Safety Is Our Number-One Priority. Our Rubex Battery Powered Stair Lift includes many safety features. The footrest has built in sensors that can detect objects on the stairs. The seat belt has a locking mechanism and the motor can instantly be reversed if needed. There is also a sensor that only permits the stairlift to be operated when the swivel seat is locked into the correct position. Limits at either end of the track and electrical slack cable safety devices make our Battery Powered Stair Lift one of the safest on the market. It meets ASME A17.1 and A18 safety standards for both private and public use. This stair lift is also ETL listed. Included with the stairlift are two call stations that can be mounted on the top and bottom landing. Read more about AmeriGlide safety standards and certifications.

Installation Is a Breeze. Your AmeriGlide Rubex battery powered stairlift is factory prepared for easy self-installation. No special tools or skills are required! 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. Because the track is factory-cut to fit your stairs, it connects directly to your stairtreads—not the wall. That means no unsightly structural work!

Sleek, Compact Design. Since space is at a premium, the seat and footrest of our Rubex Battery Powered Stair Lift can be folded up when not in use. When folded, this stair chair only takes up 14 inches of space, so others will still be able to safely use the stairs if needed. With a very elegant almond finish and a choice of vinyl seat color, this stairlift will compliment any home.

We're here to help! Contact one of our stairlift experts to ask any questions or to find out more about how the battery powered stairlift fits your life.

A Little About Myself

70 year retired fire alarm tech

Pros

Every thing was shipped and arrived in great shape. We received great advice of what to buy from the representive we talked to. Was shipped and arrived in less time then prommised.

Cons

Only problem was had to read instructions twice. Most likely Me and my need to be right the first time when I install anything.

Service & Delivery

Great. All was shipped and arrived before date promised. Was great service.
Need tow lifts as we had a landing half way up. First lift took 3 hrs to install Second one took 2 hrs. Not a problem at all. If I had needed three the next would have taken less time again.

Easy to install and operate!!!!!

A Little About Myself

Home repair,remodler.

Pros

Easy to install and use for a customer.When AmeriGlide said "It's easy", they know what they are talking about!!! AmeriGlide insists on certain measurements and they are for a good reason, don't forget any of them.

Cons

Installation is easiest with 2 people, Not necessary, but easier.

Service & Delivery

Arrived on time considering, it was ordered during Christmas holidays.
Everything AmeriGlide says is true, I was a little skeptical at first, but after working with the Staff they proved they know their products and all aspects of their product line. I had one minor problem with back of the seat and wall clearance. Simply bent seat back slightly forward, away from wall. Would consider installing in this region,for other people.

Eighty year-old female with arthritis.

Pros

Quiet, smoothe, and reliable.

Cons

Wide, not compact.

Service & Delivery

The service and delivery was flawless - no problems whatsoever.

We were surprisingly pleased with our new stair lift. The price was much cheaper than other manufacturers which made us skeptical, but it works great.

Why we like our stair lift.
May 26, 2011 10:19 AM

A Little About Myself

A somewhat physically enabled 80 and 78 y/o married couple.

Pros

This is a very helpful tool and we are completely satisfied with it. We now have access to our upstairs bedroom wing with no problem. All that is says in the information is completely true, with the exception of one thing, which I will describe in the 'cons' section. I would like to ad that a big plus goes to the sales rep from whom we ordered the stairlift with. He was courteous, truthful and cooperative.

Cons

The installer did not seem confident and we have an annoying bump where the top section of rails meet the rest of the rails because they aren't parallel to the bottom part. I have concern that this will cause damage to the nylon wheels. Also, he did not mention that the remotes could be installed on the wall, instead of just lying around in the way on the floor.

Service & Delivery

Arrival time was perfect. I was not home when delivery came, but it was placed neatly and out of the weather on my front porch. I left it there until Installation came the next day.
Everything great except the installation. Refer to my 'pros' and 'cons'.

Property Committee Madison Heights Christian Church

Pros

None as of yet.

Cons

Reasonable price. Seems it is well constructed. Simplicity of installation. Warranty better than other leading brands. Lift delivered as promised.

Service & Delivery

Lift delivered as promised.
We installed the lift in our church, with the help of 3 retired men who had limited mechanical experience. It only took them under 3 hours without problems, to install the lift.

A Little About Myself

Pros

Definitely like the upgraded chair and motor. Worth the extra money.

Cons

None as of yet. I have only had this stair lift for a couple of weeks.

Service & Delivery

Delivery and packaging are great.
The only problem, I have is the clearance between my leg and the opposite wall of the stair case. I have a polio leg that does not bend so it doesn't clear the opposite wall or the height of each step as I go up and down.

My father uses it all the time and loves it.

A Little About Myself

I am 50 years-old and bought the stair lift for my father.

Pros

Stair lift works great and is easy to use. Since putting it in, my father has not used the stairs at all.

Cons

We self installed the stair lift - directions for putting the second battery into the base were not spelled out.

Service & Delivery

Service was very good - ordering and explaining all the options.
Overall very good product and works as advertised.

A Little About Myself

I'm an 83 year old-man just out of the hospital, and I couldn't get to the bathroom without it! Old man out of the hospital, having just had a serious battle with pneumonia. I love my AmeriGlide stairlift.

Pros

Easy to use in a very tight area. Smooth, quiet and reliable. It didn't cost an arm and a leg, either.

Cons

Beats me.

Service & Delivery

Exactly as promised. The installer knew exactly what he was doing. If I was younger, I could of installed it myself to save a few bucks, but still, the whole package works well.
What can I say? I love this stairlift.

Pros

Like the cost

Cons

A little on the noisy side, coming up the stairs.

Service & Delivery

Delivery and Service so far is excellednt
So far appears to be reliable. Was concerned at first, about getting on it. I'm wondering how long the nylon rollers and the cable pulley will last, including any other parts.

A Little About Myself

Male, Senior, and Cardiac Patient.

Pros

Excellent product

Cons

Extra charge for "out-of-town" installer was too high.

Service & Delivery

Never got a call-back, after I commented negatively on the installer travel charge. The installer was outstanding, please send him on all calls.
See Service and Delivery below. I have a Guide to Installing. Is there an "Owner's Guide Book"?
