Optional Extras

Acorn 120 Straight Hinge Demonstration

Manual Hinge

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

The lower section of the rail can be folded up and out of the way manually, allowing greater access at the foot of the stairs.

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