Safe, Low Voltage Battery Power
MediTek stairlifts use inherently safe, low voltage battery power (24vdc) that ensures continued operation even in the event of a power failure. Simple connection of the charger to a domestic power outlet overcomes the need for a disruptive installation.
Control of your MediTek stairlift can be effected either by use of a simple, user-friendly joystick located in the arm of your choice, or alternatively the stairlift can be controlled remotely by means of an infra-red hand-held transmitter that requires no unsightly control boxes or cables.
Whisper Quiet Operation
As the MediTek 160 is powered by a DC electric motor and the drive is achieved via a rack and pinion system, the stairlift is extremely quiet during operation.
The MediTek stairlift contains electronic circuits to control the ride, this means that there is no jolting or lurching of the stairlift as it starts or ends its travel. This gives a smooth ride throughout, adding to the feeling of safety and stability.
Fold Up Seat Base, Footrest and Arm Rests
The seat base, footrest and arm rests of the MediTek 160 fold up to ensure that the stairlift is compact when not in use, ensuring minimum intrusion in to the staircase.
As standard the MediTek 160 comes complete with touch sensitive safety covers which are designed to prevent trapping hazards. Should the stairlift make contact with any obstruction on the stairwell, in either direction, movement of the covers will result in the immediate suspension of travel in that direction. The stairlift will still travel in the opposite direction to allow the obstruction to be removed.
Electronic and Mechanical Braking Systems
The MediTek 160 is fitted as standard with electronic and mechanical fail-safe braking systems to ensure that an uncontrolled decent of the stairlift can not occur.
The weight capacity of the 160 model is 160kgs and rated for one person only at a stair angle of 45 degrees, alternative weight capacities are available.
Quick and Simple Installation
The MediTek 160 can be installed in less than one hour; this ensures that minimum disruption occurs on the day of installation.
The MediTek 160 includes as standard its own unique ICCC charging system; this is an exclusive feature of the MediTek range of stairlifts. Unlike other battery operated stairlifts, the MediTek 160 will remain on charge regardless of the park position, this means that if you want to leave the stairlift anywhere on the rail this does not present a problem, it also ensures that your stairlift is always charged and ready for use.
Visual Diagnostic Display
The MediTek 160 has a digital diagnostic display mounted on the upper face of the unit. In the unlikely event of a fault occurring a simple telephone call to you stairlift provider can determine if an engineer call-out is necessary.
Below to the visual diagnostic display is a rocker switch, this can be used to isolate the power supply to the lift, yet it will still allow the stairlift to accept charge.
A large range of optional equipment is available to the MediTek 160 stairlift, including Platforms, Hinges, Seat-footrest linkages, Powered swivel seats etc. Information about these accessories can be found in the accessories section of this site.
