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.
Stairs parts are usually defined into two: the steps and the railing system. These two parts are highly connected to one another and should always complement each other to ensure its safety and design. If one part is not of good quality, the over-all look of the stairs and inevitable the house will be destroyed. If the railing is too low or too high, this can endanger the people who are living in that house especially children who likes to play in the stairway. On the other hand, if the steps are unequal and are not functional, this will also be a danger to all who uses the stairs.
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.
