How to Effectively Choose a Home Stair Lift
Looking up those stairs to your target landing spot can be daunting when you need a little assistance. A home stair lift from Stair Lifts Northallerton can certainly help you there. But many are unnecessarily intimidated by choosing a home stairlift. There are just a few basic elements to understand before purchasing a stair lift. Then once you have carefully contemplated these elements, you are home free.
Elements of Consideration Prior to Purchasing a StairLift:
Type of Staircase Involved:
The first thing you need to survey is the staircase that you will be using the chairlift on. Is the staircase straight to the target or does it curve? This is the first most important thing to consider because there are two different types of stair lift. One is straight and one is suitable for curved staircases.
The Main Difference Between Straight and Curved Varieties of Stair Lifts:
The straight stair lift is your bog standard variety. It goes one way up to the target landing and it goes down. That’s it, nothing too fancy. The curved stairlift however can do some nifty tricks and truthfully is the one most purchased. This is because it’s made to make stops, go different speeds and most importantly — it’s made for curves and corners. Most people’s homes do not have a straight staircase. There is at the very least, one landing that you have to negotiate and two turns before you hit your target landing.
Consider the Size of the User:
If the user has mobility issues and has a larger than average build—you have to consider that. The size of the chair lift and the weight of the rider are all factors. Every stairlift from Stairlifts Northallerton comes with a standard chair but custom fits may have to be made according to the rider’s dimensions. This may run you a bit more money. But we have some great deals and a variety to choose from.
