Curved stairs are not as safe as a strait set of stairs. Curved stairs get very narrow on one side. A curved set of steps may be difficult to negotiate in an emergency or fire situation. Handrails should be installed on at least one side of the stairs that has two or more risers. Properly configured stair handrails should 34 inches high and they should be designed to comfortably accommodate a person wrapping their hand around the rail. Guardrails also should accompany a handrail system on a properly configured set of steps. The gaps should be only 4 inches wide so that the body of a child can not fit though the openings.
Another type of material that we can use is marble. This type of material is commonly used in huge mansions with wide grand stairways. It is not commonly used in ordinary houses since it’s too expensive. Other types of materials used in stair parts are stone, cement, and steel. Depending on what you want the over-all look of the house is. The purpose of any stairs or its stair parts is too serve as a pathway for the house owners to go up and down the house. So it is imperative that it will be functional as well as aesthetic so that our houses will look good. Normally when people visit us, the first thing that they will see once they go inside the house is the stairs. Thus, we need the stairs to create a perfect first impression on the house. We normally go the edge just to please our visitors. But what we normally overlook is the fact that when we have a perfect staircase in our houses, this actually helps in impressing our visitors.
At the same time, it isn’t practical for someone else in the household to carry the disabled person up and down stairs. Ask the mother of a baby or toddler about carrying a 30 lb. child up a staircase several times a day. Now imagine carrying the equivalent of at least four toddlers up and down the stairs. It would be a daunting challenge even for a fit, strong adult to carry a lightweight adult up the stairs. There are a number of household devices and products that help senior citizens maintain their independence for as long as possible, from simple things like glucose meters to chairs that help them rise to a standing position, to personal alarm systems worn on a belt. Stair lifts are a big expense, but they can add immeasurably to the quality of life of the person who has trouble with stairs, and to the quality of life to a caregiver or other member of the household who had been tasked with helping the disabled person navigate the stairs.
