Everyone agrees it is important to be cautious around stairs, as many stair accidents do occur in family homes. When you consider adding a stair lift to a stair in your Atlanta home, you might be inclined to think that you are creating more of a safety hazard. In fact, stair lifts are very safe.
Stair lifts are fitted with a swiveling chair which allows the rider to easily board and dismount from the device. Swivel chairs lock into place during operation for added safety. Without this feature, a lift user may fall down the stairs as he or she attempts to disembark.
The stair lifts offered by Stair Lifts for Atlanta are equipped with a variety of safety features for the user’s convenience and peace of mind. The Sterling 1000 stair lift offers safety features such as a lockable control pad under the arm, a handheld remote control unit, and safety sensors that stop the unit if obstructions are encountered while in operation.
