Which Types of Stairlifts Can You Buy?

Stairlifts can be made to fit many different homes and staircases. The great thing about this kind of installation is that it’s much more cost-effective than moving house or downsizing to a bungalow. The stairs can be hard to navigate for those with mobility-related conditions, however, stairlifts can fit perfectly into your home.

In this blog, we discuss the different types of stairlifts that you can purchase.

Straight stairlifts

If you have a standard staircase that doesn’t have any corners or turns then a regular, straight stairlift is the best option. These are installed on the stair or wall next to the staircase and move up and down in a straight line between each floor. Since most homes are built with this kind of staircase they are fairly easy to install with a short wait time.

Curved stairlifts

If your staircase does have bends and turns then a curved stairlift is a more suitable option. The tracks are bent to fit the exact layout of the staircase so you can move up and down safely. These types of stairlifts will take a little more time to install as the dimensions are used to create a bespoke product. The installation team will assess your staircase before creating a bespoke product and installing it to fit your stairs exactly.

Reconditioned stairlifts

You don’t have to buy a stairlift brand new. Reconditioned stairlifts are pre-owned or pre-used lifts that have been reconditioned by a reputable supplier. Reconditioned products are always tested to ensure they meet safety standards and perform well. This means that they are completely safe to use but you can benefit from purchasing something more affordable than brand new models.
