  • Lifetime warranty for stairlifts purchased from October 1st, 2018

Neuss, September 26th, 2018 – thyssenkrupp wants people to be able to live comfortably and conveniently within their own four walls well into old age. For over 40 years, the company’s customized home mobility solutions have been enabling people across the world to do just that. And from October 1, 2018 onwards, thyssenkrupp will go one step further and offer a lifetime warranty on all its stairlifts. This was announced by thyssenkrupp at this year’s REHACARE trade fair. “As a leader in mobility innovations, we give this promise of quality with full confidence,” says Dirk Marschall, CEO thyssenkrupp Home Solutions. “We firmly believe in the German engineering expertise behind our custom-built stairlifts, so much so that we guarantee them to our clients on a lifetime basis. Our offer of Engineering you can trust. for life. Now with Lifetime Warranty! puts this in a nutshell.”

The recent thyssenkrupp study “Housing for the elderly” – conducted in Germany – reveals: two thirds of all people over the age of 65 live in a home in which they face mobility and accessibility problems. The figures are also an indicator for other countries with similar demographics. Dating back to over 200 years of proven Made in Germany engineering expertise, thyssenkrupp offers people who are affected by accessibility issues numerous mobility solutions for barrier-free living in their own homes. These include stairlifts, platform lifts and home lifts. The German government also offers grants for accessibility conversions through the Care Support Act (Pflegestärkungsgesetz, PSG), which may amount to EUR 8,000 for married couples if certain conditions are met.

Highest safety and quality standards

thyssenkrupp stairlifts meet the highest safety and security standards. The patented Advanced Swiveling and Levelling (ASL) technology, integrated in the Flow II model for curved stairs, ensures the most comfortable and secure seating position during the ride. The Flow II and Levant models are also equipped with the “obstruction-stop” feature, which stops the stairlift automatically if obstacles on the staircase are identified. Delivery and installation are carried out after a short production period and only take a few hours, without requiring any major renovation measures.
