TiLite goes metric

Friday, December 23, 2016

PASCO, Wash. – Starting Jan. 16, TiLite wheelchairs will have metric nuts, bolts and fasteners. The change will affect lead times: 10 days for X Series and Twist, and 20 days for T Series and Z Series. Custom chairs will be scheduled based on complexity. Parts orders will be shipped within 48 hours. Imperial parts will be kept on hand for five years. The change will not affect measurements, tires, casters, armrests, hangers, bearings or upholstery. There will be a revised warranty for metric chairs: complete replacement within the first year, and metric frame kit, including all parts needed to make chair complete, after the first year. TiLite will also offer free metric tool kits with every order until March 1, 2017.
