The stairlift has hugely evolved since
King Henry VIII’s day! 

From a “stairthrone”, a chair hauled up and down stairs
by means of a block and tackle system,
to today’s safe and stylish stairlifts,
helping thousands of South Africans.

Interesting fact

One of the first recorded users of a stairlift was Henry VIII of England in the 16th century. In Henry’s mid 40’s he suffered a leg injury whilst jousting. Henry’s health declined after his accident and his stairs became a struggle. According to historians a “stairthrone” was made for Henry. The stairthrone was a chair that was hauled up the stairs and down by means of a block and tackle system by his servants in the Whitehall palace in London.


Life changing

Our safe and stylish stair-lifts have changed hundreds of thousands of lives
