There are many innovations being made in the field of accessibility equipment and new features are being added on a continuous basis to the new products to further facilitate the users of the equipment and to ensure their safety as well. The manufacturer that you choose for getting the stair lift depends on the kind of features you want your stair lift to have and the kind of accessibility options you’re looking for. Some of the most well known models of star lifts in the market are the Electra-Ride Elite, Citia, Stair-Glide, Excel and the Electra-Ride III. Bruno is one of the best manufacturers not only in curved stair lifts but also for straight ones. Another one of the best manufacturers of straight stair lifts is Savaria Concord as well ThyssenKrupp.
Proper stair design has a maximum rise of eight inches, a minimum run of nine inches and a minimum tread width of 9.25 inches. A safe and properly configured stairway should be at 34 inches wide. As a rule the wider steps are safer then narrow stairs. There needs to be adequate headroom above the set of stairs. The required headroom is at least 6 foot 6 inches. When there is a door at the top of a set of steps, it should open away from the stairs for safety reasons. If a door opens toward the stairs a landing is needed so a person opening the door will not be able to push someone on the stairs.
The stair parts, then, is very important for all who uses it. We may hire professional stair makers or craftsmen to create the most perfect stairs that we wish from. An inexperienced stair maker can jeopardize the quality of the stairs and in turn, turn our dream homes into nightmare. We can use different materials in making the stair parts. First of all is wood. Wooden stairs create a very beautiful ambiance for any home. It also poses safety and practicality to its users since it is not slippery and is comparably softer than concrete. But, the type of wood is also very important. There are a lot of wood types and not all of them are strong. We must pick a high quality wood to fit the stairs and will last almost a lifetime.
