Stanley offer a very strong range of mobility products for use in public buildings, designed to improve user mobility, comfort and boost the ease of navigation for visitors that are less mobile, whilst improving operational efficiency, the professional image of your institution and ultimately safety.
Suitable for use in public buildings we have two types of wheelchair stair climber, which are the Tolo and the Jolly.
The Tolo is a battery-powered wheelchair unit, which enables users to ascend and descend the majority of staircases that may be located around libraries, courts, government buildings or other public institutions without having to be moved between chairs.
The key benefit of this piece of equipment is its unique drive system, this enables the user to navigate the wheelchair around the environment unaided. However, a trained individual is required during the stair climbing process, which is a very straightforward task, completed at the touch of a button. The seat itself is equipped with a foldable armrest, headrest and adjustable footrest to optimise user comfort.
Various attachments and configurations can also be supplied for a more tailored solution.
The other wheelchair stair climber ideal for public buildings is the Jolly, which allows most types of wheelchair to be fitted onto its secure systems frame.
It is designed to work with electric chairs, wheelchairs with tilting or movable backrests and even pushchairs, should visitors have younger children with mobility impairments. It is a fully-collapsible unit with a range of customisable features, such as a large base plate for larger wheelchair designs.
It can easily be dismantled into two separate pieces which enable it to be transported in a car, van or coach.
The key benefit for this stair climber is that it enables users to be transported within their own wheelchair, which offers a very dignified solution and has minimal impact on staff. Ultimately these solutions present the right image to staff, the public and key government stakeholders and demonstrate that steps have been taken to provide safe passage for all.
