Norfolk Stairlifts have recently installed a Platinum Curve Stairlift in North Walsham, Norfolk on this period staircase .
The Platinum Curve Stairlift supplied by Norfolk Stairlifts is a low cost twin rail stairlift that is suitable for most curved staircases.
Most stairlifts are 24 volt battery powered. This means that if there is a power cut during use of the stairlift you no longer get stranded! Stairlifts will give a number of journeys up and down stairs without mains electricity. This is very useful if the only toilet in the house is upstairs!
Stairlifts do need to be permanently connected to the mains so that whenever the stairlift is parked it is “on charge”. There is nothing further you need to do to make sure that the stairlift is topped up and ready to go.
Norfolk Stairlifts can also help with the provision of power supplies if required. In most homes we simply plug into an available plug socket within a few meters of the top or bottom of the stairs. Our surveyors can usually find something suitable, but in older properties this can be an issue.
The ideal place for the power supply here was next to the stairlift at the bottom of the stairs. In the unlikely event of any operating issues with the stairlift occurring then having the power supply at ground level and next to the stairlift means that if the power supply needs checking or turning off or on then this can be done in the safest place.
There were no sockets within sight here however!
It is also advisable to have the stairlift use a fused spur power point rather than a standard plug socket if possible. This stops the stairlift from being unplugged. If a stairlift is left for any period of time with no mains power then the batteries are likely to go flat and the stairlift will not work correctly.
The lady needing the stairlift had also suffered with a lack of power sockets in this area for plugging in a vacuum cleaner amongst other things!
Norfolk Stairlifts suggested that before the Platinum Curve stairlift was installed here in North Walsham that both issues were addressed.
Norfolk Stairlifts organised the installation of two standard power sockets and a fused spur in the hallway. Therefore providing a solution to both issues!

This period property in North Walsham also has an original pigs ear handrail fitted to the wall. Experience has taught us that removing these rails can cause damage! They are often fixed with cut nails and timber plugs driven into the wall. In this instance, the Platinum Curve stairlift was installed in front of the pigs ear handrail to avoid removal. Our surveyor has to ensure that there is sufficient clearance to do this. Here is a picture of what can happen when they are removed…
This Platinum Curve Stairlift has a choice of three seat styles; Ergo Standard which is suitable for most people, Ergo Plus which has a seat shaped to best suit those of a shorter stature and Ergo Space which helps to get a safe fit on narrower stairs. This Platinum Curve Stairlift, from Norfolk Stairlifts, is fitted with an Ergo Standard Seat in Beige. Other colours available are; Red, Blue and Grey. Other rail colours and special seat colours are available by special request.
