At the end of either an ascent or descent are Limit Sensors installed and located on the track rail. A battery operated stair lift will come to a 'soft stop' due to the limit sensors . These Limit Sensors ensure that the stair lift always stops in the correct position.

  • The stairlift should have Limit sensors to ensure that the stairlift always stops in the correct position.
  • These are fitted on the rail at the top and bottom and make sure that the stair lift always stops in the correct position on the staircase.
  • Some stair lifts have a Start / Stop Action, so at the end of every journey there will be no jolt.
