Product description - HIRO 120
Flexibility is the great strength of our HIRO 120 stair lift model. What’s special about it: The seat can be replaced by a standing platform or a wheelchair platform if this should become necessary due to a change in health conditions. This ensures that our stair lift can be adapted to suit not only the living area but also your own personal needs.
Thanks to the tried and trusted dual tube guide and our patented traction drive, the HIRO 120 transports you gently and safely up or down your staircase, regardless of whether you use the seat, the standing unit or the platform for wheelchair users. Our all-rounder can be used both inside and out. The weather resistant version of this lift also allows you to overcome the stairs to the door of your house or steps in the garden.
The two parallel stainless steel tubes of the drive track are individually manufactured so that the lift can be mounted on straight and curved stairs. Versions are available with control via a lever in the armrest, a radio remote controller or a control unit with spiral cable.
An integrated rechargeable battery ensures that you can continue to drive in safety even in the event of a power failure. Once the lift is parked in the start or destination station, the rechargeable battery is charged automatically. A standard mains power outlet is enough for the stations.

HIRO 120 safety features
We place great importance on your safety.
For us, progressive design also means that we are consistently thinking about your safety and your comfort. For this reason, in addition to the normal safety equipment, all HIRO stair lifts also have a few noteworthy details:
Your stair lift is ready for use at any time thanks to the maintenance-free high-performance rechargeable battery.
With all stair lifts, the power supply is implemented via a maintenance-free rechargeable gel battery so that you can reach your destination safely even in the event of a power failure. Even without power, the lift still remains operational for several hours. If it is in one of the stopping stations, the intelligent charging electronics autonomously detects when the rechargeable battery needs to be recharged.
Our HIRO 150 and HIRO 160 stair lift models also bear the "GS-approved safety" seal. The GS mark certifies that the product has been checked by a German state-approved test centre and that it has fulfilled the requirements of the product safety law and complies with the European safety standards.
Furthermore, the lifts are of course type-approved by the TÜV (German Technical Inspection Agency) and comply with the European machinery directive 2006/42/EC.
The diagnostics display allows quick and cost-effective assistance
The practical diagnostics display enables all operational conditions to be made visible. This makes quick and simple fault diagnosis by telephone with our sales partners' technical service departments possible at any time.
Because conditions that deviate from normal operating mode are automatically shown on the display, the customer can simply read them along with the important service telephone numbers, and can generally get the lift back to normal operation with a call to the technical service department. In many cases there is no need to dispatch service personnel and you can continue to use your stair lift immediately and with no further costs being accrued.
Automatic safety stop
Electrical contact strips on the cladding of the stair lift and on the footplate ensure that the system comes to an immediate standstill as soon as there is an obstacle. Accidents are thus reliably prevented.
For your safety, all HIRO stair lifts are equipped with a safety belt - similar to the familiar car safety belts and just as strong and reliable.
