Curved Stairlifts are the solution for stairs
that have bends, curves or landings. Emprise Stairlifts recommends the
ThyssenKrupp Flow 2 curved stairlift.
ThyssenKrupp Flow2 Curved Stairlift
The Flow 2 will handle almost any indoor stairway
configuration, providing you with access to all the
different levels of your home and letting you
preserve the active lifestyle that you've earned.
The Flow 2 is
a customised stairlift that can handle straight
stairs with corners or even spiral staircases. The
Flow 2 can be installed on either side of a staircase.
When installed on the inside of the staircase, it
can travel over numerous floors. This is ideal, for
example, if your washing machine is downstairs from
your living area and the bedrooms are upstairs.
The following video presents
the Flow in operation and highlights some of its key
features. (Note: the model
demonstrated includes the automatic swivel and
curved arms. This model costs approximately $2,500
more than the base model.)

Customised To Suit
Because each stairlift is different, each
Flow 2 stairlift is customised to suit the individual
staircase where it is to be installed. The
Flow 2 can be installed on either side of
your stairs ("inside" or "outside" of the curve), allowing you to choose the side that
best suits your home and the planned use of the
stairs and stairlift. Therefore, an individual
personal consultation at the house is extremely
Based on a detailed measure (of the
height and depth of each stair and the angles of
every turn), detailed engineering drawings are
prepared on computer and used to drive the automated
manufacturing process for the stairlift's rail.

rail) is then shipped from the factory, ready for

The Flow 2 uses a joystick as a steering device
and a key all in one. In order to
“drive”, simply push the joystick in the direction
required and hold it. To lock the stairlift so
that no one else can operate it, simply remove the
If you are not able to operate the stairlift
yourself, the attendant control will be of help.
With this device, an attendant can drive the
stairlift up and down the rail while you are seated
on the chair.
The Flow 2 can be installed on
virtually any staircase without the need for any
structural changes. This versatility comes from the
Flow2’s unique automatic swivelling and levelling (ASL)
technology which allows the lift to rotate, pivot
and swivel whilst it’s in motion, with the chair
automatically ending in the best position for the
user to move safely away from the stairs. The patented
Swivel is programmed to adapt itself to the space of
your staircase while it is travelling. The linked
footrest also moves with the chair, keeping your
feet in the most comfortable position.
No other stairlift in the world
can do this.
ASL technology means that the
Flow2 lift can be installed in steep or narrow
staircases where other lifts don’t fit. With the
automatic swivel seat, the stairlift can safely
operate on stairs that are as little as 650mm wide
Note: the automatic swivel is an option. The
Flow 2 comes standard with a
fixed seat that travels the length the rail in the
same position (at right angles to the rail).
If the full automatic swivel is not required, a manual swivel seat can be added
if needed to allow the seat to be positioned for safe entry and exit from the
stairlift. The manual swivel seat is operated by a
lever at the side of the seat.
In order to save space at either end of the
staircase, we can make an extra curve on the rail,
so that you can park the chair around the corner,
out of the way of the stairs. Through this, you can
access the stairlift easily and safely.

If there is no space to allow a parking curve on
your staircase, the vertical start is the solution.

Clean, efficient installation
The stairlift is installed by our trained
technicians. It is fixed on the stairs rather than
the wall. Because the stairlift has been customised
to the individual requirements of the staircase,
installation in your home normally takes only a few
hours, depending on the number of sections in the
rail and the ease of working on the stairs.
Choose Colours to Suit Your Décor
The Flow2 Curved Stair Lift is both functional and
||blue, sisal, red,
