Electric Riser Recliner Features & Options

Nothing epitomises ‘The Home of Relaxation’ more than the superb range of Sherborne Electric Care Recliners.

This is because we recognise that, for people who have difficulty getting in and out of conventional furniture, to have the opportunity to possess their very own Riser Recliner can make a huge difference to their freedom and quality of life.

So on these website pages you can view no less than 74 different models, all with fully lifting and fully reclining actions.

All designs offer the choice of the finest Dual Motor and Single Motor mechanisms and ten of these also offer a choice in size.

For added reassurance all ‘Lift & Rise’ Recliners meet British Standard BS 8474 for safety, strength, stability and durability.

Lift & Rise Features & Options

TouchStop Safety System

All new ‘Lift & Rise’ Recliners are now fitted with this unique safety system which will stop the Chair after any human contact on the metal action, to severely reduce the chances of entrapment.

Lift & Rise Features & Options

Quick-release handset

A quick-release handset is fitted as standard to prevent unauthorised use.

Lift & Rise Features & Options

Spring-loaded footrest

All designs are fitted with a spring-loaded footrest to reduce the risk of accidental entrapment under the footrest.

Lift & Rise Features & Options

Handset safety button design

All buttons are inset within the handset to reduce the possibility of inadvertent movement of the action by accidental pressure.

Lift & Rise Features & Options

Single-use emergency back-up

This allows one emergency operation of the Chair, returning it to the sitting position (batteries must be replaced after use).

Lift & Rise Features & Options

Multi-use battery back-up

For an additional cost this can be fitted to ensure continued use of the Recliner up to approximately 20 complete cycles of the action in the event of power failure. Highly recommended.

Lift & Rise Features & Options

LED power indicator

The transformer displays a green LED power light to show that power is reaching the Recliner.

Lift & Rise Features & Options

Backlit handset

All handset buttons light up when operated for ease of use even in the dark.

Lift & Rise Features & Options

Removable clip

Each handset is fitted with a useful clip which can be removed if required.

Lift and rise handset

Side pocket for right- or left-handed use

For your convenience we fit a generous side pocket on all ‘Lift & Rise’ Recliners and this and the handset can also be specified for left-handed use if you so wish.

Lift & Rise Features & Options

Lift-off backs

All 74 models are supplied with easy, lift-off backs to make the task of delivering into your home so much easier.

Lift & Rise Features & Options

Castors or Glides

All models are  fitted with four castors for ease of movement – front castors then lift away to ensure stability in raised positions. Alternatively, four glides can now be fitted for use on solid flooring.

The Single Motor and Dual Motor actions both lift and tilt the Recliner forwards so that getting in and out is the easiest thing imaginable.

Using the five-button handset, the sophisticated Dual Motor mechanism enables you to control the backrest and footrest independently to reach the exact position you want including a near-horizontal full sleeping position (needs a 38cm (15″) gap from the wall).

Using the ‘intelligent’ fifth button you can then easily return both the backrest and the footrest to the sitting position.

The smooth and easy Single Motor action uses the three-button handset, which enables the footrest to be fully raised before the back starts reclining. It also allows the sleeping position to be reached (less reclined than on Dual Motor designs) from a starting position 20cm (8″) from the wall. The ‘intelligent’ third button then returns you to the sitting position.

Both handsets feature a useful clip and are backlit for use in the dark.
