Sterling - Handicare Stairlifts, Porchlifts, and Bath Lifts

Welcome to Sterling Stairlifts from Handicare

Welcome to the Sterling Stairlifts and Minivator bathlift ranges from Handicare, a company specializing in offering solutions and support to increase the independence of disabled or elderly people as well as to improve the convenience of those who are caring for them.  If you are thinking about purchasing a Stairlift, Porch Lift or Bath Lift we hope this site will be a help to you.


Using a stairlift

Unless you know someone who is already benefitting from using a stairlift you may be a little unsure of what is involved in owning and using a stairlift.

It is a popular misconception that stairlifts are fixed to the wall. This is rarely the case with domestic stairlifts which are usually fitted directly on to the staircase itself.

A stairlift has three basic components. Firstly, a track is fitted to your stairs and a power pack (the drive unit) is fitted to the track.  This is the unit that will travel along the track.  Then the seat that most suits your needs is fitted to the power pack.

All stairlifts are operated by a switch or toggle that is held in the direction of travel to make the lift move. When it is released the lift will stop moving.

All Sterling Stairlifts are battery powered meaning they can still be used during a power outage.

While stairlifts are very simple to use they are mechanical devices and do require annual servicing and maintenance.

Don't ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.

Robert Frost (1874-1963)


It is important that SNT check your staircase before your stairlift is supplied.

Before placing an order for a stairlift you should ensure the staircase has been assessed to make sure it is suitable for the stairlift you have chosen. It is rare that a stairlift cannot be fitted to a staircase but some systems may have limitations that mean they are not suitable for your home. 

You do not need to worry about surveying your staircase.  Your Authorized Sterling supplier, SNT will do this for you. They will advise you of any adjustments required to fit your stairlift (e.g. move a heater) and which is the best side of your staircase to fit your stairlift.

Most staircase surveys are very quick and easy to perform. If your staircase is more complex with intermediate landings, fan stairs or a spiral for example, the survey may be conducted quickly with Sterling's eSurvey system. Sterling curved stairlift tracks are designed to suit your individual staircase so it is important the staircase is measured accurately to ensure your track is the best possible fit for you and your staircase.

Most Sterling dealers, like SNT, use the eSurvey system for surveying curved staircases. This specially developed electronic system maximises the accuracy of a curved staircase survey whilst minimizing the time needed to carry it out.

Cards are placed on and around the stairs and photographed. Our specialist software measures these images to create an accurate 3D model of your staircase so the track is designed to fit your staircase perfectly.


Sterling Stairlifts offer a safe and reliable way of overcoming the problem of getting up and down stairs.

If you have difficulty getting up and down stairs you are not alone. Every year thousands of people look for a solution to the problems posed by the staircase in their home.

The decision to install a stairlift is sometimes a difficult one to take but when compared with the alternative of moving house, or living on one level of their house, many people have found a stairlift to be their much preferred option.

The idea of selecting a stairlift and having it fitted may be daunting at first; however stairlifts can usually be fitted in a couple of hours.

If you would like us to send you a copy of our Sterling Stairlifts Guide please click here. It has been designed to help explain what you need to think about when choosing your any stairlift. We hope it will make choosing the Sterling stairlift that is right for your needs both now and in the future much easier.



Choosing a stairlift to suit your home

Stairlift tracks fall into two basic categories: straight and curved; here's how to decide which type you need for your staircase. 

 Straight Stairlifts.

Straight stairlift tracks can only travel in straight lines, they cannot turn a corner or go around a bend.

The Sterling range offers you a range of straight stairlifts so one is sure to meet your needs: to find out more about our straight stairlifts have a look at the Simplicity Series and the Sterling 1000.

 Curved Stairlifts 

Curved stairlifts have tracks that are specifically designed to suit staircases that turn corners or are spiral.

All Sterling curved tracks are made to order following a survey of each individual staircase.

The Sterling curved stairlift system is called the Sterling 2000.
