Stairlifts To Fit Your Requirements
Straight stairlifts are the most common type of stairlift and are designed to travel up and down a straight staircase with ease. Whereas curved stairlifts may require structural changes, a straight stairlift requires none and can be installed in a relatively quick time.
Stairlifts are not a one-size fits all system. Depending on the layout of your premise, your stairlift may need to go around a curve at the end of a bannister or climb up a spiral staircase.

What Are The Benefits Of Installing A Stairlift?
There are a host of reasons why you should install a stairlift in hospitals, care homes, or any other public facility:
1. Independence for Physical Disabilities
Mobility issues are not age-exclusive and can affect anyone, whether it’s a resident or visitor at a care home, a family member visiting a patient in the hospital, or someone attending a second-floor public forum. Installing a stairlift helps bring a sense of independence and pride back to those needing extra mobility support.
Our ergonomically-designed stairlifts are as easy to use as possible, with side hand control buttons that operate the stairlift to go up and down seamlessly. Safety comes first on our stairlifts, proper seatbelts and side armrests to the chair to make whoever is on-board feel as safe and comfortable as possible.
3. Time Efficient
Time is important, and in a care home or hospital, it’s more important. Having a stairlift doesn’t only save time for those using it, but also for carers or other support workers that may normally be required to assist in moving from the ground floor to above.
4. Perfect For A Variety Of Buildings
Our stairlifts are designed with frequent use in mind, making them ideal for commercial and public buildings including care homes, hospitals, town halls, and more. Regardless of your stairway setup, we have covered stairlifts suitable for both straight staircases and spiral staircases, allowing you to provide anyone in your facility with accommodating modes of transportation.
Our stairlifts are high quality, durable and made to hold a weight of up to 300 pounds. If you require a stairlift to hold more than this, please get in touch to discuss this with a member of the team.
A stairlift is useful for anyone that struggles with their mobility, whether from age, accident or medical conditions. Even if someone is fine when walking, travelling up and down stairs can become very difficult and tiring, so using a stairlift helps make this easier.
Stairlifts are designed with safety in mind. The typical weight limit of a stairlift is 300 pounds, however, if continually pushed to its limits, will require more frequent maintenance. If you require a stairlift for over 300 pounds, please get in touch with us and we can discuss custom and other options to best suit your requirements.
Once the staircase in question has been measured up, it can take between one to three hours to install a straight stairlift, and between four to five hours to install a curved stairlift, however, the length will have a significant impact on this.
A stairlift should be serviced at latest once every 12 months, however, if used frequently by many people, it is advisable to have it serviced more frequently.
Stairlifts tend to last up to 10 years, however, depending on the frequency of use, how often it has been serviced and how old the model is, it can be beneficial to replace it sooner.
A stairlift takes a passenger diagonally up a staircase, whereas a step lift is a platform going straight up to the next floor. A stairlift is typically designed for those using walking support such as a walking stick or frame, whereas a step lift is typically designed for people in wheelchairs as it makes for easier travel.
