Choosing Residential Stairlifts

Residential stairlifts fall into two basic categories; straight and curved. It can be confusing to know which type you need. Don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as you might think and we’re there to help and advise you every step of the way.

Please visit our new website dedicated to residential stairlift installation, servicing and rental.

Straight Stairlifts

If your staircase consists of one complete flight of stairs leading to a top landing or hallway with no middle landing, you may require a straight stairlift. This stairlift is the simplest solution and uses a single rail attached to your staircase. The slimline design ensures there is plenty of space left for other members of the family to use the stairs.

Curved Stairlifts

If your staircase has turns, intermediate landings, or limited space at the top or bottom, you may require a curved stairlift. Using a unique modular system, accurate measurements enable a stairlift to be made in days not weeks.

Stairlift Facts

  • Stairlifts fit directly to the stairs, not the wall
  • A straight stairlift is usually fitted within 3 working days and takes around 1.5hrs to fit
  • A curved stairlift is usually fitted within 5 working days and takes between 4-5 hours to fit
  • A survey of your stairs will need to be carried out which takes around 20 minutes.

We offer installation, maintenance and repairs of straight and curved residential stairlifts in Derbyshire, Chesterfield, Mansfield and Nottingham.
