When most people think about a stair lift, the standard straight stair chairs are the ones that most often come to mind. The majority of homes have a basic, wooden, straight stairway. People often ask how wide the stairs need to be to accommodate a stair lift. We tell them that if the stairs are 32 inches wide or wider, you can install a stairlift on it. However, a person’s height and some other factors can impact whether a lift will work on a narrower set of stairs. That’s why we like to do a home visit; we want to make sure the lift is right for you AND your home.This is just one of the many reasons All-Ways Accessible is known for providing value to it's customers.
The biggest misconception about stair lifts is that the rail is installed on the wall, when in fact, with almost every straight stairlift, the rails are bolted to the stairway. If your stairway is made of something other than wood, that doesn’t mean you can’t install a stair lift – it just means it will take some extra special care to install it properly. Because straight stair lifts are the most common chair lift option, All-Ways Accessible maintains an inventory of two different brands so we are ready to install your stairlift as quickly as possible.
