How do stair lifts work?
The chair climbs safely up and down the stairs using a battery operated motor in the base. The battery is charged either at the top or bottom of the stairs. The chair moves along a rail, fixed firmly to the side of the stairs. The chair seat and arms can be safely folded away when not in use and the chair can be tailored to your individual size needs to provide the most comfortable experience.
Different kinds of stairs
Your stair type will govern whether you need a straight or curved rail for your stair lift. Straight staircases offer the most straightforward installation, as there are no bends in the rail. Staircases that require a curved rail include: Spiral staircases, curved staircases with fan, curved staircase with quarter landing and curved staircase with half landing. All of those staircase configurations can be fitted with a stair lift.
