Product description - outside systems
With a stair lift you can increase your mobility and independence in your own home. But there can also be barriers outside that infringe on your life quality. In many cases the door of the house or the garden can only be reached via stairs. You want to enjoy life outside your own four walls - especially in the summer months. Expand your mobility with a lift for outdoor steps.
It does not matter if you need a system for straight or curved stairs. We can individually adapt your lift to suit your stairway. Alongside our customary high quality, we also guarantee the maximum level of safety with our outside systems too.
Our stair lifts are designed for outdoor use so that they remain fully functional even in poor weather conditions. Electronics and rechargeable batteries are shielded from rain and wind. Long-term corrosion protection and protection from moisture as well as water-repellent seat surfaces also ensure a long service life.

|Features:||Weather-proof design – this means that with outdoor systems, the components are corrosion protected by sand-blasting and subsequent zinc spraying or hot-dip galvanising as well as by using stainless steel (drive track tubes), depending on the components in question. The electrical components are furnished with corresponding moisture protection. It is also possible to have the drive track heated as frost protection.|
Very few people realise that stair lifts can also be installed outdoors, for example to develop the entrance area. We equip our stair lift models with special weather protection. All sensitive parts are thus weather-resistant and ideally suited for outdoor use. Here are a few different examples of stair lifts in outdoor installations.

Safety features for outdoor use
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.
