Acorn 130 Stairlifts Ride Quality

  • Smoothest, quietest and most luxurious ride quality
  • Unique rail profile and chassis roller system
  • DC power
  • Rack and pinion drive systems
  • Superb feeling of safety and stability


The peerless ride quality is attributed to our unique rail profile and chassis roller system working in conjunction with the DC power and rack and pinion drive systems. Typically, other stairlifts feature four, or sometimes six, chassis rollers and a box section rail. The Acorn 130 stairlift has eight rollers, giving a surface contact area at least four times greater than competitor products. Such features, along with our unique double-tube rail profile, gives the smoothest, quietest and most luxurious ride quality currently available, and a superb feeling of safety and stability when using the stairlift. 


Easy to use


  • Whisper-quiet operation
  • Simple paddle and infra-red remote control operation
  • ‘Soft start / soft stop’ technology
  • Swivel seat
  • Diagnostic digital display
  • Folding Seat


All of the easy-to-use features are built into each stairlift Acorn manufacture. Having a fold-away footrest means the stairs remain available for use by others when the stairlift is not in use. Due to the stairlifts DC power supply noise levels are at whisper quiet levels. The lift can be ’sent’ or ‘called’ to wherever it is needed by using the infra-red remote control. There is no jolting or lurching as the lift starts or finishes its journey. Swivel seat with locking catch – ensures easy mounting and dismounting from the stairlift. The lift will not operate unless the seat is in the correct riding position. The diagnostic digital display mounted on the stairlift carriage shows clearly when the lift is in the normal operating position and also provides invaluable diagnostic information in the unlikely event of a fault with your stairlift. 


Safe to use

  • Designed to meet British standards (BS5776-1996)
  • Additional certification granted by TRL EMC
  • Pressure-sensitive safety surfaces
  • Limit sensors
  • Dual electronic and mechanical braking systems
  • Lockable isolation switch
  • 24 Volt DC operation


Designed to meet BS5776-1996 eliminating any risk of electric shock. Dual electronic and mechanical braking systems eliminate the possibility of an uncontrolled descent. Lockable isolation switch to ensure that the stairlift always stops in the correct position. Pressure-sensitive safety surfaces that prevent the lift from colliding with any obstruction on the stairway. These are located around the footrest, and on the top and bottom of the carriage. 


Easy to maintain

  • Stairlifts fit to stair treads
  • Factory-prepared for installation
  • No mains wiring necessary
  • Maintenance free batteries
  • Infra-red remote controls
Acorn Stairlifts is officially the first stairlift
company to earn the prestigious
