While the seats lack the upholstered seat cushion, they still offer all the essential safety and comfort features that set these stairlift manufacturers apart from their competitors.
Outdoor stairlift Facts
Because the chair lift will be used outside, it needs to be able to handle a large variety of different weather conditions. Here in Australia, we have to mainly deal with high temperatures in summer and possibly snow in some regions of Tasmania, New South Wales and Victoria. Due to these diverse requirements, specialised materials need to be used to protect any vulnerable components from the elements.
Outdoor stairlifts come with a weather protection cover, while it is not necessary to use this at all times, it is recommended to use it as often as possible to offer additional protection. Further, it is advisable to set the chair lift up in a way where it received some cover, while not in use, this could be the roof, carport or any other structure. This will further protect your stair lift and help to keep it running smoother for longer.
Pricing of an outside stair lift is usually slightly dearer than the same inside model. This is because the rails and components require additional coating and treatments to stop them from rusting and stop other heat or water-related damages.
Outside lift installations are very similar to indoor installations. Just like it is the case with indoor lifts, Straight external lifts will be quicker to install than curved outdoor chair lifts. They should only be carried out by qualified and trained technicians and usually take between 2-6 hours depending on the size and style of the chairlift being installed.
