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.

Mike S. made every worry explainable for me. The stair lift has been a helpful way to get up and down the stairs.

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!”

Jeanne just had her Bruno Elan installed by Ken. She loves it! Should have done it some time ago. She was so happy with Ken’s install. We will be recommending EHLS to her doctor, friends, and others. Thank you!
