Norfolk Stairlifts have recently installed a Brooks 130 Straight Stairlift on this staircase in Dereham in Norfolk.


Our surveyor had already guessed the staircase layout while waiting for the door to be answered!


Typically victorian style terrace houses will have a steep and narrow staircase in between the front and back rooms.  This was no exception.



The stairs here were set at 49 degrees making the use of them increasingly dangerous for our customer who was finding the climb more and more difficult.


Also, the Norfolk Stairlift surveyor had to overcome the situation in the small hallway between the two front rooms.


A full survey was undertaken to ensure a safe and practical solution was found.  The user’s mobility and needs were discussed and assessed.


The solution was to fit a Brooks 130 Straight stairlift with a powered swivel turn onto the landing.  This was the best idea for the user who had little strength in her legs.  The powered turn ensures that the seat can turn so the staircase is behind the user when they stand to get off the stairlift.


In the hallway, the only safe solution was to fit a fully automatic powered hinge rail.  This ensures that the rail is lifted out of the way when the stairlift is not being used so that there is no trip hazard when walking between the downstairs rooms.

The Brooks 130 is our best selling stairlift.  It can have several options making it suitable for most users.  It can have 3 different seat heights, a manual or power swivel turn, a powered or manually operated footrest.  It can also have, as in this instance, a powered hinged rail.




Norfolk Stairlifts give a two year guarantee on new stairlifts.  This guarantee offers great peace of mind to the owner as it covers callouts, parts and labour everyday of the year up till 10pm.


The Stairlift is also serviced after the first year at no extra expense to the purchaser.
