The Stairfriend stairlift by Savaria is custom made to fit your curved staircase, and therefore can be installed in almost any stairway application.
The folded up width of the Stairfriend stairlift is only 15.5" (39 cm). Typically a minimum of 30 inches is enough room to install one with lots of room left over for others to use the stairs.
Depending on your stairway and home, installation only takes approximately 4-6 hours for standard straight stairlifts, and less than a day for custom curved stairlifts.
Our trained technicians take about a half day to install a stairlift on-site. Stairs are measured in advance, and your stairlift is made specifically for your staircase making the installation process quick.
The stair lift track installs directly to your steps, meaning no modifications to your studs or structure of your walls.
Each installation varies, but the Stairfriend curved stairlift can typically be installed within 5 inches from the wall to the closest edge of the rail.
The Stairfriend stairlift can support up to 350 lbs.
