  • The Lift

    The Paddington Stair Lift uses a solid stainless steel barrier that rises 1100mm around the user to fully enclose them on all sides. For more information please see On Lift Barriers.

    The lift table can be made to accept any cladding, the thicker the cladding the deeper the pit depth.

    Please see The Lifting Actuator for more information on the mechanism used to raise and lower the stair lift.

  • The Upper Landing Barrier

    The Paddington Stair Lift houses an automatic rising barrier at the upper landing to protect from a fall hazard. Please see Upper Landing Barriers for more information.

  • User type

    The Paddington Stair Lift is for standing and wheelchair users due to its 1100mm high rising barriers. Please see On lift barriers for more information.

  • System requirements

    The Paddington Stair Lift comes with a solid stainless steel skirt under the disabled lift. Please see Concealing the underside of the lift for more information.

    For details on the power supply please see lift power supply.

    For general details on the pit depth please see lift pit.

    If the surrounding area presents a crush zone the lift table can be fitted with safety edges to detect an obstruction. Please see Crush hazards surrounding the moving lift for more information.

    The on board controls for this lift sit within the solid rising barrier. The rising barriers must be controlled by a member of staff, or the user must have wireless controls. Please see The Sesame Stair Lift Controls for more information.

  • Variations to the ​​The Paddington Stair Lift​​​​

    The upper landing barrier can be replaced with an automatic gate to save on upper landing pit depth as seen on our Belgravia Disabled Lift. This video also shows a platform only version of the Paddington without the retracting stairs.

    Variations to the controls can be achieved with a permanent button post on the lift as seen here: Mayfair Stairlift. Additionally a rising button post can be used as seen here: Knightsbridge Stair Lift.

    If pit depth is an issue the solid stainless steel wheelstop can be replaced by a handrail and an automatic gate that will rise with the lift as seen here: Cambridge Part M Lift.
