Almost every day, seniors and caregivers in the Lehigh Valley and Poconos ask us if they need a straight stair lift or a curved stair lift (always known as a stair glide) for their home. The answer rides on your stair case (pun intended!).
Determining whether you need a straight or curved stairlift depends on the design of your staircase. Here are some general guidelines:
- If your staircase is a straight, uninterrupted line from top to bottom without any turns or curves, a straight stairlift is typically suitable.
- These stairlifts are more common and generally more affordable than curved ones.
- If your staircase has turns, bends, or curves, a curved stairlift is necessary.
- Curved stairlifts are custom-made to fit the specific shape of your staircase, making them more expensive than straight stairlifts.
- The width of your staircase and any obstructions or obstacles may also influence the choice between straight and curved stairlifts.
- Professional assessments by stairlift providers can help determine the most suitable option for your specific staircase.
It’s recommended to consult with a reputable stairlift provider or installer. They can assess your staircase, discuss your mobility needs, and provide personalized recommendations based on your home’s layout.
