The StairSteady is a system designed specifically for those who need assistance climbing the stairs but don't yet need a stairlift.

It is a very clever solution that consists of a folding handle on a rail which is attached to your wall along your flight of stairs.

The handle is a moving part which locks in place when any pressure is put and allows you to take a rest at any point of your stairs with safety.

It can be used by a user with a maximum weight of 25 stone.

It also provides you with a sturdy and secure handle to hold on to as you walk up or down the stairs at your own pace. You will be able to maintain your independence and freedom without compromising on appearance.

The StairSteady is of value in many situations, whether recovering from some treatment or injury or having a permanent condition that makes you less stable. We have helped a wide range of customers from children through to the elderly with a varied assortment of conditions.

It enables people to remain active and make full use of their homes with an increaased sense of confidence and security.

The StairSteady is designed and manufactured in Sheffield to meet ISO 9000 standards. It is quick and easy to install and required very little ongoing care. It can also be re-used so that if the customer decides to move home or needs a different solution it can be traded in through our dealer network.


Q: Does it matter if the wall to which the StairSteady will be fixed is a stud wall?

A: No, provided the wall has wooden supports.

Q: What happens if there are two people in the house that need to use the StairSteady?

A: It is possible to have a modified version with two handles on a single rail. So that once one

person has climbed the stairs the second can still follow.

Q: What happens if my stairs are not just a single straight flight of steps?

A: For a split flight the StairSteady can be supplied in two sections, one for each flight, each

with its own steadying handle (dogleg).

Q: Would a StairSteady replace my existing handrail?

A: Not necessarily, but it is a high quality handrail as well, so can replace your existing rail or

supplement it when mounted on the opposite wall to your existing handrail.

Q: Does it obstruct the stairs?

A: No, because it folds neatly out of the way when not in use, so others can use the stairs


Q: How long will it take to fit?

A: It takes about two hours to install

Q: how do I order one?

A: Download the survey sheet in the attachments tab and complete this - then simply email this to us at

Enhanced Warranty Package: £125.00 including VAT

Considering buying an electric wheelchair, mobility scooter, electric rise and recline chair, bath lift, hoist  or electric profiling beds? 

As manufacturers’ warranties do not in general include callouts and labour, we highly recommend our  “12 Months Enhanced Warranty Support "  which covers the cost of call outs and labour to diagnose faults and fit warranty parts for up to 3 call outs in year one. 

Should your product develop a fault we will always try to diagnose the problem by telephone to provide the quickest solution.   

If you opt in to the enhanced warranty support we will appoint a competent person to call out and fit parts under warranty and there would be no charge incurred for the call out and labour. 

If you don’t opt in to this service, we can either despatch the parts via courier for you to appoint your own fitter or we would offer to arrange a chargeable call out for an engineer to visit.   

This enhanced warranty option doesn’t cover the cost of call outs and labour to repair or fit parts not covered under warranty due to damage or customer misuse.   In the event of non warranty parts requirements labour and call outs are chargeable at the standard rate.

Installation and Plumbing

Some of our products will require installation by a qualified person such as a plumber, electrician or engineer. This includes the installation of Stairlifts, overhead track hoists, Biobidet toilet washers, level access shower trays and our range of bath tubs.
