What is a Stairlift?
Stairlifts enable people with mobility challenges to move freely between floors in a multilevel home or office while being seated in a chair. The Stairlift moves along a track attached to the stairs.
Being able to continue to live in the home you love even after an illness or injury limits your mobility, is priceless. However, this could prove difficult if you have a multilevel home. For people with mobility challenges, stairs are particularly limiting, not to mention fall hazards. Stairlifts, also known as Stair Lifts, Stair-Lifts, Chair Lifts, Stair Climbers, etc., can provide easy access to multiple floors in comfort and safety.
What Are The Different Stairlift Options?
Stairlifts can be installed in stairs of virtually any shape or size. Regardless of the shape or size of the stairs, you can expect our stairlifts to be easy to use and provide a smooth ride every time.
A variety of options are available to customize your stairlift for personalized comfort. Options include choice of seat size, footrests, and more. Each stairlift chair has it’s own controls that allow you to move up or down. Additionally, remote controls can be used to move the chair lift along the track to bring the chair to where you are.

Indoor Stairlifts and Outdoor Stairlifts
Indoor Stairlifts enable users to travel upstairs and downstairs inside the house. Outdoor Stairlifts can be installed to provide access to various areas outside the house such as the deck, patio, the garden, etc.
Straight and Curved Stairlifts
Stairlifts move along a track which is attached to one side of the stairs. If you only have one flight of stairs, then you may only need a single straight track. If you have multiple flights of stairs with landings in between, or if you have spiral or other shaped stairs that don’t follow a straight line, your stairlift tracks have to be installed on a curved path along the shape of the stairs. These are called Customed Curved Stairlifts.
