Commercial Straight Stair lift

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

There are laws that in place that regulate that public places must be wheel chair accessible and those with disabilities.  Plans for how these people will get around must be in the blue prints for the construction of new buildings.  If not, these plans wouldn’t get the approval needed to okay construction.

The two simplest ways that plans can handle this condition is to either build the building as a single floor where there is no need for stairs, or to build ramps and elevators to allow changing between floors.

If either of these don’t apply or an older building is being updated to allow for more mobile access by people with wheel chairs or other conditions, the construction company can add in a commercial straight stair lift or some other commercial stair lift.

A commercial straight stair lift is a sliding chair that is added to a straight stair case with a chair or platform that the individual will sit on or stand on, and be moved between floors.  These type of stair lifts can be added any type or size of stair case.

Typically these type of stair lifts don’t have swivel chairs for people to sit on, because those type of stair lifts only can be used by people without wheel chairs.  Because of the common use of wheel chairs and other devices to move people around, most commercial stair lifts involve a platform to move people up and down the stairs.
