• Platinum Donate Stairlift

    Arden Road Social Club

    Yorkshire-based Platinum Stairlifts are donating one of their life-changing products to the Arden Road Social Club in Halifax.

    Arden Road is a hub of the community, providing space and facilities for local charities, fundraising and live music. Many of the events held at Arden Road are in support of disabled and disadvantaged children, with conditions ranging from deafness and blindness, to mental and physical disabilities.

    The club had a stairlift for many years – not a Platinum model – which allowed visitors to access the upstairs rooms and facilities. Unfortunately, this lift stopped working some months back, resulting in vital fundraising events being cancelled, as many of the children are unable to climb stairs unaided.

    With little money available to source a replacement lift, Arden Road approached Platinum Stairlifts, who are well-known for providing high-quality, affordable products. Platinum sent one of their qualified assessors to see what was required and find out a bit more about the Club and the important work they do there. When it came time to provide a quote for the stairlift, Platinum decided to supply and install one of their Horizon stairlifts, free of charge!

    The Platinum Horizon is the perfect solution for straight staircases, comprising a single rail which is mounted to the treads of the stairs. For staircases which feature corners or integral landings, Platinum manufacture the Platinum Curve, a twin rail which is hand-built to fit perfectly to the layout of the stairs.

    The Platinum Horizon at Arden Road will also feature the exclusive ERGO seat, which features a digital diagnostic display in the arm, an easy-to-use ergonomic joystick and a powered swivel, for easy access onto the landing. The ERGO comes in a range of colours and is available on both the Platinum Curve and Horizon lifts.

    Platinum CEO, Rod Blacka said, “Platinum has always been proud to be a Yorkshire manufacturer so when we were approached by Arden Road with a specific need for a Stairlift it was a pleasure to be able to help. Platinum Stairlifts are installed in individuals’ homes around the world but this one stairlift will benefit hundreds of disadvantaged people in Halifax.”

    The lift is being installed as part of a complete refurbishment of the Arden Road Social Club, in conjunction with Tesco Community Fund.
