Stairs can cause elderly users and people with disabilities to fall. They
can prevent elderly occupants from going upstairs, forcing them to live
downstairs or move out.
This is beacuse:
Steps are not big enough for users’ feet
There is not enough grip on the steps
Steps blend together, making it difficult for those with visual impairments
A suite of custom fit accessories for your stairs that provide:
More foot space on
Better grip Better visibility
