Built for Safety. Every detail of our Rubex electric powered stairlift is designed with your safety in mind. We build safety sensors into the footrest, include a locking mechanism in the seat belt, and give the motor instant reversing capability. With automatic limits at each end of the track, standard mechanical and electrical slack cable safety devices, and a fail-safe mechanism that prevents operation until the seat is in the correct position, this stairlift is one of the safest on the market today. It is ETL listed and meets ASME A17.1 and A18 safety standards for public and private use. We also include call stations for both top and bottom landings, which can be mounted to the wall or to the floor. Read more about AmeriGlide stair lift safety standards.

Easy "Homeowner" Installation. Unbelievably, the AmeriGlide Rubex electric powered stair lift simply plugs into the nearest outlet. No special wiring is needed! You can install it on either the right-hand or left-hand side of your staircase; you can even switch it from side to side without any additional parts.

Sleek Design Compliments Any Decor. The AmeriGlide Rubex electric powered stair lift is available in an attractive almond finish with your choice of vinyl seat color. When not in use, you can easily fold up the padded seat and flip up the footrest and your stair lift only takes up 14 inches of space. It's so compact, other people in your household always have full use of the stairs.

Not for standard steps;width of Steps Matter
Feb 10, 2015 1:25 PM
A Little About Myself
Homeowner for 30+years; second stairlift purchased
Pros
A product for homes with steps wider than 50inches.
Cons
Well the product is a good product the sales person did a poor job is assessing which product I would need. It should be standard practice for the sales person to advise customers if their stairway is standard size than get a slimmer model with vertical track, rather than railroad track.
Service & Delivery
Actually the delivery was put right outside the garage door. Delivered as close as he could get it to the house.
The bottom line is, it does matter it this unit is installed on the hand rail side of the steps, and expecially when the steps are standard size width of "36 inches". So just so all know the picture of the Rubex above shows a railroad track, if you have standard size steps you want that track on its side. Discussion: I purchased the Rubex AC/DC model without extra battery for my home for when mom visits and purchased the Bruno model for my mom's house. The Bruno model is slimmer, the track fits on its side and takes up less space in the stairwell, whereas the track for the Rubex is like a railroad track, takes up half the size of the narrow steps and you can barely walk up the steps. Additionally you cannot install the Rubex model on the side of the steps where the bannister is because the back seat will rub the banister and incrementally bleed the seat cover in the back off. The standard width size of most home steps is 36 inches wide, same as most doors, if a wheelchair the standard width is 44 inches. Therefore when you consider the handrail that protrudes from the wall outwardly at least two - three inches, there is no way you can install the Rubex (and maybe other models) as discussed in the Installation Guide on page 7, or as demonstrated in the You Tube videos. These two information presentations need to be succinct and they are not when giving advice on how much to measure from the wall to the track unit. Moreover if you look at the installation demonstration in the You Tube video it is for steps that appear to be wider than 36 inches.

A Little About Myself
Semi-retired mechanic and machinist
Pros
Simple and durable design, inexpensive and easy to install with both the manual and on-line video.
Cons
It could and should come with a parts schematic and parts manual. (Like many people I prefer to fix my own "stuff" and nothing lasts forever.
Service & Delivery
Experienced great communications with and from Eric at Raleigh NC Office. It was delivered by Fedex within a week of ordering. The packaging was durable and well crafted.

I'm 67 and worked on my feet most of my career so my knees suffer from bursitus when over-used. Routine daily chores also have me "running" up and down 13 steps to our basement office and shop fifteen to twenty times a day which our new Rubex now allows me to avoid. After just two weeks my knee pain no longer wakes me up at night and regret not getting one perhaps ten years ago. I installed it myself but used an overhead ratchet cable hoist secured with clamps from above the basement door and hooked to a short chain between the two front (downhill) seat assembly bolts for back-up safety and ease of lining up the track joints and lock plates. With just partial load on the hoist it was easy to assemble the unit in the middle of the stairway, approximate the bracket locations, and finally glide the unit in place close to the wall. I pre-drilled the lag bolt locations with a long 1/8" drill. A 1/4" drive socket set on extensions was plenty enough to drive in the bolts. I attached a photo of how I used the hoist. It sure made it easy. If I make any improvements in the future it will be a switched outlet to plug it into so we can shut it off when gone from home for extended period of time.

Pros
Cons
We bought a Rubex Electric Powered Stairlift online through Ameriglide. We couldn't be more pleased! It was the best experience from start to finish. The salesman (Justin) was so pleasant, friendly and helpful. The installer was excellent. The stairlift works great and has given my husband back his hobby (making pool cues), because now he can get down to his workshop. Plus, by using AmeriGlide, we saved a lot of money!

Very unhappy

A Little About Myself
Husband of an MS patient
Pros
The Rubex was delivered very quickly and installed professionally.
Cons
The Rubex is too wide for our stairwell, and leaves only 15 inches for passage. The salesman did not tell my wife and I that AmeriGlide has another stair lift that takes up much less space. The Rubex is very noisy, and has no height adjustment. The salesman refuses to respond to our complaints. My wife, who has MS, is greatly stressed out by this treatment.
Service & Delivery
No issues with delivery.
My wife and I are very unhappy with the sales service and the Rubez.
