The Acorn Sit/Stand Stairlift

A solution for a variety of mobility requirements

A straight stairlift is the ultimate staircase solution, giving you the full use of the home you love. Blending seamlessly into your home, with a smooth start and stop mechanism, you can glide effortlessly up and down the stairs.

Continually developed, improved and refined over many years, the Acorn 130 is the direct descendant of our very first straight stairlift, the Acorn Superglide.
