Florida Stairlifts Inc. - Quality Electric Stairlift and Company Info

Posted by Jon Bovis

About our stair lifts:

  • A Florida stair lift or chairlift is a compact motorized chair that travels along a rail close to one side of the stairs.
  • The rail is securely attached to a few stair treads but not the wall as commonly thought.
  • Professional Installation takes only a few hours and your home is left as we found it.
  • The chairlift is powered by two batteries which recharge automatically when not in use.
  • The charger is similar in size to a laptop power supply and plugs into a regular 110v 15A outlet.
  • At the top of the stairs the chair can be swiveled to face safely onto the top landing.
  • The seat, arms and footrest fold up when not in use to keep your stairs clear for other stair users to pass easily.

  • Weight limit: 350 lbs (straight stairs); 300 lbs (stairs that turn); upto 350 lbs (outdoor straight).

About the staircase:

  • Minimum: three steps.
  • Maximum: no maximum number of steps for models that go around corners.
  • Minimum width: straight stairs - 26", stairs that turn - 29".
  • Construction: wood, metal, stone, concrete. Carpeted treads are no problem.
  • Doors at the top or bottom are usually OK.
  • Handrails usually get relocated but can often be left if desired.
  • The outlet should ideally be within 15' of top or bottom of stairs, on the same side of the stairs as the stairlift.

About the user:

  • Most of our customers get a Florida Stairlift so they can stay in their own home.
  • They can usually walk on flat ground but find stairs difficult.
  • Wheelchair-users can use a stair lift as long they can transfer from one chair to another.
  • Many customers state they wish they had their stairlift installed years earlier.
  • The user (or helper) pushes a button to make the chair go - it's designed for arthritic hands.
  • A standard key switch is included and prevents unauthorized use.
