Platinum Horizon Straight Stairlift

The Platinum Horizon Straight Stairlift features a classic design & is highly reliable. It is very user friendly and comfortable to use. When installing your stairlift, we will adjust the seat, armrests, backrest and footplate to suit the user. The Horizon Stairlift is controlled by an ergonomic joystick mounted on one of the arms.

The single rail is mounted to your stairs, not the wall. This means installation is quick and does not impact on your homes decor. Powerful rechargeable batteries supply the power to the Horizon Stairlift.  Always leave your Platinum Horizon Stairlift on one of the Park points when you are not using it so it charges from the mains supply. This means you can even use the Horizon straight stairlift during a power cut.

Customer Reviews for the Platinum Horizon Stairlift:

I am always amazed at the service Obam give.

When the stairlift was fitted two years ago I was impressed with the way the job was done, today was service, the engineer arrived an hour early, lovely guy, got on with the job and replaced the step.

Nothing is too much trouble.

Rare these days to get an excellent service.

Thank you and thank you to Simon in the office who arranged it all.

    A lot of companies boast a 24/7 service and maintenance offering, but few actually deliver. I can honestly say that Obam do that and we had our stairlift back up and running within hours of calling them
