Undoubtedly, stair chairs are one of the main options for saving stairs with ease, without the need for works and at a reasonable price.
Chairs for stairs, comfort and safety
When we talk about stair chairs, we make it one of the main solutions to help elderly people or those with mobility problems to go up and down stairs (MONTASCALE PER ANZIANI).
This stair lift system consists of a chair that moves along guides or rails following the path of the ladder to be saved.
The installation of the guidance system through which the chair moves can be fixed directly to the wall or to the staircase through special supports in a simple and fast way.
Thanks to this system, stair chairs can save almost any type of staircase regardless of its shape, slope or route , occupying a minimum space.
In addition, once its use is over, the chair can be folded at one end of the staircase, which allows a minimum space to be occupied, allowing greater comfort for the rest of the users.
The current stair lift systems have progressive starts and stops, which together with its ergonomic seat, provides great comfort and running comfort in the operation of the elevator.
On the other hand, the different security systems incorporated in the chair, such as the different anti-obstacle sensors, the safety belt or harness or its operating system with permanent pulsation, provide maximum autonomy when saving the stairs of the house or building without danger.
The chairs for stairs work with rechargeable batteries , which allows to finish the route or even to realize some more, in case of failure of the electrical supply.
Its installation is fast and without the need to carry out works or reforms, it will only be necessary to provide an outlet for recharging the batteries.
As regards the models of electric chairs for stairs, they are mainly divided into two types; the models for straight stairs and those designed to save curved staircases .
Chairs for straight stairs, the most economic model
In the event that the staircase to be conserved consists of a straight section and without intermediate landings, it will be a straight stair lift chair , this model is much more economical than the curved model, mainly due to:
The guide does not have to be made to measure as in the case of stairs with intermediate forms or landings that vary the slopes
The chair’s own machinery is simpler to always have to move on a constant slope without having to save curves or shapes.
Chairs for curved stairs, adaptability to any staircase
When the staircase to be saved has intermediate landings that vary its slope or the shape of it incorporates curves will be necessary to install a chair for curved stairs , this model is more complex to have to adapt to a path with changes of slopes and variable shapes .
On the other hand, the manufacture of the guide, which moves the chair for stairs, has to be fully adjusted to the ladder in order to occupy a minimum space, which means that it must be made completely to measure in most of cases.
These two factors imply a greater economic cost of this model with respect to the straight section.
