Title
(EN) STAIRWAY STEP ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE MARCHES D'ESCALIER
Abstract
(EN)
A stairway step assembly (70) for use as an aid in climbing a stairway (71). The assembly is particularly useful to elderly and handicapped users who have difficulty climbing a standard stairway due to the height or rise of the standard steps thereof. The assembly provides a means of quickly, economically, and safely altering the step arrangement of the standard stairway with minimal or no modification to the permanent structure of the stairway. The assembly comprises a plurality of step members (72) having predetermined horizontal dimensions and a predetermined height which is approximately one-half the height or rise distance of a standard step. The assembly further comprises an attachment mechanism (73) for connecting the step members in place on the top or horizontal section of standard steps.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un ensemble de marches d'escalier (70) permettant de monter plus facilement un escalier (71). Cet ensemble est particulièrement utile pour les personnes agées et handicapées qui ont des difficultés pour monter un escalier en raison de la hauteur des marches standard. Cet ensemble constitue un moyen permettant de modifier rapidement, avec économie et sécurité la configuration d'un escalier standard avec peu, ou pas, de modifications de la structure permanente de cet escalier. Cet ensemble comprend plusieurs éléments de marche (72) présentant des dimensions horizontales prédéterminées et une hauteur prédéterminée qui correspond approximativement à la moitié de la hauteur d'une marche standard. Cet ensemble comprend, en outre, un mécanisme de fixation (73) pour relier les éléments de marche en position sur le sommet ou la partie horizontale des marches standard.
