Curved Stair Lift Las Vegas
Can you spot the Curved Stair Lift in the photo above?
I’d like to share with you a recent installation we completed of a Curved Stair Lift Las Vegas. This customer was referred to us from a previous customer (thank you!) that we also installed a Stair Lift for here in Las Vegas. She was having trouble with the stairs and needed an option to stay in her home.
She looked at moving or renovating the downstairs but in the end, the stair lift was a better option as the cost was much lower than the alternatives. You can learn more about our Stair Lift Cost here.
So, let’s get to it and take a look at this wonderfully custom made Curved Stair Lift Las Vegas.
Double Flat 90, Curved Stair Lift
This photo gives us a great angle to view and describe this staircase. This home has what we call a Double Flat 90, curved stair case. Double flat meaning that there are two turns.
A curved staircase is any stair case that does ANYTHING except go straight up and down at a mostly constant angle.
Why is that? It’s a matter of which product we can use. Straight stair lifts only can go on a straight rail. Curved stair lifts on a curved rail.
It is best to use a curved rail here. Installing two two straight stair lifts isn’t possible but it just doesn’t make sense. There are two small platforms so you’d need three stair chair lifts. It’s just not practical.
Anyway, I really don’t like putting two straights on a curved staircase. Most of the time, our customers come back and ask us to take them out and put a curved unit on their stairs.
Look! It’s a custom colored rail!
I really like when people pick this option. It can make the stair lift stand out. It can make it blend in. There’s more than a few colors to choose from so call us to get an idea. We’ve done a black rail on a wrought iron staircase before. It looks really, really good when completed.
Bottom of Stairs View
This is a Siena Stair Lift chair. There are two options for Stair Lift chair tops: the Siena (like this) and the Starla. The Starla is a nicer chair with more safety features. It has a sensor in the seat of the chair that won’t allows the stair chair lift to move until someone is sitting on it.
See how the rail “wraps” around the bottom post there? That is called a “180 Turn and Park.” If the homeowner had wanted it to stop at the bottom of the stairs we would have been able to make it work. Turning the lift around and stopping it takes it out of the way of the traffic at the bottom of the stairs.
Top Landing View
At the top landing we can finish the rail at just before the platform. Here, however, the stair lift travels over the last step and onto the upper landing. There is more than enough room at the top to do that. It makes for an more comfortable spot to get on and off the stair lift.
I really like how the rail blends into the home. Between the carpet, railing, and wall color it just fits so well.
That’s it for this stair lift installation! Because the rail is custom made (and in this case, custom painted) it take about 3 weeks to get everything to our shop in Las Vegas. Pretty good considering just last year it took 6-8 weeks! Stannah has really made some great improvements.
