In order for the seat to get low enough for the user to sit on, it is necessary for the track to extend beyond the staircase to the lower floor level. Or in some cases, there may be a doorway close to the bottom of the stairs and the track may intrude across this. In these circumstances the Easy Hinge should be installed. This means that the track will be folded away from the doorway giving clear access.
The Easy Hinge rail allows for the bottom portion of the rail to be lifted up out of the way of any doorways or passageways when the stairlift is not in use. The Easy Hinge has a built-in gas spring, designed to make manual operation as easy as possible.
Available for the Handicare 1100 stairlift.
