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.

Very good on making all of the appointments on time. Installation was exceptionally clean and the installer Todd Harmon was very thorough in his explanation on the lifts use. The salesman was also excellent – Gregg Hanna. The original lady on the phone on the phone was very pleasant in giving me the initial information about the 130 stairlift.

So far, it has been an excellent way for my son-in-law to be a regular part of the family when he visits. He no longer has to stay in one confined area. It is fantastic! Our installer was very informative and helped us make proper adjustments!
