Stair type – Is your stair straight or curved?
We sell, install and repair two types of stairlift track configurations: straight and curved. The stairs are located in your home or outdoors. The design of the stairs is usually the biggest factor in cost.
The Straight Ladder Elevator is a standardized rail that is suitable for all straight stairs and is the cheapest type of stair lift. Since the tracks are standardized, these units typically have faster turnaround times and are also available for purchase.
If there are any corners, turns and/or immediate landings on the stairs of your home or building, you will need a custom curved stair lift. Curved models are more expensive than straight models because the guides are custom made. The rails must be designed to match the exact specifications of your particular stair. The price you will pay depends on the exact configuration and any options added. While the price of a curved rail stair lift may seem high, it is still more cost effective than moving into an assisted living facility.
Outdoor stair lift cost
Outdoor models typically cost more than models designed for home use. Outdoor models can withstand outdoor factors such as cold, heat, rain and snow. The lightweight cover moves with the lift and protects it when not in use. It may be necessary to license these types of stair lift models.
Other factors affecting the stair lift cost
Step or travel distance
Although driving distance is not an important determinant in price, it still has an effect if you have more steps than a standard stair. Suitable for straight ladder lifts. The distance traveled by the curved model and the number of turns required will have an impact on the total price. The longer the distance required, the more tracks are required, resulting in higher prices.
There are many options to add to enhance the safety or comfort of the stair lift. Depending on your needs, you may need some, and for your convenience, you may add something else. Here are some of the most common stairlift options, which will increase stair lift cost.
