In situations where the stairlift track might obstruct a doorway or
passageway such as at the foot of the stairway, a folding (hinged)
section of the track may be supplied as an option. An ingenious design
places all of the required moving components neatly and unobtrusively
within the folding section of rail.
This not only ensures an easy-to-clean, sleek and slender design,
but also safety by eliminating any external moving parts. The track
is available in two options:
The manual Hinge Track is an easy-to-use, counterbalanced, folding
section of track that can be positioned by hand to either operational
(down) or folded (up) position.
Powered Hinge Track
The automatic, electrically-powered folding hinge track is the ultimate
in ease of use. This powered version allows the track to fold up automatically
as you ascend the stairs, and then automatically fold down into the
operational position as you descend the stairs.
