    Stair gate

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering what people do for a stair gate whilst also having a stair lift.

    Many thanks.

    Tom.

    Hi Tom,

    That's actually a very good question. The stair lifts are designed to move up until the top of the stairs, so this would leave no room for a stair gate. Unfortunately, we don't have any information about stair gates in our database. We would suggest talking to an Occupational Therapist (Social Services) to see if they know of any solutions for this problem. Also try contacting Remap (http://www.remap.org.uk/), a group of volunteers that make or modify equipment for people with disabilities. They might be able to make a stair gate that goes around your stair lift.

    Kind regards,
    DLF team
