Stairlifts - Minivator

Minivator are a Midlands based manufacturer of stairlifts. Formerly owned by the Sunrise Medical group, a recent management buy out saw the company take a more focused direction in the stairlift market place.

There are two models available, the Minivator 1000 for straight stairs and the Minivator 2000 for curved staircases. Both stair lifts are compliant with BS5776 and ISO9386-2.

The Minivator 2000 is now available with an internal bend as well as an external bend allowing the stairlift to be installed in the majority of homes with curved stairs. One of the major benefits of the Minivator 2000 is the speed of production. It is usually possible to have the lift installed within three weeks from the date that we order it. The lift is also much cheaper than many of its curved stair rivals making it a serious conteder to the Stannah 260 which is widely thought to be the best curved stair lift on the market. Whether it can consistently match the 260 reliability wise remains to be seen, but they are certainly moving towards that.

The Minivator 1000 is a slimline stairlift with all of the usual options that you'd expect from a straight stairlift. One of the best features, which is unique to the Minivator product, is the excellent toggle switch control. People with limited mobility or with painful conditions such as arthritis find it much easier to us the Minivator toggle.

New Bison Bede Curved Stair Lift

We're fairly excited about the new Bison Curved stair lift and we await with interest the reliability tests from the many lifts that are currently in test homes. If its as good as we think it is, we expect to start offering the lift to some of our local authority clients in the coming months.

The Bison 80 Stairlift represents a major step forward in comfort and reliability. Using the latest technology and Bison's modular rail concept, the Bison 80 has been developed to accommodate virtually all curved staircases.

Engineering excellence ensures the Bison 80 Stairlift provides a smooth and comfortable ride along a continuous slim and attractively finished rail on either the inner or outer curvature of your staircase.

The slim, stylish, yet robust design allows for plenty of access even on narrow stairs and has been designed to be a piece of modern furniture, to ensure it blends subtly into your home.

Designed with ease of use and comfort in mind, The Bison 80 is operated using a rocker switch located on the armrest. Additional radio frequency remotes can also be provided to allow the lift to be remotely called.

The unique self leveling transport system moves the carriage along the single low profile rail and automatically adjusts the speed and level of the seat on cornering, providing an exceptionally smooth ride. The system's electronic programming ensures excellent operational performance.

The Bison 80 is battery powered, making it quiet and smooth in operation and providing additional peace of mind in the event of a power cut.

The footrest of the Bison 80 is extremely close to the ground floor level and has no step, also it ends level with the top stair nose, giving easy access to the landing.

When not in use the Bison 80 stairlift with its slim profile design can be easily folded away and also has an unique inside parking capability, ensuring the stairway is not obstructed for use by other members of the household.
