A straight stairlift is designed with a rail which cannot be bent, the track which the stairlift motor travels on is designed to run from the bottom of the stairs to the top step only.
The footrest of the stairlift will stop level with the top step. A straight stairlift can’t run onto the landing. The user, upon reaching the top step would then swivel the seat of the stairlift so they can put their feet safely onto the landing to get off the seat.
A straight stairlift is at least half the price of a curved stairlift because the rails are simply cut to size and can be produced at a fraction of the cost of manufacturing a bespoke curved stairlift rail. Additionally the technology required to make a stairlift motor work on a curved rail adds greatly to the cost.
A curved track stairlift can turn around bends in your stairs and can travel along landings and half landings. They are made according to the dimensions of your staircase and can be fitted to the inside or the outside bend. The rail is bespoke to your staircase which means they are more expensive to buy than a straight stairlift. Our expert surveyors can help you decide which curved lift is most suitable for your requirements.
As an independent stairlift company, we can choose from the whole market to ensure we specify the best stairlift for you. This is particularly important if you have a very narrow staircase as a lot of the manufacturers simply won’t have a suitable product for your stairs.
We have a large range of pre owned stair lifts for straight and curved stairs. Buying a used stairlift can save you a lot of money compared to the cost of a new one. If you have a curved staircase then you will still have to have a new ‘made to measure’ rail manufactured but the cost saving could still be as much as £1000.
If you have stairs leading to your front door or steps in your garden an outdoor stairlift may be the answer. They are weatherproofed for external use and there are versions available for straight and curved stairs. All outdoor stair lifts are supplied with a cover for the chair and motor to help protect them from the elements.
