Straight stairlifts

A straight stairlift is exactly that, one which is fitted to a straight flight of stairs with no bends or turns as shown below.

 

 

The good news is if your stairs are straight then installing a straight stairlift will be much cheaper than installing a curved stairlift.  Prices for straight stairlifts range from £1400 for a basic model up to £2800 if you require special features and options.

 

Delivery is also quicker for straight stairlifts, a basic model can normally be installed within a couple of days. 

 

Some configurations of curved stairs allow the fitting of straight stairlifts on the main straight flight i.e. leaving the user to negotiate 1 or 2 steps,  however you should consider carefully your future ability to manage these steps.  If your condition is likely to deteriorate then it is worth considering the installation of a curved stairlift to future proof your needs.

 

It may also be possible to adapt or alter an existing curved stair layout so that a straight stairlift can be fitted, we will give you all the options available at the time of survey.

You can also install two straight stairlifts on a ‘dog leg’ type staircase, as shown below, however this will involve transferring between the two stairlifts which may not be easy or practical.  If your budget allows you should always consider installing a curved stairlift.
