What Are the Different Sizes of Stair Lifts?

platform stair liftsWhen considering the size of stair lifts, the stair lift chair and the weight limit are two considerations.

Stair lifts chairs come in a variety of sizes, most ranging from 18 inches wide to 20 inches wide, arm to arm. Custom seating sizes are available.

The weight capacity varies by model, from 275 to 350 pounds on most models.

You can measure your staircase to determine the size stair lift to install. The first measurement should be the length of track from the top to the bottom of the steps. The second measurement to take is the height, tread and width of the steps.

The other consideration for sizing is to determine whether a standard or heavy duty weight capacity will be most suitable. Standard size stair lifts hold up to 350 pounds, while heavy duty stair lifts can support up to 600 pounds. They feature wider seats (23-25 inches versus 20-22 inches) and require a staircase that is 36 inches wide to fit the larger size lift and carriage.

Check with the manufacturer for details on stair lift sizes.
