What is a Straight Stairlift?

Straight stairlifts are commonly used by people with mobility limitations who have difficulty climbing stairs. They provide a safe and convenient means of accessing different levels of a building without the need for physical exertion or assistance. The user sits on the chair or stands on the platform and operates the stairlift using controls located on the armrest or a handheld remote.

Straight stairlifts are specifically designed for staircases that do not have any bends or curves. They are relatively simple to install and can be customized to fit the dimensions of the staircase. However, if a staircase has curves, intermediate landings, or changes in direction, a curved stairlift would be required instead.
