The History of Acorn Stairlifts

Acorn Stairlifts was formed in 1992. The business started by buying, reconditioning and reselling used stairlifts, as well as buying new lifts from manufacturers. Within a very short period of time, demand surpassed supply as customers began to take notice of the distinct value that the new solution provides.

The Design of Acorn Stairlifts

The great interest in the solutions that Acorn provided led to the design and manufacture of Acorn?s own stairlift: The Acorn Superglide Stairlift. Soon after, this new stairlift became a market leader, and to this day remains at the forefront of stairlift technology.

The Acorn Superglide Stairlift was designed to be simple, easy to install, and maintain, taking away many of the difficulties experienced with previous stairlift models. With the acquisition of the manufacturing facilities for the motor and gearbox, Acorn gained complete control over the quality of their solution. The Superglide 120 became the standard for superior quality and advanced stairlift technology.

Innovative technology

Through the years, many mechanisms from the first Acorn Superglide Stairlifts have been modified to adapt to advancing technology. Acorn Stairlifts prides itself with creation of contemporary design, use of latest innovations and the manufacture of top quality components. Acorn Stairlifts has pioneered the use of direct current (DC) batteries, the FastTrack system, and Smart-Level technology.

Acorn is now the leading global stairlift company, reaching its customers directly with more than 50,000 top-of-the-line stairlifts each year.
