Our product

We believe that having difficulties with your stairs should not stop you from having an independent lifestyle.

At Acorn, your safety is our main concern so we designed and manufactured our own stairlift - one that had all of the outdated stair lift features removed. The Acorn 120 Superglide Stairlift was born, soon to become a market leader, and to this day remains at the forefront of stairlift technology. For more complex staircases, the Acorn 180  provides the ultimate in versatility, offering a unique solution, tailor-made for curved staircases and equipped with all the standard features for safety and comfort as the Superglide.

Our stairlifts are designed for you - simple to use and offering the very best in stairlift technology, maintenance-free operation, and standard safety features for years of trouble-free use.
Acorn Technology and Innovation
Acorn Advanced Technology

The Acorn Superglide Rack and Pinion Drive and Rail Track System use a secure structure to provide a smooth and stable ride up and down the stairs.

Technology and Innovation assures that you are safe and absolutely secure at all times. Acorn utilizes a chassis system of eight rollers, giving a surface contact area at least four times greater holding capability than competing products.

Acorn 80 Curved Stairlift - Acorn 120 Superglide Straight Stairlift
Acorn Stairlifts are designed and tested to industry standards and have the following features:

  • Safety Sensors that automatically cut off power to the lift when the sensors are activated.
  • Swivel Seats enable you to sit on and get off of the stairlift, without twisting your body.
  • Smooth starting and stopping means that your stairlift begins to travel and stop with such smoothness that you hardly even notice - no jarring at the top or bottom of your stairs.
  • DC Power that means that it is smooth and near silent in operation and, in the event of a power outage, your stairlift won't shudder to a halt, but continue safely to the end of your journey.
  • Remote controls allow you to simply call and send the stairlift, so that if a friend or partner should wish to use the lift, you can send it back to them once you've used it.
  • Simple switch or paddle controls makes operating your stairlift simplicity itself, with a convenient switch on the arm of the chair making it possible for a user with limited finger dexterity to use it with ease.
  • A safety belt means you are safe and secure whilst using the stairlift, giving you peace of mind.
  • A digital diagnostic display means that in the unlikely event of a fault, the stairlift is equipped with smart technology that recognizes, identifies, and displays a fault code showing the stair lift status so it can be easily diagnosed.
  • 294 lb weight capacity (350 lb available)
  • Folding Seat & Footrest - the stairs remain available for use by others, as the seat, arms and footrest fold easily away when not in use.
  • Five Safety sensors - if an obstruction is encountered, the safety sensors will stop the carriage until the obstruction is cleared.

With it's stylish design, the Acorn Stairlift will blend subtly into any home. All of our lifts come standard with everything included to ensure the user a safe and comfortable ride. Years of research have gone into making the Acorn Stairlift one of the safest stairlifts available today, offering you total peace of mind.
