A custom made curved stairlift is the perfect solution for you if your staircase has bends, corners, right angles or 180° turns in it. Please note if your staircase is completely straight please go to our straight stairlifts section
If your stair case is narrow or steep and you are looking for a suitable stairlift, you have come to the right place – Here at UK Stairlifts, we will do our best to help you find the perfect a curved stairlift for you, no matter how complicated your stair case is.
Curved stair lifts can be designed to travel onto the landing instead of stopping at the top of the staircase, – especially practical for the user.
Curved stairlifts require a curved rail that has to be made to measure to fit the exact dimensions of your staircase. A curved stairlift will be slightly more expensive than a straight model because there is more technical work involved to customise it to your stairs.
Most curved stair lifts can be installed with optional folding rails. These mean that if you have a doorway near the top or bottom of your stairs, you can fold the rail up out of the way so people using the door won’t trip over it. This is an extra benefit of the curved stair lifts!
According to curved stair lifts particular industry prices, the actual curved stair lifts tend to be relatively higher priced as opposed to the straight rail stairlift. Straight rails are rarely customised whereas curved stairlifts will always be custom-built corresponding to the all-round measurements of the curved stair steps. Because of this apparent reason, curved stairlifts are normally higher in price compared to the straight stairlift.
When it comes to comfort and stability, paying that little bit extra is all the more worth it knowing that you or your relative whom you are acting on behalf of, will be able to travel up and down the stairs using their curved stairlift in the comfort of your own home.
Curved stairlifts are the ideal and perfect solution for those of you lucky enough to have more than two floors in their home or awkward bends and corners on your staircase.
The first step for you to make is to arrange your free assessment for your curved stairlift so that our team of professionals can assess your exact requirements and ensure the curved stairlift is bespoke to you.

We have wide industry knowledge and up to date information on the various straight stair lift that are currently available from both manufacturers and suppliers.
If your staircase is straight and you do not have to make any turns, then you are only going to require a straight stairlift. The good news is that straight stairlifts are far less expensive than the curved models.
The cost of straight stair lifts is based on a number of factors, but primarily, on the length of the track and whether any extras are required. The extras could be things like a hinged track to accommodate a doorway at the foot of the stairs, power swivelling seats etc.
One of the prime objectives of installing a straight stair lift is to ensure the safety of the people climbing up and down the stairway. Usually, a straight stairlift is extremely useful for people who are no longer agile and fit, perhaps due to age. Straight stairlifts are a fantastic aid to people who are no longer able to climb the stairs and can help to improve your lifestyle. Not only can a stair lift help to prevent potential stairway accidents but they are also a great relief for people who have a weak lower body.
However, although a straight stairlift may be exactly what you need, it is still very important that you consider the various alternatives, as there appears to be a bewildering amount of choice.
Our advice to narrow down your choice – the marketplace can be difficult to navigate – simply look at our suppliers’ ranges of straight stair lifts and arrange your free assessment.

Disabled stair lift – The wheelchair model
Disabled stair lift -The seated model
Disabled stair lift – The side-hung model
Wheelchair disabled stair lifts make all floors in any house easily accessible to wheelchair users. The point of access can be installed in any room as long as there is enough room for the actual disabled stair lift device.
Close attention has been paid to the physical profile of the disabled stair lift meaning every design allows wheelchair users maximum space within their homes. The main benefit of the disabled stair lift for wheelchairs is that it comes in a variety of sizes accommodating for various different houses and surroundings.
A choice of hydraulic and traction drive systems are available allowing weights of up to 36 stone to be carried in the disabled stair lift. If you have a house with more than one floor, the traction drive option will allow extended heights of up to 3.6 metres.
Disabled Stair Lift – The seated model:
The seated disabled stair lift is an ideal alternative for users who do not necessarily require a wheelchair but find it more comfortable to sit down while traveling in the disabled stair lift. The seated disabled stair lift requires less power to run therefore making the seated model the lift with the smallest carbon footprint.
The hydraulic or traction drive system may be used allowing weights of up to 36 stone to be carried from one floor to the other. A useful feature of the traction drive system is that the height to which the lift travels may be extended up to 3.6m.s.
Disabled stair lift – The side-hung model:
The side-hung disabled stair lift model is a brilliant solution if you have restricted space in your house, allowing rails to be installed at right angles, making it easy to get around windows and other obstructions. It has the same safety features and reliability as all our disabled stair lifts.
This particular disabled stair lift was developed to add flexibility to the disabled stair lift range and it has achieved exactly that. If your home is restricted or has many obstructions then the side-hung disabled stair lift is for you!
The disabled stair lift side-hung model also has the capacity to carry up to 36 stone, depending upon which drive system you opt to go for. If you do choose to go with the traction drive system you may extend the travel height of the lift to 3.6m.
