKCA standards), so you can rest assured that your loved ones are safe when using it. It’s easy to install, operate, and maintain – making sure you get many years of reliable service from this quality product.

HomeGlide Extra

The standard HomeGlide stairlift is already packed with amazing features, but if you require even more functionality and design, the HomeGlide Extra package has got you covered. Here are some additional features and benefits that come with it:

  • Powered swivel seat:
    Automatically turns the chair at the top landing as you maintain pressure on the joystick, enabling a safe exit from the chair as the lift automatically rotates towards the staircase landing. An ideal feature for people with limited upper body dexterity.
  • Adjustable Seat Height:
    With the HomeGlide Extra package the user can enjoy the freedom to choose from four different seat heights. This customisable solution ensures that you get the most suitable seating position possible, tailored specifically to your needs.
  • Integrated call device feature:
    Store up to three different telephone numbers, contactable directly from your stairlift. In case of an emergency or if assistance is needed, users can easily contact their loved ones by simply pressing the alarm button on the armrest. This feature provides added peace of mind for users and their families, especially for those who live alone.
  • Keylock:
    Prevent unauthorized or accidental use of your HomeGlide stairlift by isolating it to specific people. This is particularly useful when curious grandchildren visit or if your lift is used in a public setting.
  • Linked Footrest:
    The footrest is linked to the seat, eliminating the need to bend down fold the footrest up or down. A linked footrest would benefit any individual with limited mobility or condition that affects their balance or the ability to bend down.
