All stairlifts are not the same!

The first thing to remember is that all stair lifts were not created equal! Although there is an ever growing demand for stair lift equipment, it is truly amazing how many out dated products are being installed in peoples homes throughout theUK. This old technology equipment can be troublesome for the user - why? - because it's unreliable. Things have moved on since the days of chain drives and trailing cables.

Modern stair lifts, like the ACORN Superglide Stair Lift, are state of the art, in terms of design and manufacture, yet are so simple to install and maintain.

As with most things - there is a baffling amount of choice out there in the marketplace. When choosing a piece of equipment like a stair lift, it is important to ensure that you are making like-for-like comparisons. Think carefully when buying this type of product via the internet. Your first real opportunity to clearly see the features, engineering (and limitations) of your new stair lift, are when it arrives on your doorstep.


Acorn Superglide Stairlifts Safety Features

Electronic and mechanical braking systems

The stairlift is fitted as standard with these essential safety systems to eliminate any possibility of an uncontrolled descent of the stairlift.


Limit sensors

At the end of either an ascent or descent, the stairlift will come to a 'soft stop' due to the limit sensors. These ensure that the stairlift always stops in the correct position


Choice of Control

Acorn Superglide Stairlifts can be controlled by either the simple mechanical 'paddle' at the end of each seat arm, or by way of the infra-red remote control handset, two of which are supplied. The paddle overrides the remote controls, which are ideal when there are 2 users in the house and the lift needs to be 'sent' or 'called' up and down the stairs. The wireless design means that there is no unsightly wall-mounted wiring or control stations.


Seat Belts

For extra security and safety, Acorn Stairlifts can be fitted with an inertia reel lap harness or a static, 3-point, fixed over-shoulder harness.


Swivel seat with locking catch

The stairlift seat swivels and locks in position, making mounting and dismounting the stairlift easy and safe. The stairlift will not operate unless the seat is in the correct riding position.


Pressure sensitive safety surfaces

There are 5 surfaces / edges that stop the stairlift in event of a collision with any obstruction on the stairway. These are located around the footrest, and on the top and bottom of the carriage.


Diagnostic Digital Display

Mounted on the carriage of the stairlift is a digital display which shows clearly when the lift is in the normal operating position, and also provides invaluable diagnostic information in the unlikely event of a fault with your stairlift.


Slim-line design

The fold-away construction makes the Stair lift unobtrusive and allows full access of the stairs.
