Curved Stairlifts

The Curved Stairlift is designed for use with staircase that turn corners of 90° or 180°, it can also be used on spiral staircases.

A curved stairlift will take 4-6 weeks to install from date of order.

All curved tracks are made to order following a survey of each individual staircase. The track is mounted on stanchions which are fixed to the stairs. We design the optimum track to accommodate the staircase whilst maximising the clear space on the stairs.

The track can be placed on either side of the staircase. The curved stairlift system offers the tightest internal bend on the market which means that in many cases this system will fit into hallways that other stairlifts cannot accommodate. The track can be designed to take you from the ground floor directly onto the landing level, to suit your needs exactly.

Generally the track will have two charging points, top and bottom, however some tracks may require intermediate charge points too. When the stairlift is not being used it should be left on one of these points. These points are generally located at the position where the stairlift stops. If circumstances dictate an alternative parking point, if a hinge track is used for example, the park position is easily located by using the park button on the remote control. Parking on the charge point keeps the battery topped up so your stairlift will continue to work in the event of a power failure.

When it comes to using the curved stairlift it is very straight forward. The stairlift is protected by a key switch, once switched on the toggle control is simpley held in the direction of travel.

Parking and calling your stairlift

All stairlifts come with two remote controls as standard, so you can have one upstairs and one downstairs. This means you can send your stairlift up and down the track without having to sit on it. This not only allows you to park at the top or bottom of the stairs, it is ideal for multi-user situations as your stairlift can be called between levels, just like an elevator

Swivelling your Stairlift Seat

When you arrive at the top of the stairs you will need to swivel your seat round so that you exit onto the landing safely.

Manual Swivel
If you have a manual swivel you will find a handle at either side of the seat. By pressing either handle down, or pulling it up, you can swivel the seat around to face the landing, where it will lock in place, allowing you to dismount safely.

Powered Swivel
If you choose the powered swivel option the swivel is operated by continuing to hold the toggle when you arrive at the top of the staircase. The seat will move automatically while the toggle is activated. Our powered swivels have a manual override for emergency release to improve stairway access if required.

Folding your footplate

The footplate and seat can be folded up to increase available space leaving the staircase as clear as possible for other users.

Manual footplate
Lifted and lowered by hand, manual footplates are fitted with an easy fold mechanism that minimises the strength required to fold the footplate up or down.

Powered Footplate

If you choose the powered footplate option it will remove the need for you to bend down to fold or unfold the footplate. You can choose to have a footplate that folds automatically when the seat is folded and unfolded, or that is operated separately to the seat by a switch in the seat arm so you can raise and lower the footplate whilst seated.

The curved stair lift can be combined with powered automatic hinge solution to prevent the track from obscuring any doorway at the base of the stairs. The operating control can be placed on either arm.
