Curved Stair Lift Features

Powered Swivel

For added ease of use a powered swivel is an excellent option. This optional feature adds a new level of comfort and safety. With the push of a button the chair pivots in either direction assisting you to get on or off the lift.

Powered Footrest

For individuals who have difficulty bending down the powered footrest is a great optional feature to look into. Again, with the simple push of a button the footrest will fold up making the stair lift more compact and out of the way.

Additional Charge Point

In some unique staircases users may choose to park the lift somewhere other than the top or bottom landing. This is where the additional charge point comes in handy. If you have a multi-level home or a unique stair case and think you will parking your lift in an unusual area of the staircase then an additional charge point will ensure your lift never runs out of power.

Extra Parking Call/Send

Every lift comes standard with a radio call/send remote for your top landing and your bottom landing. They use a radio frequency so that your lift can pick up the remote signal through walls and other obstacles. If you have an additional landing than getting an extra remote may be a good idea.

Offset Footplate

The offset footplate is designed to make your lift avoid obstacles or bulkheads. This optional feature can benefit the user by making the lift more maneuverable in difficult areas or narrows turns and can reduce the track height. This option can make the track less obtrusive in unusual staircases that require tight turns.

Heavy Duty Upgrade

The HD upgrade has a long list of features and benefits. First, it uses a Heavy Duty drive motor and hardened acetyl rollers successfully increasing the maximum weight capacity to 350 lbs. Furthermore, additional legs and support bars are placed on the rail to increase the strength and stability of the track. It has a stronger swivel boss and a sturdy seat designed to withhold more weight yet still provide you with a comfortable ride.
Types of Curved Stair Lift Landings

Intermediate Landing

These are used for individuals who may need to use the lift to travel to multiple levels. Adding an intermediate landing means you have a bottom landing, a top landing, and a middle landing.

Top/Bottom Over-Run

This gives you more space to get off your lift at the landings of your stairs. For people with a narrow staircase the lift carriage may seem intrusive and they may wish to park the lift a little bit farther up the staircase. This excess room to park your lift creates more space for people to walk up and down the staircase. This added convenience is perfect for people who have the extra room at either the top or bottom landing.

Nose Drop

Adding a nose drop to the bottom landing of your stair lift gives your lift the ability to end abruptly at the bottom of the stairs. It let?s the carriage sit as close as possible to the bottom stair and prevents excess track from becoming an obstacle. This option is perfect for those with doors or passageways in close proximity of the bottom landing.

Overview

Before purchasing a curved stair lift for your home, consider that it may be possible for two straight stair lifts to do the same job for less money. Considering that a curved stair lift can cost up to 3 times as much as a double stair lift installation it is important to know exactly what options are available before you make your decision.

Why a Curved Stair Lift?

For many, AmeriGlide’s straight stair lifts provide an excellent way to increase safety, without sacrificing independence. However, not everyone has a straight staircase, so it might be necessary to consider using a stair lift that is curved.

If your staircase is curved, you might be faced with the decision of purchasing a curved stair lift. Curved stair lifts end up costing a lot more than a stair lift designed for a straight staircase. This is because a curved stair lift must be custom fit to the curve of your staircase. At Ameriglide we have taken the "mystery" out of curved stair lifts by offering the most common solutions right online and at a price that has revolutionize the curved stair lift industry, just as we did the stright stair lift market years ago.

Unlike straight staircases, which typically only differ in their length, builders do not adhere to any set standard when making a curved staircase. As a result, two houses that are right next door to one another could have completely different shaped curved staircases.

Since there is not a standard in building a curved staircase, it is necessary for the curved stair lift track to be custom made to fit the curved staircase, which can for most manufacturers can easily take in excess of two months. Not at Ameriglide. We will deliver your new curved stair lift with 14 days from the date of the in home survey and normally install it within the next 5 business days. The total time from date of order to completed installation is usually 20 days or less. Self installation of our curved stair lifts is not available at the present time.

One of the disadvantages of a curved stair lift is since the rail system is custom built for every application a lifts rail system will only work in the home or business for which it was designed and manufacturered for. If the stair lift is to be adapted to another application a new rail system must be designed and manufacturered. Ameriglide does offer this service and pricing is available both online and by requrest. The price for a standard 20' application with one 90 degree bend is $3699 plus the cost of a new stair case survey, shipping, and installation. 
 

An Alternative to a Curved Stair Lift

Dual Stair Lift InstallationOn some staircases it is possible to install two straight stair lifts, instead of going with a curved stair lift. This is called a double installation and will only work if the stair case is shaped like an ‘L’ and has a 90-degree bend. It also needs to have a landing in the middle.

When going with a double installation, you will install a straight stair lift onto each leg of the ‘L.’ Many times this alternative works, and it is much less expensive than a curved stair lift. The double installation allows for you to have a stair solution set up in days as opposed to months.

 

Some Advantages of a Double Stair Lift Installation

  • Can save at least $6,000
  • Can move your stair lifts to a new home
  • Can re-sell your stair lifts and recoup a portion of your investment
  • Can install the two straight stair lifts on your own
  • Can be up and running in less than a week as opposed to 3 weeks.

 

If you do not have a straight staircase, please call us or contact one of our stair lift experts. A double installation could save you a great deal of money and time however if a curved stair lift is the proper solution we will more than please to help you. We look forward to speaking to your regarding your stair lift requirements.
