If you are looking to buy a safe and efficient commercial wheelchair lift to improve accessibility in your building, you could consider the elegant Roby powered stair climber from Savaria. This model is designed to allow an operator to move a person in a wheelchair safely and smoothly over a flight of stairs. The climber can be used both outdoors and indoors on stairs up to a 35 degree angle. This serves as an efficient emergency evacuation system for schools, banquet halls and other public buildings.

The lift comes with a standard load capacity of 285 lbs and travels at a nominal speed of 16 ft/min (ascending/descending, loaded or unloaded). This Savaria lift has a range of safety features such as:

  • Manual emergency device (for safe descent in case of a dead battery)
  • Keyed operation to restrict access
  • User safety belt
  • Emergency stop button
  • Slope indicator
  • Battery charge indicator

In situations when an elevator or lift cannot be used, or when there is no elevator or lift, this mobile tracked and portable stair climber that features a compact two-piece design is a good option. It attaches securely with clamps to most standard adult or pediatric manual wheelchairs. This device has a long-lasting battery that can travel many trips on a single charge. Its rubberized track does not scratch the floor and assures a smooth and quiet operation. It features a high friction electronic traction control system that ensures secure contact with the floor.

After securely fastening the wheelchair with its easy-clip system, the operator guides the lift up or down the stairs. The wheelchair user can remain in a natural upright position. Unlike many other wheelchair lifts, this model from Savaria is effective on turn-back stairs with a flat intermediate landing. Other than for commercial purposes, this lift can be used for residential applications also, both indoors and outdoors. You can buy Roby Powered Stair Climber in Long Island from established accessibility equipment dealers like DAY Elevator and Lift, and enjoy an overall pleasing purchase experience.
