Key benefits

One step folding

Flip-up the arms or the seat and the footrest follows, folding flat for more space on your stairs.

Adjustable arms

At the point of installation, you can have the armrests of your Solus stairlift adjusted to size for extra comfort.

Easy to use swivel levers

Use the standard easy-to-operate manual swivel lever. Or for those with limited strength in their hands, the optional one or two-way powered swivel, to get off your stairlift in the safest position.

Safety edges

Safety sensors around the footrest and carriage automatically detect any obstruction on your stairs, bringing your Solus stairlift to a safe and gentle stop.

Seat safety sensor

A sensor within the seat ensures your stairlift won't move until you're safely settled in your chair.

Removable link bars

If you need side access from a wheelchair, the link bars can be removed, enabling you to move safely and easily onto the chair.

Upholstery options

Available in hard-wearing woven, supple leather or durable vinyl upholstery. Solus is available in a range of contemporary colours to beautifully blend with your home.

Adjustable seat height

Ensures your stairlift seat and footrest are perfectly positioned to your height.

Solus Detailed Specification


Straight stairs:
- Width: 342mm (folded), 654mm (unfolded)
- Seat height: 445mm (min), 515mm (max)

Curved stairs:
- Width: 405mm (folded), 679mm (unfolded)
- Seat height: 525mm

Maximum load

Straight stairs: Maximum one person up to 135kg
Curved stairs: Maximum one person up to 135kg

By code the stairlift is structurally strong enough to hold 5x that load, but should not be used to carry more than the load.

Power supply

Do we need to have a power supply or is it run off a battery?
Our stairlifts are battery powered, but we will require an outlet either at the top or bottom of the stairs to keep it charged. Our electricians will make sure it is in the best place prior to installation.

Safety features

- Seatbelt
- Optional Footrest fold button on the armrest - fold the footrest without bending over near the top of the stairs
- Seat load sensor to prevent the chair moving until the user is securely seated
- Safety edges to stop the chair if it touches an obstruction
- Key lock to prevent unwanted use
- On/Off switch
- Manual swivel seat to turn and face the top landing. Also available as a powered swivel upgrade.

Buying your Stannah stairlift is as easy as 1, 2, 3

1 Step 1

Call our friendly advisors & book a stairlift assessment

There’s absolutely no obligation or pressure to buy. The purpose of the visit is to enable our advisor to assess your staircase, make some suggestions about which stairlift is right for you and give you a firm quotation, which we’ll stick to.

2 Step 2

Place your order with your Stannah representative

Whenever you’re ready, just place your order and your stairlift will be installed at the earliest available date.

3 Step 3

Installation by trained and accredited technicians

Installation normally takes no longer than a few hours. When our installation technician leaves your house, it will be clean and tidy, exactly as they found it. With one exception of course. You’ll have your Stannah stairlift so your stairs will no longer be any kind of obstacle.
