When not in use, the seat, foot rest and armrests lift up so they do not interfere with normal passage in the stairway or landing. Because a stairlift rail extends to the lower landing so the user can safely transfer, a door or passageway next to the staircase could be partially obstructed. But Interstate Lift can install a power-hinged rail that allows the track to raise out of the way when not in use, and automatically lower when needed. The remote control can send the chair upstairs and fold the track out of the way.
Will the stairlift block my staircase? Will it interfere with doorways next to the staircase?
