ThyssenKrupp’s Stair-Glide has advanced features, the most significant of which is the hand pendant control; fold up arms and the foot obstruction sensors. In addition to these features, the stair lift also has over speed brake and a joystick control on the arm, which makes the control easier even for people who are not able to use their hands properly. Stairs are composed of stringers, stair treads and stair risers. The stringers are the slanted members on the sides of the stairs which sit on the floor and are tightly attached at the top of the staircase. In most stair construction, there are two stringers installed on each set of steps. The stair treads are the sections in which you step on to travel up and down the stairs. Stair treads are usually made of wood.
Starting with two parallel 2x6 stringer members, the adjustable brackets are first positioned using a spacing tool and then attached to each member with a single "pivot screw". For finished interior stairs, the stringers may be "paint" grade or "stain" grade but will have a tongue and grove or spline milled into the parallel mating surfaces so that once the brackets are adjusted, the mating surfaces will be pushed together to form a continuous, decorative, one piece knee wall stringer. The remaining screws are inserted and the end cuts are made. All the risers and treads are now square cut to the exact length using a chop saw. It is recommended that a stop is used for accuracy and efficiency. The treads are usually cut slightly shorter than the risers (1/64") for fit. For fast assembly it’s best to first pre- assemble the stair and then lift into position whenever circumstances permit.
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.
