Could summer mean it’s time to think about an outdoor stairlift?

Now that summer is here there’s never been a better time to think about getting an outdoor stairlift.

When people have mobility problems it can become increasingly difficult to get outside. But the physical and psychological benefits of fresh air and sunshine are well documented.

We all like to spend time in the sun – and there’s no reason why those who struggle to get around should be deprived of that chance.

Outdoor stairlifts are an option

Most people are familiar with the concept of indoor stairlifts, but perhaps not so many realise that outdoor stairlifts are also an option.

It’s so important to be able to make the most of our gardens and to enjoy sitting outside with friends and family – whether for a barbecue in the summer or a blast of fresh air in the winter.

No-one should have to feel like a prisoner in their own home – but the layout of many outdoor spaces makes them impractical for anyone with restricted mobility. There could be steps or slopes, or the ground could be rocky or slippy. In winter ice or snow could make steps difficult to navigate and potentially dangerous.

But none of these issues are insurmountable with the help of an outdoor stairlift. And the ability to get safely outside will also make it easier for people with mobility issues to enjoy the great outdoors with car trips or excursions.

How is an outdoor stairlift different?

The principle is much the same as for an indoor stairlift, but obviously equipment designed for outdoor use needs to be robust enough  to withstand whatever the elements might throw at it. Outdoor stairlifts are built to cope with a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions. They are also designed to remain operational during a downpour. A waterproof cover can help keep the seat dry, clean and ready for its next journey.

Whether you’re looking for a durable design or a waterproof cover Halton can provide you with the perfect stairlift for your outdoor space.

What to think about when choosing a stairlift

Just as with indoor stairlifts you should think about whether the stairwell is straight or curved. You should also factor in whether you have a single or double rail.

An outdoor stair lift can play a big part in improving the quality of life of a person with mobility problems. As well as giving access to the outside of the property and the garden it can make it so much easier to enjoy the world outside your home.

People who have been keen gardeners in the past can have the chance to still feel connected to the garden they have loved and laboured over for many years. And even half-hearted gardeners can enjoy the benefits of simply being in nature.
