What is a straight stairlift?

Straight stairlifts are specifically designed for staircases with no bends or curves. 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 and operates the stairlift using controls on the armrest or a handheld remote.

Straight stairlifts are simple to install and can be customised to fit the dimensions of the staircase. However, if a staircase has bends, intermediate landings, or changes in direction, a curved stairlift would be required instead.
