Stairlifts – Will it Fit?

Stair Lifts Fit Most Staircases

A staircase needs to be a minimum of 32″ wide to fit a stairlift. The track is mounted on the stair treads and will extend out from the wall between 6 to 9 inches.

The Chairlift’s seat, arms and footrest will fold-up when the lift is not in use. Folded-up, stairlifts will extend from 11in to 16in away from the wall

Folding Rail: Stairlift track does extend beyond the bottom of the staircase, which in some cases can be a problem. A manual or electric folding rail will allow the track to fold-up and out of the way when the stairlift is not in use.

Video Testimonials


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.

I no longer need my stair lift, but I wanted you to know how much I appreciate all the service calls, the fixing, and the quick responses you always gave to me. You were kind and I always felt you did just a little extra effort to keep the lift operational.

We highly recommend EHLS’ consulting and contracting services to make your home or place of work accessible. EHLS is qualified, professional and creative. Without exaggeration, EHLS is one of the best companies we have had the opportunity to work with.

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

The stair lif that you installed for my wife has made a world of difference for her. We are very pleased with the lift and installation process was very smooth. I will definitely be passing your name along to family, friends, and others who may be in need of a stair lift.
