Curved Stairlifts

Where there are turns or complex bends on your staircase, you’ll require a curved rail to follow the shape of your stairs.

Here at Dolphin South West we can help you choose the right curved stairlift for your home and individual needs. As independent suppliers we can offer you a choice from the best options on the market along with advise based on our extensive experience.

How is a curved stairlift made?

We’ll take precise measurements of your staircase using a camera and computer software, and send that information to the manufacture to make a bespoke rail for your staircase. The rail is constructed in their factory using the latest fabrication techniques to ensure a smooth ride the entire length of the stairs. It is then fixed neatly and quickly to the stairs, making fitting and removal straightforward with minimal disturbance.

We know that not all homes are the same and that curved staircases can come in different shapes and sizes. The twin tube rail is the ideal choice when you need a stairlift that will follow your staircase perfectly.
