Staircase aidThe client was having difficulty in negotiating the full-height risers of a staircase but the disability was not such as to warrant the installation of a stairlift.

Fifteen half-step boxes were made and fixed close to one side of the treads so as to form a full staircase of halfheight risers. The existing carpet and paintwork were matched as closely as possible.

The client can now climb the stairs unaided and for the able-bodied there is negligible obstruction of the stairway. The adaptation is not obvious to the casual visitor and there has been no damage to the structure of the building.
