The Summit Indoor Stair Lift from Harmar is a great solution when walking up and down your indoor stairs is no longer an option. With a cable-operated system that uses steel aircraft cable rated at 4,200 pounds breaking strength, you are guaranteed a smooth and safe ride. And quick too at a speed of 20 feet per minute. This classic American made lift is rated to carry 350 pounds. We have sold thousands of these for use in homes, churches, offices and more. The best thing about the Summit is that it ships to you about 90% of the way complete. Which means that you have very little to do regarding the installation!
One of the features of this unit that separates it from its competitors is that the seat swivels a full 90 degrees at the top and the bottom of the lift, this allows for safe entry and exit of the stairlift. It also has safety sensors on each side of the footplate which stops the lift if there are any obstructions on the track. And call/send stations both at the top and bottom of the unit makes it convenient no matter where you need it.
Measuring Overview and Guide
When installing a stair lift, the key is to begin with proper measurements. It really is very easy to measure for a stairlift. All you need is a tape measure. Take a general overview of your stairway layout and decide which side of the staircase the stairlift will be mounted on, when viewed from the bottom. The lift may be mounted on the banister side if desired. No wall is necessary as the stairlift mounts to the stair treads, not a wall. Be aware that the stairlift rail will overhang the top landing by approximately 6″ and meet the floor at the foot of the stairs approximately 14″ beyond the nose of the first step.
