When to Visit the EHLS / Lifeway Chicago Stair Lift Showroom
Our showroom is open 5 days a week (Mon-Fri) from 9 am – 4:30 pm and on the second Saturday of every month from 9 am-1 pm. However, if you have a busy weekday schedule, and cannot make it during operating hours, then we can arrange another time for you to test ride a lift. One of our friendly stair lift experts will be happy to meet you at our showroom outside of our regular operating hours!
Why Test Ride a Stair Lift?
When you invest in a stair lift, it is important to make sure that you find the one that you are most comfortable with. Pictures, videos, and facts are all very helpful, but a stair lift is a product that often needs to be seen and touched in person. When you visit our showroom, you will be able to feel what it’s actually like to ride a stair lift. You will be able to feel how a lift starts, stops, rides around curves or turns, and learn all the basic controls that enable it to go up and down a staircase.
Many of our customers visited our showroom before they purchased a stair lift. They found that being able to ride a stair lift before purchasing one allowed gave them confidence that it was the right solution for their needs. It also removed any worries of not being able to understand how it fully operates once it is installed.
Here is a quote from of a Glenview resident who visited our showroom before deciding to purchase a stair lift: "Your showroom in Arlington Heights sold us as my husband was able to try all the lifts available. We chose the Bruno Elite model for all of its wonderful functions".
So, we highly encourage you to stop by and try one of our stair lifts out! We want you to be able to age in place and stay safe in the home you love. Giving a stair lift a test ride can help you confirm that it is the best product for your needs and situation. A stair lift is also more affordable than moving to a single-level home or senior living community.
What Types of Stairlift are in the Lifeway Showroom?
In our showroom, we have four stair lifts that you can test ride.
- Bruno Elan
- Bruno Elan equipped with some of Bruno's optional upgrades -- a manual folding rail and powered folding footrest (arm switch activated) and power swivel seat.
- Bruno Elite straight stair lift
- Bruno Elite custom curved stairlift
You can test ride as many of the lifts as you would like! The straight stairlift models have an aluminum anodized rails, which are built to fit any straight staircase. The rail of the curved stairlift is custom designed by Bruno to fit on staircases that have curves, turns, or landings.
One of our stair lift experts can help you learn how to operate the lifts and find the one that best fits your needs and staircase. We will also help you decide if you need to add any options such as a power folding footrest. Below are some of the most common options that we recommend to our customers:
- Power Folding Foot Rest - allows you to conveniently fold the footrest up or down with a push of a button
- Power Swivel Seat - provides a safe exit at the top landing of the stairs when limited mobility prevents the person using the lift to manually swivel the seat
- Larger Footrest - recommended to those who have trouble bending their knees or have a larger foot size
- Larger Chair - provides a more space and comfort for those that may need it
- Manual or Power Folding Rail - recommended when the rail extends into a hallway that receives a lot of foot traffic to prevent it from becoming a trip hazard
If you have any questions about our showroom or when you can visit, please contact us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
