Sterling Features

Toggle or Remote Control Operation
» Control of your Sterling stairlift can be effected either by use of a simple, user-friendly joystick located in the arm of your choice, or alternatively the stairlift can be controlled remotely by means of an infra-red hand-held transmitter that requires no unsightly control boxes or cables.

The Sterling stairlift contains electronic circuits to control the ride, this means that there is no jolting or lurching of the stairlift as it starts or ends its travel. This gives a smooth ride throughout, adding to the feeling of safety and stability.

Seat Swivel: Manual or Automatic

At the rotationof a lever, the easy-to-use swivel chair can be manoeuvred into the 45° or 85° position and back again. The essential Seat Offset Feature ensures a safe and easy access to and from the stairlift away from the top of the stairs.

The optional powered swivel chair is the ultimate choice for comfort and freedom of movement. At the touch of a switch, the user is able to move into the parked or swivelled position with total ease.

Touch Sensitive Safety Covers

As standard the Sterling 950 or 1000 comes complete with touch sensitive safety covers which are designed to prevent trapping hazards. Should the stairlift make contact with any obstruction on the stairwell, in either direction, movement of the covers will result in the immediate suspension of travel in that direction. The stairlift will still travel in the opposite direction to allow the obstruction to be removed.

Unique Charging System

The Sterling 950 and 1000 includes as standard its own unique continuous charging system. Unlike other battery operated stairlifts, the Sterling will remain on charge regardless of the park position, this means that if you want to leave the stairlift anywhere on the rail this does not present a problem, it also ensures that your stairlift is always charged and ready for use.

Electronic and Mechanical Braking Systems

The Sterling is fitted with electronic and mechanical fail-safe braking systems to ensure that an uncontrolled decent of the stairlift can not occur.

Visual Diagnostic Display

The Sterling has a digital diagnostic display mounted on the upper face of the unit. In the unlikely event of a fault occurring a simple telephone call to your stairlift provider can determine if an engineer call-out is necessary.

On the opposite side of the carraige from the visual diagnostic display is a rocker switch, this can be used to isolate the power supply to the lift, yet it will still allow the stairlift to accept charge.

Sterling External Stairlifts

Outdoor Stairlift Solutions
» If you are looking for a stairlift for outdoor use, we have an extensive range of products which can be easily adapted to suit your needs.

Sterling's outside stairlifts are suitable for stairs up to 56 degrees. The outdoor stairlifts have been installed from Canada to Mexico withstanding many types of weather environments. 

External Cover Coating Protection

» The Sterling External Stairlift range comes prefinished in an outdoor weather resistant-coating to help keep the look and finish of your stairlift longer.

Safety Features


Continuous Battery Charging With No Trailing Cables
» Sterling's continuous charging system eliminates troublesome trailing cables or rail end charging stations and ensures the stairlift is charged regardless of where it is parked. This is essential for long battery life (similar to your car) and low operational costs. The time and money saving "Plug & Ride" option overcomes the need for disruptive wiring by simply using a convenient power socket.

Diagnostics Display Panel

To allow a diagnostics without an engineer, Sterling has developed a time and money saying Self-Diagnostic System which can both identify and clearly display any fault which may occur, or report its operating condition.
