Is a stairlift safe if my children or grandchildren visit me?
A stairlift is fitted with a key lock as standard. You can lock the stairlift when not in use, preventing other people from using it and avoiding unauthorised use. Please note that Handicare Stairlifts is the only supplier on the market that protects the potentially sharp gear rack on the track using a steel strip. Moreover, the gear rack is located on the bottom of the track, not the top, as is the case with nearly all other manufacturers. This is an especially important factor with children, as they often use the track as a hand rail.
