About Stairlifts

A Stairlift, also called a Chairlift, is a lift that that travels on a track along the edge of a staircase. Because stairlifts carry riders over the existing stairs, they are very easy to install and don’t interfere with regular use of the stairs. Stairlifts/Chairlifts are a GREAT way to make stairs safe and easy.

Straight Stairlifts: Because the majority of staircases are straight, the industry standard is straight with the following features:

  • Battery Powered: Most chairlifts are battery powered to ensure that the lift will still work in a power outage. The lift is plugged into a standard outlet and trickle charges the batteries when the lift is not in use. The batteries will support 25+ round trips without a problem before being re-charged.
  • Track: Lifts typically come with 16 feet of track which is plenty for a standard staircase. A longer track is available for taller staircases.
  • Installation: A stairlift can be installed quickly and easily without any changes to your home. The lift track is supported entirely by the treads of the stairs and does not touch adjacent walls. Our experienced, factory trained technicians can usually complete an installation in an afternoon.

Curved Stairlifts: More complex stairways, with landings and curved stairs, can be fitted with a custom-made curved stairlift. A curved stairlift will be precisely measured and when installed will fit the stairs like a glove. Curved chairlifts are more costly than a straight stairlift because they are custom-made, but are still far less expensive than the alternatives of moving or adding a first-floor addition on a house.

Indoors/Outdoors: Chairlifts are also designed and manufactured for outdoor staircases. Outdoor chair lifts are designed with marine components to function in inclement weather.

Testimonials

Called to say that the curved stairlift that I purchased is working great for my mom and I wanted to let you know how great the installers were. They were professional and they actually took the time to explain to my mom how to use it. It was the best retail experience that I’ve had in years!”

I would like to thank EHLS and Mike for the wonderful stair lift and the great experience with all of you. Mike was so kind and helpful in deciding on what lift would work best as well as providing other suggestions for home equipment. My father, Robert, is doing great with his mobility, but relies on the lift and grab bars in the bathroom. Thanks again!

I am so glad I called EHLS when I was looking to get stairlifts in my mother’s home. From start to finish they were professional, punctual and communicated with me every step of the way. I asked the tech that came to remove my mom’s stairlifts after she passed to communicate my sincere appreciation back to the company. THANK YOU for everything you did for us. I HIGHLY recommend EHLS for stairlifts!

The stair lift has been great and your technician (Jose) showed me a lot of things that will help me use the lift properly.

EHLS was very knowledgeable about chairlifts. The guy who installed it did a great job and was very patient and knowledgable
