(No Ratings Yet)

Stair lifts have been around for close to 90 years. First developed in the 1920’s they have evolved into a very reliable and valuable product. For many thousands of Americans stair lifts provide an essential link between the different levels of their houses. It used to be that when you started to get older the first thing you did was sell your home and move into a single story home. This is no longer necessary because stair lifts can be safely installed in hours at a very affordable rate.

In almost all instances it is very easy to install stair lifts in your home. The exception to this is when your stairs are incredibly narrow or curved. It can be very hard to watch someone you love struggle to get up or down the stairs. Even worse is the worry you can feel when you think about them doing it by their self when there is no one there to give them a helping hand.

Stair lifts can allow the user to easily go up and down the stairs at the push of a button. While the installation is usually very simple and straightforward it is necessary to get an accurate measurement of your stairs. This can be done in several easy steps:

– Using a measuring tape, measure the distance from the top landing to the floor at the bottom of the steps. Measure in a straight line and make sure the measuring tape is tight and does not sag between steps.

– Next, using the same method as before, measure the distance from the landing to the bottom step.

– You will now need to measure the width of the stairs. Measure long ways across the bottom step.

– Next measure the distance from the bottom step to the nearest obstruction, such as a wall or door.

– You are almost done now. All you need to do is measure the height and length of one of your steps.

After you have an accurate measurement of your steps the installation will be simple and straight forward. Stair lifts can restore your confidence and make you feel safe again when you traverse the stairs in your home. Do not hesitate another moment, purchase a stair lift and make a decision that could very well save your life.
