What is a stairlift?
A stairlift is a mechanical device for lifting people up and down stairs. For sufficiently wide stairs, a rail is mounted to the treads of the stairs. A chair or lifting platform is attached to the rail. A person on the chair or platform is lifted as the chair moves along the rail.
Straight rail stairlifts
These are the most common type of stairlifts, used with straight stairs and have a straight rail (track) which is fixed to the steps of the staircase. Straight stairlifts have a shorter installation and manufacturing time because they require fewer customizations. This generally means that they are also cheaper than other types, as the only variable among different installations is the actual length of the track.
Curved rail stairlifts
These are a little more unusual than those with straight rails because they have to be manufactured to suit the individual staircase (curved stairs). Curved rails have advanced by the creating of a rail system that fits together as a track system. These are then built at our customers premises following the curve of the stairs.
Outdoor Stairlifts come with seats, perches, footplates or platforms. They are similar to indoor stairlifts but with improved weatherproofing.
