Below we have mentioned 3 useful factors to focus on while purchasing a stair chair. Take a look.
- Type of staircase
The design of the staircase determines the type of stairlift to be installed. For instance:
- Straight staircase – ones with no curves or turns need a standardized straight rail stairlift
- Curved staircase– ones with turns and immediate landings need a custom built curved rail stairlift
The second one will need more time to complete and also cost more than the first one.
- The Capacity of the stairlift
Standard models have a capacity of 300lbs; few can go up to 500lbs. But if a large person uses it then you need a heavy duty lift with a wider seat. A heavy duty model usually requires more space to be installed.
- How does it operate?
Some prefer it electrically powered so that they don’t have to take the burden of charging it. While some prefer it battery powered so that they are not disappointed when there is a power cut.
