Folding Stairlifts that don't get in your way

A stairlift with a folding seat, footrest and armrest is just the perfect mobility solution to give you back your independence while saving a lot of space and keeping your stairs free to use.

Are you worried about a stairlift getting in your way?

Often, people avoid buying a stairlift because they think it will block their stairs. Family members or friends might visit, and they’re worried their stairlift will get in the way.

There’s no need to worry. Our folding stairlifts are space-saving mobility solutions that assure your stairs will still be easily accessible to anyone who wants to climb them. The footrest, arms and seat flip up, taking up very little space. From the rails to the seat, every part of your folding stairlift is though to perfectly suit your home staircase.

If you want your stairs to be completely clear, you can get a rail that lets you park your chair around a corner. That gives you the whole stairway.

Whether you have straight or curved stairs, your rail will always be as close to the edge of your stairs as possible. We can promise this, because Stannah-certified advisers take precise measurements of your stairs before we make your lift. That way we can be sure it’s the perfect fit. The benefit of having a rail made to fit your house is that it takes up less space. This is especially true if you have a curved staircase. A Stannah rail will hug every bend, giving your loved ones more space to climb the stairs.
