The AC powered stair lift Summit provides is not suggestible because of the hassles and dangers it causes. The AC powered chair lift requires an electrical cable to power it, because of this cable wire, it might get reeled in the tracks, cause some damage and cause stoppages. You would not want to be stuck in the middle of your stair case especially if you have mobility problems and would really need to go to the restroom would you? If you are not gifted with having some great mechanical ability in handling electrical stuff, it might also cause you to be shocked by the electricity.
The DC model on the other hand is more convenient to use. They run smoother and are much quieter as well. They are also easier to use for people who are handicapped because it is more controllable by the user. It also can still be operated during power outrages.
It is easier to maintain an Ameri Glide by Summit compared to its competitors. They are easier to maintain because their gear box have vent plugs. Their vent plugs makes sure that their gear box is sealed and prevents leaks.
The Ameri Glide has sensors on its foot rest that helps it detect if there are some blockages that might cause the chair lift user to be in an accident. A limit switch is also provided to help the chair stop in the position where it was in the bottom or the top of the stairs. Their company also offers a 3 year warranty service.
– It uses a wide padded seat that can be folded when not in use.
– Foot rest can be adjusted to two different heights.
– Backrest has three different positions.
– The user can safely and comfortably mount and dismount the stair chair lift at the bottom and the top of the lift because of its 180 degree swivel seat.
– Can be placed on either side of the stair case
– The control can be put on either arm rest
– Controls can be mounted to the floor at the end of each staircase making it operational by foot.
– Because of that control type, the chair stair lift can be called when it is on the other end and is very useful for households who have more than 1 user of the stair chair lift.
The Ameri Glide manufactured by Summit is one of many other brands of stair chair lifts. It would seem to be a good brand to order your stair lifts from as they have been in business for 20 years. If they have bad products why haven’t they shut down yet? I’m pretty sure that some customers have encountered some minor problems, but what brand hasn’t? But the best advice really is to try to search the net for other brands that may seem best fro you. As I can not personally recommend any brand, because I haven’t used one yet.
