There are a number of things to consider when thinking of buying or renting a stair lift, such as how it will handle bends, how long it will take to install and how long the battery will last. One of the top questions posed by those in smaller houses is whether their narrow staircase will be able to take a stair lift at all, as all varieties of stair lift will be fixed to the stair treads rather than the wall.
Those with narrow staircases who are worried about whether there will be enough space available for a stair lift need not worry. There are stairlifts for narrow stairs available from all the reputable stair lift companies that are designed to meet the needs of householders with narrow staircases.
The secret lies in their compact design and folding parts, maximising space and efficiency. Folding arms and seats, a folding footrest and a slim rail enable these compact stair lifts to be neatly folded away when not in use, making them ideal for both the user and other members of the household who will be able to use the stairs as normal.
Stair lift manufacturers have regular exhibitions of their products where the space-saving models of narrow stairlifts can be tried out, and there are showrooms across the country.
