Five Helpful Tips to Consider in Your Stair Lift Purchasing Decision:
Big Value Comes in Compact Packages?
Rail Profile - Every brand differs in the design of the stair lift. Some are more vertically oriented and save space at the cost of extending upward 8" to 17" above the step. Others have a lower profile, but extend further from the wall. Inches from Wall - Code requires 20" of clearance from a folded stair lift to the wall it faces so that others can pass by. Harmar has the most compact stair lift at 10.5" folded width and mounts as close as 1/2" from the wall. It fits in narrower staircases while meeting code and gives you even more room and the feeling of a wider staircase.
Weight Your Options Carefully
Many stair lifts on the market have a weight cap of 265 to 300 lbs. While that is enough for some, the user needs to consider the following: Are you carrying a box or a pet? Is it possible you will gain weight? Is it possible someone else may need to use the lift? Do you want extra peace of mind as to the lift's extra capacity? In many cases, lighter weight lifts just are not enough. Harmar's SL600 and SL600HD boast 350 lb. - 600 lb. capacity - 15% to 100% more than most competitors.
Maintain Your Sanity
Many stair lifts on the market require annual track lubrication, which can be quite messy. Most consumers using a stair lift probably cannot perform the maintenance tasks of lubricating the gear rack. Harmar's Pinnacle is the only stair lift that does not require lubrication due to its nylon polymer gear rack and worm gear. No mess, no fuss, no expensive service contracts.
Understanding the Total Cost
The pricing for stair lifts in the market place vary. Make sure to take into account all factors when comparing prices. Ask about energy costs, how many cycles the stair lift will provide during a power outage, regular maintenance costs, etc. These should factor into your decision making. Harmar's Pinnacle saves 66% more energy costs than other brands. It also offers 40-60 cycles if the power goes out. Consider the lower overall cost of ownership, and peace of mind.
Who? What? Where?
