Choosing the right Stairlift in Bedfordshire
Let us check your staircase!
Before placing an order for a stairlift you should ensure the staircase has been assessed to make sure it is suitable for the stairlift you have chosen. It is rare that a stairlift cannot be fitted to a staircase but some systems may have limitations that mean they are not suitable for your home. We do not pressure-sell and are members of Luton and Milton Keynes Councils' Buy with Confidence Schemes.
We have been in business for over twenty years serving the community and all our engineers have been DBS (CRB) tested.
You do not need to worry about surveying your staircase; we will do this for you. We will advise you of any adjustments required to fit your stairlift (e.g. move a heater) and which is the best side of your staircase to fit your stairlift.
Our stairlifts range offers features such as a powered swivel seat and powered folding footplate; these can make using a stairlift even easier by allowing you to operate these functions at the touch of a button rather than manually. Even if you don't need them now, they may be something you will benefit from in the future. And battery back-up means they will still work in case of a power outage.
A hinge track to fold the track away
In order for the seat to get low enough for the user to sit on, it is necessary for the track to extend beyond the staircase to the hall floor. Some houses will have a doorway close to the bottom of the stairs and the track may intrude across this. In these circumstances a hinged track should be fitted. This means that the track can be folded away from the doorway giving clear access.
Exit onto the landing safely
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.
If you have a manual swivel you will find a handle at either side of the seat.
If you choose the powered swivel option the seat swivel is operated by continuing to hold the toggle or joystick when you arrive at the top of the staircase. The seat will move automatically while the toggle / joystick is activated. Our powered swivels have a manual override for emergency release to improve stairway access if required.
