Types of Stairlifts

A guide to straight, curved and platform lifts.

The kind of stairlift you need will depend on the shape of your staircase. Typically, stairlifts fall into two categories, straight or curved. Whilst both work and operate in a similar way, curved stairlifts are tailormade and designed specifically to fit your staircase. Other options to consider include a platform or through floor lift for wheelchair users and those working in commercial buildings to allow easier travel through floors.
