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

I just wanted to say thank for the good service! The technician that came out was a great guy and we really appreciate the good service. The chair lift is now working great!

It was a job well done and it really helps my husband.

Last week I joined the list of satisfied EHLS customers. As the owner of a material handling products company that sells and installs storage racks, overhead bridge cranes, and other products, I understand and appreciate the important role our employees play in the everyday service of our company especially those who have direct contact with customers. You probably already realize the important role employees like Will plays in your company. I observed Will installing the stairlift at my son’s house. He was very professional and very helpful in demonstrating the chair to my son. Just thought you might be interested in hearing from one of your customers.

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!”

They are very good. The stairlift is excellent! They are efficient and do not make a mess. If you ask questions, they answer it! You could not ask for more.
