Stair Lift Key Points
- Rail mounts to stair treads, not to wall. Stairs must be in sound condition.
- If your stairs are narrow (less than 37") than the track distance from the wall will be a key issue. This factor is also dependent on the height of the stair chair elevator user and their leg length.
- If you have difficulty transferring to the seat of the chair then seat height will be a key issue.
- Seat height at bottom of stairs is an important point if client is short.
- If you have lower back pain and a soft start and stop are important then DC powered residential stair lifts maybe more appropriate.
- If user is tall then seat depth of the access stair lift is important.
- Stairway must have adequate lighting at top and bottom of stairs.
- Confirm local government requirements for electrical plug.
- Track must be allowed to come all the way to the top landing and bottom landing for safe transfer to the seat of electric stair chair lifts.
