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.

Following the success of the Stiltz Duo Lift in 2010, we returned to the research and development department to launch the next Stiltz lift, the Vista Lift, two years later.

Launched as the first domestic through floor lift in the world to be made of structural polycarbonate, the Vista Lift is also a luxury home lift and the only one available to have a completely ‘clear’ lift car. The idea for this came about as we were keen to create a sophisticated version of the Duo Lift that would blend into a room without almost being seen and cater for the luxury home lifts market.

That way when the lift was installed it would cause minimal disruption to any existing décor and furnishings. Its neutral or ‘see through’ lift car would also allow it to bring natural light into a room. The lifts are perfect for installing in front of an existing window for example and can even be installed around the house.

Some of our customers are elderly or retired with mobility problems and have lived in their homes for a number of years so redecorating their living room for example to accomodate a home lift may not have been an option they would want to consider. This could be because they might not want to change the particular décor or it could result in further financial outlay as they may have had to hire a painter or decorator.

To make life easier, the Vista Lift, eliminates this problem and minimises the amount of disruption caused as the lift is designed to simply blend into any room and become part of the furniture. The Vista Lift is also our premium lift in the Stiltz Home Lifts Range and is very modern and sleek in design and has a futuristic feel to it that can equally compliment a room with it offering the smallest footprint of any residential lift on the market.

While the Vista Lift is a perfect alternative to a stairlift for people with mobility problems, it is also an option for people looking for a more luxurious lifestyle. These luxury home lifts combine technical innovation with sophisticated style and can be a wonderful addition to any home and also increase the value of the property if you decide to sell the house in the future.

The Vista Lift operates in exactly the same way as its predecessor, the Duo Lift, so no load bearing walls are required and the lift does not use hydraulics. Instead it uses a unique dual rail system and is powered by a self-contained motor system inside the lift car that delivers the same flawless performance with still just usually a day to install.

The Lift also includes all the same innovative safety features as the Duo, a half-height swing door, two remote controls to call the lift to any floor, an interior seat and internal LED down lights.
