When considering the purchase of a stair lift, do you know which is best, a curved or straight stair lift? Which lift best matches the abilities of the user as well as the stairs upon which they are to be installed? To determine the best handicap stair lift for your metro Atlanta home, consider the following facts.
Choosing a Curved or Straight Stair Lift
A straight stair lift is installed on straight, regular rise stair tracks that ascend from one floor to another in a straight line. The user must be able to get in and out of the chair.
A curved or custom built stair lift is one that ascends along irregularly patterned steps, or on a circular staircase. As with the straight lift, the user must be able to get situated safely in the seat of the lift.
The installation of two straight stair lifts is used as an economical solution when the stair runs have a landing between the levels. This installation feature requires the user to be able safely to transfer from the first to the second stair lift. This is typically a less expensive choice than a curved or custom stair lift, but must be undertaken carefully.
