What our experts say about the Scout

“The Scout is a great chair for straight stairs, especially basement stairs with a door at the top. It’s a straight forward, affordable option but still a quality lift with some of Stannah’s best safety features. And for people who have hardwood floors, the Walnut upholstery is a perfect match!”

Safety edges

Safety sensors around the footrest and carriage automatically detect any obstruction on your stairs, bringing your Solus to a safe and gentle stop.

Seat safety sensor

A sensor within the seat ensures your stairlift won't move until you're safely settled in your chair.

Removable link bars

If you need side access from a wheelchair, the link bars can be removed, enabling you to move safely and easily onto the chair.

Power supply

All Stannah stairlifts run on powerful batteries that trickle-charge when the stairlift is not in use. What if the power goes out? Depending on the length of the staircase, the stairlift will continue to work for 10 – 20 return journeys, but will beep to let you know it’s not charging and to remind you to temporarily turn the stairlift off.

The stairlift connects with regular 110 Volt household power outlets. Ideally, we will use one within 10’ of the top or bottom of the stairs. It is best if an outlet is permanently live. This means the stairlift is always able to charge without being turned off by accident.

Battery lifespan: typically 3 - 5 years

Although Stannah use batteries that are readily available – they are commonly found in alarm systems etc. – they must be replaced by trained technicians. This ensures the electronics inside the stairlift are not damaged.

Safety features

Like all Stannah Stairlfits, The Scout is equipped with an over-speed governor to ensure that your lift always runs at the proper speed
The Scout’s batteries recharge automatically so your lift is always ready for use, ensuring multiple trips up and downstairs during a power outage.
The footrest and armrest fold up, so you can back into the chair, unobstructed.
Manual Swivel levers turn the chair so that the user can disembark in the safest position possible.
