Product Description


Modern looks to match your home

The Solus blends beautifully into your home with its stylish seat, smart looks and a range of 18 fabrics to choose from, made from leather, woven or vinyl to suit a home of any style. Choose from the traditional colours available or select one of the new contemporary European inspired fabrics from the Stannah Collection which features bold designs to make a statement piece in any home.

The Solus is straightforward to use and extremely practical. Just take a seat in the supportive, comfortable seat, place the easy-to-use seatbelt and use the controls gently to glide yourself up and down the stairs, there is nothing simpler than that.

Safe and easy to use

The Solus is designed with safety and easy of use. Your Solus stairlift has a seat-safety sensor that ensures it doesn’t move until after you are comfortably seated. It also locks using a built-in control key feature, to keep it safe from young children. The chair can also be folded flat using the one-step fold-away function, to offer extra space on the stairs. If you have limited strength in your hands, this stairlift offers an optional one or two-way powered swivel seat, which allows you to turn and face the landing or hall to exit your Solus more easily. 

Dimensions & Measurements

The benefits and features are listed below that are common to the Stannah Solus for straight stairs.

1. Comfortable Chair The solus offers complete comfort, with a cushioned back and upholstered, generously padded seat.
2. Adjustable arms The arm rests on the Solus can both be adjusted to fit you perfectly.
3. One-step folding Flip up the Solus seat and arms and the footrest follows. This folds flat to maximise the space left on your stairs.
4. Seatbelt For added reassurance, you can fasten the retractable seatbelt with just one hand. The seatbelt is optional and does not need to be clipped in to operate the stairlift.
5. Easy-to-use swivel levers Use the levers, or optional automatic one or two-way swivel, to get off your stairlift in the safest position at the top or bottom of the stairs 
6. Safety edges Several sensors detect obstructions automatically and bring your Solus to a prompt, yet gentle stop.
7. Stylish Upholstery Choose from vinyl, leather or hard-wearing woven upholstery in a choice of contemporary colours to match your homes décor.
8. Easy-to-use control pod To move your stairlift, gently move the control pod. The pod also has a red light for visibility and a key to lock your stairlift.
9. Removeable link bars If side access is required, these side bars can be removed to make moving in and out of the seat easy and safe.
10. Seat safety sensor An smart sensor within the seat ensures your chair won’t move until you’re safely seated and read to go.
