Bruno Elan Straight Rail Stairlifts

Global Design

Meeting additional standards from around the world, the Bruno Elan Straight Rail Stairlift is the new benchmark for Style, Performance and Affordability. Building on two decades of Bruno research, the Elan can transport up to 300 lb with ease and in total comfort. Look to Bruno for the finest Home Accessibility solutions.


Quiet and Compact
Bruno’s Elan is the ideal stairlift for today and tomorrow – rack and pinion drive delivers a ride which is smooth and quiet, while a handsome rail hides all mechanical components. In addition, the seat, armrests and footrest all fold up into a compact unit – family and friends will have no problem using the stairs.



Elan offers a long list of standard features that are usually found only on more expensive units. The simplicity in design makes the Elan easier and less costly to install than other stairlifts.


The arms, seat and footrest flip up, creating plenty of space to walk up the stairs.
The hidden, rack-and-pinion drive system provides a smooth ride, without hesitation, when the unit stops and starts.
Safety First

A dual braking system makes the Elan one of the safest stairlifts in the world. The electromagnetic braking system is complemented by a self-locking gear box and overspeed brake which completely ensures your safety. Safety sensors on the foot plate and carriage stop the unit whenever an obstruction is encountered.


Consistent Power

The Elan uses two 12-volt batteries that are powered by a low-profile charger that plugs into any household outlet. A continuous charge along the rail is provided through a full-length charge strip. Access to upstairs and downstairs is never an issue, even when there is a power outage.

Elan Features

The convenient offset swivel seat mechanism provides a safe,
  comfortable exit at the top of the rail.

Continuous charge strips along the entire rail, mean the unit will be
  charged wherever it stops on the staircase.

The vertical straight rail can be installed to within 5” of the wall, and
  when the armrests, seat and footrest are folded, the Elan carriage
  takes up only 12”.
The two wireless call/send controls make installation simple and
  clean with no wires running along the wall.
