Depending on your staircase, you may require a stairlift that can travel around corners, up spiral staircases or across intermediate flat landings. A curved stairlift eliminates the need for multiple straight stairlifts by providing a continuous solution that travels seamlessly from the bottom of a staircase to the top.
Any staircase that significantly bends or incorporates a landing will require a curved stairlift. We work with selected, highly recommended companies that can specifically design a stairlift to suit your individual staircase.
A curved stairlift will therefore require a precise measurement and fitting by an experienced professional to ensure that your rail is custom made for a safe and reliable fit.
Due to the special requirements of a curved stairlift such as the rails having to be custom made - the manufacturing time will often be slightly longer as well as being more expensive.
However, just because your stairs are not completely straight this does not necessarily mean that you’ll need a curved stairlift. Often you can combine two straight stairlifts with a platform - which is often cheaper than the curved option.
