The weight limit for a stairlift tends to vary depending on a few different factors, such as
- whether the rail is straight or curved
- the bends and angles of the rail
- the type of chair that is chosen
As a general guideline, the upper weight limit for a straight stairlift is approximately 160kg (25 stone), while the upper weight limit for a curved staircase stairlift is approximately 136kg (21 stone). However, it’s important to note that specific and accurate weight limits for stairlifts are dependent on a thorough site survey.
