Previous Dublin Stairlift Installations
SUMMERHILL, DUBLIN 1 – STRAIGHT STAIRLIFT
With space being at a premium, our customer opted for the Handicare 1100, an ultra slim and compact stairlift and as you can see, can be placed close to the wall, leaving a lot of free space on the staircase for other stair users to safely use.
PEARSE STREET, DUBLIN 2 – CURVED STAIRLIFT
The customer’s stairs had one turn at the top, so we recommended the single rail Handicare Freecurve. The customer had recently had a new carpet laid and their concern was how the installation of the stairlift would affect the carpet. This is a common question and as you can see, the new stairlift fits neatly on the new carpet.
CLONTARF, DUBLIN 3 – CURVED STAIRLIFT
With this Handicare Freecurve installation, the client selected the Handicare 2000 model. Each 2000 is custom built based off the specific parameters of your home’s architecture to ensure it fits tightly against your wall, ensuring your staircase is left with the maximum amount of space. The customer’s partner was still able to use the stairs but wanted the handrail retained. With the stairlift following the internal bends, there was ample room to retain and use the handrail.
SANDYMOUNT, DUBLIN 4 – CURVED STAIRLIFT
With two turns on their staircase, our customer choose the Handicare 2000, a well-established and versatile stairlift system with the tightest track bends available in the industry. The Handicare 2000 can accommodate a wide range of stair configurations and as you can see from the pictures, it hugs the edge of the staircase leaving users with more room.
ARTANE, DUBLIN 5 – CURVED STAIRLIFT
The customer did not want the stairlift intruding into their hallway so they were able to overcome this challenge by selecting the Handicare Freecurve with a powered hinged track. The powered hinged track extends when you go downstairs, and folds up when you go upstairs or want to park the lift out of the way, allowing clear access on the lower level.
RAHENY, DUBLIN 5 – CURVED STAIRLIFT
With this Handicare Freecurve installation, the Occupational Therapist’s assessment recommended that the stairlift continue onto the landing, as the customer was very unstable on his feet. By adding an extra section to the stairlift, the customer was delivered directly opposite the entrance to their bedroom, which was also adjacent to the bathroom.
RATHMINES, DUBLIN 6 – STRAIGHT STAIRLIFT
A classic example of the simplicity of the Handicare 1100 stairlift. This elegant stairlift has the slimmest rail in the market. If your space is small and narrow, as in this customer’s home, this is a great option.
Also, from arrival to departure, it took out expert fitter just under two hours to install the stairlift.
PHIBSBOROUGH, DUBLIN 7 – STRAIGHT STAIRLIFT
For this customer and their particular mobility challenge, their home had a stairs of only four steps but that was enough of a barrier to prevent them from accessing that part of the home. We installed a Handicare 1000 straight stairlift with a powered hinge rail.
With a doorway at the bottom of the stairs, the regular stairlift track would have intruded across this. In this instance we recommended that a powered hinged track be installed. This means that the track can be folded away from the doorway giving clear access.
BEAUMONT, DUBLIN 9 – STRAIGHT STAIRLIFT
This customer installation is a Handicare 1100, which is the slimmest stairlift on the market, meaning it can be placed close to the wall, leaving a lot of free space on the staircase for other stair users to safely climb the stairs. As you can see from the pictures, the customer’s hallway was tight on space, yet the Handicare 1100 fits snugly into position.
FINGLAS, DUBLIN 11 – STRAIGHT STAIRLIFT
In this stairlift installation, we recommended the Handicare Slide as it automatically moves the track clear of any obstacles while the stairlift moves into a parked position. As you can see, this option is ideal in this instance as access is required through doorways close to the staircase.
SUTTON, DUBLIN 13 – STRAIGHT STAIRLIFT
A common issue customers encounter is having to remove a wall-mounted handrail. As you can see from the pictures, the mark of the handrail is visible on the wall but this is a simple task for any painter to make good. What’s most notable, as with all the Handicare 1100 installations, is how compact and tidy the stairlift is.
