Optional Extras

Acorn 180 Curved Hinge Demonstration

Automatic Powered Hinge

If there is a doorway near the foot of the stairs the optional automatic powered hinged rail is ideal.

The lower section of the rail folds up and out of the way automatically as the stairlift travels up and down the staircase, allowing greater access at the foot of the stairs. The powered hinge raises and lowers automatically as the stairlift travels up and down the staircase.

When the stairlift is not is use, the rail is neatly out of the way and causes no obstruction.

Madolyn,

The salesperson was very efficient and explained all quickly (not wasting my time) and thoroughly. The tech, Juan, who installed the lifts, was excellent! He did a great job.

Clarence,

Our installer was very professional. He explained his install process and gave great instructions for use. He was very kind with my father (95 years old) when he trained him on the stairlift. We were very pleased with the process.

We started out using it right away. Very helpful for my wife who has had both knees replaced plus back surgery. I have had 3 knee surgeries. Pacemaker, 7 stints. We hope this stairlift will give us many more years in our home. We are both up in the 80-year bracket. Thank you for all of your help and installation services.
