If you have a nontraditional staircase in your home and need a curved indoor stairlift for mobility or other needs, you may wonder if a stairlift for a curved staircase even exists. Curved stairlifts do exist, and they can be installed in many nontraditional staircases. There can be stair lifts around corners, chair lifts for curved stairs, and even customized curved stairlifts for the most challenging installations. Read on to learn more about the requirements for curved stairlifts and the Bruno curved stairlift.
How Do Curved Stairlifts Work?
Custom curved stair lifts can be fitted for staircases with one turn, a landing, many turns, and, when needed, a change in staircase direction. Curved stairlifts can turn corners, and the chair seat can be custom-fitted for the change. Because these chair lifts are often customized when made, they can also take on spiral staircases if needed. They are installed similarly to conventional stairlifts but instead attach to a curved stair rail (or several) instead of a straight one. Bruno often manufactures the best stairlifts for curved stairs.
How Much Does a Curved Stair Lift Cost?
The average cost of a curved stairlift, according to NCOA.org, is about $12,000, while a straight stair lift averages about $4,000. An Acorn curved stairlift, for example, starts at $10,000, with the top models costing about $13,000. The higher price tag directly corresponds with the customization of curved stairlifts for sale.
Curved stairlift prices may be slightly lower if you do not require much customization. Bruno models start around $13,000 but have many robust features included with the lift for comfort and safety.
The Bruno Curved Rail Stairlift
Bruno’s Electra-Ride III Curved Rail model offers a safe and durable design that installs on virtually all curved stairways and mounts on either side of the staircase.
The custom curved stairlift is measured by Williams Lift Co. and crafted by Bruno to fit the exact measurement of the staircase. Below, find some answers to common questions and more about the Bruno Electra Ride III features.
What is the weight limit for a curved stairlift?
While the standard weight limit for many curved stairlifts is 250 lbs., the Bruno Electra Ride III has a weight limit of 400 lbs.
What batteries are in a Bruno curved stairlift?
Two OR-1270HR – 12V 7AH SLA batteries are needed to operate the stairlift and come complete with installation.
How long does it take to install a curved stairlift?
Usually, this curved home stair lift is installed approximately four to eight weeks after the measurements are taken.
