The weight capacity of a stairlift is one of the most common concerns people have when they’re looking for the right stairlift for their home. After all, we all want a durable stairlift that will be able to live us, and/or our loved ones safely, right?
A quick online search will give you different answers but most sources say a standard stairlift has the capacity to carry 300 to 350lb. There are also stairlift manufacturers claiming that their stairlifts have a maximum weight capacity of 400lb and others even up to 500 or 600lb but these stairlifts fall under the heavy-duty category and if you’re interested in getting a heavy-duty stairlift for your home, the first thing you need to do is to speak to an expert in mobility aids and have your house assessed and checked to have a better idea of what exactly your house needs.
