Types of Chair Lifts

O’Connor Carroll has stairlift solutions for almost every staircase.

Stair lifts can be divided into lifts for straight stairs and lifts for curved stairs. Straight lifts are off the shelf items. We simply measure the staircase and cut the rail to suit the length of your staircase. Since we always have these stairlifts in stock we can install them next day in many cases, depending on the schedule.

Curved stairlifts are not as simple. Because the rail is tailor made for each staircase they can’t be installed next day. If a customer decides to proceed we must make a 3D drawing of the staircase. From this drawing the rail is designed to fit exactly the staircase. Curved stairlifts normally take approx. 4 weeks from time of precise survey to stairlift installation. The lift specification will also match customer requirements.

Differences between Straight Stair lifts and Curved Stair Lifts

Straight Stair Lifts

  • Very good value for money
  • Suitable for completely straight stairs
  • No bends or turns in the steps
  • O’Connor Carroll have large number in stock; off the shelf items
  • We can react rapidly to stairlift orders
  • Installation can be as soon as next day (only subject to schedule)
  • Powered swivel or Manual swivel seat options

We have an excellent range and stock of stairlifts in our Ballymount Warehouse ready for installation. Our range of straight stairlifts include [Acorn],[Platinum] and [Homeglide].

Curved Stair Lifts

  • Considerably more expensive than straight stair lifts

  • Stairlift rail must be custom made for each installation
  • Single rail or twin rail options (depends on stairlift brand)
  • Suitable for very narrow stairs
  • Suitable for spiral staircases
  • Also suitable for staircases with obstacles or of unusual design
  • Designed for staircases with bends

Our range of curved stairlifts include the [Platinum Curve] which is suitable for most staircases. Our flagship model is the [Thyssenkrupp Flow X] which is perfect for all cases, including those where no other stairlift will operate.
