Stair lift Las Vegas Quick Facts
We design stair lifts specially to fit on narrow stairs for you and for other stair users.
We design them with a slim rail, a compact carriage and with folding arms, seat and footrest. That way, the entire chair folds away neatly. Extremely practical and convenient for everyone.
Our stair lifts can go round corners and spirals.
Our curved model is the most versatile “stair chair” available for narrow, curved stairs. It can travel round bends on either side of the staircase and negotiate intermediate landings and corridors with ease. Your rail will be manufactured to the exact dimensions of your staircase not assembled with off-the-shelf, pre-manufactured bent rails. The two-way powered swivel option enables you to swivel the chair to the safest position at both the top and bottom of the stairs, particularly in tight spaces.
Our stair lifts are installed in just a few hours.
Because ourstair lifts are attached to the stairs, not the wall, the process is quick, clean and simple. Our friendly installers will work with minimum fuss, tidy up afterwards, test the stair lift thoroughly and show you exactly how to use it before they leave.
Our lifts work during a power outage.
We all know here in Las Vegas that we sometimes lose power. Monsoon season in Nevada can be horrible but our stairlifts are battery powered so it continues to work even if your home loses power.

Stair lift Guide Las Vegas
You want to stay in your home in Las Vegas right? Let our stair lifts help you out. There is a lot to understand and find out about stair lifts. We’ll walk you through it. We’ve been installing them since 1987. That’s a long time. Things have changed much in that time but at the end of the day, it’s all about getting you upstairs safely, reliably and in style.
I’ll go through the stair lift parts, different types of stair cases, stairlifts, and options you have.
First, we have to find out a few things:
- Stair lift Components
- What type of stairs do you have?
- Where are the stairs? (Inside or outside your home)
- What is the traffic like around the stairs?
- What are the dimensions of your stair case?
- What is going to fit on your stairs?
- WHY do you need the stair lift? Alright, let’s jump into it.
Stair Lift Components
A stair lift is made up of three things: the rail, the carriage, and the seat.
The Stair Lift Rail
The rail is what get’s mounted to the stair case first. It is either straight or curved (more on that later). It also holds the rack: a series of teeth that the gear on the stair lift “climbs” up or down the stairs. Here’s a straight rail:
The rail is mounted to the stairs with feet which are typically attached with a lag (wood or concrete). Nothing is attached to the walls. It doesn’t make any sense to do that as the walls can’t hold as much weight as the stair treads. You can see the feet pretty well in this photo. I actually had to search more than a few gallery photos to find one that showed them well enough.
The wiring for the electrical also comes into the lift on the rail. The stair lift functions on battery power so if there is a loss of power to the house, the stair lift will keep on working.
This is the Carriage for a staight stair lift
This is a carriage for a curved stair lift.
There are two rails on a curved stair lift versus just one on a straight.
The carriage is what houses the “brains and muscles” of the stair lift. The motor gearbox, electronics, safety switches (most) and the batteries are within the carriage. It’s basically the hood of your car where the engine is kept.
The motor gear box is within the carriage. The pinion attaches to the motor gearbox which climbs the rack on the rail. There is a printed circuit board which acts as the brain of the stair lift. It tells it when to start and stop based on the signals it is reading from the switches and circuits of the chair.
The carriage also displays and LED troubleshooting that might have to occur. This allows us to diagnose problems over the phone and help get repairs and service completed faster.
This is the fun part. The seat is where you sit but it is more than that on a stair chair lift. It’s where you safely taken up the stairs.
The seat is very important. Comfort, performance, quality of materials, all of these matter. There are several seat options. We’ve talked about them down lower in this article so you can see that here.
You either have a straight set of stairs or a curved set of stairs. It’s that simple.
A straight staircase makes NO turns and has not platforms, or what is called an intermediate landing, like this:
That’s because a straight stair lift can only go on a stair case that has a relatively constant angle. The rails are mass made to reduce costs.
