Stair lift installation

Stair lifts need to be installed properly.

Although the process of stair lift installation can be relatively straightforward it must be carried out by someone competent.

Fitting a stair lift involves mounting a track or rail on to the stairs. The chair then rides up and down the stair lift track with the use of a motor.

Stair lifts should only be installed according to manufacturer instructions and should not be altered in an attempt to make them fit stairs for which they were not designed.

When you purchase a new stair lift the option of having it installed by a trained professional should be included.

If you purchase a second hand stair lift then you should ensure that a qualified stair lift installation worker installs it.

New stair lifts should come with a full installation instruction manual from the manufacturer. This will describe all safety measures, stair lift contents and installation procedures that are required.
