A stairlift is a mechanical device for lifting people up and down stairs. For sufficiently wide stairs, a rail is mounted to the treads of the stairs. A chair or lifting platform is attached to the rail. A person gets onto the chair or platform and is lifted up or down the stairs by the chair which moves along the rail. A new stairlift will give you the following benefits: make it safer to use your stairs.

Here you will find everything you need to know about choosing and owning a stair lift. Buying a stairlift is a very important, but sometimes necessary decision to make as your stairs become more and more of a challenge. Here at Dragon we ensure that when you have to make this decision, you make the right one. Remember, it's not always right to find the best price but to find the right company that can provide you with the best impartial advice and aftercare support. As this lift uses batteries to power itself up and down the stairs it will keep going even if the electricity goes off. Powered by batteries so it can function even during a power outage. Our own ergonomically custom designed upholstered seats are an attractive addition to your stairway. Stairlifts can be folded away when not in use and leave plenty of room to walk up and down the stairs. The rails fit to the stairs and are designed to be modern looking and unobtrusive.

This unique leading edge technology assures you of access even if electrical service to your home is interrupted, and reduces the chance of being stranded between floors. It is also advisable to have the stairlift use a fused spur power point rather than a standard plug socket if possible.  This stops the stairlift from being unplugged.  If a stairlift is left for any period of time with no mains power then the batteries are likely to go flat and the stairlift will not work correctly. If your mobility is impaired and you struggle to navigate your way up or down the stairs, a stairlift can make a great addition to your home. As well as making your life much easier, they allow you to maintain your independence for longer and reduce the likelihood of accidents happening. Stairlifts have been designed to be two things: extremely reliable and extremely easy to use. A simple toggle moves the lift up and down.
