Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

Stairlifts: 5 Things You Should Know Before Installation

Stairlifts Preferred Elevator

Stairlifts make moving up and down the steps much easier

Stairlifts benefit anyone who has mobility issues. If you desire to age in place (stay in your home), like many Americans, you’ll indeed see the benefits that stairlift installation can offer. If you’re considering adding a stairlift to your home, we’re sure you have questions, and we’re happy to answer them. Here are five useful things to know before stairlift installation occurs in your home. 

We Customize Stairlifts

Stairlift installation comes with complexity in the sense where you can’t merely order one from Amazon and hire a technician to install it. Stairlifts need customization so that they’ll run optimally, and more importantly, be safe to use. We customize stairlifts so that they’ll fit perfectly alongside your steps. Whether you own a straight or curved stairwell, small or large, Preferred Elevator can get the job done. 

Stairlifts Have Attachable Rails

A stairlift already has a rail that our technicians will attach to your stairs. A common misconception is that a stairlift uses up wall space. Our lifts aren’t bulky or extraneous. They are neat and discrete with narrow rails and flip-up seats to make room for others who are walking up and down the stairs.

Stairlift Installation is A Relatively Quick Process

Stairlift installation is done in just a few hours! Our team wants to help you gain your independence back and have you back in action quickly to achieve your daily tasks as soon as possible. Depending on the size of the stairwell, some installation processes may take more time, but it will always be done in 1 day. 

Stairlifts Are Pretty Generous Regarding Size

Our manufacturer, Bruno, offers stairlifts that accommodate anyone weighing between up to 400 pounds with generously-sized seat and footrest options. So not only can stairlifts accomodate most staircases, but they can accommodate most people as well! 

Stairlift Installation Doesn’t Have to Break the Bank.

Stairlifts can be affordable in several ways. Bruno offers TimePayment financing, which helps you finance the total amount into affordable, monthly payments. When you apply online, you’ll get an instant credit decision. State grants, charitable funds, and community organizations also exist so that adding extra comfort and convenience to your home doesn’t have to break the bank. Also, another benefit is that if your doctor approves you needing a stairlift, this is tax-deductible. Finally, it’s hard to put a price on aging in place. It’s invaluable. Even with mobility issues, you don’t have to give up aging in the home that you love.
