Stairlift General Information
About our stair lifts:
- A Florida stair lift or chairlift is a chair that travels along a rail close to the edge of the stairs.
- The rail is attached to a few stair treads, not the wall.
- Professional Installation takes about four hours.
- The chairlift is powered by batteries which recharge automatically when not in use.
- The charger is plugged into a regular outlet.
- At the top of the stairs the chair swivels to face safely onto the top landing.
- Weight limit: 350 lbs (straight stairs); 265 lbs (stairs that turn); upto 350 lbs (outdoors).
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. Carpet is 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 10' 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 if they can transfer from one chair to another.
- The user (or helper) pushes a button to make the chair go - it's designed for arthritic hands.
- A key prevents unauthorized use.
