Stannah describe this product as their mosy elegant design, with upholstered option and a choice between dark or light wood trim.
Siena, the best selling Stannah stairlift can be fitted to straight, modular curved or bespoke curved rails. Another feature that make them so popular is their range of five classic colours to select from. Safety is paramount in the design, with seat belt as standard and sensors that stop the chair from moving if an obstacle is detected.
The Sadler model has a very different design to standard stairlifts, as it provides a saddle type seat rather than a flat chair. It has been developed for people with limited flexibility, helping them to maintain a more upright posture. It is available in two different heights to suit people with different heights.
