Optional Extras

Acorn 180 Curved Hinge Demonstration

Automatic Powered Hinge

When there is an opening or doorway at the foot of the stairs an automatic powered hinged rail solves this problem.

The rail has a folding section at the bottom that lifts up and out of the way automatically as the stairlift travels up staircase leaving the open area at the bottom clear. When the stairlift comes back down again, the rail automatically lowers, allowing the user to safely get off the lift at downstairs.

When you park the stairlift the folding section of rail stands neatly out of the way with no obstruction.

Customer Reviews

My knees just did not have the strength in them to function without considerable pain. Just to get myself up stairs was an effort and to consider carrying something additional with me had become almost impossible. Now we have an Acorn chair lift and my life has taken on a new dimension. I do not have any where near the pain that I had previously experienced.

It is such an easy to operate system, comfortable and reliable and always at the ready to transport me. To be honest, I wish I had made the decision to install one earlier. The management and staff at Acorn Stairlifts were extremely helpful to deal with and the installation taken care of hassle free. Their attention to detail and service was excellent.

I had an operation for my knees and the stairlift helps me get up from the garage to the house. It’s very smooth and efficient and I would happily recommend Acorn and a stairlift to anyone in my position.

I couldn’t negotiate down to my studio before the stairlift was installed, and now I have regained my access. The stairlift has worked really well for me to allow me to work.
