AmeriGlide is a United States based company that produces consumer stairlift products specifically designed for self-installation. They’ve been in business since 2000 and they currently have stores in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
AmeriGlide is focused on cost reduction with the aim of making stairlifts more accessible to Americans, and this includes the provision of self-installation models of stairlifts. Customers may opt out of self-installation and instead have an expert handle the process. To further reduce costs, AmeriGlide offers refurbished and pre-owned stairlifts that can fit most stair configurations.
Although most of the AmeriGlide stairlifts are designed for home use, they also offer convenience solutions for churches and other commercial settings. Throughout its 20 years in business, AmeriGlide has sold over 50,000 stairlifts to Americans.

AmeriGlide Horizon Plus Outdoor Stair Lift
This is an outdoor version of AmeriGlide’s Horizon stairlift that is designed to handle fluctuating weather conditions. It has a waterproof cover to protect its seat and track, and a rubber foot mat to provide extra traction and prevent slipping. Additionally, the electronic components are insulated to prevent electrical accidents.
That being said, note that this stairlift is not designed to be used on ice, as its steel components are subject to rust. The Horizon Plus, like other outdoor stairlifts, will need regular maintenance to prevent degradation.
Horizon Plus Features:
- Ergonomic joystick on the armrest
- Diagnostic display to relay information to the user
- Security keys to prevent unauthorized access
- Swivel seat
AmeriGlide Curved Stairlifts
AmeriGlide curved stairlifts are not pre-made, rather they are customized for each customer. AmeriGlide sends out a technician to measure the staircase with a digital measuring kit. With the use of CAD drawings a curved stairlift is designed and manufactured.
Aesthetic features can be incorporated into a curved stairlift design as well. This includes having it take a 90° or a 180° turn to keep it from ending abruptly at the bottom of a staircase. Once the design is finished, it is shipped to the customer for installation.
