Stairs are an essential part of most homes and are also generally the most dangerous place of a home. If you live in a home that has stairs it is important to always pay attention when climbing the stairs It is also important to teach any children that use the stairs to be careful and not use them as a play toy. If you are at all unsteady on the stairs as might be the case of those effected by injury or illness, a stair lifting aid, like a stair lift, might be a good option.
Safety in using stairs should be the main concern when planning the stairs. Its form and design should be rooted on safety. Beauty is useless without proper function. Since a stair’s function is to safely take people to different levels in a multi-level home or building, it should be made in a way that will not compromise those who will be using it. A good way to ensure its safety is to start at the beginning of the installation of the stairs itself. A stair’s foundation lies on the quality of the stair parts used. Therefore, investing in good quality stair parts is a must for ever homeowner and stair builder.
There is a growing, and worrying, trend for home stair lifts to be sold without any installation. The buyer is told that self-installation is easy and can be done by anyone with basic DIY skills. However, AMEA (Accessibility Equipment Manufacturer’s Association) and the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) strongly advise against self-installation of a home stair lift. A reputable stair lift supplier will insist on doing the installation. Also, remember to ask about warranty and after sales service. A reputable dealer will offer both; look for a dealership that offers 24/7 telephone support so that you’ll get instant help when you need it. Here are some brief stair lift reviews of some leading makes.
Consider Installing it Yourself: This actually applies to both new and used stair lifts. Most stair lifts that are made for a straight staircase can be installed fairly quickly and using only normal household tools. Talk with the dealer about the installation process and look at the installation instructions. If it seems like something you feel comfortable doing, you can save money by doing the installation yourself. If you don’t feel comfortable though, don’t do it and instead have the dealer arrange the installation.
