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.

Due to its unique size, drive mechanism and dual rail support system, the Stiltz Lift can be fitted virtually anywhere in the home. The innovative shape of non-hydraulic home lifts also means it can fit in even more places as its footprint is not a simple rectangle. But here are five typical applications for Stiltz domestic lifts which are favourite with our customers.

The most common place for Stiltz through floor lifts to be installed is a standard retrofit application with the lift travelling between a downstairs room such as a hallway or living room and going upstairs to a main bedroom or on the landing.

Many of our customers, particularly those with mobility problems, want to simply be able to get in their home lift at the end of an evening and go straight upstairs into their bedroom without any more effort needed before they go to sleep.

Another popular solution with Stiltz customers is the stairwell void application – this means a domestic lift can be installed using the dead space within a turning staircase. This is an ideal solution for people that would rather not have the lift installed in their living room or lounge and prefer to have the lift positioned in the same place as the stairs.

A great place for the Stiltz Lift is also the cupboard to cupboard application. This is possible because of the lift’s footprint which measures just 0.62m2 – the smallest of any domestic lifts on the market in the United Kingdom. Because of its super small size, the home lifts can be fitted in an airing cupboard or wardrobe for example.

Stiltz offer an exclusive feature for through floor lifts that means the domestic lifts are capable of having a double entry or thru-car configuration. This means that the home lift can cater for a thru car application that requires two entrances. In order to achieve this, the lift is fitted with two half weight interlocked doors instead of one, and landing gates which are interlocked, and also two sets of curtains so it is still just as safe as a regular Stiltz domestic lift.

The Stiltz Lift can also be installed as free standing home lift if there happens to be a very high ceiling or chapel in the upstairs of the house. The rail structure can simply be stopped at the correct height necessary. Stiltz lifts all travel up to one floor but multiple lifts can fitted in one property if required. We also offer wheelchair lifts and luxury home lifts from our home lifts range.
