Acorn Stairlift Features
||Electronic and mechanical braking
The stairlift is fitted with these essential safety systems to
eliminate any possibility of an uncontrolled descent of the stairlift.
Operating local throughout Long Island, we are one of the Local leading suppliers of new stairlifts and reconditioned stairlifts. Along with our unique stairlift rental service, we have firmly established a reputation for quality, customer satisfaction and value for money.
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
An Acorn stairlift can be controlled via 2 methods, a simple 'paddle
switch' and the infra-red remote control. The 'paddle switch' control is
located at the end of both arm rests of the stairlift and can be operated
by hand. You will receive two infra-red remotes with every stairlift which
enables you to call the stairlift to either end of the stairs. The
infra-red remote is wireless so there are no messy cables trailing around
your home, or unsightly wall mounted control stations. If both remotes are
used at the same time, the paddle switches will override the remote
controls, that means that the person on the stairlift will be in control
of the stairlift.
All Acorn stairlifts come with an inertial reel lap harness, this is
like a seat belt in a car, and will keep you securely on the seat of the
stairlift at all times. Safety is a priority when going up the stairs.
||Swivel seat with
To allow easier mounting and dismounting of a stairlift, an Acorn
stairlift comes with a swivel seat. The swivel seat locks in position via
a catch located on the seat which enables you can use the stairlift with
ease. The stairlift will not operate unless the seat is in the correct
riding position, this means that you can be confident that your journey on
the stairs will be safe and secure..
If there is an obstruction on the stairs, our stairlifts will detect it
with at least one of the five pressure sensitive surfaces situated around
the stairlift. If an obstruction is detected, the Acorn stairlift will
cease movement so you can move the obstruction. The pressure sensitive
surfaces are located around the footrest and the top and bottom of the
Mounted on the carriage of the stairlift is a digital display which
shows clearly when the lift is in the normal operating position. Also it
provides invaluable diagnostic information in the unlikely event of a
fault with your stairlift.
The fold-away construction makes the stairlift unobtrusive and allows
full access of the stairs.
||Sit and Stand Frame
With a sit/stand frame, you can choose whether to use the stairs in
either the usual seated position or to stand on the footrest. With a
special folding steady/security bar for stability, it is ideal for anybody
who may have problems bending their knees, or where multiple users with
different requirements will be using the stairlift.
The Superglide Perch Stairlift may also be suitable.
The lower section of the rail folds up and out of the way when not in
use, allowing greater access at the foot of the stairs. The option of a
hinged rail is ideal when there may a doorway near the foot of the stairs.
When the stairlift is not is use, the rail is neatly out of the way and
causes no obstruction.
||Key Locking System
All Acorn stairlifts can be locked, preventing unauthorized use, with a

Modern stairlifts, like the Acorn Superglide Stairlift, are state of
the art in terms of design and manufacture and yet are so simple to
install and maintain.
There is an ever growing demand for stairlifts in America, and there
are many out dated products still available and being installed in
people's homes. These 'old style' stairlifts can be troublesome for the
user - why? They are unreliable. Things have moved on since the days of
chain drives and trailing cables.
