MediTek D160 Deluxe Key Features
Your MediTek D160 Deluxe is indeed without doubt remarkable! Explore below and discover for yourself.
The easy-to-use joystick offers finger light control. All you need to do is push it to the left or right to move the lift in the direction of travel you wish to go.
Call and Send Units
In addition to the joystick, you can also move the lift using one of the two call and send units that we supply with MediTek stairlifts.
Manual / Powered Swivel
Once the lift has reached the top of the stairs you can use one of two options to turn your chair to face or be level with the landing. This allows you to disembark the chair safely and with ease.
Manual Swivel Lever
Simply lift the lever up at the end of your journey to turn. This simple step locks at 40 and 80 degrees.
Powered Swivel (optional extra)
On arrival at the top of the stairs, release the joystick then re-apply in the upwards direction of travel and your chair will automatically turn.
ICS Diagnostic Display
This innovative display provides instant operational information on the lift functions, the current status of the lift and when a service is due. It is a great technology for both you as a user and our stairlift engineers.
The Deluxe D160 range has three seatbelt options, the lap belt (standard), the retractable (optional extra) or the five-point harness (optional extra).
Child / Junior Seats
Child and Junior seats are also available on request.
Continuous Charging Strip
The strip, running the length of the rail, ensures that the batteries are constantly being charged. So no matter where you park the chair on the stairs, your lift will always be available for use - even if the mains power fails for a while.
Footrest to Seat Folding Linkage (available as an optional extra)
This package enables your chair’s footrest to fold away neatly when you lift your seat base keeping the staircase open and hazard free.
Powered Hinge (available as an optional extra)
If you have stairs located next to a door or passageway, we can offer you a powered-hinge.
A powered hinge enables the rail to automatically fold up and stay out of the way at the end of your journey: eliminating a potential tripping hazard and ensuring even greater safety in your home.
We can offer two hinge weights: 120kg and 160kg. If you choose the hinge option, to charge your stairlift, you will need to park the lift on the main rail.
Telescopic Seat Post
Our seat posts can be adjusted to ensure the chair is set right for your personal requirements.
Seat Width Options (available as an optional extra)
With the D160 Delux, you can choose from three seat widths, 430mm (standard), 500mm and 550mm to make the stairlift the best fit for you.
Safety Features Of The MediTek D160 Delux
Safety for stairlift users is arguably the most important consideration of any stairlift design. That's why the MediTek D160 Deluxe doesn't disappoint. Five important safety add-ons are included, as detailed below.
Safety Feature 1: Pressure-Sensitive Surfaces
Located on the footrest and carriage, the pressure sensitive surfaces stop the lift when they sense any obstruction.
Safety Feature 2: Emergency Holding Button
For added safety an emergency holding button is supplied. When pressed the lift will stop instantly.
Safety Feature 3: Electromagnetic Brake
The electromagnetic braking system is linked to the motor and gearbox thereby ensuring that the stairlift will remain parked when stopped.
Safety Feature 4: Barrier Arm
Your MediTek D160 Deluxe stairlift will not operate unless the downside arm is down and in place.
Safety Feature 5: Key Switch
A key switch is fitted to every lift allowing you to turn the power of the lift on or off.
