Stairlifts & Lifts
Thinking of a Lift or Stairlift?
Are you concerned at the thought of being confined to the ground floor of your home because you find the stairs difficult to manage? The solution could be a stairlift or home lift. They both enable you to get up and down stairs quickly and easily, so you can carry on using the whole house and stay in the home you love.

About Home Lifts
Home Lifts are a comfortable, secure and dignified way to travel up and down stairs.
To use you simply step in and push a button.
The lift is also handy for transporting items from one floor to another such as a tray of food or a basket of laundry.
Some home lifts are large enough to accommodate a wheelchair.
Aesthetically, Home Lifts are unobtrusive and do not interfere with the look of your home as they are almost invisible when not in the room.
Typically a home lift takes up to 8 weeks from when you place the order, and needs two days to install in your home.
About Stiltz Home Lifts
Stiltz is a real, through-floor lift that is specially designed for home use. Invented in Australia in 2004, we first saw Stiltz in use when one of our parents decided to buy one for their home. We were so impressed we decided to become official partners.
Stiltz uses a unique side-rail system to allow a lift to be installed in almost any domestic house without major building works. That’s because the rails bear all the weight – and take up virtually no room in your home.
Quiet, smooth and packed with safety features, a Stiltz Lift takes just 30 seconds to transport you effortlessly from one floor to another.
Stairlifts are a practical and cost-effective way to get up and down stairs. A track is fixed to the treads of your staircase. To use you sit on the chair as it moves along the track.
The price of a stairlift depends on the type of staircase you have. A straight flight of stairs is easy to install, but if your staircase has turns or corners a curved rail is required which adds to the cost.
Stairlifts do affect the look of your home as the rail and chair is always visible, although the seat can fold up to allow access to walk up the stairs.
Typically a stairlift can be installed within days, and takes less than a day to be fitted in your home.
