FAQ

Are Stair Climbers' Products Easy To Operate?

YES. We provide instructions on how to use the stair-climbers. We also provide a live Zoom instructional video which is recorded and we provide access to. We recommend people start using at a slow speed, without a load and then gradually increase the load. Most people can operate any of the stair-climbers safely and efficiently with 15-30 minutes practice.

All Types Of Stairs?

YES, more or less. Staircases should be at least 60 cm wide. If there is a landing, the minimum dimension should be at least 1.1m, and if it is a return stairwell, at least 1.2m. Choose your stair climber to match your stairs. The paddle-style cannot be used on a tight spiral staircase.  The track style can only be used on a straight staircase or a straight staircase with a return stairwell. The stair climbers will work on different surfaces eg wood, concrete, steel mesh, etc. They will also work on carpet but cannot be used on loose carpet.

Do The Batteries Last A Long Time?

YES.  You can go up or down up to 1500 steps on one charge – that is about 50 flights of stairs. The stair-climbers may do fewer steps on slow speed setting. There is no need for a second battery with any Stair Climbers device!

Ongoing Maintenance?

Not really an issue. Stair-climbers use brushless motors with lithium batteries which should give years of trouble-free use. The motor is in a sealed unit (IPX4 rating making it rainproof) and does not require any maintenance as this would break its waterproof seal. Stair Climbers are built to last and do not require any other maintenance, other than ensuring nothing is loose. If something is loose, do not use until the bolt, nut or screw is tightened. Proprietary tools and specialist technicians are not required. On the Apollo, Kris and Jacob the rubber tracks may need adjustment as they stretch. An Allen key is supplied to make this adjustment and instructions are in the manual.
