If you have been suffering from mobility issues for a long time and are looking for a way to navigate your staircase, then Halton Stairlifts are here to help you with this issue. One question that is very commonly asked is whether stairlifts can be used for narrow staircases and if so, which units would be best suited for such a job.
Luckily, our team can provide you with all kinds of stairlifts that are designed to be deployed in all kinds of households. No matter what your living arrangements look like, you can be assured that we have the perfect solution for you.
What is The Minimum Width For a Stairlift?
The most important thing that you must consider when buying a stairlift is the type of stairlift you buy and whether it is suitable for your home, both in style and practicality. At Halton Stairlifts, we make sure to be as inclusive to all kinds of households as possible to ensure that no one with mobility issues is left without a solution throughout the UK.
When it comes to functionality, remember that a stairlift may be designed for a specific type of staircase, may this be straight, curved or perhaps it has a platform in the middle. On a straight staircase, the minimum width required for installation according to most stairlift manufacturers is 600mm or 23 inches and curved staircases require a minimum number of 660mm or 26 inches.
You can use our stairlift measurement guide if you are wondering how you can measure the space you have available. This will ensure that your staircase is wide enough for a stairlift. The most important measurements that are needed to be taken for a stairlift are the dimensions of the user as there is no use having a stairlift if you cannot fit into it due to a narrow staircase design. These measurements include back to knee, back to toe and seat to head.
If you complete your measurements and find that there is not enough space for the stairlift you desire, then you can get in touch with a member of our team and we will do everything in our power to assist you with your troubles.
