Stairlift last somtimes 2 generations in our experience. and is still going strong. When the lift is well maintained it can last very long because all the wear and tear parts can be replaced.
Are spare parts for stairlifts always available?
According to the Dutch law for stairlifts and handicapped mobility solutions for the houses, the parts need to be available for 10 years. After the 10 years we do take stock for the parts and we do purchase secondhand unit so that we can guarantee 25 years. That makes is 2 generation support.
What need to be replaced regularly?
The part which needs the most replacement are the batteries. These are not long lasting in Asian temperature. The specs of batteries are generally stating 2 to 4 years. In Malaysian weather, even in the houses this is maximum 2 years. This is due to the high temperature and the high humidity. That creates a much higher internal leakage and therefore a shorter lie span.
What need to be replaced after a few years?
The second level replacement parts are the movable parts of the lift. These are the bearings of the cobwheel, and the nylon rollers which makes direct contact with the rail.
If the lift is well maintained the lift last 20-30 years.
