What are stair lifts? Stair Lifts (sometimes called a chair lift, stairglide or stair climber) are the perfect, affordable solution to mobility issues with your stairs, making your whole home accessible again. Stair lifts can take you up and down your stairs effortlessly in safety and comfort, like a personal ‘elevator for your stairs’. Once again you can enjoy your whole home again. Not simply for the handicapped, stairlifts are a great solution for anyone who finds difficulty using the staircase.

They are state-of-the-art slimline products, with safety sensors, smooth start and stop, and safety belts.
