Evaccess are one of the fifty finalists shortlisted for the ‘Tomorrows Health and Safety Award 2019'

The piece of kit that was nominated is the Stairmate SA-S Powered Stair Climber; one of our most popular due to its versatility, ease of access and affordability. The SA-S is a compact but powerful Stair Climber which can take a maximum load of 150kg both up and down stairs making it an ideal access and egress solution for many buildings both commercial and domestic.

One of the main benefits of the SA-S is the fact that the user’s wheelchair is what goes onto the climber before using the stairs. In short, the user does not need to transfer from their existing chair into a seat attachment; their whole chair straps in and is taken with them. Many users have said that they felt like this was a more dignified approach as they have often faced situations where they would have to be lifted up into a piece of equipment and their chair would have to be bought up afterwards. In an emergency, it would also ensure that the user’s chair didn’t get left behind during an evacuation. One of the main policies during a fire is that nobody may re-enter the building until it is deemed safe. If the user’s chair was left behind, it may get damaged or destroyed leaving the user without a chair.
