Elder's Stairs / Stairs

Elder's Stairs
Elder's Stairs

The design of Elder’s Stairs reduces the height of a stair effectively, which is kept between 9 and 13 centimeters. Thus, elders can climb stairs smoothly in their homes. What’s better, a flight of Elder’s Stairs does not require additional space, so it can be added at home. Each of its stair tops is chamfered, slanting at an angle of 15 degrees. Thanks to its feature, elders can climb it without any fear of being tripped or any psychological pressure. The unique design of Elder’s Stairs is an effective solution to an elder’s problem with stair-climbing.
