Curved Stairlift with Speed Adjustment

A unique self-leveling transport system moves the carriage along a single low profile rail and automatically adjusts the speed and level of the seat on cornering, providing a safe and an exceptionally smooth ride. An Electronic programming system ensures excellent operational performance.


Curved rail stairlifts can have more complex controls than those with straight rails. Some stairlifts have automatic speed adjustment control to ensure optimum performance. The chair of a curved rail stairlift may have to be slanted so it remains horizontal while going around curves and navigates different angles of the stairs incline.

Also, the carriage assembly may be slowed down on curves and bends of the staircase and may travel faster on straight runs. This means a more multifaceted control system is vital.
Modern stairlift controls have small microprocessors which study the attributes of the ride and keep the information in retention. These microprocessors also log the number of journeys and direction. This information assists service engineers on maintenance calls.
