COVID 19 Statement

Coronavirus – Covid-19 presents us with an unprecedented global challenge. Stiltz Ltd. continues to review activities on a daily basis to comply with Government directives.

Stiltz is a proud member of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) through whom we are co-ordinating industry efforts to keep the most vulnerable living safely in their own homes. Reducing the instance of accidents within the home will help reduce stress on the NHS hospital care system.

For existing customers, a Stiltz Homelift can be that lifeline to independence. Our homecare support policy means Stiltz engineers continue to provide an essential service by maintaining customers’ lifts for ongoing safe, reliable and independent access, while acting within Government guidelines.

For new homelift installations we offer the options of a phone call, remote video consultation via tablet/laptop/smartphone, or email consultation. For those with an urgent in-home consultation need, we will minimise risk by following latest Government guidelines.

Additional processes have been put in place to mitigate risk to you, our staff and the wider Stiltz community:

· We will request confirmation that nobody at the property we are due to visit has Covid-19 or is defined as extremely vulnerable, and in need of being shielded. If Covid-19 is present, or a person is isolating or deemed as extremely vulnerable, we will follow government advice.

· All customer visits will be subject to additional sanitation measures. Stiltz installers/engineers will wash or sanitise their hands prior to entering your property and upon leaving. They will not offer to shake hands, will refuse offers of a beverage and will maintain the prescribed 2 metre distance

· Regular health and safety bulletins will be issued to all office and field-based staff

· All field-based staff will be asked, on a daily basis, to confirm they are clear of symptoms prior to commencing their working day

· All staff who fall ill with Covid-19 or who are self-isolating, will receive full pay during the period they are indisposed.

Stiltz will follow government advice at all times. Our priority is customer and staff safety, whilst continuing to provide the necessary homecare support to ensure vital independence.

We are delighted to announce that we have expanded our UK operations and opened a new Stiltz Lifts office in West Yorkshire.

Our new base in Leeds has been headed up by Michael Loftus, an industry specialist who has more than two decades of experience in the mobility market.

Michael and his team are already doing a great job and we are very pleased to have him on board. He leads a strong and dedicated team that has already surpassed early sales targets.

We decided to open a new Stiltz Lifts office in the centre of Leeds as we have experienced rapid growth since introducing our unique range of domestic lifts to the market in 2011.

Our innovative home lift was the first and only through floor lift of its kind to be launched in the UK that travels via dual rail technology and plugs straight into the wall using a normal 13amp power socket.

It is with some pride that we can say the Stiltz Lift requires no hydraulics, no vacuum system, no lift shaft, no load bearing walls or any major building work.

This means the Stiltz team can install the domestic lift, which has a footprint of less than seven square feet, practically anywhere in the home making it an ideal alternative to a stairlift.

The new Leeds office will support our headquarters which is based in the South in Wokingham, Berkshire. For more information about Stiltz Lifts contact us today for your free information pack.
