Terrys Lifts have over 35 years’ experience in providing solutions to domestic and public access problems. Our skilled staff and engineers offer a full project management service taking care of all surveying, design, building and electrical work. From initial consultation through to installation, you can rely on our helpful customer service. Our products are proven to be reliable, safe and easy to use and are the preferred choice of many health care professionals.
The Harmony lift is the ultimate solution to regaining the freedom of your home, allowing you to travel between floors smoothly, quietly and safely. By choosing the Harmony lift, you’re choosing the largest standard internal car-size on the market. With the smallest space-saving footprint available, we pride ourselves on the high emphasis we place on creating safe and easy to use products. The lift is operated via a simple to use wall console which allows you to move the lift between floors. Our unique design conceals the hydraulic mechanism in the left-hand guide leg, ensuring no unsightly components on display on either floor. There is no need for a lift shaft or floor pit to be installed. The lift is fully self-contained, with the minimum alteration to your living space. It is simple and economic to maintain. The Harmony lift is easy to access due to the low floor construction, even for self-propelled wheelchairs. The lift floor can be adjusted to accommodate any minor deflections in your house floor, thus easing access even further. The smooth, unobstructed interior of the carriage makes it easy to manoeuvre a wheelchair into position, and can be fitted with ergonomically design grab points to aid entering and leaving the lift. The internal controls are easy to access and allow you full control of the lift.
Thousands of our Harmony lifts are safely and reliably used in private homes every day of the year. The car is designed with colour-coordinated trims and lighting built into its sides providing a spill of flight to floor level when arriving in the darkened room as well as a pleasant ambient lighting level for the user inside the car. As the lift comfortably arrives in the upstairs position, the underpan seals the aperture providing a fire and smoke barrier. No other lift features our half hour rating of fire protection to the aperture, whether the lift is parked in the upstairs or downstairs position. On exiting the lift, the control station on the wall allows you the option to send the lift back to the downstairs position, freeing up space in the bedroom. In most cases, the original floor covering can be built in to the closing lift canopy, maintaining the look and feel of your home.
The safety of the user and those around the lift is of paramount importance. The full underpan is designed as a safe edge meaning that any contact as the lift travels down, will immediately stop the lift. The neat, unobtrusive canopy prevents the lift rising or traveling any further if any object is causing obstruction. All leading edges are a touch-sensitive and will also halt the lift if contact is made. If there is a power failure, the lift has a battery backup allowing it to descend safely.
Terry Group provides a complete range of Harmony through floor lifts, from the space-saving seated compact up to the largest car of this lift type available on the market today. Our highly skilled, courteous survey engineers provide a complete installation service. We will survey your home and recommend a suitable location for the lift, create the aperture in the floor, fit the power supply and fully instruct you on operation and safety features. All of this is provided in a few days to a program agreed with you. The radio remote call stations are easily positioned in the most user-friendly location with no unsightly trunking to and from the lift. We pride ourselves on our excellent, comprehensive after care support. We also provide a lift relocation or removal service including making good the aperture if required. Extended warranties are available.
So, when choosing your lift, choose Terry Lifts, with complete confidence in our customer care to solve your access problems.
