Bruno Elan Indoor Straight-Rail Stairlift

Meeting additional standards from around the world, the Bruno Elan Straight Rail Stairlift is the new benchmark for Style, Performance and Affordability. Building on two decades of Bruno research, the Elan can transport up to 300 lbs with ease and in total comfort.

Sleek Efficiency

Quiet and Compact
Bruno’s Elan is the ideal stairlift for today and tomorrow – rack and pinion drive delivers a ride which is smooth and quiet, while a handsome rail hides all mechanical components. In addition, the seat, armrests and footrest all fold up into a compact unit – family and friends will have no problem using the stairs.

Elan offers a long list of standard features that are usually found
only on more expensive units. The simplicity in design makes the Elan easier and less costly to install than other stairlifts.

Durable Operation

Safety First
A dual braking system makes the Elan one of the safest stairlifts in the world. The electromagnetic braking system is complemented by a self-locking gear box and overspeed brake which completely ensures your safety. Safety sensors on the foot plate and carriage stop the unit whenever an obstruction is encountered.

Consistent Power
The Elan uses two 12-volt batteries that are powered by a low-profile charger that plugs into any household outlet. A continuous charge along the rail is provided through a full-length charge strip. Access to upstairs and downstairs is never an issue, even when there is a power outage.

Custom Solutions

Custom Stairlift solution for Gavin

Mr. Gavin B. approached Western Elevator Ltd. in 2009 with a challenging request.

Could Western Elevator provide a stairlift solution for a man with no arms. This had never been done before, so we contacted our stairlift supplier Bruno Independent Living Aids with the request. Most manufacturers would have said, sorry, no, our product cannot be changed.

Bruno was different. They had an engineer call us back to tackle this challenge. It took six months, BUT they made several major changes to the stairlift design.

The controls for a stairlift are usually a rocker switch on one of the armrests. Bruno suggested that we put the controls on a new special padded control on the back rest cushion at shoulder height. Gavin would simply lean back and press the control with his shoulder. Bruno then put in a power swivel so that the chair would automatically swivel at the top.

Gavin was pleasantly surprised and very happy with the solution. Gavin has been using his new stairlift without a problem and has complete access to his entire house again.

A big thanks to Bruno and Western Elevator from Gavin.
