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 first stringer can be laid on the floor using blocks and one end of each riser is attached to each bracket so that the risers are in a vertical position in relation to the stringer. The risers are attached to each bracket using blind screws through the holes in the brackets. The second stringer is then positioned over the opposite ends of the risers and attached. A clamp may be used to pull the stringers tight against the riser ends. This one step will eliminate up to 80% of the custom fitting normally required for conventional stairs.
If you do not have enough money to buy stair lifts, do not worry as you can always opt for stair lift rental. People do not need to stay confined at one place if the two legs given to them are working properly. But sometimes it so happens that due to some reason or the other the ability to walk is lost. You cannot move about freely and you cannot even go up and down the stairs as and when you require. Losing the ability to walk is really painful. Most of the time, one needs to remain confined at one place. You might break your leg or have some pain in your leg. The legs might even be paralyzed or there might be illness like arthritis which forces a person to stop the movement of the legs. At that point of time going up and coming down the stairs becomes a serious problem.
