Stairlift installation varies depending on whether your relative’s stair lift is straight or curved. If the stair lift is straight, installation is relatively simple. It’s just a matter of attaching the stair lift to the staircase tread. Note that stairlifts are never fixed to the wall, although some curved stairlifts might in some circumstances need bracing on the wall.
Straight stair lift installation is straightforward and a stair lift installer will usually spend between an hour and two hours on the job. Incidentally, at UK Stairlifts, our installers pride themselves on doing a clean stairlift installation and on tidying up after themselves. Where electrical connections are required, in some cases your stair lift installer will need to be a qualified electrician. But, at UK Stairlifts, we take care of all this for you.
Curved stair lift installation is a different matter. Curved rail stair lifts are very complex and need experienced stair lift installers to handle the installation. Self-installation is not unheard of. However, if your relative needs a curved stairlift, installation must be done by a professional. At UK Stairlifts, our professionals have many years’ experience of stairlift installation.
Finally, once your relative’s stair lift is installed, will it get in the way? Well, no. The armrests, seat cushion and footrest all fold away when not in use. Call UK Stairlifts today about installation, service and repair on 0800 080 7997.
