While the maintenance of mobility in the event of a power outage is a huge advantage of a DC stair lift system, that advantage is tempered by the cost of replacing batteries every 12 to 18 months, which can run up to $100 a pop for most stair lift batteries. On the other hand, DC stair lifts make less of a demand on the home electricity system, meaning that electric bills will be somewhat lower for DC powered lifts. The batteries of a DC powered stair lift charge in one of two methods: station charging or the use of a charge strip. With station charging, permanent charging stations are positioned at each end of the rail. Charge strips allow the lift to charge at any point along the track. Today’s rechargeable batteries are reliable and hold a charge better than old models. The typical stair lift battery will stay charged through about 8 trips up and down the track, though it will vary based on how long the staircase is and how heavy the person it is transporting is.
Stair lifts are devices that are attached to the treads of staircases to safely move someone who is elderly or disabled up or down the stairs. They consist of a track, usually made of aluminum, a chair attached to the track, and the electronic controls that make the chair move up or down the track. Stair lifts are powered by alternating current (AC), which is hooked up to the household electrical system, or with direct current (DC), which uses a battery that recharges from the household electrical system, and does not require use of home electricity to work properly.
Selecting a stair-lift has now become very easy with the Internet. There are the websites of different manufacturers where not only the product types are shown, but also the features of each of the products are shown so that the costs can be compared relative to the features that each of the products has to offer. In this way, you can easily decide in favour of one of the stair lifts that offer similar features. The Electra-Ride by Bruno stair-lift is an accessibility product that is similar to ThyssenKrupp’s Stair-Glide in certain aspects. The former has all controls, automatic, and is compact and unique in design. The seat height is adjustable so that the seating is comfortable. With its compact design, it is ensured that other people would be able to easily use the stairs even when the stair lift is fixed.
