Stair Lifts – Installing in the St. Louis area
Many St. Louisans struggle with getting up and down the staircases in their homes due to mobility problems that can stem from illness, disability, aging or other reasons. Promise Home Works contributes to St. Louis’ wonderfully supportive aging-in-place community by providing quality stair lift installation services so that customers can easily access all levels of their homes. Stair lifts are commonly referred to as “chair lifts” because the design typically requires that the user sit in a chair as he or she is being lifted or transferred between the various floors of the home by means of the home lift system. Stair lifts can also be referred to as home lifts or home stair lifts because they are often installed in people’s homes as a measure to empower and enable the individual or family to age in place in the home.
Promise uses top-rated, dependable Bruno® stair lifts. These stair lifts are custom-built for your home and your staircase. For example, if you have a curved or spiral staircase, our Bruno® stair lifts will be configured to accommodate the style and shape of those stairs. Additionally, Promise Home Works installs stair lift systems in both indoor and outdoor settings of the home. The Bruno® stair lift that Promise Home Works installs is a single-rail lift system that is built alongside the staircase of a home and is attached to the actual structure of the home which helps to ensure its dependability.
The ability to move about freely in one’s home highly enhances the quality of life, as well as provides an invaluable sense of independence and freedom. We take pride in providing Bruno® stair lifts to the people of St. Louis because we are helping people to continue to live in their homes safely and confidently as long as possible.
Your Stair Lift Details:
Dimensions: 36 inch wide stairways are preferred, but our stair lifts fold up very neatly when not in use in order to allow other individuals in the home to continue to utilize the stairs (as little as 11 inches)
Weight Capacity: Standard models – 350 pounds; heavy duty models – up to 600 pounds
Warranty: One-year full-service and parts warranty
Education: We work with our customers, their caregivers and/or their families, post-installation, to ensure that all involved understand and feel comfortable with the features and safety mechanisms of the stair lift, as well as how to properly operate their new equipment.
Home Power Requirement: The motor requires a 15-amp dedicated outlet – which is readily available in most homes.
Features of Stair Lifts

- A seat belt helps to ensure that the user is seated in the chair safely and securely.
