Outdoor Stairlifts: A Different Approach to Accessibility

Nathan Colburn Articles

When we say stairlift, most people automatically think of their stairs inside their home. Everyone can see a mental picture of a person safely riding a stairlift down steep basement stairs or up a curved staircase to their master suite. However, most people don’t think of taking a stairlift off their back deck or down their front steps. Luckily, Bruno makes having a stairlift outside your home an option.

Enter and Exit Your Home with Ease

When we think of getting into the front door of the home or getting off an elevated back deck, some of the most common options that come to mind are a wheelchair ramp or a wheelchair lift. Depending on the configuration of your home and the surrounding landscape, a large ramp or wheelchair lift may not be ideal or possible. In these instances, an outdoor stairlift could be the answer. An outdoor lift allows you to enjoy the backyard of your home, get to your vehicle and make it easy for guests with accessibility challenges to get into your home. Outdoor lifts can be placed on extended rails that will allow you to access a boat dock, a second-floor apartment, and can be fitted to curved staircases and paths.

Designed for the Elements

Just like the indoor models, the Bruno outdoor stairlifts combine study design and reliability for an easy to use solution. A weatherproof cover travels with the chair on the stairlift to keep your chair protected from the elements. A Marine grade vinyl padded seat and armrests are designed to withstand all conditions and the flip-up arms, folding footrest and seat give you maximum walkway clearance on the steps. The anodized aluminum rail and covered gear rack can weather the ice, snow or rain your lift may be exposed to. Performance tested to -125 degrees below zero, an outdoor stairlift from Bruno can tolerate even the coldest conditions.
