Folding Stairlifts that don’t get in your way

Because they fold away neatly to take up even less space

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 absolutely no need to worry. Every lift we make folds away neatly. The footrest, arms and seat flip up, taking up very little space. The stairs will still be easily accessible to anyone who wants to climb them.

Your space saving stairlift

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 staircase is that it takes up as little space as possible. 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.

A folding stairlift chair

All stairlifts and stair chairs fold away neatly, keeping your stairs accessible for anyone who wishes to use them. So, if you’re looking for a stairlift for small spaces or for a very narrow staircase, Stannah stairlifts’ foldable feature will allow your visiting friends and family to use the stairs freely.

Clear 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. When designing your stairlift, we always think of how it can best fit your needs and your home décor. That’s why our engineers made sure our stairlifts have a space saving feature integrated into its design, so it always folds away neatly.

We made sure we have a solution for (almost) every staircase, and so we have a wide range of stair chairs that you can choose from. During your free home visit one of our experienced advisers will walk you through the features of each model, so that you know which one is the perfect one for you and your home.

If you’re looking for the best stairlift for narrow stairs, for example, check out our Siena model. But if you’re worried about having to sift through all our models’ features and customisable options all on your own, don’t be – that’s what our experienced advisers are here for; during your free home visit, our adviser will listen to your wants and needs and together you’ll find the best stairlift for you and your home.

Are you worried about a stairlift drawing attention?

Again, don’t be. Our stairlifts are customisable. That means you can choose the design that best suits you and your house. You can make it as discreet or as bright as you like – you have full control.
