Curved Stair Lifts vs. Straight Stair Lifts

EHLS is an Expert in Straight & Curved Stairlifts

Curved Stairlifts vs. Two Straights: We often come across customers who are considering installing two straight stairlifts for a staircase with a 90-degree turn at a landing. While the two straights are less expensive, it is often quite unsafe. The user will have to transfer between chairs mid-way, there usually isn’t room for a caregiver at the landing, and the landing is usually very crowded and difficult to navigate for the user.

Curved Stairlifts: When a stairway changes direction we recommend a Custom Curved Chairlift. The rails of a curved stairlift are custom fabricated to exactly match the twists and turns of the stairs. Our suppliers can bend rails in amazing ways which allow us to install lifts on some very complicated stairways. The two curved stairlifts pictured here and those in our photo gallery give you an idea of the possibilities with a curved stair lift.

Project Timing: By their nature, straight rail lift components can be delivered and installed more quickly than their curved rail cousins. Curved rail units are custom made to fit a particular stairway and this process takes a certain amount of time. In general, EHLS can install a curved stairlift 4 to 5 weeks after the detailed measurement is completed. Your EHLS representative can give you delivery times for the various lifts we install.

Detailed Measurement: Most manufacturers have created CSI-like technology to simplify and improve the results of the detailed measurements. Using a digital camera to photograph the stairs, the systems create a digital model of the staircase that is used to create the custom rails for the staircase, improving quality and shortening the delivery time.

Testimonials

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!

I was introduced to Extended Home Living Services, otherwise known as EHLS, by my daughter in law – an internal medicine physician – and used her advice wisely. We knew my husband needed assistance in many areas, but the stairlift was the answer to his immediate need. Your showroom in Arlington Heights sold us as my husband was able to try all the lifts available and we chose a Bruno model for all of its wonderful functions. It was installed down two flights of stairs, used multiple times a day, and we don’t know what we would do without it. Thank you EHLS, as I told you, how grateful we are for your facility and all your services.

We had our chair lift installed yesterday and we were very pleased with the work the technician did. He did a great job!
