Choosing the right parts to incorporate into your stair’s design is a very critical decision to make. Everything should be chosen based on safety, function, and visual appeal. Safety is ensured when there are no sharp edges or abrasive surfaces found in the parts to be used. Function is dictated by how well the parts fit together, with no loose baluster or wobbly stair rails. The visual appeal is how the parts when incorporated into a single design will look. The resulting stairs should be coherent to the space where the stairs are installed. Its impact is seen on how well it blends with the existing furnishings or how it compliments the space’s design elements.
The Summit Stair Lift: This is a low cost home stair lift. The company only makes straight stair lifts. The Summit chair lift is made to be a no-frills but reliable handicap stair lift. It uses technology that is now considered old-fashioned by most leading stair lift manufacturers; it uses a cable system rather than rack and pinion to drag the chair along the track, and the Summit stair lift is mains powered rather than battery powered. Other manufacturers switched to rack and pinion battery powered stair lifts because they give a smoother ride. You do get basic safety systems with the Summit stair lift such as a sensor on the footrest to detect obstacles, a seat belt and cable tensioning. Won’t you won’t get the more sophisticated safety features offered by other manufacturers. All in all, the Summit stair lift is for those on a small budget.
But choosing the best stair lift for one’s home can be problematic with so many stair chair lifts on offer. You need to be careful and to take your time when choosing a home stair lift. You should always seek professional advice before you buy a stair lift. Don’t just talk to stair lift suppliers; talk to your community occupational therapist or friends who might already have a handicap stair lift in their home. You should also look at as many makes of stair lifts and talk to at least 3 different dealerships. Talking to a dealer is important; don’t buy from a dealer on the internet if they don’t also have a phone number - if you have any problems later, chances are you won’t get any answers back by email. If you can, go in person to a stair lift showroom and try out the chairs yourself. Try to go with a relative of friend.
Building stairs is one of the most challenging, time consuming building projects for most builders. Not all stair construction methods are equal. Some are much more user friendly and cost effective than others. Of course, in this economy, you need to save every penny on your deck stairs, basement stairs, or interior stairs. It’s interesting that many people with minimal experience are willing to tackle a simple deck project for the first time, but hit a brick wall when it comes to building stairs. It just seems complicated and out of reach for people with little or no experience. The good news is "you can build that stair".
