Types of Stairlifts

Types of Stairlifts

Indoor (Interior or Inside) Stairlift and 
Outdoor (Exterior or Outside) Stairlift

There are two different types of stairlifts; 'Indoor (Interior or Inside) Stairlift' and 'Outdoor (Exterior or Outside) Stairlift', referring to a stairlift installed either inside or outside your home.

Indoor and Outdoor Straight Rail

If your interior staircase stairs path runs in a straight line up the stairs, you would need an ‘Indoor Straight Rail’ stairlift. If your exterior staircase stairs or steps path runs in a straight line up the stairs, you would need an ‘Outdoor Straight Rail’ stairlift.

Indoor and Outdoor Curved Rail  

But if there are turns or bends in your stairs path, then you would need a 'Curved' rail stairlift, a curved stairlift with a carriage that will run on curved rails (tracks) that follow the bends and curves of the staircase.
If your indoor (interior) staircase stairs path runs in a curved line up the stairs, you would need an ‘Indoor Curved Rail’ stairlift. If your exterior (exterior) staircase stairs or steps path runs in a curved line up the stairs, you would need an ‘Outdoor Curved Rail’ stairlift.
Sometimes two straight rail stairlifts on a curved staircase or steps may accomplish the installation at a lower cost; all depending on the configuration of the staircase and a recommendation of a survey & consultation stairlift installation expert.

An Outdoor Stairlift is the perfect solution for you if you have a set of stairs or steps outside of your home that is causing you difficulty.

Leisurely visiting about in the garden is one of those passions people with extra time certainly love to do, but for disabled persons or seniors who really do wish to work in their garden, or have access to the garden or back yard; this desire may be out of the question due to stairs.
Whether going up to the main doorway or down to the garden, an outside stair lift is designed to take away barriers to enjoying the garden or other recreational pastimes. Lifts often add years of mobility for people wishing to age in place in their own home.
The challenge of outdoor steps can now be overcome. Get out and about whenever your heart desires. An outdoor stair lift can help you utilize the stairs outside your home with confidence and ease all year long. Outdoor stairlifts are designed to withstand the elements with manufacturers offering fully weatherproof and waterproof stairlifts.
If you have mobility impairments and live in a home with an outdoor entryway that is only accessible by exterior stairs from the sidewalk to the front door or you would like access or need or want to use your outside stairs; the outdoor stair lift is an ideal solution for situations involving any stairs or steps including back stairs, the back yard, basement, beach, cabin to the boathouse, deck, exterior entryway, front door stairs or stoop, garage, garden, lakeside dock stairs, outdoor porch or sun decks steps. The outdoor stair lift is very popular with those lucky enough to live in beach homes, as some stairlifts are well protected from the ravages of salt air.
