Having been set up in 1972 by engineer Frederick Brooks to help his wife Grace get up the stairs, Brooks Stairlifts can offer a long history of expertise in the market.
It makes stairlifts for both straight and curved stairs. Users can have their stairlifts fitted so that they can pass across a landing or a hall if the problem extends to walking and not just going up steps. Brooks also provides a folding rail to help avoid obstructions such as doorways which are often situated at the bottom of curved staircases.
Brooks Stairlifts products allow users to control them with a joystick, which some may find easier to handle, as well as offering a remote control system to avoid wires. Like other stairlifts, they are powered by DC batteries and these recharge after every ride.
The stairlifts are quiet and designed to start and stop gently, so there should be no unpleasant jerks. In addition, they come with a 12-month guarantee from the date of installation.
