Domestic lifts manufacturer Stiltz Lifts unveiled its new Stiltz Trio+ HomeLift to dealers at its first-ever trade product launch last week.
The Stiltz Trio+ HomeLift has been designed to take a full-sized wheelchair or up to three people. The modern design encompasses both practicality and style, to give a contemporary, elegant look.
The new Trio lift will fully comply with BS 5900:2012 powered homelifts along with BS EN 81-41 accreditation. There is the option of an automatic door available to allow for ease of entering and exiting the lift car and a gently-angled ramp for easier wheelchair level access.
The car body has also been specifically designed for wheelchair users with wider entry and exit points. The overall footprint is just 1040mm x 1378mm.
The Trio+ will enable trade dealers to offer the product to the consumer market, local authority and disabled facilities grant-funded lifts, the latter two according to figures from the Lift & Escalator Industry Association (LEIA), provide funding for around 2,000 wheelchair lifts per year.
The company claims that, like all Stiltz HomeLifts, the new product can be installed in less than a day with no load bearing walls or hydraulics required.
The lift plugs straight into a normal domestic power socket using minimal power as it travels quietly between floors on self-supporting rails which are discreetly recessed between the slightly wider entrance/exit.
The car of the Trio+ is designed in a stylish aluminium casing with a clear body, which helps it blend seamlessly into customers’ homes. The more compact Stiltz Duo+ HomeLift also showcased at the launch event, shares the same new aluminium coating.
Chairman and chief executive officer of Stiltz Group, Mike Lord, says the new products offer potential trade partners huge opportunities to make their businesses more profitable with free installation training also available at its headquarters in Kingswinford, West Midlands.
Lord said: “I would like to thank all the trade dealers who attended our first-ever product launch. We hope now they have seen the new products they understand why we were so thrilled to be showcasing our unique range of home lifts to them.
“We look forward to working with them in making potential customers aware of what a life changing solution the new Trio+ can be for wheelchair users, while the new, compact and elegant Duo+ can help customers remain more independent and live a full life in the home they love.
