Why a Stairlift?

Our range of stairlifts is designed to be easy to use, and all incorporate the very best in design, British engineering, and safety features.

All of Acorn’s current stairlifts have been independently tested and certified to comply with the newest European safety standard for stairlifts, BS EN 81-40:2008, as well as the Worldwide standard for stairlifts, ISO 9836-2:2000.

Like many of our other customers worldwide, you’ll wonder why you hadn’t chosen one of our stairlifts sooner.

Stairlifts cost a lot of money; typically tens of thousands of pounds to install?

At Acorn we have invested heavily in state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, to make owning a stairlift available to anyone.

My home will need to have extra building work to have one installed?

All our stairlifts are built to be easy to fit, with minimal disruption to your home. Our stairlift’s adapter plugs in to any existing dedicated UK electrical socket.

Stairlifts are complicated, noisy and expensive to run?

Not at all! When our stairlifts are in operation, you will be impressed by the lack of disturbance, its quiet energy-efficient running and its simplicity.

I feel stupid buying and owning a stairlift, I feel like there’s something wrong with me?

Every 8 minutes an Acorn stairlift is installed somewhere in the world, with many customers wishing they had gone ahead earlier, so owning a stairlift has never been more popular.

Key stairlift features to look for

Controls that are easy to use

All our stairlifts have been stringently tested by the Arthritis Foundation and awarded with the prestigious ease-of-use commendation.

Digital readout display

Shows the status of the stairlift and uses simple display codes to let you know of any faults.

On-board safety sensors

Sensors around the carriage and footplate are activated if the stairlift comes into contact with anything on the stairs which may cause an obstruction and will safely bring the lift to a halt.

A seat that swivels and locks

This makes it safer exiting the stairlift at the top of stairs.

It acts as an extra safety barrier to avoid falling after leaving the stairlift seat.
