If you require a stairlift but have an unusually shaped staircase, you might have thought that it wasn’t possible to have one fitted. This isn’t the case however! If you find the right company, almost any staircase can have a stairlift fitted, whether it has one curve, two curves or more! With staircases which have a flat bed landing in the middle, although it would work out slightly cheaper to have two straight installations, there is one vital disadvantage to this – two stops. You would have to transfer to the second chair half-way through the trip, meaning the journey to the top takes longer and makes it far more of a hassle to do each day. A curved lift eliminates this and means you’ll have a quick trip to the top every time.
If you have concerns about disembarking at the top of the stairs, it is possible to extend the curved lift right onto the landing – allowing the user to get on and off the lift in a safe and spacious area. Associated Stairlifts are one of the leading curved stairlift providers in the UK and are experts in finding solutions to even the most complex staircase arrangements.
