Budget Stairlift

Budget Stairlifts

Do you need a curved stairlift, but you are on a budget ?

Question:

You may be wondering why curved stair lifts are more expensive than straight stairlifts.

Answer:

The rail . All staircases with curves or bends are different, some may look similar but can vary by just a few inches, for this reason the stairlift rail must be tailor made to order, hence the extra cost involved.

We have some cost effective solutions below that may be an option for your curved stairs.

Option 1

If your stair case is not straight like A but you have one or more sub /  quarter landings like stair cases B, C or D , Then it might be possible to have two or more straight stair lifts , This can often be a cheaper alternative to having a curved stairlift. The stairlift user will need to be able to transfer from one lift seat to the other , the transfer distance would be very small , a good money saving option for a lot of people that cannot budget for a curved stairlift .

Option 2

If you have a staircase with a sub landing / quarter landing similar to stair case G , Then the below option could be for you . Maybe you have just one extra step at the top ( left or the right ) , in that case your curved stair case will be converted to a straight staircase , if you have two steps this infill will leave you with just one step that might be manageable for the stairlift user .

Either way will be a much cheaper option than a curved stairlift !

Option 3

If you have a turn or a curve at the top of your staircase like E, F or G we may be able to install a hinged and counterbalanced drop down / bridging platform (Shown below) to span the gap between the stairlift foot plate and the upper landing, avoiding the expense of a curved stairlift.

With this arrangement the stairlift chair is turned 45 degree’s , that way the gap at the side will be almost closed and the user will be stepping onto a full platform .

This is really only suitable for someone that can walk well on the level but has problems with climbing the stairs .

Option 4

If you have a staircase similar to H it is possible that your only option will be a custom made curved stairlift.
