If you’re considering a stairlift for your home, you may have come across the term ASL technology. But what exactly is ASL, and how does it work? In this blog post, we’ll explore the ins and outs and how it enhances your stairlift experience.

What is ASL Technology?

ASL stands for Advanced Swivel and Levelling, a patented technology developed by Access BDD, found in the Flow X stairlift. Enabling the Flow X stairlift to rotate and stay perfectly level while in motion. As you travel up or down the stairs, the Flow X stairlift adjusts its position to keep you in the safest and most comfortable position.

How Does ASL Technology Work?

ASL technology utilises sensors and advanced mechanics to ensure a smooth and level ride on your stairlift. As you start your journey on the Flow X stairlift, the ASL technology detects the angle of the stairs and adjusts the seat accordingly. Ensuring you remain level and stable throughout the entire ride, regardless of the incline or decline of the staircase. One of the key benefits is that it keeps the Flow X stairlift perfectly level while it rotates during travel. This is particularly useful for staircases that are narrow or have tight turns. Allowing the Flow X stairlift to easily navigate these challenging spaces, providing a smooth and safe ride.
