Understanding Stairlifts:

Stairlifts are motorised chairs attached to a rail that is fixed to the stairs, allowing individuals to move between floors effortlessly. They come in various designs to suit different staircase types, including straight, curved, and narrow stairs. Modern stairlifts are designed with safety features such as seat belts, sensors, and smooth starts and stops, ensuring a secure and comfortable ride.

Choosing the Right Stairlift:

Before diving into the installation process, it’s essential to select the right stairlift for your needs. Factors to consider include:

  1. Staircase Type: Determine whether your staircase is straight, curved, or narrow, as this will dictate the type of stairlift required.
  2. Weight Capacity: Ensure the stairlift can accommodate the weight of the user comfortably.
  3. Space Availability: Consider the available space at the top and bottom of the stairs for parking the stairlift when not in use.
  4. Features: Look for additional features such as swivel seats, adjustable height, and remote controls for convenience and comfort.

Installation Process:

Once we’ve assessed your home and chosen the appropriate stairlift, it’s time to install the lift.
