Can I have a lift instead of stairs?

The short answer is that in a vast majority of countries, you would not be allowed to replace your stairs with a lift, and for very valid safety reasons. There might be exceptions, but we strongly advise against replacing your staircase with a lift. If the lift breaks down, you need to have a staircase to ensure that you are not completely blocked on one floor. In addition, if there is a fire, you must never take the lift but evacuate by the stairs instead.

If you ask yourself this question because you do not think you have enough room for both a staircase and a lift inside your home, you should know that there are other solutions that are much better and safer. In many cases, it is possible to install one of our lifts at the centre of your staircase, or just beside it. Our smallest lift size only needs1 m2 of space. It is also possible to place a staircase outside your home. Another great solution is to install our outdoor lift on the outside of your home.
