Curved stair lifts are custom built to fit a staircase with turns, corners, spirals or multiple landings. If your stairs turn or have landings you will need a curved stair lift for the safest mobility between floors.

Your lift will be carefully crafted with precision for the best possible fit and designed with the ultimate in safe operation. Our curved lifts offer unparalleled quality, reliability and style with tailored rail designs. A truly innovative stair lift with heavy duty construction for a solid, safe and comfortable ride while climbing the stairs.
Buying a Curved Stair Lift & Price
A good quality curved stairlift will cost $12,000 to $14,000 for a standard installation. The exact price will depend on the number of turns, bends, length of stairs and overall complexity of the design and installation. Outdoor lifts are a bit more expensive with the additional processes and materials to make them withstand the elements. While there are cheaper lifts we don’t recommend them for several reasons including higher frequency of repairs, lower manufacturer warranty periods and overall quality. If relying on a lift is a priority it’s well worth investing in the best chairlift possible. Ultimately they are the more affordable lifts without the need to purchase extended warranties and your time to schedule repairs calls, not to mention peace of mind.
Building Custom Curved Stairlifts
The normal lead time for delivery and installation is 6-8 weeks. While this might be slightly longer than a few other models on the market it’s well worth the wait. The lifts are custom built in large sections tailored to your stairs to achieve the best possible fit and highest quality. The larger sections also provide for a smoother ride and better operation than smaller rail pieces that are bolted together every few inches. Shown here we have a lift installation with four turns, three landings and top 90 degree parking off the stairs for safe access.
Rail Designs & The Importance
When deciding to purchase this type of lift it is important to note the difference between double rail lifts and single rail lifts. Shown in this picture is a double rail lift. This type of lift is very reliable using less electronics and does not require stabilizing motors to maintain the lift in a level position. Also the rails are constructed in large sections with less seams and pieces making for some of the tightest turns and bends possible.
Buying Tip: Before deciding on any lift we always recommend checking sites like Consumer Affairs and researching the manufactures information. Since this type of lift is a bit of an investment in time and money you’ll only want to do it once and a few minutes of research can make for a much better result.

With only 29″ of width at the first turn and limited space further up a precise fit was required. Lift shown here has a bottom 180 degree parking feature to keep the stairs free and clear. This also makes for easier access while transferring in and out of the lift.
Customize Your Lift
The standard model comes with a light cream seat and track color shown in the pictures. If you would you like to customize the color of your lift we have several other colors available. With many optional upholstery colors your lift can be customized to fit any decor and on most orders at the same cost.
Typical Lift Installation
When buying a curved stairlift it’s useful to know the process of how a lift is built for your home. Since curved lifts are custom built to fit your stair configuration the first step is scheduling a home visit for measuring. Precise measurements are taken for an exact fit of the rail and lift. Once all the necessary measurements are taken we will prepare a set of plans for your installation. The plans are also a great way to visualize how the lift will fit on your stair case.
How a Curved Stairlift Works.
