Many people are interested in stairlifts because of how much they can improve their quality of life. Although they are interested in them, they still have quite a few reservations. Here is a look at some of the most common concerns that people have when deciding if they will benefit from a new stairlift.
Will it Fit in My House?
A big concern people have regarding having new stairlifts in Luton installed is if they will fit inside the home and on the staircase. Many people worry that the stairlift seat will stick out onto the staircase and get in the way. The good news is that the seat can be folded away or moved around the corner to not block the stairs.
- Another concern is the type of staircase that a home has. Many people with unusually shaped staircases worry that a lift won’t fit. Luckily, there are several stairlift designs to choose from, and some companies even do custom-ordered ones.
Different Features to Choose From
Another concern people have is knowing what features to choose for their new stairlift. One of the most common features is a folding seat. Most people prefer this one because it keeps the stairlift out of the way when not in use.
Here is a look at other features that you might wish to include:
- Retractable belts or a safety harness (seat belts come standard)
- Safety sensors to stop the chair if anything is in the way
- Swivel seats
- Child safety locks
- Rail charger or charger at top and bottom
