A stairlifts speed is fairly slow to ensure a safe, smooth, and comfortable ride. The maximum speed they travel is 0.15 meters per second (0.34 mph).

Stair lifts are very straightforward to operate. All stairlifts have a switch which the rider pushes and holds in order to move up or down the stairs. The chair beeps once and stops automatically when the stairlift reaches the end of its track.

No, the rails take up little space and the stairlift seats, arms and foot rests can be folded up when not in use, leaving space for others to use the stairs as normal.

A stairlifts running costs are low considering you don’t need to service a new stairlift, therefore there’s little to worry about in terms of repair costs if there does happen to be a problem with your stairlift. They are battery powered, but must be plugged in when they are not being used in order for the battery to remain charged. This applies for all stairlift models. Audible and visual signals are used to alert you if your lift is not on the charging point, therefore the stairlifts power supply should always be switched on.
