The FlexStep stairlift is designed to function both as an ordinary staircase and as a wheelchair lift.

Developed and manufactured by Liftup, the FlexStep is flexible and equally useful for pedestrians and wheelchair users alike.

FlexStep is an innovative 2-in-1 solution and saves space compared to installing both a flight of stairs and a separate lift.

 

FlexStep has many configuration and installation options, making it easy to integrate your new stairlift into the existing surroundings.

FlexStep is the perfect solution for both wheelchair users and pedestrians, giving easy access between levels and is particularly useful where space is tight and there would not be room to install both a lift and a flight of stairs.

“We needed both a staircase and a lift but did not have room for both. We found a solution working as both – a FlexStep where the staircase is converted into a lift, whenever the user activates the function.”

- Jesper Wegener
H+ Arkitekter, conversion of the City Court of Copenhagen

H+ Arkitekter focuses on creating accessibility solutions which appear as a natural part of the building’s interior design. In this way, they create humane accessibility solutions for users with physical disabilities as they will not be “exhibited” on a hideous platform or have to gain access by secondary routes around the building.
