What is a stairlift hinge track system?

Occasionally, the design of hallway and positioning of doors at the bottom of the stairs means that the stairlift track must be placed in front of a door or an awkward bend. This causes an obstruction in your home. To overcome this problem we can install a hinge track system, which can be either powered or manual. The park position will then be re-located higher up the track.

A hinge track will enable the stairlift to travel up and down the track as normal. When not in use, the track is conveniently folded upwards to free the obstruction.

The powered hinge track is especially useful for those experiencing bending difficulties as the hinge is lowered and raised automatically and requires no effort. To see how a powered hinge track works, click here: Stairlift Hinge Track
