The Regent Stair Lift has retracting stairs that reveal a platform lift for wheelchair users with a gate at the upper landing level. The gate is what sets this lift apart from other Sesame lift styles.

The Sesame Regent Wheelchair Platform Stairlift
  • Minimum horizontal pit length


  • Minimum platform size

    1400mm x 981mm

  • Maximum rise


  • Minimum pit depth below lower landing

    441mm + cladding


  • The Lift

    The Regent Wheelchair Stair Lift uses our solid stainless steel wheelstop. A toe guard that rises around the platform lift to prevent wheelchairs wheels from rolling off the stairlift. Please see On Lift Barriers for more information.

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

    Nominal Platform dimensions for this lift can vary due to site requirements, however they are a minimum of:

    1408mm (l) x 1010mm (w) x 0-999mm (h)

    Please click on The Lifting Actuator link for more information on the mechanism used to raise and lower the wheelchair platform stairlift

  • The Stairs

    The Regent Wheelchair Stair Lift can accommodate up to 7 risers/stairs depending on stair height.

    Please see our retracting stair technical page for more information.

  • The Upper Landing Barrier

    The Regent Wheelchair Stairlift has an automatic gate at the upper landing to protect the fall hazard that is created when the stairs retract.

    Please see Upper Landing Barriers for more information.

  • User Type

    The Regent Wheelchair Stairlift is for seated users only as the wheelstop only protects wheelchairs from rolling off, not standing. Please see What barriers do I need on the Sesame chair lift? for more information.

  • System Requirements

    The Regent Wheelchair Stair Lift can come with either bellows to reduce the pit depth or a solid stainless steel skirt below the lift. Please see concealing the underside of the lift for more information.

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

    For general details on the pit depth please see the 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.

    Please click on the The Sesame Stair Lift Controls for more information on the controls for this style of lift.

  • Variations to the Regent Wheelchair Platform Stairlift

    The permanently fixed on-lift button post can be upgraded to a rising button post that rises through the lift table when the stairs retract. The post then retracts completely out of site when not in use. This system can be fit with an upper landing rising barrier as seen here: Knightsbridge Stair Lift.

    The on-lift permanent button post can be replaced with a removable hand held post as seen here: Kensington Stairlift in London 1052

    If pit depth is an issue the Sesame Thames Stair Lift sits within a pit depth of 160mm + cladding thickness.

    If the horizontal pit depth is an issue then the Sesame Victoria Stair Lift with vertically retracting stairs may be a solution.
