Stairlifts Sutton Coldfield
What sort of stairlift do I need ~ straight or curved?
- If you have a staircase with any turns or bends in it, or even if you have a spiral staircase, then you need a curved stairlift that can travel around corners. If you have a straight staircase, however, that has a half landing that would also require a curved stairlift, as it has to bend where it meets the half landing.
- Tracks can be manufactured to fit any stair layout enabling users to safely access any number of flights if required without having to stop between each flight. Therefore if you live in a three-storey house this would present no problem.
- Most rails run on the side nearest the wall but, depending on the staircase layout, could also be fitted to the other side if there are no obstructions at the bottom or top.
- A curved stairlift would have to be made to measure to ensure an exact fit and would therefore be more expensive than a straightforward straight one.
- British Safety Standards governs the speed that a stairlift is allowed to travel at and this is based on a gentle safe walking pace.
- The paramount consideration is safety and a cut-out operates to ensure that the lift will not start until the user is strapped in securely and no obstacles are in the path of the stairlift.
- To ensure that the chair is balanced evenly as it travels around any variation in the staircase, a curved stairlift is fitted with a levelling mechanism. This is also aimed to reduce wear and tear on the unit.
- A curved stairlift is charged on strips at the bottom and top of the rail. In the event of a power cut, the battery will last for several journeys.
