Stairlift weight limits: What is the weight capacity of a stairlift?

The maximum weight capacity of our stairlifts is 350lb, but it depends on the model.

The weight capacity of a stairlift is a common concern for many people, as they worry that our stairlifts might not get them up the stairs. Our stairlifts, however, are sure to meet your needs.

The weight capacity of each lift is set so that we know you can use our stairlift safely up to that weight.

Although the maximum capacity of our stairlifts is 350lbs, the type of stairlift that’s right for you might have a slightly different limit. Check out how much each of our models can carry:

The Siena

The Siena is our most popular stairlift thanks to its simplicity and practicality. It’s also one of our most adaptable stairlifts, which means that as well as the many color choices and options of upholstery, it can be installed on both straight and curved stairs.

There is a slight difference between the weight capacity depending on the type of stairlift you need for your house, so this is worth bearing in mind.
