Stair lifts

Stair lifts are generally regarded by regulatory authorities as more appropriate for private dwellings, rather than commercial premises.  Where a stair lift may be the only practical option available, Councils may approve their use, e.g. required for a specific staff member or person.

Stair lifts are installed in a variety of indoor/outdoor environments and settings including:

  • Homes with multiple levels
  • Split and mezzanine levels
  • Garage access
  • External steps

To assist clients, architects, designers, project managers, builders and others, Vestner offers planning and consultancy to support the purchase and installation of stair lifts. 

  • Technical: Vestner will visit the home or premise to determine and discuss suitability of a stair lift or is happy to receive information and or photo’ s for consideration
  • Stair lifts available from Vestner are manufactured to internationally recognised Standards.  Stair lifts in private dwellings do not require a building consent.  Stair lifts in commercial premises will require a building consent.
  • Installation: Standard installation is usually completed with 4-6 hours noting:
    • stairway width ideally not less than 800mm
    • sufficient transfer area from lift at both upper and lower landings
    • the rail is fitted to the risers of the staircase- no fixing to walls required
    • require a standard power supply close to either the top or bottom landing
    • are installed by Vestner technicians or undertaken by Vestner's New Zealand wide network of trained subcontract installers
  • Design: Stair lifts are designed with comfort and safety foremost.  Straight rail stair lifts are immediately available while curved rail stair lifts are custom built to suit the particular stair case – allow 4-5 weeks before installation. 
  • Vestner will work with clients during the enquiry stage, through the planning phase and during installation to ensure a successful and timely supply & installation of the lift.
