If your stairs bend or turn corners then you will need a curved stairlift with a specially made curved track to fit the exact layout of your staircase. Curved stairlift tracks are either bent into shape or made up of modular bends, so that they can be fitted to almost any type of stair configuration, even spiral staircases!
Because each curved stairlift track is bespoke, there is usually a longer wait for delivery and installation than for a basic straight stairlift. Being custom made also means a curved stairlift will have a higher price. However, a purpose built track will offer more flexibility. For example, it could be made with a parking bend to allow the stairlift to be parked clear of the top or bottom of the stairs.
In order to determine the design of track that best meets the user’s needs, the stairlift supplier will conduct a survey of your staircase and assess your needs. For instance, they will be able to advise on whether the stairlift should travel on the inside or outside bend.
Although a more expensive option than a straight model, a curved stairlift can greatly enhance your quality of life and take the struggle out of using the stairs, helping you to maintain your independence. So if you’re got unusually shaped stairs, the first step is to arrange a free no obligation survey with a reputable stairlift company to find out your options and to get a price.
