About Stannah

Origins Joseph Stannah opened a business in London, England in the 1860s making cranes to unload ships. Five generations later the company is still independently owned, and has grown into a globally-recognized maker of stairlifts and elevating equipment.

We opened a North American base in 1992, in Hopkinton MA, and now have dealers throughout the US and Canada, from Newfoundland to Hawaii. In southern New England and metro New York you can buy direct from us, the manufacturer.

In 2003, and then again in 2010, we moved to bigger premises as our business grew. We're now based in Franklin MA, with another office in Elmsford NY and a warehouse in New Jersey, and have representatives and technicians covering all of southern New England and metro-New York.

In 2012 we celebrated making our half-millionth stairlift - more than any other manufacturer worldwide.

Are your stairs suitable?


Straight stairs need to be least 27" wide (which is quite narrow).
Stairs that turn need to be a little wider; 29" is a workable minimum.

Door at the top?

No problem! We can install a Stannah stairlift to finish level with the top landing, even on a basement staircase with a door at the top.

Power outlet

You'll need a regular 110 Volt outlet, ideally within 10 feet of the top or bottom of the stairs and on the same side of the stairs as the stairlift. Most stairs have a nearby outlet that can be used, but if necessary we can discuss this with your electrician.

Outdoor stairlifts need an indoor outlet, to keep the battery charger dry. We can advise on this when we come to measure the stairs.

Most stairs are OK for a stairlift

We'll visit your home to help you plan for a stairlift.

We can help with the details when deciding whether to have a stairlift installed.

What to expect when working with us

A typical installation starts with a visit to measure your stairs, assess the needs of the person using the stairlift, and identify the best stairlift and pricing option.

If your stairs make a turn we'll usually make a stairlift that fits the shape of the staircase, which means taking very accurate measurements. We were the first manufacturer to develop a system for doing this using a digital camera and computer to do the measuring - it's more accurate than a tape-measure, and means that installations takes just a couple of hours.

Installation usually takes about two hours. We'll then spend as long as you need showing you how to use the chair and making any adjustments, such as to the seat-height). When you're completely satisfied, we ask for the balance of payment.
