All stairlifts are operated by pressing or holding the large, robust toggle switch in the direction of travel. Located at the end of the seat arm it can be easily operated by the hand or arm and leaves the arm rest clear to provide unhindered support when getting on or off the seat.
Stairlift tracks fall into two basic categories: straight and curved; it can be a little confusing to know which type you need for your staircase. If your staircase is straight and does not turn any corners between floors there are 3 stairlift systems for you to choose from. We also do curved stairlifts for staircases that turn corners. If you have limited knee or hip movement you may find a perch seat more comfortable. We have a perch seat option on straight stairlift system and are one of the few companies to offer a perch seat solution on a curved stairlift system.
Your stairlift will also come with a seat belt as standard for additional peace of mind. Our easy release retractable seat belt gives the added flexibility of allowing you to fasten it to one side or centrally, whichever is easier for you or other users. Choosing a stairlift is about understanding your needs and wants and selecting the most appropriate solution.
All stairlifts have safety sensors on the power pack and footplate. These are designed to stop the lift if it meets any obstruction. Once stopped it can only be moved in the opposite direction to the obstruction. All stairlifts have a diagnostic display so that you can monitor the status of your stairlift.
During this assessment some measurements may be taken to ensure the stairlift chosen is suitable for the user. There will also be some simple questions to see which would be the best side to place the controls, what sort of seat belt would best suit the users and to ascertain which features would be required now and in the future.
Stairlift seats and systems do vary between manufacturers. Whilst it is rare that a stairlift is not suitable, carrying out a User Assessment is advisable. This allows your supplier to not only double check that the dimensions of the lift are suitable for the user and the location, but it also allows them to specify which side controls should go and to discuss the possibility of adding powered features to make using the stairlift even easier. These may not be needed now but could be of huge benefit in the long term.
When you have a curve in your stairway, a mid-way landing or a spiral staircase your only option is a curved stairlift. They cost more than a straight stairlift because the rails have to be custom manufactured to suit your home. There are hundreds of permutations for a curved stairlift rail and a detailed survey must be done to get the designed rail to fit correctly. Just as with straight stairlifts they are battery powered so they can even be used in the event of a power cut. The batteries are always charged ready for use as when the stairlift is parked they are constantly charging.
Stairlift prices can depend on a number of factors as it’s not just our stairlift rails that are made to measure but our seats can also be tailored to your needs. To establish your stairlift cost our consultants have a number of things to consider. All the factors below will be carefully measured to ensure they can give you an accurate specification and stairlift price quotation. Once these factors that affect pricing have been considered, our consultant can give you a accurate quotation for your stairlift that will include all preparation work and installation.
