Space-saving platform lift design

A compact design is one of our guiding principles at Direct Lifts. The slim form of our lifts combined with a folding platform ensures your staircase remains free of obstructions.

Practical handrail

The lift is guided along two parallel rails by a set of rollers, whereby only the lower rail, equipped with teeth is intended for the rack and pinion drive. This allows unimpeded access to the upper rail, which can be put to good use as a handrail.

Comfortable operation

The smooth start and stop performance ensure that travel is a pleasant experience; our lifts are low-maintenance and their reliability has been proven in everyday life. The operation of the lift is completely battery-operated; the batteries are recharged at the final stations. The lift will automatically switch off after a period of time without use in order to prevent a deep discharge occurring if it has not been properly parked.

wheelchair lift platform

Automated platform & safety bars

The compact drive system allows for a sleek slimline design (Only 255mm thick when folded).

Rechargeable battery powered operation guarantees the constant availability of the lift in the case of a power outage. It also allows for additional electrical safety with an Extra Low Voltage 24vDC system.

Secure and vandal proof

Secure & vandal resistant

The onboard controls are concealed by the folded platform which is highly effective in preventing unauthorised use. Each landing will feature a wall mounted pad with 4x buttons to control the lift. In standard form, each pad has a key to enable the buttons to be used.

A key advantage of the Ascendor model over others on the market is that the safety arms fold away within the platform which will avoid possible service issues that other models on the market may encounter with vandalism.

wheelchair lift railings

Double function stainless steel handrail

The high-quality 304 stainless is utilised to serve the lift as well as a clean handrail.

If preferred we can also include horizontal or curved rail ends.

safety panels for wheelchair lift

Safety panels

To increase protection from falling objects or people accidentally reaching through the drive rails, we can offer safety panels designed to fit between the rail supports. Panels can be either glass or any other solid panel.

Stainless steel finish

The lift carriage can be produced in a range of stainless types and materials as well as the option to be powdercoated in any RAL colour.

Unfortunately, we cannot give you an immediate answer to this question as the price of a stairlift depends on several factors:

– Is the staircase straight or curved?
– Can the platform be mounted directly onto the wall or will additional support brackets be required?
– Are special construction arrangements necessary to install the lift?
– Do you want to request a special colour finish?

As you can see, the final price of a platform stair lift is dependent on many outside factors and the customers personal wishes.
Please give us enough information regarding your requirements and the finished appearance of your stair lift and we will gladly send you a quotation, free of charge and without obligation!

We can answer this question with a resounding “Yes!”
Our platform stair lifts can be adapted to suit the requirements of electric wheelchair users and can be equipped to carry a heavier payload.

Yes! Our stairlifts can be installed on straight and curved staircases, the space available is the determining factor here.
In order to clarify whether or not it is possible to install our platform stair lift, please get in contact with us.

The delivery time will depend on whether the lift will be fitted onto a straight or curved staircase. For accurate delivery and installation time call us at 1300 134 011

How much time does the installation of the stairlift require?
The duration of the installation will depend on the length of the staircase i.e. the length of the transport rails required and how they need to be fitted (directly onto the wall or with support stanchions) and the how many floors the building has. As a general guideline, you should reckon with an assembly time of approximately one day (8 hours) per storey.

The standard colour of our Ascendor Platform Stairlift is metallic-silver, similar to RAL 9006. A non-standard finish can be delivered on request*, you can choose from a wide variety of RAL-colours. We can also provide our stairlift in an attractive stainless steel finish.

Of course this is possible. In many cases, especially in public buildings it may be advantageous to order a platform lift with a folding seat. This allows people with reduced mobility who are nonetheless not wheelchair bound to surmount staircases and provides extra comfort during travel.

Sometimes a change in medical condition means a stair lift becomes essential. Following consultation with a specialist, you should consider fitting a platform lift if you are; or might become dependent on a wheelchair in the future.

The power supply for the lift is provided by a standard electrical socket. The socket must be situated at the upper or lower end of the drive rail. Four maintenance-free, batteries are integrated into the lift chassis (an additional four can be fitted on request*). The batteries are automatically recharged when the lift is stationary at one of its landing stations.


What will happen if a power failure occurs?
There is no need to worry! Thanks to the integrated batteries fitted into the lift it can continue to operate even in the event of a power failure and travel between floors and stations without restriction.

How is the lift controlled?
The lift can be operated either directly at the control panel which is fitted onto the lift or by a handheld wireless remote control which can be conveniently carried in a pocket. This is the ideal solution for private owners. For public buildings, we recommend the installation of wall-mounted operating units on every landing. The lift can be summoned via these controls and the operating units can be locked with a key and thus are safe from unauthorised use.

Yes, our platform stair lifts are available for outdoor installation and are equipped with an additional cover to protect the drive unit from rain.

How is the platform stair lift driven?
The platform stair lift is driven by a reliable and maintenance-free toothed rack and spur gear. Please note that the toothed rack is only fitted to the lower rail. This ensures that the upper rail is free from grease and dirt and can therefore be used as a handrail.


Yes, the lift can be conveniently stowed away by simply pressing the keys on the handheld wireless transmitter or on the wall-mounted operation unit. When folded away the platform saves space: it only requires a width of 25 cm for straight staircases and 31 cm for curved staircases.
