Product Description

Sterling Simplicity Stair Lift

Available For Install and Delivery in Edmonton Area Only!

Looking for a safe economy stairlift?

If you are looking for an economy stairlift, the Sterling Simplicity is the one for you. The Sterling Simplicity saves you money on your initial outlay, without any detriment to safety.

Benefits of the Simplicity

The joystick was designed in consultation with occupational therapists, which makes the stairlift easy to use, even for users with joint problems, for example rheumatism.  

The seat on the Simplicity is finished in wipe clean sand-coloured upholstery. For your safety, the Sterling Simplicity comes with a seat belt as standard.

What functions does the Simplicity have?

Continuous charging function
A benefit of the Simplicity is its continuous charging function. The stairlift does not have to be parked at a designated charge point - the lift is charged along the entire length of the track, so you can go upstairs or downstairs as you wish!

Hinged track
The hinged track is ideal for situations where the stairlift track might obstruct other passages in your home. This can happen where, for example, a doorway in the hall is adjacent to the stairs. The bottom hinged section of the track can be manually folded out of the way, keeping the walking zone around the stairs clear and allowing people to move around freely.

Slide track
Only available from Handicare, the Slide Track is an ingenious system - the sliding track is slightly shorter than the stair length. The track moves with you as you travel up or down the stairs on the stairlift and reaches its end point before you get to the top or bottom of the stairs. This makes it safer to get off. This option is especially useful where both the top and bottom of the stairs are potentially obstructed by the track.

What are the major features of the Simplicity?

  • Inexpensive and safe. 
  • Hinged track or sliding track if required
  • Automatic footplate available as optional extra
  • Continuous charging
  • Maximum load 140 kg. If you choose a sliding track this is reduced to 120kg

  1. Discount Stair Lifts Still Got It 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jul 2013

    I didn't look at anything other than discount stair lifts. I wanted a chair that could climb stairs. Something I could sit in without falling out or tiring myself out. That's what I got this. When they call it "Sterling Simplicity," they mean it. Simple, effective, gets me up the stairs. What more could I ask for?

  2. Discount Stair Lifts Are Exactly What I Wanted 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2013

    I knew when I was looking at discount stair lifts that I wanted something to get me up the stairs and back, not a throne. That practical efficiency is what I found in the Sterling Simplicity. The lift doesn't look impressive, and it doesn't have the fancy diagnostics or flashing lights of other lifts, but it does its work without complaint. It's a very quiet machine, and it charges itself. I don't even have to touch it except to ride it. This is my idea of a good tool.

  3. Discount Stair Lifts Don't Mess Around 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2013

    All I wanted out of discount stair lifts was something that would get me up and down the stairs without hassle. I didn't want to have to set controls, or fiddle with settings, or do anything but sit and climb. The Simplicity is pretty much exactly what I was looking for. It doesn't compromise on what matters: weight capacity, a constantly charged battery, and ease of use. You can even fold up the track out of the way, a convenient but not too fancy feature.

  4. Discount Stair Lifts are Simple and Reliable 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2013

    I was looking for discount stair lifts that would give me mobility without breaking the bank, and here I've found one. I wanted something that would just take me up and down, no bells and whistles, but this one actually has some useful features. I have a cramped house, so I was impressed that the track can fold up to save space. Plus, I used to worry that I might get stranded on the stairs if a lift's battery wore out, but this chair recharges all the time, so I don't have to worry any more.

  5. Discount Stair Lifts for Any User 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th May 2013

    I like these discount stair lifts mainly for their accessible price. They don't have all the bells and whistles, but they work reliably, which is what's really important. Everyone deserves to be able to access their own house.

  6. No Frills Discount Stair Lifts 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2013

    These discount stair lifts won't win any awards for comfort or flashy looks, but they help get up and down the stairs without fear or achy bones. The chair is really easy to control and easily supports my weight. Like I said, it doesn't look great, but I don't really care as long as it works, and it does.
