Straight & Curved Stairlifts

All of our straight & curved stairlifts (new & reconditioned) are fitted with a soft start motor, which is operated by a smooth-action joystick. You have complete control of the stairlift at all times.

The most popular straight stairlifts that we sell are the Stannah Starla, the Stannah Saxon 420, the Meditek 160 Stairlift, the Minivator Simplicity+, the Bruno Elite and the Thyssen Homeglide.

Straight stairlift rails are fitted directly to the stair tread and the track runs from the ground floor to the top step and is designed to fit as close to the wall as possible. At the top, the rail can run over the top so you can dismount easily, to do this you will have to have a curved rail stairlift which will be much more expensive.

Alternatively, in a situation where room is more limited, the stairlift seat can be swivelled as far as 90 degrees allowing the user to safely step onto the top landing.

It’s also worth noting that all of our stairlifts are fitted with obstruction sensors that automatically stop the lift, should they come into contact with an object, e.g. a child’s toy.  All lifts are lockable with a key.

Stairlifts are ideal for home use: from a narrow, curved staircase in a small cottage to a home with multiple stopping-off points.  We’ve even installed stairlifts onto garden patios and yachts!
