What is a modular stairlift?

A modular stairlift is a type of stairlift that is made up of pre-fabricated sections that can be assembled to fit any staircase.

This makes modular stairlifts more versatile, adaptable and quicker to install than traditional stairlifts, which are typically custom-made for each staircase.

How do modular stairlifts compare with traditional stairlifts?

  • Cost: Modular stairlifts are typically less expensive than traditional stairlifts. This is because they are made up of prefabricated sections that can be assembled quickly and easily.
  • Installation time: Modular stairlifts can be installed more quickly than traditional stairlifts – in the case of 24-7 Healthcare, we can install a curved or straight configuration in 24-48hrs. This is because modular stairlifts do not require any custom time consuming fabrication, unlike curved stairlifts.
  • Versatility: Modular stairlifts can be installed on a wider variety of staircases than traditional stairlifts. This is because they are made up of prefabricated sections that can be assembled to fit any staircase, regardless of its shape or size.
  • Adaptable & re-useable: Modular stairlifts can be easily adapted to meet the changing needs of the user. For example, if the user’s mobility needs change, the stairlift can be modified to accommodate those changes. 
  • A modular stairlift can be removed and installed to another location with ease, even if it was initially installed with curves or bends, allowing you to re-locate the stairlift or take your stairlift with you if you move home, saving money on buying another stairlift.

Some additional benefits of modular stairlifts

  • Modular stairlifts are easy to use. They typically have a simple control panel that makes it easy to operate the stairlift.
  • No bending to reach levers. Our modular stairlift chair is fully automatic, it will return to its “standby” position once you put the chair arms up, this includes retracting the footrest and rotating to its standby position after use. So a user doesn’t have to reach over to operate any levers to do this – like most stairlifts. When the arms are lowered, the chair will turn to allow access and the footrest will lower automatically.
  • Modular stairlifts are safe. They have a number of safety features, such as safety belts and emergency stop buttons.
  • Modular stairlifts are comfortable. They typically have padded seats and backrests.
  • Modular stairlifts are durable. They are made from high-quality materials and are designed to withstand years of use.
  • Fully recyclable: Designed to be fully recyclable, reducing the impact on the environment.

If you are considering a stairlift, it is important to weigh the benefits of modular stairlifts and traditional stairlifts. 

Modular stairlifts are typically less expensive, easier, quicker to install and more versatile than traditional stairlifts. However, traditional stairlifts may be a better option for some people, such as those with VERY complex staircase designs or those who need a stairlift with a lot of custom features.
