When pain or lack of mobility hits, navigating your home without difficulty becomes one of your biggest and most urgent priorities. If you’re thinking of giving yourself more freedom when it comes to getting around, then you may well be considering a stairlift. But, do you know your curved stairlifts from your straight ones? Whether you’re well versed in stairlift models, or just want a place to start – here’s our handy rundown of the three main types of UK stairlifts available to you.
Here at Halton Stairlifts, you’ll likely have heard us talk a lot about straight stairlifts. These tend to be the most straight forward type of lift on the market. All good quality stairlifts from reputable companies are tailored to the layout of your staircase. So, if your stairs don’t bend or turn across a landing, then a straight stairlift is the one you need. You can find out more about how straight stairlifts work here.
Having a curved stairlift installed is the best way to get your freedom of movement back, no matter the unusual shape of your stairs or the layout of your home. The ‘curved’ aspect of curved stairlifts refers to the shape of the staircase, not the lift itself. Curved stairlifts are needed for staircases that turn or bend. They’re also recommended for homes with multiple levels or floors. Halton offer a wide selection of curved stairlifts to choose from. You can find out more and browse Halton’s curved stairlifts here.
Outdoor stairlifts do exactly what they say on the tin. They come with the same features and level of comfort as your usual stairlift but in the form of an outdoor stairlift – designed specifically for external use. The onset of National lockdowns means that we’ve all been making use of every part of our homes and gardens lately. If you have outdoor spaces that you’d like to utilize more, then having an outdoor stairlift fitted can help you make this a reality.
Whether you need a straight, curved, or outdoor stairlift, all Halton stairlifts are available in a wide range of styles. This includes slimline and heavy-duty models, too. You can also choose between manual and automated features like swivel seats and footrests, to make using the stairs even easier.
