Safety Features & Upgrade Options for Church Stair Lifts
Stair lifts come with many safety features to provide users with a peace of mind while using the lift. The standard safety features of the the Bruno stair lift models we offer for church and place of worship stair lift installations are listed below:
- Retractable seat belt allows users of the lift to stay secured in the seat while riding up or down the stairs
- Safety sensors built into the footrest and carriage, will stop the lift if anything is detected in it's path of travel
- Offset swivel seat allows for a safe exit away from the stairs at the top landing of the staircase
- Folding components -- seat, armrests, and footrest fold upward when the lift is not in use to allow others to use the stairs
- Remote controls for when the chair is at the bottom landing, but is needed to be used by someone at the top landing, or vice versa
There are also many upgrade options that can be added to further enhance safety and comfort for all users of the lift. A power folding rail, whether it be manual or powered, is a common option selected. Folding rails prevent the rail from becoming a trapping hazard if the staircase ends in a hallway that receives lots of foot traffic, or if it is near a doorway. Compare manual folding rails vs. power folding rails for stair lifts.
Some of the other commonly added options are a power swivel seat, larger seat pad, and power folding footrest. If you are interested in matching the upholstery of the seat to the color of the church walls or flooring, there are color options available ad an additional cost. One of our access sales consultant will be able to help you decide if an option will be needed for your stair lift.