On this installation, the standard swivelling function is manually powered but what makes the Handicare 1100 unique to other stairlifts is that should the customer’s needs change, and they require a powered swivel, this can be easily upgraded without the need to remove the stairlift. This makes the Handicare 1100 the only future proof stairlift around.
DUNDRUM, DUBLIN 14 – CURVED STAIRLIFT
This stairlift installation required two curves and with the Freecurve Elegance, you have two available configurations. The Rembrandt follows a path around the internal bend (normally, the banister side) and the Van Gogh follows the outside of the bend (normally, the wall side). The customer opted for the internal bend and the overhead image shows you the neatness of the stairlift installation.
RATHFARNHAM, DUBLIN 14 – CURVED STAIRLIFT
It is not safe to use a straight stairlift when it means you have to get off the lift part way up the stairs because it goes around a corner. In this installation in Rathfarnham, the customer had a turn at the top of the stairs, so we recommended the Handicare Freecurve stairlift. Because the angle of the rail changes on corners, the Handicare Freecurve stairlift operates on a twin-rail system, making sure the chair stays level at all times and assuring a smooth ride.
CASTLEKNOCK, DUBLIN 15 – CURVED STAIRLIFT
This installation is a fine example of the Handicare 2000 Simplicity stairlift. The twin rail of the Handicare 2000 Simplicity stairlift is very similar to our single rail solutions with added durability and a heavier weight capacity. Note, once you raise the seat, arms and footplate, how little room the stairlift takes up.
CLONSHAUGH, DUBLIN 17 – STRAIGHT STAIRLIFT
This customer came to us via an Occupational Therapist’s (OT) report. The requirement for a stairlift aside, her major concern was the steepness of the stairs. The home owner had complained of vertigo and as a result, the OT deemed the stairs to be a significant hazard to their safety and wellbeing.
Employing the unique 3D modelling technology, our expert fitter installed a Handicare 1100 to match the gradient of the stairs, providing the home owner with safe and comfortable passage and in the process, making everyday life easier.
PALMERSTOWN, DUBLIN 20 – CURVED STAIRLIFT
When we completed the 3D survey of the customer’s home, we recommended the Handicare Freecurve stairlift. As you can see, the staircase is steep and narrow and the Freecurve is the perfect stairlift solution. The Freecurve can overcome the toughest staircase challenges and was custom built to fit the staircase.
TALLAGHT, DUBLIN 24 – CURVED STAIRLIFT
This installation in Tallaght is another excellent example of the Freecurve Elegance. The Freecurve is available in 2 configurations. The Rembrandt follows a path around the internal bend (normally, the banister side) and the Van Gogh follows the outside of the bend (normally, the wall side). The customer elected for the Van Gogh and as you can see, the stairlift swivels at the top and allows the client to safely step onto the landing.
CLONDALKIN, DUBLIN 24 – STRAIGHT STAIRLIFT
This is a Handicare 1100 straight stairlift with a powered swivel seat. The customer is able to swivel the chair to face away from the stairs on to the landing, and this is done by simply continuing to hold the hand control or using the remote.
Note the neatness of the stairlift on the carpet. There is no need to lift a carpet when a stairlift is being installed. The stairlift sits neatly on top of the carpet.
DUN LAOGHAIRE, COUNTY DUBLIN – STRAIGHT STAIRLIFT
After a home assessment by an occupational therapist (OT), that recommended the installation of a stairlift, our customer had the Handicare 1100 installed. The simplicity of the design belies the engineering excellence to produce such an elegant looking stairlift.
SWORDS, COUNTY DUBLIN – CURVED STAIRLIFT
Most staircases follow the same design principles, so selecting and installing a straight or curved stairlift is very straight forward. In this instance, the customer’s staircase was custom made back in 1952, so the stairlift too had to be designed to cater for the unique turns on the staircase. This is a prime example of the importance of our 3D Survey Technology: it measures the stairlift for the stairs to the exact measurement, so when it comes to the installation, the stairlift fits to 3D model.
The installation also included a powered hinged rail so that the track could be folded away from the doorway giving clear access.
