Domestic Lift Services have written an informative guide below on the assortment of stairlifts that we offer so that you are better informed when you are deciding on what type of stairlift to use!
The straight stairlift is the most common types of stairlift, designed to fit onto a set of stairs that have no curve or bend. Most residential properties are going to have straight stairs which is what makes the straight stairlift the most common form. Straight stairlifts can be built into almost any staircase, regardless of how narrow or steep your stairs are.
Curved stairlifts are an ideal solution for those who are looking to fit their curved or bent stairs with a stairlift. Curved stairlifts can be made to match the curve or bend of your stairs. Domestic Lift Services work to custom fit your staircase perfectly, giving you a bespoke fit.
Whether you have stairs with a corner, landing or spiral, curved stairlifts from DLSL are an ideal solution to keep you mobile and independent. Domestic Lift Services help people retain their independence in their homes by installing and maintaining curved stairlifts quickly and reliably.
Reconditioned stairlifts are something you should consider if you are looking for a reliable stairlift at a lower price point. The term reconditioned may put you off as you think of it as second hand. However, reconditioned stairlifts from a reputable provider like Domestic Lift Services are serviced to a manufacturer level, making sure they are as good as when they left the factory. Our reconditioning process is stringent and rigorous, making sure that our reconditioned stairlifts are factory condition.
All reconditioned stairlifts that we supply have also undergone full safety checks to make sure they work as they should with guarantees. Any parts that have shown wear and tear have been repaired or replaced.
Domestic Lifts also offers a used stairlift buyback scheme for those looking to get rid of unwanted stairlifts. Dependant on the age, model and make, we scout the stairlifts making sure you are given a fair price for your unwanted stairlift! We also remove and transport the stairlift for you, so you don’t have to waste time dismantling the stairlift.
Slidetrack stairlifts are a revolutionary alternative to hinged tracks, removing the need for a hinge in a stairlift design. In a slidetrack stairlift, the slide track moves up the staircase at the same time as the seat is moving, which leaves the doorway at the bottom of the stairs clear.
A slidetrack stairlift is shorter than the overall length of your staircase, meaning there is less obstruction on your staircase. When you begin to travel up the staircase, the track will start to move with you. The track will then reach the top of your stairs before the stairlift, stopping while your stairlift moves to the top so that you can slowly and safely step off.
A great alternative for wheelchair users is the through the floor lift. Like the name suggests, a through the floor lift goes straight through the floor, like a lift does in a shopping centre or office building! There are also seated versions for those that don’t have to use a wheelchair but are more comforted by sitting down.
If you’re in a position where you’re unable to use a conventional stairlift or need a way of transporting a wheelchair up and down the stairs, then a through the floor lift may be the best lift solution for you. A common misconception is that a through the floor stairlift is too big for a regular sized home, but this is often not the case. Many of our customers are surprised when they find out they are eligible for a through floor lift.
