Trio Home Lifts

An easy, adaptable solution

The Stannah Trio wheelchair lift helps wheelchair users live independently at home.

The Stannah Trio Lift is an innovative wheelchair lift that has been designed to answer wheelchair users’ accessibility needs in the home.

Larger than the Stannah Duo Lift but still compact, the Trio can fit a standard-sized wheelchair and is ideal for users with walking frames. The Trio Lift can give wheelchair users more freedom in the home and it is the perfect alternative to a Stairlift.

Its larger interior cab space and heavier weight load means the lift can carry an extra person, easily transport luggage and carry other bigger items. The Stannah Trio Lift is the only through floor lift on the market that can be fitted virtually anywhere in the home.

Unlike other wheelchair lifts, the Trio does not use noisy hydraulics or vacuum systems and is powered by a quiet electric motor drive system. It plugs straight into any normal 13-amp power socket and delivers flawless performance.

The Trio Lift does not require load bearing walls as the lift uses the unique Stannah dual rail technology which creates a self-supporting structure.

Assembled in the UK, the Stannah Trio Lift offers unrivalled flexibility in terms of placement in the home. It can be installed in just one day with minimal building work and disruption.

From lounge to bedroom or hallway to study, the wheelchair lift requires a remarkably small space so the choice can be yours.

The Stannah Trio Range

Stannah Trio Classic

The Trio is a larger and heavier weight load version of the Duo Classic.

Although compact it is still big enough to accommodate a standard-sized wheelchair. It is also an ideal lift for anyone using a walking frame.

Stannah Trio Vista

This Trio has solid side walls and is fitted with a clear body made from structural polycarbonate at the back to give it a contemporary look.

The Trio Vista allows natural light to flood in if the home lift is placed in front of or close to a window. It offers all the same features as the Classic.

Stannah Trio Thru Car

The Trio Thru Car allows users to enter and exit from both sides of the lift. This is made possible by the unique Stannah dual rail technology.

There is no other wheelchair lift of this kind on the market that can have a double entry or thru car configuration. It offers all the same features as the Classic.

Prices include all standard site preparation and installation costs

Stannah Trio Classic

An innovative wheelchair lift that has been designed to answer wheelchair users’ accessibility needs in the home

Optional Extras

Fold Down Seat – This is a popular option selected by customers for the short trip between floors

Full Height Door – An interlocked door that replaces the half-height door and light curtain

Uninterruptible Power Supply – This system will allow for numerous trips both up and down whilst the main power to the lift is out

Interior Grab Rail – Offers increased security for the occupants of the lift

Bespoke Colours & Finishes – Customise your Stannah lift by choosing different colour lift car, rails and interior lining

Interior Telephone – In the very unlikely event that the lift stops while you are travelling in it, help is just a phone call away.

Safety Features

Full Height Light Curtain – A full-height motion sensor is situated at the entrance of our lifts (unless a full height door is chosen). If this barrier is crossed the lift will immediately stop

Key Switch Operation – This feature allows the owner to isolate the lift if the need arises. This is commonly used when going away on holiday or when the grandchildren are around

Hold-To-Run Controls – Operating a Stannah Lift requires constant pressure to the controls. This allows the user to ‘drive’ the lift and feel in total control

Out-of-Balance Sensors – Sensors will detect if the lift is ever out of balance and prevent the unit from travelling

Over Speed Detection – The lift uses an optical sensor to detect the speed of travel. If this increases beyond a certain speed, the sensor will stop the lift from travelling in that direction

Safety Lid Plug –  This crucial feature plugs the aperture in the floor when the lift is in the downstairs position. It is strong enough to stand on and you can place your original flooring on top to blend in

Top & Bottom Safety Pans – Using our obstruction sensing covers, a Stannah Lift can detect objects above or below the lift, causing it to immediately stop

Weight Limit Sensors – Our Trio Lifts are limited to 220kg | 35st | 485lbs. The lift detects anything exceeding this limit and will not travel.

Fall Arrest Mechanism – This patented system prevents the car from falling in the unlikely event of the steel ropes going slack

Emergency Stop Button – This button is front and centre for the user in the event of an emergency
