AMW has a solution for every staircase. All 2000 stairlifts share the same typical features: easy to operate, whisper silent and functional design with the twin tubular rail.
If you are thinking about installing a stairlift, and your stairs turn corners or are spiral, the Handicare 2000 offers you a safe and reliable solution.
Handicare’s Stairlifts have helped thousands of people overcome the problems posed by going up and down their stairs at home.
The Handicare 2000 stairlift suits most staircases with bends or corners and offers you all the basic functions that you would expect plus the option to upgrade to a powered seat swivel and/or folding footplate.
With a choice of six upholstery colours and two track colours the Handicare 2000 compliments most colour schemes.
Fitted to the stairs, not the wall, it is unlikely you will need to redecorate following the installation of your Handicare 2000 stairlift.
Like all Handicare stairlifts the Handicare 2000 has a battery backup which means it will continue to work in the event of a power cut so you do not need to worry about being stranded up or downstairs.
The compact unit folds up leaving the staircase free for other users and the bespoke track is designed to fit your individual staircase and maximise clear space on the stairway. It can be supplied with a powered hinged track if required.
The Handicare 2000 also comes with two remote controls which means, once folded, you can easily send it to the upstairs charge point freeing up space in your hallway.

The first thing to remember is that all stair lifts were not created equal! Although there is an ever growing demand for stair lift equipment, it is truly amazing how many out dated products are being installed in peoples homes throughout theUK. This old technology equipment can be troublesome for the user - why? - because it's unreliable. Things have moved on since the days of chain drives and trailing cables.
Modern stair lifts, like the Handicare 2000 Stair Lift, are state of the art, in terms of design and manufacture, yet are so simple to install and maintain.
As with most things - there is a baffling amount of choice out there in the marketplace. When choosing a piece of equipment like a stair lift, it is important to ensure that you are making like-for-like comparisons. Think carefully when buying this type of product via the internet. Your first real opportunity to clearly see the features, engineering (and limitations) of your new stair lift, are when it arrives on your doorstep.
Your Handicare 2000 seat, armrests and footrest can be folded to allow easier passage up and down stairs when it is not in use (see pic). The compact unit folds up leaving the staircase free for other users and the bespoke track is designed to fit your individual staircase and maximise clear space on the stairway. It can be supplied with a powered hinged track if required.
The hand control (see pic) is used to call the lift to either the top/bottom of the stairs or to operate a powered folding hinge where fitted. The control may also be used by an attendant control where the user is unable to operate the stairlift themselves.
Like all Handicare stairlifts the Handicare 2000 has a battery backup which means it will continue to work in the event of a power cut so you do not need to worry about being stranded upstairs or down.
As well as a key switch the stairlift is fitted with an on/off switch (see pic) on the bottom, side panel of the lift. If you intend to be away from home for a long period, and decide to switch off the mains supply, it is important that you also switch off the lift from this on/off switch. This will ensure that the lift batteries will remain charged while you are away.
In order to maximize free space, all Handicare stairlifts have seats, footplates and arms that are designed to be manually folded up out of the way when not in use, allowing clear access for other stair users.
The Handicare range fold neatly away when not in use to maximise space on the stairs for other users. The seat and footrest fold away with one simple movement.
For your safety all Handicare stair lifts are fitted as standard with a retractable inertia seatbelt.
Your stairlift is fitted with safety edges on the bottom of the footrest and on the lift itself that will stop the stairlift should any article become trapped by the footrest or the lift, goin up and coming down.
Situated on the body of the stairlift this allows you to see the exact status of your Handicare 2000 stair lift at all times.
