What our experts say about the Scout

Rich Selah

“The Scout is a great chair for straight stairs, especially basement stairs with a door at the top. It’s a straight forward, affordable option but still a quality lift with some of Stannah’s best safety features. And for people who have hardwood floors, the Walnut upholstery is a perfect match!”

How Much Does an Scout Stairlift Cost?

With a fixed price for a stairlift, you’ll pay … more than you should. Because every house is different. Every set of stairs is different. And this means our prices differ for every stairlift we sell.

A Stannah expert will visit your home to see exactly what you need. And based on this, we can give you an accurate, individualized quote. The quote is free. It doesn’t have any obligations attached. And it makes sure you don’t pay a cent more than you should.

Designed for Safety, Security and Style

Ideal for basement stairs

With its narrow rail and simplified design, the Scout is a great fit for basement stairs with a door at the top.

Easy exit at the top

When the stairlift reaches the top of the stairs, it swivels to safely face the landing and protect you from a long fall. To make it easier to move your feet onto it, the footrest comes close to the top landing. The footrest also folds away when not in use.

Quality vinyl upholstery

The Scout’s Walnut colored, vinyl upholstery matches well with hardwood floors and is easy to clean, so your Scout will always look great in your home!

Folding footrest and arms

The arms and footrest fold away, leaving plenty of walking space on the staircase for those not using the stairlift.

On/Off switch on the armrest

An easily accessible On/Off switch on the armrest prevents unauthorized or accidental use of the stairlift.

Seat belt for added security

The Scout is equipped with a center-clasp seat belt that can be used to secure the user or other cargo, such as laundry or groceries.

Easy to control

The control unit for the Scout is built into the armrest. You can sit naturally and comfortably and use your finger or the side of your hand to start the stairlift moving.

Remote controls

All Stannah stairlifts are able to detect obstructions on the stairs. If there is something in your way? The stairlift will stop immediately.

All Stannah stairlifts run on powerful batteries that trickle-charge when the stairlift is not in use. What if the power goes out? Depending on the length of the staircase, the stairlift will continue to work for 10 – 20 return journeys, but will beep to let you know it’s not charging and to remind you to temporarily turn the stairlift off.

The stairlift connects with regular 110 Volt household power outlets. Ideally, we will use one within 10’ of the top or bottom of the stairs. It is best if an outlet is permanently live. This means the stairlift is always able to charge without being turned off by accident.

Battery lifespan: typically 3 - 5 years

Although Stannah use batteries that are readily available – they are commonly found in alarm systems etc. – they must be replaced by trained technicians. This ensures the electronics inside the stairlift are not damaged.

Like all Stannah Stairlfits, The Scout is equipped with an over-speed governor to ensure that your lift always runs at the proper speed
The Scout’s batteries recharge automatically so your lift is always ready for use, ensuring multiple trips up and downstairs during a power outage.
The footrest and armrest fold up, so you can back into the chair, unobstructed.
Manual Swivel levers turn the chair so that the user can disembark in the safest position possible.
