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.

Testimonials

I was very impressed by the speed and quality of service initially on the phone. Then the speed of service with respect to quotation and installation. Both John (quote) and Bruce (installation) were extremely polite and helpful.

Ian - Vermont

The young man that installed my stairlift was very polite and friendly. He explained everything to my satisfaction. Also, he cleaned up everything before he left. I will recommend Acorn to anyone who needs this kind of help. 

Dolly -

Very satisfied.

John - New York

The stairlift has allowed us to stay in our home and not downsize. I find the chair easy to use and very helpful. I am no longer winded when at the top of our stairs. I should have allowed my family to get the stairlift years ago.

David R -

I have Parkinson's Disease and I was afraid I was going to tumble down the stairs and get hurt or break something. The Acorn Stairlift has given me back the freedom in my own house. I no longer need for a family member to be present if I want to go up or down my stairs. I belive the stairlift will help me be able to stay in my home longer.
