Platform for stair lift
Various possibilities were considered, but finally, the whole stairlift was lowered by 50mm. This involved creating a well at the bottom to support and accommodate the structural base of the stairlift rail and the foot plate of the chair assembly. The foot plate now stops flush with the floor both at the top and the bottom of the stairs.
The risks of tripping and falling have been eliminated and the stairlift can be used much more easily.