Are your stairs outside or inside the home? Or both?
Yes, we can do outdoor stair lifts and indoor stair lifts. And we can provide straight and curved lifts on both steps.
The house “traffic patterns” at the bottom, on, and at the top of the stair case are an extremely important factor in deciding on what solution is appropriate for your home.
This is a retractable rail stair lift. It’s only available on a STRAIGHT stair case. It automatically comes back up out of the way when the stair lift goes upstairs.
Why is that an option? Well, if the bottom of your stairs is very close or adjacent to a door, you’ll need one. Many times it’s used to allow the front door, garage door, or closet door to open.
However, there isn’t an option for one on a curved stair case. It’s just not possible. That’s ok because we can curve the rail around corners on a curved rail.
Just remember that on a straight that the rail never turns.
We need to know the minimum width of your staircase. 29 inches or even 28 inches in width may work but anything less that is really, really tight. We want to make sure it is code compliant and safe.
Length of stair case really doesn’t matter as we can just about do any length possible on a stair lift. The shortest you can go is about three steps. Anything less than that and you should just get a ramp, if possible.
Why do you need the Stair Lift?
There are many reasons why someone needs a stair lift but we need to know why.
Why do we need to know? Well, there are a lot of other factors involved in a stair lift that we can customize to make work for you.
For example, you may have bad knees but you may also have one arm that’s stronger than the other. We can move the switch to the stronger hand.
Maybe the user can’t keep themselves upright in the chair. We can provide a 5 point or a shoulder safety belt.
Let’s get into the models we offer. This is the fun stuff.
The Starla model is the best option on the market if style, safety and reliability is most important to you. Key benefits are:
- Soft and Comfortable – The chair leans slightly back from the seat, this gives you more security and comfort while riding up the stairs.
- Seat Sensor – The Starla has a sensor in the seat that won’t let the stair lift run unless someone is sitting in the chair. That elimates any risk of starting the lift before you sit in it.
- Fabric and Trim – You can choose 5 different fabric options and 3 trim options for the seat and chair, allowing you to fit the chair to your own style and home.
- Seat Belt – Fitted with our unique seat belt, the Starla chair is set up so that for maximum safety.
The Siena chair model is the most popular chair we offer. Key benefits are:
- Automatic Folding Footrest – This chair comes with an automatically folding footrest as STANDARD. All you do is push a button and you can raise and lower it at will, allowing easier seating and standing.
- Remotes – All of our chairlifts comes with standard wireless remotes. These remotes have several settings so they’ll only run your chair. You can be upstairs and send the stair lift up and down the stairs.
- Fabric – There are 6 upholstery options for you at no extra charge.
- LED indication – the carriage (which houses the motor and electronics) has an LED display that can show numbers from 1 to 9. These numbers will allow ACME to diagnose any issues that may happen, such if you accidentally push one of the safety sensors.
Available for Curved, Straight, and Narrow Stairs
Get outside and enjoy every we can do here in Las Vegas. Key benefits are:
- Designed to withstand the elements – We’ve been installing outdoor stairlifts in Las Vegas for years and this one works reliably, every time. You can rest assured that this lift can handle the sun and wind we get here.
- Discrete – The chair folds out of the way, only sticking about 1 foot from the wall when folded. It also comes with a cover that can hide it, if you feel the need to.
- Keyed operation – the chair lift comes with a key so that only you can operate it.
- Call Stations – our call stations are weather resistant. The wires are also run in conduit or tubing to make sure they can last as long as the chair does.
- Designed for the rider needing assistance sitting and standing – a saddle-style seat provides assistance to the user getting on and off the stairlift
- Discrete – A folding footrest and arms provide ample room to walk by when not in use
- Keyed operation – Keyed off/on switch provides extra security for households with small children
- Remotes – A plus for multiple users in the same household
- Versatile and Economic – The scout offers an economically competitive solution without compromising on the reliability and safety Stannah is well-known for
