Stairlifts don’t need building work

That means no planning permission and no upheaval

It comes as a surprise to many people that you don’t need lots of building work or heavy construction to have your stair lift (or chair lift) installed.

Why not?

Because stairlifts are installed on the tread of your stairs

You don’t have to change anything about your house as your lift is perfectly crafted to fit what you already have. Your stairs are measured to the nearest millimetre. The rail your chair will travel on is designed to hug the edge of your stairs, and it won’t take up more than 7.5” (or 19 cm) of the width of your stairs (although this might differ on curves or if you have an obstruction).

Our stairlifts can be fitted on any type of material

From cement to wood to metal, you won’t need to alter your stairs at all. The feet of the rails are the only things that attach to your staircase, so if you decide later that you want to get rid of your lift, all you’ll be left with are tiny holes on some of the steps. They’re easy to cover up, even if your stairs are hardwood.

On the day your stairlift is installed, there might be a little bit of dust leftover from drilling the holes, but we’ll always clean that up before we leave.

Installations only take a few hours.

There won’t be people traipsing in and out of your house for days on end. Our friendly technicians will arrive on time, install your lift, make sure you know how to use it and be on their way. Straight stairlifts take only a few hours and curved stair lifts around half a day to install.

We work with (and around) what’s there

Are your stairs too narrow?

We have stairlifts designed especially for narrow staircases. The Sadler has a perch-seat, which means you are almost standing as you go up the stairs and the Siena has a curved back, so you sit further back in the chair. That means your knees don’t knock against anything on the way up. If you can stand on your stairs, chances are we can fit a stairlift on them.
