Handicare Sterling 1000


Handicare Sterling 1000 Stair Lift

When the Sterling 1000 was designed we considered not just how safe, easy and comfortable it would be to use but also how the lift would look in your home.

Thanks to extensive consultation with leading healthcare specialists the result was a lift that continues to exceed our customers’ expectations. Put simply, no other stairlift on the market offers as many exclusive features and options or looks as good as the Sterling. Whatever your needs Sterling has the stairlift for you. All Sterling seats are supplied with wipe clean, flame retardant upholstery in a choice of four colors. You can even replace upholstery later should you wish to change your color scheme. With a Sterling lift you can regain your independence with compromising your décor. The stylish aluminum track of the Sterling 1000 takes up but a few inches of your stairway. A Sterling hinged track will keep your track clear of doorways or other obstructions at the base of the stairs. This feature is available as a manual or remote controlled powered option. Folded up the Sterling 1000 takes up minimal room at the base of your stairs and its contemporary appearance will compliment any home.

  • Luxury seat: The ergonomically designed Luxury seat comes as standard on the Sterling 101 and 202. With a number of unique and thoughtful features the seat makes using the lift simple, safe, and comfortable. With a choice of upholstery colors it will also look good in your home. A Safety belt is fitted for users requiring more support and safety as they ride.
  • SpaceSaver™ seat: The unique Sterling SpaceSaver™ seat is designed for use on stairs that are narrow and/or where the user is particularly tall. The seat has more depth and can be fitted slightly closer to the wall but still offers the same great features and benefits of the Luxury seat.
  • Perch seat: If sitting and standing presents difficulty or a user has limited hip and knee flexion the Sterling perch seat enables the user to still enjoy the benefits of a Sterling lift. The user rides in a more upright position with the safety belt offering extra security if required.
